Two years after photos surfaced of her looking fuller-figured in a bikini, Jennifer Love Hewitt is showing off her bod again.

The actress, 30, was photographed Saturday vacationing with boyfriend Jamie Kennedy in Hawaii. She also was spotted shooting hoops in her bikini and later relaxing on the beach.

Hewitt has come a long way since the flap over her weight. Last year, she posed on the cover of Us Weekly to reveal how she shed 18 pounds after just two weeks.

She said the hoopla over her body made her feel "a little embarrassed. It made me a little sad. It hurt my feelings."

Earlier this year, she rose to Jessica Simpson's defense after bloggers bashed her for her new curves.

"It gets silly," Hewitt told Us. "We're all supposed to look how we're supposed to look. We're made to be different people.

"Not everybody can be super tall and super skinny," she added. "You have to look inside yourself and find your own confidence. It wavers from day to day, but that's human nature."
