Jennifer Love Hewitt kicked off 2011 in style -- flaunting her famous curves in a series of teeny bikinis during her Hawaiian vacation with beau Alex Beh and mom Pat.
And though the actress, 31, works hard to maintain her bod, she and the actor/director even ran a half-marathon in L.A. in October, she admits she's no expert.
"I am in the trenches with those people trying to get older and stay in shape and have it work," Hewitt recently told UsMagazine.com.
Of course the How I Shot Cupid author is no stranger to having her figure critiqued. She famously defended her size-two shape after bikini pics from a 2007 trip to Hawaii with then-fiance Ross McCall (above, right) subjected her to Internet mockery.
"I don’t really have a daily plan, I just try to have most of my calories early in the day and try not to eat too late at night," the self-described sugar lover told Us in October of her stay-in-shape plan. "I think as long as you’re really working out and taking care of yourself, you don’t have to cut out too many things."
