Jennifer Love Hewitt Strips Down, Dons Racy Lingerie on Client List Premiere

Jennifer Love Hewitt is getting hot and bothered.

When The Client List premieres Sunday on Lifetime, Hewitt will reprise her role as housewife-turned-stripper Samantha Horton in a TV version based on the popular 2011 network flick.

How'd she prep for the role? No, Hewitt didn't just go over and over her lines -- she also took pole dancing lessons! "My mom's like, 'I'm so proud. You're pole dancing and you're going to play a prostitute. Awesome!'" Hewitt told Entertainment Tonight. "It's like, 'Yeah, what you always dreamed about, mama!' But you know, it's a great part."

Watch more of Hewitt's racy TV return in the clip above before The Client List premieres April 8 at 10 p.m. (EST) on Lifetime.
