Jennifer Love Hewitt's mother, Patricia Hewitt, has died from complications of cancer, the actress' representative said Wednesday. She was 67.
"Her family mourns her loss," the rep said in a statement. "She was an angel to all who knew her and they are grateful she is now in a better place. They ask for privacy at this difficult time."
Patricia brought her 10-year-old daughter to L.A. from Texas in 1989 on what turned out to be good advice from a talent scout.
