Jennifer Love Hewitt understands what it's like to always be picked apart since she's been in front of the camera at such a young age.

"Aging in Hollywood is really hard,” the 44-year-old actress said on the "Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum" podcast. “It's really hard because you can't do anything right.”

The Ghost Whisperer lead brought up how she was called out by some followers for her "unrecognizable" appearance in photos, however, she didn't think the post would blow up like it did.

“I was getting my hair done and I had not a stitch of makeup on so I threw on a filter,” she said. “And it was just a filter that at the time, looked nice in the light at the salon.”

“I really gave it no thought,” she added.

When Love Hewitt started seeing headlines, she was shocked at the backlash.

"And then another place was like, ‘She's unrecognizable and so she's gone to filters because she doesn't want us to know how bad she actually looks now in her 40s,’” she stated. “And I was like, ‘This is crazy right?’”

Fortunately, Love Hewitt took it all in stride, and even posted more photos with "over-the-top, crazy" filters on. Unfortunately, it didn't work in her favor.

“I was like, ‘All natural, no filter,’ like trying to make fun of it, and then they came after me for that and they were like, ‘Well, now she's just defending herself,” she said. “And I realized, I was like, ‘I can do no right.’”

Though the brunette beauty admitted it's hard to not pay attention to the people who "put you down," she said the "majority of people have been very kind to me."

“They've grown up with me. They look like I do now,” she continued. “We're all getting lines and maybe in menopause and who knows what else is coming for us.”

The star, who shares Autumn, Atticus and Aidan with husband Brian Hallisay, said she hopes nothing like this ever happens to her daughter one day.

“It's dangerous what we put on people,” she said. “It's dangerous, I think, to say to women, 'You can't look like you're not 22 to me anymore because I don't know how to take that.'”

“Because I'm 44, and this is what I look like,” she added.
