Clips From Friday: Cynthia Nixon on her Tony nominated role in 'Wit'; Jennifer Love Hewitt on her racy billboard ad

On Friday, Piers Morgan rolled out the red carpet and welcomed two-time Emmy Award winning actress Cynthia Nixon for a candid and revealing primetime interview.

Fresh off a Tony nomination for her starring role in Broadway's "Wit," Nixon drew motivation for her part as a cancer patient, from her own personal bout with the disease:

"You call it a battle with cancer. To me, that seems [like] such a big word," Nixon explained. "I mean, I feel like I - I had a cancer diagnosis... To me, it was like a - a medical bump in the road that is not fun, you know, but you kind of grit your teeth and you get through it."

While that cancer diagnosis helped her relate to the role, she also drew on another experience to help depict the discomfort:

"There is a point later on in the play when my character, Vivian, is in incredible, incredible pain," Nixon detailed. "And my only experience with being in - incredible pain was childbirth."

Also on Friday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Jennifer Love Hewitt to the program. Joining the host in studio, the actress known for "Party of Five" and "Ghost Whisperer" currently stars in Lifetime's "The Client List," a series which featured some very racy billboards upon its launch.

Recently, Jimmy Kimmel used his late night talk show to present the 33-year-old with a giant poster of her own cleavage.

"There was nothing more terrifying in my whole life than turning around and seeing them look like that," Hewitt exclaimed, referring to her own breasts.

Upon receiving criticism, the show released a more reserved version of its promotional campaign, something that surprised the Hollywood veteran:

"Living in L.A. for a really long time I thought the idea was always to have bigger boobs, not smaller," Hewitt noted.

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as the two actresses reveals details about lives lived in front of adoring audiences.

    I'm a JLH collector-completist. This interview was under-promoted and I missed it! How can I get the whole interview?

      investing nothing is cieratn. Maybe besides the fact that nothing will go up forever.Gold is now in a clear 9 month downward channel. So the problem of PMs, that they donb4t produce an annual revenue (dividend, interest) may get relevant. If investors see that gold isnb4t going up anymore, a lot of them will start to sell and by doing so produce a downward spiral. Thatb4s what i predict. But of course, i have no magic bowl to foresee the future. But we are down already almost 400 $ per ounce since August 2011. Gold is losing itb4s status as a 100 % safe habour right now and thatb4s not good for the price of gold.
