Jennifer Love Hewitt on calling out Adam Levine: I should apologize, he should thank me

Last week, Jennifer Love Hewitt publicly called out now-single The Voice judge Adam Levine for a date. Hewitt was on The Ellen DeGeneres show when she mentioned that Adam is now single and added that “we’d be cute” together. It came across like a desperate move, and it was classic J.Love. This girl cannot talk about anything except her love life. She really should play it much closer to her ample chest if she ever wants to have a successful relationship. J.Love never learns, and she recently compounded her faux pas with a follow up during a radio interview. Hewitt admitted that she never heard from Levine after she said all that about him, and said that she was considering apologizing to him on Twitter. But she was hoping he would have at least thanked her for calling him hot, she reasoned. *Facepalm* (Note that technically the title of this story is not accurate, she said that she was hoping he’d thank her, not that he “should.” I couldn’t fit all that up there so I took liberties.)

But now Love Hewitt is backtracking after her remarks were met by a fury of press articles and silence from Levine.

In a radio interview with Texas DJ Bobby Bones on Friday, she said, “Is there nothing else to talk about?”

And when the radio presenter asked her if anything had happened after she opened up about her celebrity crush, she added, “Absolutely nothing except that everybody is talking about it and Adam Levine will probably never speak to me.

“I feel like I should write him an apology letter on Twitter or something just to say I’m so sorry… I wasn’t thinking that it was gonna turn into this whole thing and I feel bad.”

But the actress admits she is a little upset that Levine hasn’t said anything about her remarks: “I was kind of hoping that he would say thanks for at least thinking that he’s hot. He is hot!”

I don’t really have to go into all the reasons why this was the wrong thing to say, because I covered it all in the last post. Here is my advice to Love Hewitt: get a bunch of women’s dating books from Amazon (I’ve heard that You Lost Him at Hello is good, but there are plenty of others that are just as useful) and read them. Yes some of them seem offensive and like you’re playing games and pretending to be someone you’re not, but she needs to learn these things.

Love Hewitt’s “Client List” premiered on Lifetime last night. As part of her preparations, Hewitt tweeted video of herself and a girlfriend wearing tiaras prior to watching the show. She tweeted “Getting ready! Champagne, cupcakes, and friends…. Let’s do this!!!” Hewitt also shared a photo of her mother’s Easter present to her – a giant pink bunny. As for her single status, Hewitt recently told People MagazineThe men in my life are the crew members [on the show] … and my one male dog, who gets very jealous because I’m gone a lot.”

Here’s J.Love at the Client List premiere on 4-4-12. Whoever said she has caterpillars on her eyes is right. Credit:

    Accept it, own it, love it!
    I know I do =)

      …and you know she’s got at least one entire room dedicated to stuffed animals. Perhaps, even one dedicated to her collection of unicorns.

  2. Agnes says:

    omg, this woman is so terribly sad and pathetic. she should read “he’s just not that into you”. and then she should just STOP.

  3. backwards says:

    She really needs to stop.

    Also, what is going on with her eyes?

  4. Marjalane says:

    Seems to me that JLH could keep a therapist busy for years with the mom, the tiara’s, the neediness, and please- a giant pink Easter Bunny at what, 30, 35? I hope she donates that thing to a local childrens hospital or something.

  5. brin says:

    Ugh. She’s not the cutesy ingenue anymore…it’s getting old and desperate.

  6. cynthia says:

    Is that all her?i mean,her it all hers?her body’s great but those legs?she needs to start running asap!

  7. jen says:

    What wrong with her saying that he is hot. Isn’t that what you say on this site every day.

  8. SolitaryAngel says:

    Whoa. Girl’s looking *rough*. And what’s with the 14 lbs of mascara? Ick. And for the sake of my sanity, throw out all the bandage dresses!!!!

  9. Lindsey G. says:

    J. Love STINKS of desperation. Girl, be single for like 5 minutes and don’t be mentioning all your engagement rings.

  10. Jen D says:

    She gets on my nerves, but…

    – I think she’s a beautiful woman. She might make some terrible styling decisions (the mascara being the most obvious), and I certainly wouldn’t (couldn’t;) dress like her, but overall she looks good.

    – She might be desperate for a man, but she seems to have a lot of girlfriends. I know I’m projecting and there are people who would disagree with me, but she comes across as a girl’s girl.

    – She definitely needs a makeover when it comes to dating, but… would we be paying attention to her if she didn’t? Sometimes you just need to use the attention you get.

    • cameron says:

      Does that make her more desirable because she seems to have a bunch of girlfriends? That’s normally a turn-off for men. I’m not a fan of women that have a bunch of girlfriends but more of the women that have a mix of female/male friends.

      • Jen D says:

        Interesting that you assumed I was talking about her desirability to men;) I get it though – it’s kind of the theme of this thread. It was more of a comment on her supposedly “desperate” personality. I think that with celebrities it’s important to separate the image they’re trying to project (even if that image isn’t really likeable or desirable) with who they actually are. My guess is as good as anyone’s (meaning I don’t think I’m more right than anyone else), but I just don’t think she’s as pathetic as she comes across.

      • crtb says:

        I’m sorry but what you wrote makes no sense: She seems to have a bunch of girlfriends? That’s normally a turn-off for men. What???? Power to the woman who has many woman friends and fcuk any man who doesn’t like it!

        I’m not a fan of women that have a bunch of girlfriends but more of the women that have a mix of female/male friends. You choose to like people by which gender their friends are? Are you fcuking serious?????

  11. Tanguerita says:

    Gosh, she looks beyond awful -she should fire your stylist! These eyelashes are something from a nightmare. And I’ve never seen someone so desperate for love in my whole life.

  12. lucy2 says:

    Forget reading about dating, she needs to not even think about that for a while, just enjoy her life, her work, and her family and friends.

  13. Franny says:

    Girl is smoking from the waist up. I think she needs to invest in some really cute pants though.

  14. Liberty says:

    A few years ago she was on Leno or Letterman and talked about her attempt to interest another actor: she sent him a note and one of those instant blow-up beds. So sent it, then told a tv host and audience about it, to apparently spur the actor to respond. I remember thinking, oh girl, nooooooo….

  15. shaniqua nunyadambidness says:

    Wrap dresses don’t hide cankles.

  16. grabbyhands says:

    Why can’t she just stop? Maybe she needs to take in a reading of He’s Just Not That Into You. The book must have been written with her in mind. P.S. I’m pretty sure Adam Levine doesn’t need her to promote his hotness (although he doesn’t do it for me personally).

  17. NeNe says:

    I think there is something wrong with this chick… She needs some kind of counseling, or something. I think this is why she is alone.

    • ahoyhoy says:

      I agree. I think part of it is her mom.
      JLH’s mom has smothered & coddled JLH since childhood. That makes it too hard for any man to ever seem like he really ‘loves her enough’. Results in JLH being the NEEDIEST bitch on the planet in relationships.

  18. Cindy says:

    It keeps getting worse. She should have laughed it off as a joke, as not that serious, and changed subjects quickly. Doesn’t she have a publicist who would have anticipated this question and coached her?

  19. Leticia says:

    I know girls like JLH, and they cannot be helped. They are as bad as a hardcore heroin addict. They cannot break the bad man habits. And they only become more desperate with age.

  20. StrawberryGirl says:

    She seems like a nice girl, but she is just socially awkward. You would think she would have some friends that would help her out, unless they’re all like her…

  21. Jai says:

    I would hit that, no doubt! But she would have to lose those old lady panty hose LOL!!!

  22. Aubra says:

    LMAO…Anytime I read something about Jennifer Love Hewitt, I read fast so I can get to the reader responses, before I read them, I say to myself “Aaaaaaand….GO!”

    …this chick tries so damn hard, and I am sure she will actually make it to the altar,I’m sure of it! I mean, say what you want about old girl, but she does at the very least snag a guy. As much as we (shooot Y’ALL) laugh about her love/dating life, she’s pretty busy in that department moreso than women who are the same age as her and can’t seem to EVER get it right, and by that I mean they can’t even GET a man! So as cheesy and as needy as I find her to be, I can’t knock her either, because in my eyes, she seems to be moving closer to putting her search to an end by finally getting the guy so to speak…

    …but I heard the stories, and the girl is needy tho! LOL (Look for Rich Cronin’s interview on the Howard Stern show before he died)

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      Can’t even GET a man? When did this thread become the Maury Povich Show? Yeah, there a lot of women who aren’t single by choice, but Hell’s Horses that shouldn’t make them lepers. She wouldn’t have to kiss so many toads if got out of the muck and stop focus-grouping the joy out of life.

      She hardly seems like a human person with agency and dignity and interests because every single adjustment in her life is a means to a conjugal end. Self-help isn’t about getting validation from some random john and fine-tuning yourself into something that will make you pleasing to him. It’s such a clammy thing to witness a woman’s priorities all fall under the ‘what do I have to do to make you love me? Will this make you love me? Do you love me, yet? Can you tell me what to do to make you love me?’

      The stories always end at ‘happily ever after’, so everything before that was training and crying?

  23. islandgirl says:

    Random aside but pretty sure that’s Rebecca Field in the photo with JLove – loved her as bartender Janet in the sadly short-lived October Road! 🙂

    • Bodhi says:

      I think she played a serial killer on Criminal Minds, too! Thats what I recognized her from, lol!

  24. Amanda G says:

    Am I the only one who thinks they would make a hot couple?

    And if we are talking dating books the only one to read is He’s Just Not That Into You. Changed my life!

  25. the original almond says:

    Oh god, this woman… the sheer desperation that wafts off of her… I can’t understand women who are so desperate for a relationship or for love seemingly just for the sake of it.

    A former best friend of mine was like that. Every first date was a possibility -nay, a guarantee- of a serious, longstanding relationship. It never worked. It rarely went beyond the first date. She had too high expectations, she revealed too much too early and she never thought about what she might be doing wrong to turn off all her dates. She was in love with being in love; she never saw the person in front of her, just the fairy tale happy ending. It’s as if she didn’t know that a relationship is hard work, not kisses and rainbows. But my friend was in her very early twenties and since then, I think, has learned a lot.

    Hewit, on the other hand, is in her mid-thirties and shows no signs of maturing on that score. I shudder to think what aging and losing her looks will do to her psyche. She seems like a woman who puts much value on appearance and little value on anything of substance.

  26. Gem says:

    Newsflash to JLH: Adam Levine, while hot, is also GAY. Yes he is (not that there’s anything wrong with that!).

  27. Francesca says:

    I see Carrie Bradshaw junior when I look at her. And not that there is anything wrong with that, either.

  28. sadiesays says:

    Okay, love the 60’s eyes but is her face getting kind of haggy or what? Stress. I always have thought that she was very beautiful, her body is amazing, but it’s too bad that she is so out of touch with the real world. I just think she hasn’t had any time alone out in the world (without trying to hustle it in Hollywood) to really figure out who she is and what she really wants. Love and deep connection. Where does one find that in Hollyweird? She needs to take a break from it all and go live in a secluded place with nothing but her thoughts. Take her to India for a year and no sex with anyone!! This will break her of her little girl/woman looking for love hugging the stuffed animals thing. Yeesh, poor lost soul. Sorry Jen, but you need to get out of there!!

  29. Louis France says:

    I don’t get it. She’s a beautiful woman. I’m a good looking man. I’d go out with her, and have lots of fun. Maybe she needs to stay away from famous people. They don’t last long anyway
