Adam Levine on Jennifer Love Hewitt declaring she wants to date him: “flattering and sweet”

Adam Levine dates Victoria’s Secret models, and apparently a lot of other chicks on the side. He’s not about to give up the thrill of chasing fresh young tail to get with a 33 year-old actress who used to date Jamie Kennedy and has admitted multiple times to having three engagement rings picked out at Tiffanys. He might have, if Love Hewitt had played it much much cooler, but she just told Ellen Degeneres that she wanted to date the guy and she gushed about him. It’s not exactly rocket science to imagine that her strategy might backfire and make her seem too easy to get. Well Adam has responded to Love Hewitt’s offer, and he gave her a brushoff couched in appreciation, as if she had just paid him a compliment. You know there’s no way he’s going to get with her now. Here’s what he told Access Hollywood:

Newly single Adam Levine doesn’t mind when the ladies flirt with him!

Access Hollywood caught up with “The Voice” coach after Tuesday’s show, where he chimed in Jennifer Love Hewitt’s recent suggestion that they would make a good couple.

“It’s very, very flattering,” Adam, who recently split with Anne V, told’s Laura Saltman. “It’s very flattering and very sweet and it was lovely to hear.”

Adding with a smile, “But I’m not going to let it get to my head.”

[From Access Hollywood]

I’m not going to let it get to my head” is code for “this happens a lot, and I try to ignore the fangirls.” What is with J.Love? I just want to talk some sense into her and send her He’s Just Not That Into You.* She’s very successful with a great social life and she’s gorgeous. (I really do think she’s so pretty when she’s styled well, not here where she has lee press-on lashes.) Plus she’s famous and sexy! Men should be falling over themselves to date her, but instead she’s so boy crazy she’s ruining her chances. You really would think someone would have clued her in by now. Hell she even wrote a book about dating and yet she’s failing the basics. I guess I shouldn’t care too much. She also needs to realize that she’s getting fixated on guys who are total a**holes who treat her like crap. A lot of us have friends like this, and we can’t get through to them, either.

*Thanks to those of you who mentioned that book in the comments!

Update: Thanks to Sandra for the link to this interview with Adam. He talks about the J.Love stuff at 3:00. He actually is addressing women saying he’s sexy in general, not J.Love specifically when he says “that is very flattering, I’m not going to let it get to my head.” Then he was asked specifically about Love and said it was flattering and sweet and “lovely to hear.” Dismissed.

    oh good grief.. her eyes!! lol

  2. Jayna says:

    Let’s face it. He dates tall, slender, leggy models in their 20s. Jennifer is a doll, but in his world her thick legs, big butt, big thighs are a no-go.

    • TheFactsR says:

      She was also in the audience of DWTS telling Tom that she was there to watch Maks dance. What a flirt!

  3. Agnes says:

    that was very classy of him to handle it this way. BUT it will probably give her “hope” and she will continue going on and on about this. i guess she doesn’t have friends who would slap her around verbally for this sort of behavior? my friends would. 🙂

    • Aiobhan says:

      You are so right about the hopeful comment. I am one of those friends who would never allow my friends to act this desperate. I love her to pieces but this is just awful. Somebody needs to tell her to sit down and take a yoga class or watch a soap opera or do something other than acting as she is. She can do better than him anyway.

  4. brin says:

    I saw someone from E News asking him about JLH comment and he really looked uncomfortable. He just mumbled “It’s flattering” (no smile). lol

  5. Me says:

    Who cares what “he dates.” I havent always dated the same type of man. And its not like J.Love is a gigantic beast of a woman.

    • gg says:

      With a normal real-world guy, it wouldn’t matter a bit. But when you’re a high-profile player like he is, once you date an SI swimsuit model, you never go back.

  6. Sandra says:

    I watched the interview and Adam was a gentleman, so sweet and a little bit embarrassed. As to “But I’m not going to let it get to my head” it’s related to the reporter’s statement that he’s gonna be the next sexiest man alive.

  7. tango says:

    Well good for him for being polite about it. And with Jennifers track record of being dumped, if Adam did date her, it’d be another relationship that ended badly.

  8. Celebitchy says:

    For those of you who have seen the video of this interview, is it online at all and could you please comment with the link? Thank you!

  9. Reba says:

    He’s so hot!!!

    • gg says:

      Why though? I don’t see it.

      • anon33 says:

        THANK YOU!!! Me either. I do not get the hype with this one at all.

      • gg says:

        He looks even dippier with the Situation’s hairdo. He is aging rapidly as well. He looks 45 or so to me and he can’t be that old.

      • Jen says:

        He is HOT and aging VERY well. He’s for sure sexier now than when he was younger. Adam Levine is like wine, better with time….

  10. Francesca says:

    For a chick that is no more in her twenties, I would think she should be focusing more on finding a quality man to marry, not dating around.This chick has grown a reputation of chasing men and not lasting love.

  11. Ell says:

    He should be so lucky. I agree, Jennifer needs to step back and let the men do the running. She obviously has self esteem issues as she’s a gorgeous looking woman.

    I don’t know why but Adam makes my skin crawl.

    • gg says:

      He gives me the supercreeps too. shudder.

      She thinks she understands what self-respect is, but she doesn’t. She thinks it means taking a stand for yourself all the time, which just equates to being combative or controlling. It means making them chase you and having patience, because if you chase them and catch one, it will only be briefly because of the tone that started it; i.e., desperate to get laid and have a b/f and husband. You HAVE to dangle that stuff in front of them like a carrot, and then walk away and see if they follow. If they don’t – they didn’t really want it bad enough in the first place. Jennifer, learn real self respect! Come on, before you turn 50! We’re rooting for you but you’re making it impossible.

  12. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    He did date J Simpson, who is far from a VS model, so J Love probably thought there was hope for her too.

    • gg says:

      that was before he upgraded to the strings of models.

    • Hautie says:

      I am about positive that his limited time spent with Jessica Simpson. Was during her “Dukes of Hazard” promotion days.

      When she was insanely thin. And barely separated from Lachey.

  13. Beatrix says:

    Not a fan and I don’t think she’s all that attractive (probably because of her behavior,though, I may just dislike her entirely) but I think Celebitchy is right in saying that guys should be chasing her because of her status and fame and self-evident boobs, etc. I’m sure I’d find her cuter if her presentation of her self-worth weren’t so atrocious.

  14. WillyNilly says:

    She is SUCH a Teri Hatcher.

  15. Esmom says:

    Really, what else was he supposed to say or do without coming off like the d-bag he actually is? His response neither enhances nor detracts from his image, it’s all very neutral. And not encouraging for her!

    • Sandra says:

      I’m sorry, but what could he possibly do or say in that situation? Why d-bag? This is an uncool opinion.

  16. grabbyhands says:

    Translation: That’s nice, but please stop talking about me now-I’m trying to give you a dignified exit from this whole thing.Please take it, because I’m not going to take you up on your offer.

  17. Sisi says:

    it’s like she copy-pasted the read JLO’s make-up onto herself like a mask and it doesn’t fit right.

  18. Lizbet says:

    Ouch… That noncommittal “very sweet” is the kiss of death. Jennifer heard and thought “I really DO have a chance with him!”

  19. Alexis says:

    So desperate.

  20. Katyusha says:

    Maybe the fact that her middle name is “Love” has jinxed her; oh, the irony.

    On a side note, her boobies are pretty.

  21. Jayna says:

    What is so funny is she dated Carson Daly, the host on the Voice many years ago and famously broke his heart. Talk about uncomfortable with Adam and Carson on the same show.

  22. dahlia1947 says:

    I think she needs to calm down. She aims pretty low this girl. HEy what happened to all of the douche comments about this guy from previous posts? Remember?

    I guess this is a lesson for us girls that a douche can pose as a sweet and hot guy and we’ll fall for it.

  23. marlee says:

    Those lashes are making my eyes tired. It’s like her lids are collapsing under their weight.

  24. SleepyJane says:

    She has no children, which in my opinion, speeds the aging process (stress!). There is no excuse for her to look that old at only 33.

    Regarding Adam, poor guy to even be put in this situation.

  25. Rhiley says:

    I could look at 14 year old Brad Pitt all day long. So cute. I bet Shiloh is going to want a Prince Valient haircut now.

  26. skuddles says:

    Careful Adam, I think JLH just pitched a tent on your front lawn…

  27. Mew says:

    He’s far more polite than I thought he’d be or then there’s something else on his mind. However, with a desperate woman like JLH, he should be most careful…

  28. sup says:

    that was sweet of him to reply like that.

  29. Feebee says:

    Comments like hers put the object of them in a really awkward spot. He replied the only gracious way he could.

    With the content and wardrobe of her new show no guy on set is going to be safe from her attempts at flirting/picking up that ring from Tiffany’s.

  30. Courtney says:

    I was watching a show with Guy Pearce watching Adam Levine’s response to J.Love and Guy said, “Yeah, thats definitely a no. He’s gay though.” It was hilarious. Does anyone have the link of it?

    • Mary says:

      It was a joke! Adam is not gay! He has even dated half Hollywood girls. His brother is gay.

  31. Camille (The original) says:

    She certainly has a type doesn’t she. There is something vaguely John Mayer’esque about Adam.

    JLove is like a prettier and more likeable Jessica Simpson.

  32. lola lola says:

    Listening to hear talk about him was mortifying. Could she really be that dumb or was she just trying (hopefully) to kick up press about herself?
    p.s. she’s like 15 years too old for him anyway. He likes 2nd graders.. or maybe its 5th graders…I can’t remember. Teenagers?

  33. AJ says:

    Wow, for 33, she’s really looking older than she is. Her skin is already starting to get that loose leathery look.

  34. Cirque28 says:

    Yeah, that clearly translates as, “How sweet, but seriously, NO.”

  35. Aubra says:

    LMAO, so y’all don’t remember when she sent Keifer Sutherland a bed??

  36. hina says:

    Love Adam but good to hear he will stay clear from her, have you seen her photos with fake eyelashes.

  37. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Um this woman needs bangs, like, NOW.
    her forehead is massive and its not flattering at all.
    Yes, she really is that dumb I really belive this is a classic case of those women that think way, waaay to much of themselves and have lost all grasp of reality? Example A. her photoshoot on her BDay clumsily trying to reenact Breakfast at Tiffanys…..(cringe.)
    As well, if you take a look at the girl who dumped him there is no comparison. She is breathtakingly gorgeous. If I were Adam id be crying in my soup. He must have let out a big sigh to hear this one coming on to him on air. not to embarrassing.

    • Mark says:

      Sorry, but Anne V (She? dumped Adam?? for sure???) is only an average woman, btw totally unclassy. The split? Good for Adam.

  38. Thanks for finally talking about > Cele|bitchy Blog Archive Adam Levine on Jennifer Love Hewitt declaring she wants to date him: flattering and sweet < Loved it!
