Jennifer Love Hewitt seen with hot male co-star, calls him her ‘assistant’: true? (update)


Update: a lot of you have commented that you’ve seen Brian Hallisay on television and that this is not him. He does look like him to me, and the photo agency identifies him as Hallisay, but they’ve definitely been wrong before. So I’m more likely to buy the “assistant” story, and maybe she has a secret romance with another guy on the side. Here’s hoping.


This story confuses me. Kaiser found it for me and she originally titled this post “Jennifer Love Hewitt shows off her boyfriend of three months, Brian Hallisay.” The photo agency identifies the guy out hiking with J.Love yesterday as Brian Hallisay, he looks just like him, and back in May we ran a story from The National Enquirer that J.Love had taken Hallisay on a week long vacation to Tahiti to test their new relationship. (This was the second Enquirer story claiming that J.Love and Hallisay, her co-star on “The Client List,” were dating.) J.Love tweeted at the time that she was on vacation, but she played this close to her chest and never revealed that she was with a guy. This is a good strategy for her, since she’s typically been way too open about her love life.

This is at least the second time we’ve seen photos of Hewitt with Hallisay. I found these other pictures of them out at lunch on July 11th. (Where she’s in the green sleeveless top.) But in response to these photos, she tweeted that the guy she was walking with is just her “assistant and friend.”

If this is true I’m a little bummed! I was hoping that Hewitt had something going on with this guy and that she was wisely playing it cool. He’s exactly her type – she goes for dark-haired handsome types. Or is she trying to throw the press off by claiming he’s just a “friend” and “assistant”? If she really is with him that’s a little insulting to the guy. He seems to have a semi-decent television career judging by his IMDB. He could be her assistant and/or he might play for the other team, some of these photos give me that vibe. (Here’s a link to a profile of Brian from OK! last year in which he gives the impression that he’s straight.) Either way, I’m happy to see her out and about and looking well. She lost her mom a couple of months ago and it had to be a very hard summer for her.

    He doesn’t look like he likes biscuits if you know what I mean.

  3. corny says:

    green ruffled top so hideous, looks like she borrowed it from a circus dog

  4. Skaffie says:

    He told her to tweed so.. ;)

  5. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Brian Hallisay is SO hot. If she’s dating him, she better STFU and not ruin it!

  6. NeNe says:

    I like in the last pic how she is holding up her shirt to reveal her stomach, as if to say, “See, I told you I am not fat”…

    BTW…. I think she looks butt ugly in all of those pics!!!

    • Palefire says:

      Really ? I’m not a fan of hers by any means I Remb her slightly growing up….. as boobs McGee in bad movies. But her now, is appealing to me. She seems like a genuine vulnerable sweet girl. I think she’s sooo pretty her hair her face everything I love her body. She’s not perfect and she’s not conceited. She’s not hard and overdone and overbearing, she’s feminine and flawed. She kinda makes me smile that she can’t get it right with guys. Im rooting for her she just lost her mom….

    That isn’t her co-star. I watch the show. I have never seen that guy. A couple of months ago, she was photographed with one of her really good-looking co-stars of “The Client List”. He must be her assistant, I have never seen him before.

  8. Lexi says:

    So Gay.

  9. Minimi says:

    That is kind of weird…I used to watch some series with Brian Hallisay and the guy in those photos doesn’t look like him at all…no, that’s not him!

    • Celebitchy says:

      I’ll update that it’s not Hallisay then! The photo agency identified him as Hallisay and he does look like him to me. I’ll fix it, thanks!

  10. Veronica says:

    Yeah thats definitely not her client list co star…. that guy is def gay

  11. The Original Mia says:

    That most definitely isn’t Brian.

  12. Lexi says:

    That literally looks nothing like Brian Hallisay

  13. jelynn says:

    Both sets of pictures are the same man, and he’s not Brian Hallisay, clearly. Hallisay’s jaw is square, this guy’s is pointy. Hallisay has a much heavier musculature than this dude as well.

  14. Viv says:

    ooooh, those yellow panties make me a lil dizzy. why oh why, Jennifer?

  15. MaxxHotness says:

    I think she looks good (-; go girl!

  16. sek7 says:

    this is not her boyfriend, this really is her assistant. he’s my cousin. his name is not brian.

  17. Sarah says:

    I’m still waiting for the day that she dates John Mayer again. Oh the PR…

  18. Serenity says:

    I’m going with gay as well. I just had to mention it because my gaydar went off like crazy when I saw him!

  19. Michael says:

    She needs someone normal and completely out her of social circle. All I’ve ever seen her date are walking Ken-dolls and 95lbs scrawny metro-sexual dudes. Big surprise they never seem to last.
