Jennifer Love Hewitt goes from brunette to blonde: did you miss her?

Jennifer Love Hewitt Celebrates the release of her New Baby Collection with Pea In The Pod
Jennifer Love Hewitt is back! Did you miss her? I can’t say I realized that she was gone. I know that sounds harsh, but she’s one of those celebrities on the periphery. She’s done a decent job of avoiding oversaturation the past couple of years. Hewitt will pop up when she has something to promote, and she’ll get papped occasionally, but she’s not all over the place. So when she stepped away for a bit it didn’t really register for me.

Hewitt had a baby with her husband, Brian Hallisay, in November. I was about to write that she had a baby with her “fiance,” but Hallisay and Hewitt were secretly married ahead of their daughter’s birth. I forgot all about that. It doesn’t seem like her not to release a wedding photo, but she’s definitely been more low key lately. Hewitt told Ellen earlier this week that she got married last year just five days before the baby was born, and that she and Brian were the only ones there. She also gushed about baby Autumn and about her new husband. It was cute.

Jennifer Love Hewitt has a baby, and a husband, with all the right moves.

At just 4 months old, baby daughter Autumn James already has quite the appreciation for music, and is learning to groove along with it.

“She loves Pharrell and Drake. She’s big into hip-hop and Latin music for some reason,” the actress says in an interview airing Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show — a program that Autumn also seems drawn to.

“The second the show comes on and you start dancing, she does this weird kick thing with her leg, and she gets her little chair,” Hewitt, 35, tells DeGeneres. “I think she’s gonna be a dancer. I really do. She loves it…”

Hewitt married Brian Hallisay, her former Client List costar, right before Autumn arrived — “five days before she was born, basically,” Hewitt reveals. It was a small wedding — “just the two of us, and then we went to Bed Bath & Beyond, because that’s what married people do,” the actress jokes.

Now, she couldn’t be happier. “He’s an awesome, incredible father and a great husband, and I just feel really lucky,” she says.

Hewitt has a new maternity fashion line with A Pea in The Pod. She promoted the line at a red carpet event in LA last night. She got a decent turnout of other pregnant celebrities, including Jenna Fischer, Megan Hilty, and Kendra Wilkinson.

Hewitt also has a new hair color, an ombre blonde. I think the darker pieces in there are extensions, which she’s admitted to using. As far as her new hair, I liked her better as a brunette. I think it suits her more, but I get why she wanted to switch it up for Spring. She looks great as always and you can tell that she’s super happy. She’s talked about wanting a family for so long, so it’s nice to see it finally happen for her.

Here’s part of J.Love’s interview with Ellen.

    Don’t care for the blonde hair…her features kind of disappear with it. Think she’s a pretty girl who needs to go back to being a brunette.

  2. Vanessa says:

    I’m happy for her. I used to not like her on Party of Five, but I’ve been a fan since Ghost Whisperer. She looks better as a brunette.

  3. Loopy says:

    She has always been so harmless and a cutey pie. She looks very fresh and not tired at all.

    • Shiksa Goddess says:

      You took the words right out of my mouth, cute and harmless are the perfect ways to describe her.

  4. paola says:

    I just realised she was gone. I didn’t notice it.. so I guess that I didn’t miss her?
    I like her though… is just that she lives a quiet existence and she’s never in your face so you don’t notice if she goes away for a while

  5. InVain says:

    She’s hardly on my radar…but that new hair is giving her a fresher, younger look IMO. The brunette picture you posted makes her look tired…but I don’t think the bangs trauma and the glitzy eyeliner is helping in that one either.

  6. lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for the blonde on her, I think she looks better as a brunette.
    After all those years of fiances and engagement ring talk, she seems very happy to have what she’s always wanted, which is great.

  7. Anne says:

    Yikes, that’s a look I associate with ten years ago. I don’t like it.

  8. QQ says:

    Nope, didnt miss her one Bit, in fact every time i see her pics I see it as a Harbinger of The TMI to come out of her like Projectile Vomit

  9. blue marie says:

    Not at all and she should have stayed brunette.

  10. Maria says:

    She looks so much better with a lighter brunette color, the blonde washes her out, IMO.

    I’m glad she’s happy.

  11. Nicolette says:

    Not crazy about the blonde, but whatever. She looks so happy, and that beaming smile makes her gorgeous.

    • wheezy says:

      Ditto @ nicolette- and she looks like an honest to goodness New Mom! I’m loving it- and her interview portion about baby weight made me love her!

  12. DJ says:

    I saw her on Ellen and the first thing I said was “wow, that blond color makes her look so much older than she is.” I think it ages her and washes her out. She’s much better as a brunette.

  13. GMarchetti says:

    My God, I hope Megan is NOT pregnant! That body…

    • Tiffany says:

      Yes. Megan is expecting. Announced it last week.

      I like Jennifer and I did miss her. She was always good filler gossip while you were waiting for a A lister to make the press.

  14. Tracy says:

    She looks much better with dark hair.

  15. Alexis says:

    She should have left the roots darker and had an ombre effect into blonde. I think that would have looked better.

  16. Jayna says:

    Awful. It fades out her complexion and features. She usually has such sparkling eyes and pretty complexion. Not in that photo. I like her with her medium-dark brown hair she usually wears, not super dark.

  17. Anna-fo-Fanna says:

    Blonde or not, I’m thrilled for her, because she is obviously so thrilled with her life. She’s always struck me as sweet and harmless, and I’m happy she’s gotten what she’s always wanted. 🙂

  18. serena says:

    Don’t like her with blonde hair at all.

  19. Meggin says:

    She looks a lot better with dark hair. I am the same way, I look washed out when I go blonde. She looks happy though!! 🙂

  20. panda bear says:

    Oh…. that hair is unfortunate. Cute girl, horrible hair

  21. Gorg says:

    She’s so cute; not the best actor but always likeable and bubbly. Her blonde hair is a good move; she’s an early greyer and the shocking white roots when she was brunette was just horrible.

  22. MyCatLoves TV says:

    She looks happy and that’s wonderful. I do hope that enough people around her guide her back to the lighter brunette hair color. That yellow does nothing for her lovely face and smile.

  23. ann h says:

    Why do so many pretty dark haired girls go blond is beyond me. Now she just looks like every other bimbo that dyes her hair. She’s gone from beauty to washed and faded out. Girls, please stop trying to look exactly the same. You’re all boring.

  24. Karkar says:

    She looks washed out and tired. It’s not a good hair color for her.
