Jennifer Love Hewitt feels sorry for her troubled fans, and spends an inordinate amount of time listening to their problems and trying to help them. She’s especially bothered when she can’t channel her on-screen character, the ghost whisperer, to help widows speak to their dead husbands:
She explains, “… a part of me really feels bad that I can’t help these people. “I had this woman come up to me and she was so sweet, she was probably 75 and we’re sitting there talking and she’s telling me how on Friday nights she gets together with her husband and they hold hands on the couch and they eat their favourite meal and they watch the show and how she never misses it and she loves it. “Like 20 minutes into the conversation, I realised that her husband was dead. “She likes the show because she thinks her husband comes to spend time with her then, but I was broken-hearted because I didn’t know how to be the Ghost Whisperer in real life. “I was like, ‘What do I do?’ You can’t fake your way through something like that. It was really hard.”
JLove spoke to a crazy old woman for 20 minutes, and instead of walking away annoyed, she felt guilty that she couldn’t help her! Honey, no one can help someone who thinks they watch TV with their dead spouse.
On February 26th JLove hosted the LA County “Race for the Cure” to benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. She wanted to “honor her aunt who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is undergoing treatment.” [via]
She has to be the kindest celebrity ever.
