Jennifer Love Hewitt is feeling the pain of rejection. Yes, the girl who all the boys wanted to date in the late ’90s is feeling the sharp sting that comes with getting turned down for a date. What’s worse? It’s happening in public.
“The moment when you make a comment about something or someone and the world makes you feel like a total fool. #keepcrushesquiet,” The Client List actress tweeted on Friday. “Thank you to @adamlevine for being so gracious on Ellen about my crush heard round the world. I’ve learned a lesson.#Sssh.”
We can’t say we wouldn’t feel the same way JLH does — she was basically humiliated on live television. It all went down when Ellen DeGeneres asked Adam Levine about his famous admirer.
“It was really sweet and flattering. Beautiful life, you know, when a beautiful woman says nice things about you,” he told the talk show host of Hewitt’s admitted crush on him. However, The Voice judge said he was “cool” when she offered to hook him up on a date with Hewitt.
Ouch. Ouch, ouch, ouch. We could say that Levine is just nursing his broken heart after breaking up with his Russian supermodel girlfriend Anne V. — and he might be — but something tells us that he’s more worried about his own image. Can’t date a has-been when you’re a super-hot musician and television star, right? Still more Victoria’s Secret supermodels who need boyfriends.
And why is he single? It sounds like the once hot-and-heavy couple cooled off when Levine wouldn’t talk marriage. The reason? Levine needs to “study” marriage first, he told Paper Magazine.
“I want to study marriage,” he revealed. “I want to learn about it, I want to know it. I want to figure out whether or not I want to do it. I’m not just going to leap into it, because that’s not good for anybody.”
Basically, that’s guy code for “I want to play the field.” Nothing wrong with that, Adam — just call it what it is.
