Jennifer Love Hewitt has rubbished reports she once dated ALEC BALDWIN -
complaining she gets linked with every man she talks to.
The I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER star, 25, has laughed off stories she
romanced 46-year-old Baldwin while they worked together on 2001's THE DEVIL AND
Hewitt, who is dating an unnamed guy "in the business", says, "I mean, I
had to laugh. Alec is a lovely guy but you've just got to ask yourself if that
would make any sense.
"But I only have to be pictured with a guy and everyone assumes I'm dating
him - when really I'm only helping him pick out flowers for his girlfriend.
"In any case, I do have someone in my life now and although he's not an
actor, he's in the business. I hate talking about it because it's still in the
early stages and I don't know if he's Mr Right."
As for Mr Right, Hewitt has a particular criteria she's looking for.
She explains, "I'd want someone very gentle who wants to take care of me,
which is tricky in this business as I have be strong and straightforward during
the day so it's hard for me to step back and be the girl.
"But I think my Mr Right would know how to do that, and hopefully I'll end
up with someone romantic. It's very hard to out-do me on romance, but he's got
to be prepared to try."
