Hewitt Coos About Love For Comic Kennedy
JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT was so focused on planning her wedding to Scottish actor ROSS MCCALL she didn't realise she was falling for someone else.
When the actress and MCCall split at the end of last year (08), Hewitt fell into the arms of Ghost Whisperer co-star Jamie Kennedy - and now she can't believe she didn't consider a relationship with her old friend before.
Speaking candidly about her new romance on Wednesday's (22Apr09) Ellen DeGeneres show in America, she said, "Break-ups are awful, they're really painful, they really hurt, they really suck on lots of levels but what I think is great about life is the universe always brings you something really beautiful and great afterwards - and that's kinda where I am now, so it's OK."
And cooing about her new love, she added, "We've been friends for a long time. I've never really had that... I've heard about being friends with somebody and then it turns into something else and I've never really done that before and it's been great. He's hilarious and when you're with someone funny, they're always funny.
"There's people in your life who are just supportive and they look at you and they see who you are and he really saw who I was as a person more than anybody had ever done in my whole life.
"I knew he was funny, I knew he was special, I knew he was a really nice guy and a decent person; I just never really looked at him that way until a little while ago... I was planning a wedding... I was in a different time."
