When Jennifer Love Hewitt discussed her love life on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last week, the "Client List" star told DeGeneres, "I always have my eyes out." She was quick to add, "I just read two days ago that Adam Levine is single again ... I'm just saying."
The 33-year-old actress was, of course, referring to Levine's recent split from his girlfriend of two years, model Anne Vyalitsyna. "Look, we would be cute," she observed, when DeGeneres showed a photo of the Maroon 5 frontman and "The Voice" coach.
So, how did Levine react to the remarks?
“It’s very, very flattering,” he told AccessHollywood.com in an interview Wednesday. “It’s very flattering and very sweet and it was lovely to hear.” He modestly continued, "But I'm not going to let it get to my head."
Whether the pair's interest is mutual remains to be seen, but perhaps Levine hasn't had a whiff of the vanilla extract Hewitt reportedly uses as man bait.
