Jennifer Love Hewitt, Adam Levine: Actress Feels Like A 'Fool'

Something smells an awful lot like high school: After 'fessing up to a major crush on Adam Levine on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Jennifer Love Hewitt got shot down by the Maroon 5 frontman.

Said Levine, 33, to Ellen on Thursday's show: "That was aggressive."

"It was really sweet," he continued. "Beautiful life, you know, when a beautiful woman says nice things about you."

"The Client List" actress, 33, then did what any spurned teen would do. Hewitt took to Twitter to make some pink-cheeked declarations about love, most especially a reminder to keep her lips sealed when it comes to her other romantic interests.

Coincidentally, Hewitt dated "The Voice" host Carson Daly from 1997 to 1999; Levine is a judge on the singing show. But Carson's not harboring any resentment toward his ex. "I saw that ... I think she's got good taste. He's a good-looking guy!" Daly told Hollyscoop shortly after her announcement.
