We reckon Jennifer Love Hewitt needs a master class in playing hard to get. Because this relationship confession – from her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show – is, we’ve got to say, a bit desperado! Or maybe we’re wrong and she just knows what she wants.
We’ll fill you in and then let you decide…
Basically Jennifer – who’s been dating her current beau, 27-year-old Alex Beh for six months – has admitted, though they’re not engaged she’s already picked out not one, but three rings, because she’s worried he’ll chose an ‘ugly’ one.
How to lose a guy in 10 days Jen?
‘I feel like I'm doing the guy a favour,’ she said, ‘I feel like women are very confusing, we never know what we want and we're not very good at nailing that down for them. I don't want to be upset if he picks a bad ring. I feel like having three picked out and saying, 'Look! Look at this plethora of things you can choose from!'
When Ellen subtly pointed out she might be getting a little ahead of herself and, wouldn’t it be nicer, to get a surprise, Jennifer backpedalled swiftly.
‘Yeah, I never thought of it that way. Maybe that should be my growth for the New Year. To let the rings go.’
Are we wrong in thinking this is a real turn off? Like those hungry-for-a-hubbie women who sign up for wedding venue waiting lists… even though they’re still single.
It reminds us of this scene from Friends. All together now ladies, ‘I dooooooooooo.’
