Jennifer Love Hewitt: 'It's Not A Breakup Haircut!'
Responding to the buzz that ensued when she stepped out in a noticeably shorter ‘do last week, the newly-single Jennifer Love Hewitt told PEOPLE, “I know everybody thinks it’s a breakup haircut—but it’s not.” Dressed in a sexy, sparkling dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim at last night’s grand opening of Esprit’s new Manhattan flagship, the actress showed off the cropped, curly hairstyle that made its debut on the heels of her split from former boyfriend and Ghost Whisperer co-star Jamie Kennedy. Love Hewitt acknowledged that the shearing took place directly after the breakup, “But it’s not about that,” she insisted, laughing. “It’s just a ‘I-need-a-change’ haircut!” But that’s not to say the actress wasn’t at least partly amused by the virtual peanut gallery: “My favorite headline so far was ‘She Cut That Man Right Out of Her Hair.’ But no–it was really just for me.”– reporting by Jeffrey Slonim
