Jennifer Love Hewitt busts out at Jingle Ball 2011.
Remember when the interwebs were buzzing with rumors of a Jennifer Love Hewitt hookup with Ben Flajnik? Toes true, says The Bachelor himself, although it didn’t work out for them. 

During a conference call with USA Today, Ben says they did go on a date and that she’s a nice girl…but there’s a but.

“She reached out and wanted to come up to the winery, which she did,” he says. “We went out to dinner and just kind of chatted about life and the experience. She’s a nice girl, but I wasn’t — it was right in the middle of the time when I was deciding to be the Bachelor. When this is all said and done, ending up with a Hollywood celebrity is not something that I want.”

As a reality star, we hope Ben doesn’t find the same sort of reaction to his celebrity status! 

As for J.Love, she’s found a man, even walking the red carpet with her new boyfriend Jarod Einsohn, who has starred in films like Eagle Eye and Hurricane Season. The two have been casually dating since August.
