Jennifer Love Hewitt is ready for her close up with “Twilight Saga” star Robert Pattinson.
“I love him,” the proud Twi-hard told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Tuesday’s Access Hollywood Live.
“I love Edward,” Jennifer continued. “I actually waited in line to take a picture with him after the very first premiere for like an hour and 15 minutes and as I got up to take my picture, they were like, ‘Rob are you tired?’ and he’s like, ‘Yes,’ and he left. And I was standing there like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ Forty women from Milwaukee got their photo, but not me.”
Jennifer though, might still get her chance. When Billy suggested Jennifer could moonlight for Access Hollywood and cover the “Breaking Dawn, Part I” premiere as Access’ correspondent, the former “Ghost Whisperer” star screamed with delight.
“Are you kidding? Are you kidding? Really? Shut up! Are you kidding?” a joyous Jennifer exclaimed. “Oh my God! It’s like getting a rose on ‘The Bachelor’ right now, this is amazing.”
“Do we have a deal?” Billy asked.
“Yes! Oh my gosh, I’m gonna get teeth,” Jennifer laughed. “I’m gonna wear teeth, I’m gonna be like ‘Bite me!’”
Jennifer quickly thought of a few ways to finally get that encounter with fellow actor Robert on the Access platform at the “Breaking Dawn, Part I” premiere, which will be in November.
“I’m gonna get him to sit on my lap,” she laughed. “That’s what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna be like, ‘Tell me everything, please sit.’ I am so excited!”
Beyond her obsession for all things “Twilight,” Jennifer is riding high on the acclaim for her Golden Globe nomination performance in Lifetime’s “The Client List,” which was released on DVD on Tuesday.
“It was really fun. We had a good time,” Jennifer said of donning negligee for the drama, for which she played a housewife who turns to prostitution to help out her financially strapped family.
“It’s a very powerful story and right now, more than ever, women – housewives — are finding themselves in sex worker positions to help take care of their families,” she said.
In related J. Love news, the actress just celebrated a ratings milestone. Her Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie with Betty White, “The Lost Valentine,” was the week’s No. 1 scripted program in the ratings, bringing in more than 14.6 million viewers.
