[movieperson id="182426"]Jennifer Love Hewitt[/movieperson] may be dating Jamie Kennedy, but that doesn’t mean that the “Ghost Whisperer” star isn’t pining for the man who plays Edward Cullen. You see, Twilighter Hewitt is all about Team Edward.
“Who’s not Team Edward?” she asked MTV News at Comic-Con, where she and her “Ghost Whisperer” co-stars talked about the fifth season of their supernatural CBS series. “There is not a girl in the world who’s not Team Edward! Have you met girls who are not Team Edward? Well, they are not girls! They’re aliens from another planet who should not be allowed to exist.”
Unfortunately for Hewitt, she didn’t get a chance to meet [movieperson id="365131"]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson] at Comic-Con, but at the same time, she isn’t sure she’d have the capabilities to handle an encounter with him in the flesh. “I’d pass out. I can’t talk about it, ’cause I’d pass out,” she said. “It’s because he’s Edward. Listen, Edward can fly you through the forest. He’s like Aladdin with vampire teeth — there’s magic-carpet rides. He can sing. He can watch you sleep. He plays music. He sniffs your neck. I mean, please!”
Although Hewitt missed out on the “Twilight” panel at Comic-Con, she was holding out hope she’d get the chance to meet another much-loved vampire cast. “I’m bummed because I missed ‘Twilight.’ I wanted to see them so badly, but they were here before I got here, so I was bummed that I missed them. But I’m hoping that some of the ‘True Blood’ people are still here so that I can see them, ’cause obviously I have a vampire thing.”
With her former “Can’t Hardly Wait” co-star Peter Facinelli in the cast, is there any chance that Hewitt may find herself in one of the next “Twilight” films? She hopes so. “I want a part so bad. Any part’s fine. I will be the vampire who carries Robert Pattinson’s luggage in the airport, that is the part that I will play if they need it,” she said. “Jamie wants to play a werewolf, so we’re both putting it out there.”
