Jennifer Love Hewitt Confronts Ex Carson Daly On ‘Last Call’

visited ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ on Tuesday (December 13), promoting her CBS hit ‘Ghost Whisperer’. The ex-lovers, who split under bad terms, exchanged several remarks related to their romance and who’s fault it was that it ended. Love Hewitt said to close the interview: “Can we just say that, for the time being, no matter what happened, I was a really good girlfriend to you and you were a great boyfriend, and that…” Carson then interrupted, “The latter is so true. The first part is definitely true, but…” She then said, “We had a lot of fun, and it was a good time in our life. So we should end it like that.” Carson, who was dumped via a press release, countered, “It was. It ended a little weird. I got to be honest. A little weird.” Jennifer conceded, “It did, but that doesn’t matter.” For more on their banter, read on for a transcript.

Carson: All right. Are we ready? Are you guys ready to play a little music for our guests to come out? I don’t know why I have questions. I don’t know where this is going to go, but here we go. Seven years ago in New York, our first guest fell victim to the charms of a strapping, young MTV video jockey. A courtship ensued. His name was Kurt Loder.

[ Laughter ] Since then, she’s gone on to much bigger and better things, including starring in the hit CBS show “Ghost Whisperer.” Here she is,
the lovely Jennifer Love Hewitt. Love?

[ Cheers and applause ]

Carson: How are you? Thanks for being here. My hands are freezing.

Jennifer: How are you?

Carson: You look fantastic. You look great.

Jennifer: Thanks, so do you.

Carson: It’s great to have you here.

Jennifer: Thanks. Congratulations on your baby.

Carson: Thank you, thank you. I’m very excited. I’ve had a lot of time to think about you being here, and I’ve had a chance to go through some things. And I think I just want to start here, and I don’t want it to be weird for you. But I think it’s important that I say this. I think it’s about time we start seeing other people.

[ Laughter ] I don’t know how you feel, but i just feel like the time’s right.

Jennifer: Really? Really?

Carson: Yeah.

Jennifer: Okay.

Carson: Like, if you want to jaunt off on your own, I’m cool with that.

Jennifer: Okay.

Carson: Just want you to know.

Jennifer: I really appreciate that.

Carson: Do you?

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: You’re cool with that?

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: You’re not gonna fight me on it?

Jennifer: No, I’m not.

Carson: Okay, good.

[ Laughter ]

Jennifer: I’m not.

Carson: It’s been a long time.

Jennifer: How are you doing?

Carson: I’m doing good. How are you?

Jennifer: Good.

Carson: You look great.

Jennifer: Thanks.

[ Laughter ] You, too.

Carson: Thanks.

Jennifer: Last time I was on your show, interesting things happened.

Carson: That’s right. When was the last time you were on? Was that the first time I met you?

Jennifer: Yeah. You said seven years ago. It was ten years ago. So not a lot’s changed with you, as I can see.

[ Audience oohs ]

[ Laughter ]

Carson: Do we have the guest ejector seat set up? Whoo! When was the first time? You came on, and that’s when I met you. And that’s when you fell in love with me, right? At the MTV show?

[ Laughter ]

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: Is that what happened?

Jennifer: Pretty much instantly.

Carson: Yeah, that was fun.

Jennifer: Uh-huh.

Carson: Well, it was like when you and I were, you know, going steady and hanging out a lot.

Jennifer: Steady?

[ Light laughter ]

Carson: I knew — I gave you my lettermen’s jacket and you wore it.

Jennifer: Yeah, I was pinned.

Carson: You were pinned.

Jennifer: Uh-huh. Don’t, don’t.

Carson: No, I waited for a good two months.

[ Laughter ]

Jennifer: This is like — this is your life.

Carson: Yeah, it is. It is. You’re a sweetheart to be here.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: Well, let’s just try and get a little catch up here, ’cause I haven’t really talked to you much since, well — ten years, you said, now.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: So how’s “party of five”?

[ Laughter ] How’s that? Is that still going?

Jennifer: No, it’s cancelled.

Carson: No, it was? Okay. And then you had the other show —

Jennifer: Cancelled.

Carson: “Time of your life.”

Jennifer: Cancelled.

Carson: Cancelled.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: Wow.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: That didn’t have anything to do with me, though. Right?

Jennifer: A little.

Carson: Okay.

Jennifer: Yeah, emotional breakdown.

Carson: When I — the last image I have of you is that you were doing so well, and then a couple of these cancellations happened. Was that swallowing a piece of humble pie there?

Jennifer: It was, yeah. I mean, I think it was — you know, it was interesting because I was on “party of five,” and the show instantly did well. I joined in the second year. It was just lovely people, and i instantly was like, you know, a teenager who had the world at her feet.

Carson: Right.

Jennifer: And then turned 21, and “time of your life” got cancelled. And suddenly, you know, I was begging people to say hello to me. I was like, “hello, it’s me. I was on ‘party of five.'” No, it wasn’t that.

Carson: You did. You went from being just, like, uber, uber, uber famous, especially in the teen crowd.

Jennifer: It has its ups and downs, and I’m really grateful for the downs, because now I’m on a great show that’s doing, luckily, very, very well. And I appreciate it more now ’cause I know what it’s like to have both. I know what it’s like to have something that’s really good and something that’s heartbreaking, and you just — I’m much more grateful.

Carson: “Ghost whisperer,” when the show came up, how did that happen? Did you just go audition for a big sitcom? Did you know it was going to be huge?

Jennifer: They said it was a drama.

Carson: Right. I know it’s a drama.

[ Laughter ] When I see you on — I just laugh. You know, it’s a situational comedy to see you talking to ghosts.

Jennifer: He’s cute.

Carson: It’s hilarious. I’m like, “I know her. She can’t really talk to ghosts.”

Jennifer: I can. []

Carson: No, you can’t.

Jennifer: No, I can’t.

Carson: Cats, yes, but not ghosts.

Jennifer: Cats?

Carson: Yeah, well —

Jennifer: “Garfield”?

Carson: Yes.

Jennifer: Oh, got it.

Carson: Inside joke.

[ Laughter ] We’ll edit that out. Don’t worry.

Jennifer: He’s a lobster.

Carson: Oh, really? You’re gonna go there? Where’s my list of stuff? You want some real talk? Can we just cut the show here?

Jennifer: Yes. How’s your tattoo?

Carson: Oh, yeah, the tattoo.

[ Catcalls from audience ]

Jennifer: I’m bringing it all.

Carson: Wow, you really are.

Jennifer: I’m just playing.

Carson: You know what’s a funny story is, I called when I was shooting the beach house stuff. Do you know when I called you, and I’d had — I don’t know if you know this about me. I have an occasional beer. I want to be honest.

Jennifer: Really? I had no idea.

[ Light laughter ]

Carson: I like — I’m Irish. Joe knows what I’m saying. But I called you and I told you that I had tattooed your name on me. And what was your reaction? Do you remember when I told you on the phone?

Jennifer: I don’t think I was that happy about it.

Carson: I don’t remember your reaction, but the truth was I hadn’t —

[ Laughter ] I actually, when I told you that, I hadn’t gotten it yet.

Jennifer: Really?

Carson: Yeah.

Jennifer: Why did you lie?

Carson: And then — well, ’cause I wanted to gauge how you would feel.

Jennifer: Right. But I just didn’t like it because you were hurting yourself.

Carson: Well, so then —

Jennifer: Right, this thing happened.

Carson: Right. You went and — whatever.

Jennifer: Things happened.

Carson: And then, here’s — can we get a shot of this? Have you seen this?

Jennifer: No.

Carson: That’s where your name was.

[ Laughter ] And I did it once, but there was no way on god’s green earth I was gonna write the word “Tara” anywhere, anywhere on my body.

Jennifer: I have “Tara” on me, though, which is weird. I’m kidding.

[ Laughter ] I’m kidding. It’s a crab now.

Carson: Yeah, it’s the crab coming out of a pocketknife.

Jennifer: That’s interesting.

Carson: Yeah.

Jennifer: Thank you for that.

Carson: Would you ever get — are you in love now? Do you have a steady boyfriend?

Jennifer: No.

Carson: No? Is that difficult for you, after me?

[ Laughter ] I’m saying — it’s tough.

Jennifer: You know, it has been difficult.

[ Cheers and applause ] It has been difficult.

Carson: Where do you go? You know, where do you go?

Jennifer: It has. You?

Carson: Yeah, well, you know, here we are. We’re going to take a break, I think.

[ Laughter ] We’re way over time. We thought it would be fun, though, to take a — and you were nice enough to do this. We took a compatibility —

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: A real test to see what, you know, like “Cosmopolitan” would think about our — so we’ll take a break now. Joe, you need to just settle down.

[ Laughter ] And we’ll come back. More with Jennifer Love Hewitt after this. And the music tonight is spoon. That’s Joe Firstman. Joe, get me out of this.

Jennifer: All right!

[ Cheers and applause ]

Carson: Do you remember that? Did you see that?

Jennifer: That was embarrassing.

Carson: That was a scene from the hit CBS drama “Ghost Whisperer.”

[ Light laughter ] Where Jennifer Love Hewitt talks to the deceased.

Jennifer: No, it wasn’t. []

Carson: Do you want to comment on that? You don’t have to. It was called —

Jennifer: “Dance workout with barbie.”

Carson: Yeah, that’s what that was.

[ Laughter ] How old were you when you did that? Was that your first gig in Hollywood?

Jennifer: No, I was 12. I was just getting my boobies.

[ Laughter ] Personal comment.

Carson: Really? You had —

Jennifer: Yeah, see?

Carson: Yes.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Carson: And they just kept on gettin’ and gettin’ and gettin’ and gettin’ and —

Jennifer: All right. Okay.

Carson: The show is “Ghost Whisperer.”

[ Laughter ] It’s on CBS. And for those who haven’t seen it, and we have a lot of — we’re on late at night. If there’s, perhaps, somebody watching who hasn’t seen it, what would you say about the show that might get, like, a guy that has a bong in his mouth right now to watch your show?

[ Laughter ] It’s not just about talking to dead people. You play — you’re married in the show.

Jennifer: I do. I play a newlywed. I play an antique store owner. Neither one of those is gonna get that guy.

Carson: Right.

Jennifer: I wear tiny tops.

Carson: Okay, there you go. Now we’re on to something. You know this clip we’re about to show?

Jennifer: I don’t.

Carson: No? Well, I don’t think it’s important. I think —

[ Light laughter ]

Jennifer: Thank you.

Carson: I think it’s you in, maybe, a trunk of a car, if I’m not mistaken.

Jennifer: Oh, yes, yes, yes. I do know what this is about. There’s a woman getting married, and I’m talking about how I don’t want to know what kind of women my husband’s dated before me.

Carson: That’s funny.

[ Laughter ] Here’s Love Hewitt in “Ghost Whisperer.”

[ Cheers and applause ]

Carson: Oh, today they did? We thought it would be fun, and we have to do this very quickly now. ‘Cause love is just a chatterbox. I got to get spoon out here to perform, but we thought it would be fun to do this —

Jennifer: Do I talk too much? []

Carson: No, not at all. I’m a babbling fool, clearly. We wanted to do the compatibility quiz. You answered questions before the show. Honestly, I hope. I did the same. There was a few here that we didn’t get to that I’ll ask you now, and then we have the results which we’ll get to in a second. On a scale of one to ten, how —

Jennifer: You’re gonna ask them out loud?

Carson: Yeah, sure.

Jennifer: That’s not fair.

Carson: No one’s watching.

[ Laughter ]

Jennifer: Let me just fill them out. I don’t want to answer them out loud.

Carson: Well, look. Look, here are my answers. It says, “how important are the following?”

Jennifer: We’ll be right with you.

Carson: The one being the least, ten being the most. On those things.

Jennifer: All right.

Carson: You don’t want to answer? Okay, then write them down.

Jennifer: Okay.

Carson: Then write them down.

[ Light laughter ] How’s your mom?

Jennifer: She’s great, thanks. Yours?

Carson: Very good, thanks.

Jennifer: Okay, perfect. Oh, did you — oh, ooh.

Carson: Well, don’t cheat on mine.

Jennifer: I’m not cheating.

Carson: All right.

Jennifer: Okay. Sorry.

Carson: Well, I’m just gonna add this in. Oh, really, false? That’s awful.

Jennifer: There’s a reason.

Carson: Yeah. Well, it all makes sense now.

[ Audience aws ] Do we have the results? Jamie, do you have those? Can I get a little drum roll, here? How many questions did we answer in real life? []

Jennifer: 15.

Carson: 15.

Jennifer: I think.

Carson: We answered 15 legitimate questions for a compatibility test. I blame the breakup on you. You break it up — you blame it on me. So this is — the answer is — we are 92% compatible.

[ Laughter ]

[ Cheers and applause ] Well, maybe you’ll get it right next time. You know? I should say, I took the took the same exact quiz last night, and it said my soul mate was aeon flux, so —

[ Light laughter ]

Jennifer: But can we just say one thing, though?

Carson: Yeah.

Jennifer: Can we just say that, for the time being, no matter what happened, I was a really good girlfriend to you and you were a great boyfriend, and that —

Carson: The latter is so true. []

[ Light laughter ] The first part is definitely true, but —

Jennifer: We had a lot of fun, and it was a good time in our life. So we should end it like that.

Carson: It was. It ended a little weird. I got to be honest. A little weird.

Jennifer: It did, but that doesn’t matter.

Carson: A little weird.

Jennifer: It doesn’t matter.

Carson: Well, all right. It doesn’t matter.

[ Laughter ] It doesn’t — this is what it was like. Check. It doesn’t matter.

[ Laughter ] But you’re a sweetheart to be here. And you know I love
you. Come here. You know I love you.

Jennifer: All right.

Carson: Jennifer love hewitt, everybody. “Ghost Whisperer” is the show.

[ Cheers and applause ] It’s on CBS, on Friday nights at 8:00. 8:00.
