Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Love Hewitt Talk To Access Hollywood

Jennifer Love Hewitt was on with Access Hollywood Tuesday to talk about her music video role opposite Enrique Iglesias for his song ‘Hero’. Jennifer said, “We’ve been friends for a while. A little over a year, we always joked about, ‘can I be the girl in your video?’ One day, he called me up and said, “I think we have a storyline for a video that would be perfect for you.”

Enrique talked about working with veteran actor Mickey Rourke and the fight scene he had with him saying, “He does such a good bad guy, it’s actually kind of scary. When I’m actually face to face with him, it kind of scares you, which is cool. You can actually tell in the video.”

Iglesias says he hopes the video, in which he ends up being killed by Rourke’s character will have a lasting impact, “If it touches people’s hearts, I think the song will stay there forever.”
