Jennifer Love Hewitt Apologizes for 'Wrecked,' 'Hot Mess' Look on Red Carpet

Jennifer Love Hewitt took to her Instagram Story to apologize for her appearance on the red carpet this week while appearing at the 2018 Upfronts after joining the cast of 9-1-1.

“It has been a really intense couple of days. Like, so great, so blessed—but intense. We go to the Upfront yesterday and nobody tells me the day is going to be like 12 hours long and the humidity is going to be almost 100 percent in New York City. So, I just have to apologize. Wearing a black suit? Not a good idea. Not wearing enough hairspray and teasing in my hair? Also a bad idea,” the 39-year-old actress said on her Instagram Story on Tuesday (May 15).

“I just have to apologize for how wrecked I look in all the pictures that have come out. I was literally melting. By the time I got to the red carpet, I was honestly melting. My hair was flat, my makeup was running off my face and I looked like I had completely forgotten I was an actress in this business who is supposed to look [perfect] when you step on the red carpet,” Jennifer continued. “That is not what I’m going to look like on the show. I’m going to have makeup on my face. I’m not going to be sweating. I’m not going to be overwhelmed by being in front of a red carpet and crews again. Honestly, I apologize. I should’ve really gotten it together!”

Jennifer then added, “I’m going to be killing my boxing workouts again, getting in great shape mentally, physically and emotionally for all that’s ahead when we start the season. I’m just feeling really grateful, so I hope you’re excited. I’m excited. And I’m really sorry for looking like a hot mess on the red carpet yesterday. Oh, my God! I was so hot! I was like literally melting. Like, melting. Melting! But…I had a blast!”

Season two of 9-1-1 will air on Mondays in the fall.

    only good feature are her boobs, the rest went south a long time ago.

    what does she have to apologise for? and why didnt she just take off her jacket?

  • Effy

    My GUESS is someone higher up in her new show 9-1-1. Probably a “Hey Jennifer, you’re suppose to look hot to promote your new role. No one wants to see a makeup free woman.”

    Its unfortunate females get criticized for too much makeup or not enough.

    Jennifer- you don’t hae to apologize! you are beautiful!

  • wearing

    you’re pretty gross yourself

  • Marie Bunny Shepard

    Jennifer, c’mon ! You look beautiful AF. Since when woman have to apologize to be humans ?
    Are you really apologizing because you basically looked like us most of the time after a day at work ? Babe please. You should have seen me today in the stupid Parisian weather non-sense… I look way worst than your pictures.

  • Michele V

    How sad that she felt the need to apologise.

  • Sara

    Why in the world is she apologizing for not looking perfect? That is insane.

  • chaz

    What a sad world that she has to apologize for her looks. She had to say she will NOT be looking like that on the new show? How horrible, I bet some perv executives made her apologize. If she weren’t trying to push this show maybe she should come out with an obvious #metoo statement about how they are bullying her about looking like a normal person in the red carpet.

  • dee

    i agree 1000% its a shame really. Almost like she wanted to get ahead of the situation before she got shat on by the media, public, pr etc…, but she has nothing to apologise for.

    That’s terrible she thought she needed to do that. She’s a human being.

  • nicpace

    she looks like a brown-eyed Vera Farmiga!

  • rosaryblue

    Don’t apologize Jen.

  • Wendy

    I think she looks great. Yes she’s aged, but she’s 39, she looks like a normal 39 year old woman to me. Everyone is just so used to seeing 40 year olds looking like 25 year olds in Hollywood that they don’t know what to do when they see someone who looks normal.

  • Wendy

    Yes!

  • Jo

    Exactly!!

  • Nikilove

    I agree to a certain extent .
    1. A woman’s hair should be one color ….in Jennifer’s case , it should be all dark brown and long …. she looks much better with long hair.
    2. Maybe you need a little heavier make up , now that you are older . Your fake eyelashes help you a lot .
    You have some lines and crows feet now .
    3. Your body looks ok ……not as thin as before , but still ok …
    4. Accept the fact that you are not as pretty as you once were ….. call Brooke Shields if you need counseling …she aged terribly.
    5. Be grateful that you have beauty …a lot of ugly people in the world …

    I was there. It wasn’t hot, it wasn’t humid. She looked great.
