Jennifer Love Hewitt Apologizes for Looking “Wrecked” on First Red Carpet in 4 Years
We've all been there—you're second guessing your outfit or your hair fell flat or the lighting is really not flattering–so you just start preemptively apologizing for your appearance
Jennifer Love Hewitt, we feel you.
The actress walked her first red carpet in four years during Fox's Upfront presentation on Monday, but after she saw the night's pictures, she decided to share her worries via Instagram Stories.
"So we go to the Upfronts 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 so I just have to apologize," she said. "Wearing a black suit, not a good idea, that's A. B, not wearing enough hairspray and teasing in my hair, also a bad idea."
Hewitt's returning to the small screen with her role on Ryan Murphy's 9-1-1, but this wasn't the debut she was hoping for.
"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," she said. "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."
Let's be honest though, we love Hewitt for her prowess as an actress, and it isn't fair to criticize her red carpet appearance (though from the looks of the comments section, she was her own worst critic). She also deserves points for pulling it off with her 4-year-old daughter Autumn and 2-year-old son Atticus in tow. "[It was my] first time traveling with toddlers," she added. "Honestly, I apologize. I should have really gotten it together."
Even while issuing an unnecessary apology, she stayed positive and laughed as she described the situation.
"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," she laughed. "I should've really gotten it together!"
Let it be said: She's got it together just fine.
