2009-06-16 Jennifer Love Hewitt Talks Ghost Whisperer Love & Marriage
"...If special effects like a passenger plane falling out of the sky, scaryass ghosts popping out of nowhere or some fancy-schmancy, gruesome makeup are what you love about Ghost Whisperer, we might have some bad news for you.
As we all know, times are tough and even successful television shows are feeling the pinch. At least that's what Jennifer Love Hewitt, star and coproducer of Ghost Whisperer, told us when we caught up with her at the Monte Carlo Television Festival this week.
The star told reporters about the show's cost-cutting methods for next season and even dished on her romance with Jamie Kennedy…
"We are a special effects show, so some of our special effects stuff has had to be cut in half," she said. "We haven't been able to do any actor raises for season five. We've had to cut budgets here and there. They have also been talking about actually shooting our show on HD to save money."
On the upside, J.Love's looking forward to her maternal storylines for next season: "So far, the series has been about her talking to ghosts, but also keeping herself safe and fighting the dark side. Now, she's not only looking out for herself, but looking out for a child as well." Her child, of course, is a baby boy who has the gift..."
She is also working on a country music album for release sometime this year.
