Jennifer Love Hewitt to Be an ‘X Factor’ Judge?
Jennifer Love-Hewitt is in the running to be a judge on X Factor.
The 34-year-old actress - who hit the charts in 2002 with her single "BareNaked" - is rumored to be joining Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato on the third season of the pop star search show as a replacement for the departed L.A. Reid and Britney Spears.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, a source said, "Simon is very interested [in Jennifer]." Cowell, 53, has two positions up for grabs on the judging panel and is believed to be chatting to several celebrities about the roles, although Hewitt is believed to be one of the favorites along with Kelly Rowland - who judged one series of the UK version of The X Factor. "Simon has always remained a fan of Kelly's and she's most definitely in the mix to join the judging panel on X Factor," a source said previously.
A representative for The X Factor has described the rumors as "pure speculation," though none have yet been denied.
Hewitt has released four albums in her career but turned her back on music in 2004. However, this year she recorded a cover of "I'm a Woman" to promote the second season of her TV show The Client List.
