Before interviewing the actress on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the "I Dare You" singer Kelly Clarkson took a moment to detail a special interaction she had with Jennifer Love Hewitt 20 years ago.
Jennifer Love Hewitt said that she adores Kelly Clarkson so much, and that is very cool to be there. The talk show host, 38, then recalled the moment that stuck with her so long at an award show while she was a finalist on the first season of Idol.
She recalled people were really mean to them, because they're from a talent show, and it was the first season. Everyone was so rude to them on the carpet, and at the show. It was so bad, a horrible experience. But Jennifer Love Hewitt ran up to Kelly Clarkson out of nowhere, and were like, 'Oh my gosh, I'm really rooting for you.'
Jennifer Love Hewitt told her to please keep the ones she loves so close, and it'll end up being about a few people in your life, unfortunately, but that this business can be really hard. And just remember to just keep those people that really love you.
Kelly Clarkson remembered Jennifer Love Hewitt giving her that advice and was really, really kind, at such an unkind time for her personally. Kelly Clarkson then thanked her again, as it meant the world to her. She was so nice that she's been looking forward to interviewing her.
