Jennifer Love Hewitt may be “an aggressive" flirt, but it seems Adam Levine sorta likes it.
Hewitt was recently pretty outspoken about her crush on the Maroon 5 singer, telling Ellen DeGeneres earlier this month, “I just read two days ago that Adam Levine is single again . . . I'm just saying.”
She also joked that "The Voice" mentor would "probably never speak to me" after she publicly bared her heart following his breakup with Sports Illustrated model Anne Vyalitsyna.
But Levine returned the playful banter Thursday when he visited "Ellen."
"I heard about that," he said. "That was aggressive."
But, he continued, "It was really sweet and flattering. Beautiful life, you know, when a beautiful woman says nice things about you."
However, the 33-year-old drew the line when DeGeneres offered to set them up.
"I'm cool,” replied the singer, who offered his views on marriage in Paper magazine's May issue.
"I want to study marriage," he revealed. "I want to learn about it, I want to know it. I want to figure out whether or not I want to do it. I'm not just going to leap into it, because that's not good for anybody."
