Before Jennifer Love Hewitt began cozying up to her Client List costar Colin Egglesfield, the actress very publicly set her sights on Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

"I always have my eyes out," a then-single Hewitt, 33, said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in early April. "I just read two days ago that Adam Levine is single again . . . I'm just saying."

Though Hewitt later joked that Levine, 33, would "probably never speak to me" after professing her love on national TV, The Voice mentor was impressed by her determination.

"I heard about that. That was aggressive," Levine joked on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday. "It was really sweet and flattering. Beautiful life, you know, when a beautiful woman says nice things about you."

When host Ellen DeGenres, 54, offered to set them up, Levine laughed and said, "I'm cool." The musician, after all, is still recovering from his recent breakup with Sports Illustrated model Anne Vyalitsyna.

While one source previously told Us Weekly that Levine was "blindsided" and "heartbroken" by his breakup with Vyalitsyna, another explained that he "wasn't ready" to marry her. Levine further explained his hesitancy to settle down in Paper's May issue.

"I want to study marriage. I want to learn about it I want to know it," he said. "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."
