Wilmer mentioned to Howard that he had been with actress Jennifer Love Hewitt but gave no details. Howard asked him to rate the starlet on a scale of 1 to 10 and Wilmer quickly came back with an 8.
Soon after the interview aired, Jennifer was quoted in an interview where she denied any sexual encounters with Wilmer. She responded to reports of his claims with a laugh and said, "I was told, like, that we had all these very steamy encounters, and I was like, really? Well, I would have loved to have been there!"
