Jennifer Love Hewitt is "open to" adoption.

The 'Ghost Whisperer' star has been single since splitting from boyfriend Jamie Kennedy in March but would seriously consider taking on the care of a child even without a man in her life.

When asked if she would adopt alone, she said: "I'm absolutely open to it!"

Though the 31-year-old actress insists she is enjoying being single, she admits she prefers to have a boyfriend.

She told In Touch Weekly magazine: "I feel like as a person, I am better as a couple. But I am learning a lot about myself."

Jennifer's latest role was as a prostitute in TV movie 'The Client List' and the brunette beauty recently admitted her mother was "proud" of her for being brave enough to tackle the role.

The actress - who took up pole dancing to get in shape for the movie - said: "My mom's like, 'I'm so proud. You're pole dancing and you're going to play a prostitute. Awesome!'

"It's like, 'Yeah, what you always dreamed about, mama!' But you know, it's a great part."
