Jennifer Love Hewitt insists she hasn't had a "break-up" haircut.

The 'Ghost Whisperer' actress recently had her locks cut short, just weeks after splitting from her boyfriend of a year Jamie Kennedy, but says her new look is nothing to do with her change in circumstances.

She said: "I know everybody thinks it's a break-up haircut-but it's not.

"It's not about that. It's just a 'I-need-a-change' haircut!"

Despite the attention her trim has received, Jennifer insists she doesn't mind as she has been amused by the way her cut has been reported.

She added to People magazine: "My favourite headline so far was 'She Cut That Man Right Out of Her Hair.' But no-it was really just for me."

Although she is newly single, Jennifer thinks she will make a "good wife" one day.

She said recently: "It's what life handed me, and I'm OK with it. I know wholeheartedly that I'm a really good partner. I think I'm a really good girlfriend, and I think that I could be a really good wife. I know that I love being able to give my love out to someone. I know there is somebody great out there for me."
