Finding and maintaining love in the spotlight can be tough. Just ask Jamie Kennedy, who says dating Jennifer Love Hewitt wasn't easy when no one wanted them together in the first place.
"People weren't rooting for a good relationship," Kennedy tells PEOPLE. "That was really hard to deal with. You see snarky headlines and eventually you just have to stop reading that stuff."
Kennedy, 42, dated his Ghost Whisperer costar, 33, for a year before the relationship "ran its course".

Single ladies, take heart: Even Jennifer Love Hewitt is daunted by the idea of diving back into the dating pool after a breakup.
"I don't like to go out to clubs and party. I'm not into 'Let's go out with one guy on a Monday and another guy on a Wednesday' – that's just not me," Hewitt, 31, tells PEOPLE. "I'm a relationship kind of girl. I like a twosome. Some people get excited about being single. I don't."
Hewitt and her Ghost Whisperer costar Jamie Kennedy, 39, quietly split recently after a year together.

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy have split, but the Ghost Whisperer costars are saving the drama for the small screen.
A source close to the couple insists there was no infidelity or other smoking gun behind their breakup, and says it was a mutual decision by two people who remain friends.
"It wasn't contentious," the source tells PEOPLE. "It had kind of just run its course … They just sort of looked at each other and said, 'We like each other and we make each other laugh, but this isn't for the long-term.' "

After a year-long romance, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy have broken up, a rep has confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE.
No further details were available.
Though some in the blogosphere called them an unlikely couple, Kennedy and Hewitt regularly gushed over each other.
When Kennedy first confirmed the romance in March 2009, he told Ryan Seacrest during a radio interview, "I'm in love!" Describing his costar on Ghost Whisperer, Kennedy said: "It's like, 'Wow, you are hot. You can sing, you can dance, you're like, so smart and, wow, you can cook pasta fagioli, too.' "
Hewitt called her beau "hilarious," but praised him as more than just a funnyman. "There are people in your life who are just supportive and who just look at you and they see who you are," Hewitt told Ellen DeGeneres last year. "And [Jamie] really saw who I was as a person more than anybody had ever done in my whole life. I think that's for me when I sort of went, 'Oh, wow.' "

Though Valentine's Day is still more than two weeks away, Jamie Kennedy isn't waiting to be loving.
"He's done a bunch of romantic things just because that's who he is," says girlfriend Jennifer Love Hewitt. "It's hard to pick just one."
Kennedy does have something special up his sleeve for Feb. 14, which he plans to celebrate with Hewitt in Massachusetts. Without getting specific, Kennedy, 39, said there would be "a little chocolate, a little roses" involved.

New Moon may be about a love triangle, but it was couples night at the party after the film's Los Angeles premiere Monday night.
Following the screening of Twilight's much-anticipated sequel, costars and fans headed to L.A.'s Hammer Museum.
Jennifer Love Hewitt and boyfriend Jamie Kennedy attended the party, which had an Italian theme as a nod to the New Moon Volturi scenes set in Volterra, Italy. "They were holding hands and walking around, they kept to themselves for the most part," says a fellow partygoer. "They looked like they were having a good time."
Another set of costars who seemed happy to be hanging out? Glee cast members Lea Michele and Mark Salling. "They were whispering, giggling, and talking closely to each other," says the source. "They looked like they were flirting!" (For the record, Michele's rep says the costars are not a couple.)

Buzz about an impending breakup between Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy is just that – buzz, according to the Ghost Whisperer star.
"I'm not going to lie – it's not annoying, it's hurtful," Hewitt told PEOPLE Saturday at the Children's Institute Hosts Poker for a Cause in Commerce, Calif., to benefit Ghost Whisperer costar Camryn Manheim's charity.
"It's really hurtful that people say that," says Hewitt, 30, who attended the event with her beau of 8 months, costar Jamie Kennedy. "Because he is like the most awesome person."
