Originally posted 10/24/2008 11:00AM

Audiences know her from her series Crossing Jordan, but actress Jill Hennessy says that her first love was singing.

"It's what I did before I acted," she told PEOPLE Monday at a party to celebrate Mario Batali's new book, Spain … A Culinary Roadtrip, at Bon Appetit's Supper Club and Café. "To be honest I never thought the acting thing would get off the ground."

Hennessy, 39, said she recorded an album, which she describes as "sort of alternative, folk, rock" in Austin with producer Patrick McCarthy, whom she met through Batali.

Jill Hennessy Searching for Baby Name that Rhymes with 'Mastropietro'

Originally posted 10/24/2007 09:00AM

A pregnant Jill Hennessy, looking radiant in a black dress and high heels, stepped out Tuesday night with hubby Paolo Mastropietro, and the discussion quickly turned to her unborn baby boy – namely, what the heck she's going to call her second child.

"I honestly wish I had a good name picked out right now," she said at City Harvest's Bid Against Hunger fundraiser in New York City. "His last name is Mastropietro and we're racking our brains. If you have anything that rhymes with the last name, let me know.

Her current plan? "What we're going to do is we have a short list and we are going to wait for the delivery and hold up the list to the kid's face and try to compare his face to something that works."

Anne Hathaway: Wonder Woman?

She sports million of dollars' worth of Chopard's jewelry in The Princess Diaries 2, but Anne Hathaway says that in real life, she has "a very strange relationship with jewelry, probably because of my fascination with Wonder Woman." Say what? "I believe that accessories are magical," she says. "Different pieces come into my life and they have special significance to me and I wear them to death." Well, okay, but let's get back to the Wonder Woman obsession. "I have a Wonder Woman toothbrush. I used to have a SpongeBob toothbrush. Then I lost it. So Wonder Woman was the replacement," the 21-year-old actress reveals. So now that comic book characters are all over the movies, what with the Spider-Man and X-Men franchises and the upcoming remake of Superman, how about Anne Hathaway as Wonder Woman on the big screen? "That would be wonderful," she says. "It would be fun to fly through the air and kick people's butts while wearing the good old red, white and blue."
