They were a gift, she says with a sheepish smile, from her boyfriend Jamie Kennedy who is one of the other reasons why she is feeling so, well, elevated right now.
The 30-year-old actress and the 39-year-old comedian and actor met on the hit US TV series 'Jamie is a good man with shoes; he will buy you any shoe you want because he loves them.
At the time that the drama premiered - in 2005 - Jennifer's promising early career was on the wane.
