Who Is Hayden Panettiere
Hayden Panettiere is widely known as the unbreakable cheerleading superheroine from Heroes, but this pint-sized starlet is also a rising activist, wannabe singer, spokesperson and movie star.
American actress Hayden Panettiere, as of 2020, has a net worth of $15 million dollars.
Natural Born Star
Hayden Leslie Panettiere was born in Palisades, New York to former soap opera star Lesley R. Vogel and Fire Department Lieutenant Skip Panettiere. She followed in her mother’s footsteps before taking any of her own, appearing in commercials by the age of 11 months.
By the time she was five, Panettiere had won the role of Sarah Roberts on One Live to Live, and by eight she was starring as Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light. In 2000, Panettiere won her first major film role as Sheryl Yoast in Disney’s Remember the Titans. In 2002, she made another splash on the small screen when she was cast as Calista Flockhart’s daughter on Ally McBeal.
TV’s Tiniest Heroine
But Panettiere didn’t rise to national prominence until she was cast as Claire Bennet, a cheerleader with regenerative healing powers, on NBC’s Heroes. The show, which ran from 2006 to 2010, made Hayden a fan favorite and a household name. She won the hearts of fanboys everywhere when she made her rounds on the sci-fi convention circuit, signing autographs galore at New York and San Diego Comic-Cons. In 2007, she shed her innocent school girl image (and her clothes) when she stripped down to her skivvies in a sexy photo shoot for GQ, which named Panettiere their Obsession of the Year.
She used her Heroes success to attempt a singing career after recording a few tracks for Disney in her early years, but her debut single ‘Wake Up Call’ was a critical failure, and her career as a musician was a flash in the pan. She had much more success as a spokesperson, appearing in multiple commercials as the face of Neutrogena and in national advertising campaigns as the spokeswoman for Candie’s.
After Heroes was cancelled, Panettiere remained in the limelight, winning the title role in the 2009 romantic comedy I Love You, Beth Cooper! She became the latest star to battle the Ghostface killer in 2011’s Scream 4, and is also set to play the infamous convicted killer Amanda Knox in Lifetime’s controversial adaptation of The Amanda Knox Story.
An Active Personal Life
Though Panettiere is mostly known for her acting, she has also made headlines for her dating life and personal beliefs. She has been in several high-profile relationships, first with Laguna Beach star and Kristin Cavallari ex, Stephen Colletti. The couple parted ways in 2007, and rumors quickly began to spread that Panettiere was dating her hunky Heroes costar Milo Ventimiglia. Ventimiglia made their relationship public in 2008, but it was over by 2009. Soon after, Panettiere shocked fans when she started dating Ukranian heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko, who is over a foot taller than the pint-sized star and 13 years older.
In 2007, she made a serious splash in the headlines when she traveled to Japan to protest the slaughter of dolphins by local fishermen. The event drew international attention, and can be seen in the Oscar-winning documentary The Cove. She has also spoken out against commercial whaling, and shown her support for Greenpeace, Ronald McDonald House Charities and President Barack Obama.
