Hayden Panettiere: fashion and a chat
Hayden Panettiere, the not so sweet Juliette Barnes on Nashville is pretty down to earth, even reaching the top 40 chart with her song “Telescope”. Panettiere shares some of her not so Diva moments in a recent interview and Glamour cover shoot for April. Here’s a peek at some Hayden panettiere quotes before the issue hits the newsstands!
Glamour: On coming up in the business with a lot of other young stars…
Hayden Panettiere: “I came up in the Messy Generation. The generation of the disaster child.”
On staying grounded despite coming up in what she calls “the Messy Generation” in Hollywood…
“It’s not that I didn’t go to clubs, have my picture taken. I was 16 years old. I was experimenting just like any kid. But I had friends and family around me to yank me back when I was heading in the wrong direction. Every turn that I made, somebody was waiting for me to fall on my face and catch it onfilm. The thing that really saved me was that I still had that healthy fear of my parents—I still had a midnight curfew at 18!”
On how she feels about young girls looking up to her...
“I never put my name in the ballot box and said, ‘Hey, I want you to vote me as your teen leader and icon and your Miss Perfect.’ I will never say that I’m perfect; I will never pretend to be perfect. That’s just unrealistic. You’re kind of unexpectedly put in this position of becoming a role model; that’s not something you choose.”
On how she, a girl from New York transplanted to Nashville, met her boyfriend, Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko…
[Laughs.] “Life is like a lunchroom at school. In this industry you’ve got little individual tables of actors, singers, rap stars, this, that, the other. But it’s a big industry that also encompasses anyone in the public eye. An acquaintance of ours did a coffee-table book, and the proceeds went to genocide prevention. We met at the party for the launch of the book; we’ve been friends for five years—we’ve never not been close.”
On the meaning of her tattoo…
“It’s Italian: Vivere senza rimpianti. When I was younger, I was upset, and my dad said he wanted to show me something. He slammed onedoor of the bathroom, and the closet door popped open—it was a trick with the air. He said, ‘Whenever one door closes, another one always opens.’ So my tattoo means ‘Live without regrets.’ It’s not that you don’t regret things in life, but you at least try to learn from them. It’s misspelled too [accidentally, as rimipianti]—so I literally have to live by that advice!”
