HEROES gal is 18

Hayden-Panettiere-Bikini-1-17
Hayden Panettiere has just passed her 18th birthday which apparently means she legal to drive or something. The websites which specialize in photos of female celebs in bikinis (one of which we snagged the above from) have been having a field day with Panettiere, who plays the cheerleader on HEROES, for a while. Is it just us or is she were 26 would no one be particularly interested in this lively and charming lass?

    I don’t know. I either didn’t know or had forgotten that she was actually that young. I’m used to seeing high school students played by mid-20-somethings that I assumed she was that age. That’s actually pretty unusual, having an actual teenage actress play a teenager!

    I have to say that I think I agree with what The Beat’s getting at here: she’s not that hot. Granted she may very well still be out of my league, and even if I were faced with having a “go/no-go” decision, it would most certainly be a “go” (though that says more about me than it does about her), but notwithstanding she’s just sorta…..meh.

    P.S. I’m always amused by the “she’s 18 so now she’s legal” thing that people track on young starlets considering that depending on where you’re geographically located within this country, that could happen at 16 years old, or 15 years old, or even at 14. Food for thought, fellow perverts.

  3. She’s demonstrated a pretty good acting talent on Heroes, IMO.

    She also seems to be fearless, smart, and not afraid to be herself–something young, blonde, pretty things in Hollywood often aren’t.

    She was quoted on Letterman the other night saying she excited to turn 18…so she can buy porn.

    She’d be my pick for Supergirl.

  4. I feel so very sorry for her appearing at comic book conventions. No young woman should have that number of leering, oily twenty-somethings mentally undress them before the age of 18.

  5. Michael: I booth-bitched for a friend at cons my junior and senior years of HS, and I turned out okay!

    “No young woman should have that number of leering, oily twenty-somethings mentally undress them before the age of 18.”

    that’s probably preferable, on the whole, to all the 30 and 40-somethings doing it too. :>

    Look around any high school today. Are y’all going to find a bunch of drop-dead gorgeous babes? HAH! You’re going to find normal, human, regular-looking teens – boys and girls. I like Hayden precisely because she looks so frelling NORMAL, which is so unlike most TV shows.

    Those love apples were hand-crafted by God.

  9. I was expecting to feel skeevy admitting my crush on someone 13 years my junior, and then I read the above comment and feel hunky-dory about myself.

    Anyway: No young woman should have that number of leering, oily twenty-somethings mentally undress them before the age of 18.

    MOST young women probably have that number of etc., etc.; they just don’t have to experience them in such a concentrated format.

    Anyway, the big joke is that unless any of us are hardbodied Hollywood beefcake below the age of 25 we’re likely not getting the merest sniff of any Hayden loving, so dream on.

    I’m not sure what the hypothetical means — she’s a cute girl, and would still be so if she were 26.

    I admit that like CBrown I had assumed she was mid-20s when I first watched the show, simply because most actors and actresses who play teens are. It wasn’t until various blogs and such mentioned her age that I found out she was actually the age she plays, and that impressed me in terms of her skill — she’s certainly more talented and professional than several famous actresses a few years her senior.

    I suppose there’s always the appeal of the “forbidden fruit”, but don’t knock her just because too many comic geeks project their fantasies.

    Hayden Panettiere is so beautiful oo my god… haha… that had be not me opposite to married she =) she enormously sexy ;) and she work pleasant and funny P.S im from sweden =P

  12. boooooooo says:

    yeh, she’d get it.

    but then again, from what i have read about her and most other similar ‘stars’, she was pretty much ‘groomed’ for celebrity by her parents. (born 1989, first role was in 1994 and lasted a couple of years, then straight into another similar role)
    if she didn’t turn out as a beautiful actress / model / singer then they would have been very disapointed and wasted a lifetime of gymnastics, acting and singing lessons, manicures and molding.

    makes me feel ill that instead of letting talent develop and promoting and enjoying it naturally, the accepted way is to force it at every point. then we get situations where every aspect of the individual is controlled and can be marketed, so we have posts like this where when a 1 in a million girl turns 18 everyone talks about it, because its be engineered to be like that.

  13. Would we be interested if she was 26?

    18 or 26 Hayden is hot hot hot.

    Yes we’d be iterested dummy.

  14. Time to work on that body!She is FAT!!!

  15. Big Daddy says:

    Hayden Panettiere is absolutely hot!!!

  16. michael says:

    shes amazing

  17. I would say that Hayden is a very gifted actress even if we don’t take age into consideration.
    On the appearance side? I’d say she is very attractive… oh well… A guy can dream can’t he :P

    On the subject of “grooming”… I’d agree with you if it was something that the child was forced to do. But as long as you can keep it fun and interesting for the child and you still find time for the education then I see no harm.

    Let’s admit it- Hayden is hot regardless of her age. She has appeared on the covers of FHM, Cosmo and a million other mags. Does anyone really believe she got the cover shot because of her acting talents?

    If any guy says he wouldn’t “hit it”, he’s either the world’s biggest liar or straight-up gay. As a matter of fact, I would bet that most women would hit it, too!!

    Come on Hef— call her already!!!

  20. Carlos says:

    Dude, i no that!!

    She’s gonna be 19 this year

    P.S. im seeing her soon yay!!

  21. I really love Heyden when I first saw her in the movie Bring it on! She is so gorgeous teen back then and now she grew up into a very hot lady! Wow

  22. you should proofread your posts you fucking dumbass

  23. hiro nakamura says:

    i personally think that what makes her so it is the fact that she is only 18. when you look at most of the hot actresses and models, they all seem fake or have implants (not saying i dont love them) but she is 18 and looks sexy and looks real. i think most of the hottest actresses/models out there are the ones that have the whole “girl next door” appeal to it. (i am sure many of us wish she was the girl next door and not that swamp monster that reality gives us)

  24. hey wats the diff between singing and screaming a note i no there is but everytime i go for a jigh note it sounds like im screaming

  25. justafan says:
