Jansen Panettiere on ‘Five Minutes with Mary’

Hayden’s (not so little anymore) brother Jansen Panettiere has recently produced and starred in Five Minutes with Mary, a short film directed by Matt Beurois and inspired by true events during the November 2015 Paris terrorist attacks.

Jansen plays Danny, a boy thrust into the shootings after he receives a call from who he thinks is a friend in Paris. After hearing loud gunshots, Danny learns on the phone that a woman named Mary is trapped in the Bataclan with terrorists.

Five Minutes with Mary will be at festivals starting in January and on VOD at the end of 2017.

“We made this film to commemorate those that lost their lives during the terrorist attack on November 13 at the Bataclan in Paris, the impact this event has had on those families that have lost loved ones, people all around the world who have felt the effects of this tragedy,” Panettiere told MTV News. “Working on a project based on such an event was very motivating. It made me feel like I was representing the unspoken stories.”

Congratulations Hayden!

Sorry for the lack of news, I myself just got married! I seem to have less time for the websites at the moment, but Hayden has big news so I have made some quick updates for you guys. Firstly.. Hayden and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko are expecting their second child together! Hayden is also confirmed for Nashville Season 5.

Spotted in Utah (New Photos)

Hayden was spotted on a coffee and smoke break, wearing a padded red jacket and bright pajama pants as she stood outside a Barnes & Noble book store in Utah.

Hayden posted on Twitter recently ‘The postpartum depression I have been experiencing has impacted every aspect of my life, ‘Rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms I have chosen to take time to reflect holistically on my health and life. Wish me luck!’

It comes seven months after her she admitted herself to a rehab facility to treat the disorder. Hayden has been very open about her battle with depression since the birth of her daughter Kaya in December 2014 with fiance Wladimir Klitschko, 39.

We wish you well Hayden!

Nashville will be back! But will Juliette Barnes return?

“Nashville” is coming back to life! The country music soap opera has been renewed by CMT and “Nashies” everywhere are rejoicing knowing their voices have been heard. Drumming up a huge Twitter campaign — using the not so subtle hashtag #BringBackNashville — the show’s dedicated fanbase ignited a social media firestorm following the ABC series’ frustrating finale cliffhanger.

“Nashville” was never a ratings juggernaut, but it did develop quite a beloved following over the years. These “Nashies” did not want to be left in the dark as to whether or not Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) died in a plane crash. However, even though the show has been renewed for Season 5, clarity on whether this means Juliette lives on may not be happy news.

Showrunner Dee Johnson is not retuning, nor has it been confirmed which cast members will be signing on with the show’s new home at CMT. It’s hard to imagine the show could continue without Rayna James (Connie Britton), but it’s not her character’s life that was left in the balance at the end of Season 4. Panettiere might’ve asked the writers for that kind of tragic cliffhanger ending for time to mull over whether she wants to return to the series, or not.

Yahoo Style Interview & Photoshoot

Hayden Panettiere has always tried to be a good girl. In the mid-2000s, she was one of the few winsome actresses who made it a point to stay far away from the DUIs, shoplifting charges, and paparazzi crotch shots that were the norm for other starlets her age. The Palisades, N.Y., native was only 16 when she was cast as Heroes’ invincible cheerleader, Claire, a role that made her an instant celebrity — and, it was assumed, the next young lady in line for a public meltdown. “I grew up with the Lindsay Lohans and the Paris Hiltons,” she says one night in early February while she’s curled up in the living room of her Nashville home. “I was in the same generation. I was expected to do the exact same thing. I was watched like a hawk to not fall into the same groove, and I fought against that for so long.”

When GQ asked her in 2007, “When do you intend to become the latest screwed-up girl in Hollywood?” she responded, “Never, never. Cross our fingers.

“You can’t schedule rehab for me,” she continued. “I think I’m going to be one of those boring girls.”

At least until her mid-20s, Panettiere was right. Her life was drama-free, even as she remained as big of a star as ever, playing country troublemaker Juliette Barnes on Nashville. She earned two Golden Globe nominations for best supporting actress and had a daughter, Kaya, with her fiancé, Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko. Then last October, the 26-year-old made an announcement that she’d spent most of her career trying to avoid: She was going to rehab, taking a hiatus from Nashville to get treatment for postpartum depression. She wasn’t as untroubled as she’d been pretending to be, and she needed help.

“I was always so terrified that people weren’t going to accept me,” she says. “I finally just went, I’m tired of living afraid. I’m tired of living in fear of what people are going to think, so, you know, I’m just going to put it all out there on the table and I’m not going to worry about the judgment.”

Telling the truth turned out to give her the kind of public embrace she’d been looking for all along, with everyone from her Nashville castmates to online commenters saying how appreciative they were of her for speaking out. “The more open I was, the more acceptance I got from people,” she says. “I got so much support and so much love. I was floored. I feel much more exposed, yes, but in a great way.”

In the past, Panettiere hasn’t been openly opinionated about much — she supported Barack Obama in 2008 but isn’t planning to share her political views this election. “I was really young and I’m not sure that I did it right,” she says. But she has strong words for anyone critical of those suffering from postpartum depression, especially those who say the disease is not real. “It’s like you have no idea what you’re talking about,” she says. “If you think for one second that a mother wants to feel that way toward her child, you’re outta your mind. It is one of the most debilitating, scary, guilty feelings that you can ever feel. That a mother would not be able to connect with their child, would not be able to get a grip, or would not know what’s going on, for anybody to say that it’s false or created by us, you must have your head examined.”

At the beginning of the year, she returned to filming Nashville, which begins the second half of its fourth season on March 16. It has been tough for her to go back to playing Juliette, since the character is still in the midst of dealing with postpartum depression (a coincidence, but “it’s definitely interesting how much it has mirrored my life,” she says). “It was strange having to throw myself back into that frame of mind,” she says. “The way I do things is to pull from my own personal experience and sometimes even turn myself into what I’m portraying so that I can pull from my life and step into that person’s shoes by being able to relate.”

In general, the show has turned into more of a daytime soap opera (music CEOs falling off roofs and dying! Liver transplants gone wrong! Children you think are yours that turn out to be your dead brother’s!) than the sassy sing-off between Juliette and country legend Rayna James (played by Connie Britton) that audiences originally signed up for. But fans are still unable to turn away from the mayhem, even if they say they want to. “What’s that line from The Godfather?” Panettiere says. “‘Just when I thought I was out … they pull me back in.’ It’s really so true. We all want to feel better about our lives. We like that drama. Those highs and lows and peaks and valleys of life, that’s what keeps us satisfied. That’s what people like to see.”
