We have added some candids of Hayden wearing a purple bikini at the beach in Hollywood Florida on March 30th 2013. Also some of the Glamour pics are starting to surface… stay tuned for more.
Glamour: Rumor has it you’re back together with Wladimir Klitschko?
Hayden Panettiere: [Huge smile.] I think it’s pretty obvious. I’m not going to deny it.
Glamour: How does a girl from New York transplanted to Nashville meet a Ukrainian boxer?
Hayden Panettiere: [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.
Glamour: So what’s different this time?
Hayden Panettiere: It’s like the 2.0 version. I’ve always had great relationships and stayed really good friends with the guys I’ve dated. It blows my mind sometimes that us getting together has gotten so much attention. It’s like, Really? This is breaking news?
Glamour: How would you say your parents have affected your relationships?
Hayden Panettiere: They split up when I was 18. There was this whole thing, and my dad went to jail. [In 2008 her father was arrested for allegedly striking her mother in the face.] When it happened, I knew my denying it or saying it was false wasn’t going to do anything. People would just say, “Oh, she’s in denial.” My parents are really good people—they just are not meant to be together.
Glamour: It seems that everyone in Hollywood is getting married younger and younger these days. What’s the timing going to be for you?
Hayden Panettiere: I don’t really have a plan. I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother. Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, “Your life ends—you’re never going to be able to do anything again!” And I’m like, “What are you talking about?” Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids.
Glamour: Could you be with the father of your children now?
Hayden Panettiere: It wouldn’t shock me!
