Hayden Panettiere Explains Her Break-Up from Stephen Colletti

February 28th, 2008 // 3 Comments

The “Heroes” star just spilled her guts to Seventeen magazine about why she ended her relationship with ex-boyfriend, Stephen Colletti. According to Hayden, she simply “wanted to be single at the time.” She explained, “It just hit me like a ton of bricks: This is the time I need to be with myself. It takes such a secure person to be with someone like me–it takes so much confidence; it takes so much trust.”

She’s adorable because the right answer is, “I’m a teenager. What was I supposed to do? Marry him? It’s not like I got pregnant or something.” Seriously, it’s not all that complicated. But I have to admit that she does seem older than her eighteen years would indicate. She’s getting shit done, saving whales and dating a thirty-something. I’m still not doing either of those things. In fact, I think I might be inadvertently killing whales.
