Hayden Panettiere is the Next Angelina Jolie

Hayden Panettiere is the Next Angelina Jolie

Hayden Panettiere spoke out about her Save the Whales campaign at the Forecast Earth Summit by The Weather Channel Friday night in Washington, D.C.

The 18-year-old Heroes hottie had lots to say to People:

On being the the next Angelina Jolie: Absolutely, I would take that. She was definitely one of my inspirations growing up and she was definitely somebody I looked up to.”

On her attempt to protect dolphins facing slaughter from local fishermen: “I grew up near the Hudson River in New York. I didn’t grow up in the water; I don’t surf. People think I surf because of the footage. I was just in a panic and happened to paddle really fast – I was hauling butt! It caused a great amount of stir. [In a town where] people like to see young girls in Hollywood get arrested, we don’t have a reason why we would [return to Japan], and we don’t know of any good that could come of it at the moment… [but] I don’t mind getting arrested.”

On the downfalls of success: “It completely ruined my personal life. I mean, you walk out the door and you’ve got ten cameras in your face. Obviously everything in my life is on display whether it be true or false – 99 percent of it false.”

On her ideal Friday night: “At home in bed with a movie and pizza and good friends. I’d probably be watching Little Britain, a BBC TV show. It is phenomenal.”

On her dating life since she turned 18: “I’m not really a chain dater, and I’m not someone who kind of gives herself easily. So, I think it’s attracting creepy old men, but I guess it’s changed a little bit. I don’t know [if I have anyone special in my life]. I have a lot of special people in my life.”

On the criticism of Jennifer Love Hewitt’s recent bikini shots: “Did you see TMZ the other day where I bent over and they took a picture of me, and there was a whole conversation on whether I had cottage cheese thighs or not? It makes me feel awful. I’m sorry, but no woman looks good under overhead lighting. It was not good lighting. I’m a teenage girl and I have the same body issues. There are parts of my body that I don’t mind, and there are parts of my body that I absolutely can’t stand. And I don’t need somebody pointing them out to me, because trust me, I know they’re there. You don’t need to tell anyone else about it. It doesn’t need to be strewn across a magazine. It’s my business. And the fact that you don’t have anything better to talk about than my thigh fat is absolutely absurd. It just goes to show you the pathetic people in this world. I give Jennifer Love Hewitt all the support in the world. She’s beautiful.”

Be sure to read Hayden‘s letter to the Japanese Government Fisheries Agency.

    Pathetic.

  • piper, with a low

    Here’s an idea…

    Why don’t Hayden and Megan Fox duke it out for the title of ‘The Next Angelina Jolie’, while the real Angelina Jolie continue to be the enigmatic, intriguing, unique icon that silly b*tches like these two try, and fail, to be.

  • David

    Hayden Panettiere is the ugliest whale ever!!!
    Next whore-lina! Yeah we need more home-wreckers in this world! She looks exactly like miss-piggy! I suggest you start saving miss-piggy look-a-like instead fat-ugly-chiwawa-Hayden Panettiere!

  • [~Famous~] – The God.

    “the next jolie”… stfu!

  • null

    OMG! Hilarious. What a presumptuous little girl. She makes a ruckus in Japan and suddenly she’s the next Angelina? But I guess it’s not her fault – it’s the interviewer who brought it up. What a joke.

  • SDA

    short leg

  • http://iamthelostgirl.wordpress.com TheLostGirl

    I agree the trousers make her leg look stumpy :(

  • [~Famous~] – The God.

    c’mon, we all know she doesn’t want to be like that self-mutilating drug-abusing whor’e jolie. she’s was asked a question and gave a politically correct.

  • Dude

    “she was one of my inspirations growing up”
    Whats with generations Ys inability to understand age

  • newbie

    Here’s another idea, instead of trying to be someone else, why not be herself and stop trying so hard?

    Japan loves Angelina. After that letter she wrote insulting the whole nation, I think she burned her bridges there. Girl obviously doesn’t know that diplomacy and respect go a long way in solving problems.

    Points for her though for doing something constructive instead of self-destructing like the Lohens and the Spears in Hollywood.

  • the_original_nika

    the next angelina, wtf!! Its probably the interviewers fault for bringing it up.

  • paula

    people on here are being way too harsh…I don’t know Hayden…so I can’t comment on what her true intentions are humanitarian wise, but the interviewer asked her about Angelina and she answered the question…Angelina has spoken endless times about the inspiration of Princess Diana in her humanitarian efforts…so she also is imitating someone else’s work…that is normal for everyone…we are inspired by the deeds of other people and it helps us become better people…so all the cruel comments about her being fat, ugly, not close to Angelina are really unnecessary…show some maturity and stop making such pathetic comments…give the girl a break already!!

  • the_original_nika

    diplomacy and respect go a long way in solving problems, Indeed.

  • hay ho puleeeeese

    LMAO..stop ..stop.. HAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaa,,that’s the most RIDICULOUS THING I’VE EVER HEARD..HEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAA ,,she doesn’t even have her G.E.D. Haaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!:smile:haaaaa..She WISHES,,haaaaaaahe,,yeah right,,,cough,,cough,,wink,,excuse I’ve gotta peeeeee!!

  • visa fan

    Whether or not you like dolphins they going to be saved!:) Hayden is using her holy kakapoopy.

  • Jules

    Its amazing that people bag on what she’s doing or trying to do. I guess it’s pretty easy to do when your sorry ass is sitting at a computer doing oh, NOTHING! At least she’s out there trying to do good.
    Give it a rest people. Show some class.

  • no way

    This fame hoe doesn’t even read. Leave our dolphins alone. I thought Japan was gonna arrest her.

  • jayne

    We all know that she is no AJ,. she did a publicity stunt to get her in good with the public. That’s an insult to Angie. We see her shopping, dressing way to old or too exposed ect,,but AJ., don’t think so. Her role model was her mom probably and that doesn’t say much.

  • Hulla

    God you people suck.
    You just don’t understand how she meant that Angelina comment, she obviously respect Angelina for all the attention she brings to the problems the world is facing and wouldn’t mind to do that herself in the future.

    I respect her for that.

  • tantei

    Poor Hayden ! , look what Angie has done : she heals the world . Look what Hayden did : she annoyed many people and just made the situation become worse .

    They are 2 activists ( if you can call Hayden so ) , but to be the next Angie , she should stop this joke first.

  • angel hair

    yah… comparing her to angie? don’t even.
    she seems to have a decent head on her shoulders, but girl, you need to stop taking yourself so seriously!

  • sam p

    GUYS STOP IT,she is doing her best like angie is doing her best so why hayden cant be the next angie.?|
    you all are being too harsh.
    IT S A GREAT DEAL THAT SHE IS DOING SOMETHING UNLIKE OTHERS STARLETS LIKE PARIS,BRITNEY,LA LOHAN…..

  • ?

    poor hayden. maybe she should say j.a. was her inspiration growing up. in a few years she and j.a. will have something in common. both will be washed up forgotten blonde boring tv. hacks.

  • sam p

    angel hair -HAYDEN wast comparing herself to angie she said angie is her role model so…..

  • sam p

    angel hair -HAYDEN wasnt comparing herself to angie she said angie is her role model so…..

  • hayden p. rocks

    hayden is much better than has been angie,hayden saves whales and dolphins angie cant claim any of that.plus shes more popular, angie is an old person.hayden should be compared to a higher authority, like a king or queen.

    Hola to everybody!!!
    It is a shame that people makes a big deal about this stupidity. I’m glad that Hayden follows the good steps of Angelina Jolie. Angie is a great example to follow, and I mean that she made her mistakes, but then she put all the energie to alll her good causes. Lets not forget that Angie too took small steps to get where she is now. Lets give Hayden the chance to get there too. I love that she is not a train wreck like Lohan, Spears or whomever. The more people gets involved in good causes the better. Good for you Hayden!!!!!!!

    agree
    rizos-you used to post a lot here coz i remember of your name on brangie threads (like almost 2 years ago)
    are you the same poster?

  • hayden p. rocks

    you people dont get it hayden rules angie is done for. its called take over.

  • salome

    You guys are being way too freakin harsh. I like Hayden- she’s adorable, down to earth, sweet, sincere, and comes off as very articulate in this interview. While she may not be the next Katherine Hepburn, she’s certainly got decent acting chops; and I respect her for wanting to use her celebrity to do some good in this world, and at such a young age too. She could easily just be another vapid blonde starlet type sluttin’ it up in Hollywood, but she doesn’t do that at all, she remains mature, grounded, and has some self-respect. The fact that she takes the time out of her busy schedule and hot career to promote good causes makes her a-ok in my book.

  • WTF?

    Nobody wanted to be like Angelina jolie growing up. She should stfu and stop lying to get publicity. There is no next Angelina Jolie. She’s one of a kind. But you can find 100 Haydens around.

  • r

    Hayden is not attractive at all…without makeup she is average looking

  • lila

    I don’t see why having a cause that you care about means you should have to be compared to Angelina Jolie. There are other people (and celebrities) that do the same or a lot more than Angelina – she isn’t exactly god’s gift to humanity and charity.

    You know I actually wish her well. It is hard to be the “it” girl. I know sometimes I’m sick of seeing so many pictures of her but then it isn’t her fault. I just hope that she is allowed room to grow and really study her craft so that she can have longevity. There seem to be such a quick burnout

  • hayden p. rocks

    thats right num40 hayden is the ‘it’ girl. angie is old news. not it anymore,since hayden has come on the scene. hayden has done more than angie will ever do. hayden is younger,prettier and has skills in acting. check out hereo’s.other young alledge starletts step back.hayden should be compared to real kings and queens,everyone else is boring.

    Yes, Hola to you. And has been a long time, thanks for ask. Happy Holidays :)

    Hayden Pantyliner and Angelina in the same sentence? No.

  • toik

    She is a foolish woman.

  • k.j

    At first stop a lie.
    Hayden is a liar

  • hayden p. rocks

    angie is yesterday news.

  • Blowhole

    Her thighs look kid of fat and cottage-cheesy. Must be the lights.

  • eli

    excuse me?! hayden has done more than angie will ever do?!

    WTF?! it’s alright to applaud this little girl for what she is doing…but to downplay what Angie has achieved in her solid career as an actress and humanitarian just to make your idol look good is downright stupid.

    come back here after maybe 5-10 yrs when hayden has won back-to-back Golden Globes, an Academy award and a string of other awards…also when she has really accomplished something more than just being the “iti girl these days.

    having said that…i am no hater but please guys, some of you are way too crazy and hateful that you don’t see reason. give credit to AJ because it is due her. your hayden will have her time. as some said, give her a chance to grow. good luck nonetheless.

    and to the sore losers who keep on saying bad things about AJ…let’s just say that that woman is admired and respected all over the world and nothing you bitter haters will say is gonna change that.

  • Love her!

    I love this girl, seriously. She’s really talented and respects herself! You Go!

  • Love her!

    The comments on these boards are really hilarious these days…people can be rough…
