Hayden Panettiere Talks Politics

Hayden Panettiere Talks Politics

Hayden Panettiere stocks up on groceries at Whole Foods supermarket in Los Angeles on Monday.

The 18-year-old Heroes hottie loaded her own car with eco-friendly reusable grocery bags and shared a laugh with the parking lot security guard. She wore white track pants and Uggs and toted around a gold Kooba handbag.

Hayden continued to wear her support for the Save the Whales Again! campaign by wearing a gold Save the Whales! pendant on her necklace. She just returned from Washington DC after attending a rally to support the cause.

As for her politics, Hayden has been talking to parties from both sides of the fence.

“You know, I haven’t really picked who I’m going to support yet,” she told E!. I have spoken to Barack about the whales and the situation going on there, and I asked him his views on it, and he grew up in Hawaii. He’s got a very wonderful outlook on it. Hopefully later on, [I'm] having a phone call with the McCain party and also in the midst of contacting the Clinton party. I’ll hopefully be hearing from them on the whole situation and what they’re willing to do to stop it.”

    Lol….. I applaud her efforts but has she heard the news about the economy? None of these candidates give a fcuk about the whales

    she looks nice. But there are other issues out there besides the whales. Like #5 said I doubt whaling issues are anywhere near a top priority for them.

    OMG… young & naive.

    how do people feel comfortable in hair extensions?
    How do you wash it & have your man run his fingers through?
    run in the wind on the ocean?
    it seems to be the most uncomfortable thing to me.

    I’m buying the MakeitRight pink bags..environmentally friendly & it’s made by the blind AND it helps Brad Pitt’s NOLA project.

    She’s still young, so I guess this is a good start for her. Better than going out partying. Still hard to take her seriously, though.

    Rae Says:

    Saving the whales is great but surely these candidates have other things to focus on and worry about right now than dealing with this girl.

    haha…silly spoilt little rich girl. Her biggest issue is whales. Aww. The country you live in has a poverty rate of 12%, and it’s the richest damn country in the world! China (!) has a 10% poverty rate by comparison and Norway has 1%… And this is the economic system that the US is trying to export to the world through institutions like the IMF. 47 million people in america don’t have health insurance. But she’s upset that japan and iceland are killing a few whales. Way to prioritize.

    If we don’t start taking action in the climate issue soon then none of this will matter…there will be mass extinctions of several species of animals, not to mention more frequent and more serious hurricanes, floods and droughts that will effect PEOPLE aswell as animals in parts of the world that are already weakened. All of this will also cause huge migration of people trying to get into safety and conflicts aswell as economic crisis will inevitably be a result of this.

    But oh what about the cute little whales and dolphins…well…they’re important too but you’ve got to see the big picture. You shouldn’t base your voting on simply one, small issue.

    lise Says:

    kudos to her for finding an issue – she leveraged her celebrity and used it to bring one issue to national attention that otherwise would have received none amidst the admittedly bigger issues. if others like her were doing the same, everyone would be the better for it. i think its loathsome to call her a silly spoilt little rich girl, if you need a celebrity to tear down, look to the scores of people her age (~99% of them) wasting their apathetic miserable lives away at the clubs and bars every Thursday through Saturday night

    Who cares about whales? I love seafood. It tastes so yummy ^_^

    Save the chickens, foxes, cows and pigs.

    devilgirl Says:

    While I applaud her political efforts and her attempt to save the whales, I question her views and speaking so politically– after all , she’s 18. What does she know? When your parents have you working as a teen, you fly all over the world for whales, and you’re dating your 30-year-old coworker– hmmm. Maybe not the best judge of who should lead our country, non?

    Ha! Says:

    OMG, you’re 18 Hayden. Shut up. Celebrity doesn’t mean we actually care what you think? Maybe in a few years once you’ve been an adult for more than 10 seconds.

    who Says:

    celebrity really opens doors, who common 18 years old can speak with presidential candidates about issues concerning him/her?

    Matt Says:

    This chick is pathetic, fighting that hard to keep an old a$$ man.

    Jill Says:

    Reaalllly don’t care what she has to say.

    MMM Says:

    Really, she is starting to truly tick me off. You are going to pick a person to support based on their stance on your whale issue??? Plus, what a spoiled little brat, calling their offices and getting them to get you the information. Go out there and find out where they and you stand on the issues like the rest of us. Educate yourself, there is plenty of information out there.

    Shut up Hayden!

    What will she do when this old guy drop her. Then she will be quiet and hide that ugly face.
