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.”

    Some of you asked why does she care about whales instead of more important issues. Most of you answered your own questions: because she is young! Because she is young she has no experience/knowledge towards other issues. In addition she has had a very comfortable life so poverty and health insurance rates do not affect her at all.

    To lise: well I understand that she’s young but she has chosen to publicly state her political opinions and therefore I feel I have the right to comment, and yes even to ridicule. It’s good that she has opinions and doesn’t spend all her time running around in clubs but is that really the standard on which we should hold everyone against? If she’s gonna start talking politics then she should be able to take some questioning of her priorities. I’m only two years older than her so I don’t think being young is an excuse for not knowing a little more about what’s going on in the world. Look, she can be a whale activist all she wants I just think that statement showed a huge lack of maturity and knowledge on her part and if she indeed is influential to young girls then I hope they base their political decisions on a better basis than she does. There are bigger issues in the world, and indeed in this election.

    You go Hayden!! I agree with her on the whale issue. You have to start somewhere to get animals more rights and to be treated more humanely. I am glad she is into this political cause. What a big hearted person she is!!

    she is a lovely rich girl and she is very famous she is my best actor and she is so fit

    like racing stripes that is good aswell because she is in that and i love every movie she is in i really do wish that she gets to go in more movies but at the moment she is concentrating on heroes.

    i think west is a great actor in heroea and the sentances he comes out with are really nice towards claire and i really wish i could be in his spot because he got to kiss her and i really want to kiss her and be with her in a film or movie it would be great.
