Hayden Panettiere Covers 'Self' March 2010

Hayden Panettiere Covers 'Self' March 2010

Hayden Panettiere is ready to hit the beach on the cover of Self magazine’s March 2010 issue.

Inside the issue, the 20-year-old Heroes hottie speaks about her true-life role in the documentary The Cove, where she joins a protest of whale and dolphin slaughter. Here’s what Hayden had to share:

On being a young celeb: “There’s an expectation for me to be the next Messed-Up Party Girl. But I just focus on living my life, being myself and doing what I love.”

On the beauty of exploring open waters: “You might get in water so deep that you hear a humpback whale singing, but you see absolutely nothing, just rays of light.”

On making a difference: “I left knowing I’m not going to let those dolphins die in vain. Their deaths will help show the world the big picture. I’ve also taken a lot of trips to D.C. and met with senators about the issue. I even met with Barack Obama, when he was campaigning. He said he grew up in Hawaii so dolphins and whales are very close to him. I knew I had two minutes to reel off what I wanted to get across. He was larger than live and so nice. Laws and politics—that’s where things change.”

    curvy and healthy I love this woman, saw the Cove last month and it was so moving it made me appreciate even more her passion about the cause of saving dolphins and sea creatures. Amazing work Hayden

  • Celia

    She doesn’t even look like that anymore.
    I always find myself wanting to dislike her, but I just can’t do it because I love how much of an animal rights activist she is. I really respect that.

  • ke$haluv

    OMG hayden is such a cutie, more pictures of her plz!!!

  • walmart ripped me off. losers

    She’s fantastic.

  • Lovethatjoker

  • Johanna

    She looks great, she’s in the new video of Joshua Radin and looks amazing as well, should go back to blonde it suits her.
    I really love her work as an animal rights activist.

  • lexy

    I think it’s too pink but she’s a beautiful and talented young woman! A breath of fresh air on this site that’s usually pimping a bunch of talentless trashy bimbos!

  • Halli

    Sooo 90′s!

  • Kate

    I like her! You can tell she’s really passionate about saving whales and dolphins and not just doing it for press.

  • Sean

    She is perfect

  • See Megan Faux b4 surgery

    sorry but she is just so unattractive.

  • ace11

    this girl is still developing..she isn’t even in her prime yet

  • Castle

    “Hottie”? She wishes. She is so overrated and annoying.

    I also find it funny she talks about accepting peoples/her own imperfections yet she has recently said to be revamping her entire appearance. What a sellout/fake.

  • m=

    she is the biggest party person in H-wood…everyone knows that..her handlers make sure that she “looks” pure…

  • Andy

    She has implants now.

  • James

    She looks so hot on that cover. Kudos to the Self Magazine folks for setting that up so nicely.

  • Cindylover1969

    She may have gotten red hair and maybe gone under the knife, but that doesn’t make her any less attractive. Anyway, it’s HER body, not yours.

  • Britt

    Hayden is pretty. My mom loves her too. Her and Vanessa are adorable!

  • Adam


  • gaeljet

    pretty but fake(boobs) and so

  • lexy

    OMG! So what if she’s changing her appearance?? If she’s the only one who dyed her hair you wouldn’t have all these hair dyes at your local Walmart!! Also, who’s to say she went under the knife and that’s not just Photoshop?? Even if she does go out and party – her handlers do a good job of keeping it on the down low b/c I NEVER see anything about her falling over drunk or anything like that in the press. However she’s young and most kids her age are out there partying and enjoying life. She works hard so if she wants to party – good for her!

  • vanessa zanessa is the best!!!


  • lakers fan in boston

    even when she is trying 2 promote something good i still find a way 2 hate her
    what a boring cover
    it looks really photoshopped as well
    she always tries 2 sound like she’s a nice person in an interview but i will always think she’s a bitzch

  • cougarsdatingsite

    I’m so glad she screws everything in sight!

  • lexy

  • Iris

  • Colleen Pasch
