Hayden Panettiere: Twerking Won't Save the Environment!

Hayden Panettiere: Twerking Won't Save the Environment!

Hayden Panettiere noshes on the new Burger King Satisfries as she heads to her car on Monday afternoon (October 21) in Los Angeles.

Over the weekend, the 24-year-old actress attended the 2013 Environmental Media Awards, where she was honored with the Futures Award, which recognizes younger entertainers for their potential to be environmental activists.

“I mean, the fact that I’m 5’2″ and my boyfriend’s 6’6″ is not going to help the environment,” Hayden said during her acceptance speech (via Variety). “It’s not. And twerking is not going to save the environment. I think it speeds it up.”

FYI: Hayden is wearing UGG Australia Jena boots.

    Wtf? Her comments regarding environmental issues make no sense whatsoever. She sounds so dumb!!!! And speeds up what?? God, what is our world coming too?

  • Jane

    I hope she is misquoted because if not, she is really dumb. No wonder there are stereotypes about blondes.

  • Sarah.

    I think her point is that people should be more worried or concerned about the environment instead of her relationship or about twerking. I like that about her!

  • alex


    it sounds like you and jessica are the dumb ones.
    she is obviously joking and being sarcastic.

  • lg

    She si missqoted. she said that we all have to fight global warming and that the things in the tabloids and on twitter like her relationship to Wladimir and somthing like twerking won’t solve global warming and that it would speed it up. She said that as joke, but it wasn’t really funny so she had to urge the audience to laugh.

  • Me.Phillippe (Spanish)

    She was joking, she said in the sense That people get more interest and more boom to something as stupid as the twerking and not Gives it to the things That really matter.

    The twerking not going to save the world neither going to solve Global warming, and not going to save the environment. And she joked about it.

    I love Hayden and I love everything she does for the animals. :)

    Hey Hayden, hmm, maybe check your math. Sure, Jake Gyllenhaal also disses twerking, but that is only one other opinion. Because odds are you didn’t see the elevator video of Joey King schooling James Franco on twerking. Perhaps that production value simply wasn’t high enough, to attract your attention, such as if they had used the colossal cinematographic talent they had on “Oz the Great and Powerful” together:

    Hayden, did you happen to catch the post for James Franco: ‘Actors Anonymous’ Promo on ‘Kimmel’? :

  • marq

    Hayden, perhaps the King/Franco twerking video would have impressed you more if it had higher production value such as if they had even used Grayson Austin and crew from “This Is The End”, (which ironically, was devoid of twerking and who knows, just may have otherwise avoided the Apocalypse):

  • seriously!

    I’m always amaze on how dumb some people of this generation are .. Panettiere has always been know to support the environment and other worthwhile cause way before the success of Heroes or Nashville . So obviously some people miss the point she was trying to make , and tha’s a shame so instead they choose to make asinine comments , and they have the gull to call her dumb ..??? seriously … !!!

    is she Burger Kings new spokesperson? “oh don’t mind me just joyously laughing while eating fries w/ the logo pointed directly at the cameras”

  • anna

    these photos are so obviously staged.
