Hayden Panettiere Opens Up About Life After Postpartum Depression Treatment

Hayden Panettiere was in attendance at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday (January 17), and on the red carpet, she opened up about her battle with postpartum depression.

“It feels different for me because of things that I’ve gone through recently, over the last year,” the 26-year-old Nashville star told People about walking a red carpet after her treatment. “I’ve really gone, ‘You know what, I’ve been in this industry for so long, forget it!’ I’ve been hiding myself. Just putting out the smiling face, showing people this, and allowing that veil to come down — it’s like a weight off my shoulders.”

Hayden sought treatment for postpartum back in October and she just recently returned to the Nashville set.

    Her implants look terrible you always look better if you leave yourself alone.

  • jane

    is that what it is? i see a definite blackness/bruising along her chest.. maybe stretch marks?

  • Wendy

    I was thinking it looked like stretch marks too

  • Casey C

    most women have stretchmarks across their breasts, even before the ridiculous implants she seems to have chosen, plus even if she didn’t nurse they’d have gotten bigger. whatever it is, the dress was a terrible choice with those things bolted onto her chest! even on someone with smaller boobs that dress would have been a bad choice, but on her its dreadful!

  • Gina

    I don’t think it’s implants. Don’t women have bigger boobs during and a little bit after pregnancy? She’s probably nursing.

  • jh7058622

    No she definitely got a boob job, that were far too big for her fram i might add, then she got pregnant and they got even larger.

  • Daniel Bowman

    She looks wonderful. It great that she is talking about that depression so openly. Depression is devastating, painful, destructive, maddening, lonely, frustrating… I found that natural systems are the best when it comes to depression. I suffered from it a long time,
    and tried all kinds of remedies. I didn’t like the drugs much, since they sometimes made it worse. I recommend a system that I found most helpful,
    and it teaches 7 steps to healing from depression. Google lookingupstuff/depression to see for yourself

  • Dave Mills

    Man, that poor lady. She’s gotta go and smile and act like a twinkie meanwhile she’s feeling the complete opposite. I’ve been there.

  • Sassypants

    That’s not true, her breasts will have gone back to normal by now or gotten saggier and smaller. It’s unlikely she nursed since she was in a treatment center for postpartum depression.

  • Casey C

    Not true regarding the breasts shrinking. yes, many women find their breasts returning to roughly the size they were pre-baby, but certainly NOT all. I was a B before my baby, I went up to a DD and even after ceasing feeding, they only went back down to a D regardless of losing all pregnancy weight. every body is different. she clearly has implants and I don’t know how that affects the swell in size due to feeding/pregnancy, and how it affects them reducing in size, if it does at all. It used to but implant methods have improved. you also don’t know when she finished nursing. many mothers go to about 12months, some express or nurse after that time.
