Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia split

Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia
The age difference between Heroes co-stars Hayden Panettiere, 19, and Milo Ventimiglia, 31, has caught up with them. Hayden was reportedly seen kissing Jessie McCartney earlier this month, and it now seems the couple have split. This could make things awkward on the set of their TV show.

Heroes costars Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia have called it quits, Usmagazine.com has learned.

“It was a lifestyle conflict,” a source close to the couple tells Us, adding that the split happened within the last week. “They were in very different places.”

Adds the insider, “They are still on friendly terms. There are no hard feelings.”

The source tells Us that Panettiere, 19, “is young. She likes to go out in the Hollywood scene and that’s not his style.”

Ventimiglia, 31, “has been concentrating on work on his production company [Divide Pictures],” the source adds.

‘Different places’ is usually a line in break up talk, but this time I believe it. There’s no way a 31 year old man could be in the same mental place as a teenager.

There has been a consistent rumor that Milo wants to marry Hayden (they have been dating for a year, that’s practically a lifetime in Hollywood) but that she says she isn’t ready. Hayden presents herself as a mature, classy young actress, and hasn’t been pictured stumbling drunkenly out of clubs. Her image didn’t sustain any kind of damage even during her parents domestic altercation.

Milo in the past has dated Alexia Bledel, he played her romantic interest on Gilmore Girls, then left the show and they broke up at the same time, after 3 years of dating. The last outing I can find of Milo and Hayden is in early December where they were pictured together on the Heroes set.

    Finally! I hate Hayden Panettiere, little talentless twit. But I loooooove Milo – never knew what he saw in her. First Colin Farrell, now Milo Ventimiglia, this is great!

    *lol* funny how we delude ourselves that now we’ll be able to get those men, huh? But still, great going Milo!

    I too am glad they broke up. I thought it was wrong for him to go after her the MOMENT she was legal.. I doubt he *actually* waited and they kept the thing underwraps. Nevertheless, it always creeped me out to hear that their co-stars were so cool with a grown man in the 30s dating a teenagers. Along with bad storylines, this real life pair helped to cool me to the show…

  3. Dana Da Designated Hata says:

    Yeah, she is way to young for him. Even though Hollywood kids grow up faster than normal kids she is still not ready for a 31 year old man at the age of 19.

    I love Heroes…I hope this doesn’t run their ability to work together (even though I am sick of the damn Cheerleader)

    What a shame. They were so well suited. Hmm I wonder if they can both find partners with equally pretentious names?

  5. Annie says:

    Yea. It’s sick in two ways:

    First. What’s wrong with said 31 year old that he can’t get a WOMAN his own age.


    Second: What kind of frickin daddy issues do you have Hayden?

    With that said, my boyfriend once dated a 34 year old when he was 19. And when I say dated, I mean friends with benefits. For like 6 months. *Vom*

    I still make fun of him for it. :)

    Friendly correction: Alexis Bledel, not Alexia Bledel :) .

    I hope Milo and Alexis get back together! Or he finds someone really cool, anyway.

    *sigh* I loved them together. It’s so strange that people seem to have prejudices based on… what? A twelve year age difference? My husband and I are 21 years apart, and married for 11 years. She always seemed mature, and maybe thier break-up is a sign of her maturity (in knowing what is right for her) and not the fact that she is young.

    Hope who ever got jilted get over it soon. I personally would like to see Milo pair up with Kristen ^^

  9. Katie says:

    I think that whatever works for them is ok. If they were in love then its fine. I think its cool how they can still be mature about this and work together, and I think both of them are great people and I hope they find what they are looking for.
