Hayden Panettiere still fighting with ex Milo Ventimiglia on Heroes set

Hayden Panettiere, who claims that she’s not like the rest of us and thinks that the public wants to “destroy” celebrities, is continuing to give her ex boyfriend, Milo Ventimiglia, a hard time on the set of their show Heroes. Hayden and Milo split way back in February, and there were reports in March that she was trying to get him kicked off the show and refused to be around him on set. That’s understandable a month after a breakup, but it’s been nearly 10 months and Hayden still hasn’t found a way to exist peacefully at work with her ex. Her fat paycheck and Heroes’ low ratings don’t seem to be motivating her either. The National Enquirer reports that Milo is trying to be nice to Hayden on set but that she’s not having it and is giving him dirty looks, treating him like crap and talking smack about him to the producers:

“Haydens… never been dumped before, and when they resumed shooting the new season, she began taking out her hostilities on Milo,” said the insider.

“She’s been bad-mouthing Milo behind the scenes to the producers. She gripes about doing scenes with him and flashes him dirty looks when they are not shooting…

“Milo hoped they could maintain a professional relationship…”

When Milo tried to smooth things over with Hayden, “she acted like she didn’t know what he was talking about,” the source said.

“Hayden told Milo ‘Will you please get over yourself! Your ego is getting in the way of my acting!’”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, December 7, 2009]

I believe this story about a girl who once explained that she gives fans a “half smile” as a “survival skill.” She’s full of herself and she can’t handle it that she got dumped. How lame for Hayden that she’s letting it affect her work and is still holding on to a bitter grudge after nearly a year.

    Sack her stupid @$$. Her character has already reached all the girl on girl co-ed lows. She’s got no where else to go but cancellation.

  2. AlaskaJoey says:

    I hate both of them equally, but I hate her more right now for being so childish. Together they are my least favorite characters on the show. But at least Milo is a good actor.

  3. Praise St. Angie! says:

    it’s gotta be her age.

    he’s around 30? so, a break up, whether initiated by him or by her, would be something he has experience in. while not “easy” to get over it, it’s probably easier for HIM because he’s more mature. He knows that it’s possible to be both co-workers and friends after a relationship.

    she’s still pretty young, and grew up “on set” of a lot of productions, so she probably is just acting like you would in high school; as in, she doesn’t know any better because she doesn’t have the experience. the MO? be bitchy, shoot him dirty looks, try to make him uncomfortable so he’ll leave the area and YOU won’t have to be uncomfortable.

    classic high school behavior.

  4. Neelyo says:

    Wow, that hairstyle adds about 20 years to her. She looks like Meredith Viera.

  5. Squirtle says:

    Oh I agree completely Constance! So ridiculous that they are turning her character into a bi-curious college girl gone wild they must really be hard up for some viewers but it’s working against them in my case because I’m starting to lose interest really fast…

  6. e says:

    This is what happens when you date a child Milo.

  7. e says:

    Neelyo I was thinking the same thing! It almost looks like a wig, especially where the bangs start. The color looks like something in Ash Blond that I could buy at RiteAid. Too bad her old lady hair doesn’t influence her maturity level.

  8. Fire says:

    That should teach him to never date a costar, especially one 12 years his junior. She’s a spoiled brat whose hair looks like a reeaally bad wig.

  9. Praise St. Angie! says:

    interesting…the FIRST thing I thought when I saw that pic was “why is she wearing a wig?”

    I’m betting it’s a hairpiece and not a full on wig, but the part where the bangs meet the rest of the hair looks weird. no scalp showing, which is the tell-tale sign of a wig.

    recall, people, that this is a girl who was hanging out with Paris Hilton when she (Hayden) was about 15 or 16. so, she did have a great role model there…

    She’s my least favorite character on the show. Heroes was only great for the first season. They focused on a few people and you could really get into the storyline. Every season they keep adding a ton of useless characters that just drags out the storyline. I keep watching because I hope it’ll get better but it never does. This season I find the deaf woman who sees colors as a pretty bad filler. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is their last season.

    I think the show would be better if they stopped focusing on her but unfortunately her character can’t die.

  11. elina says:

    Why do they insist on dressing her like a 40 year old lady…isn’t she like 19?

  12. Mercy says:

    She looks like she’s wearing a wig.

  13. Constance says:

    surely those bangs are at least weave. they look… you know.

  14. MDD says:

    Hayden not pretty on the outside or inside.. speaking of a sense of entitlement… your fifteen minutes are almost up Hayden…

  15. princess pea says:

    His character is more important to the show at this point than hers is… she should remember that the fate of the world isn’t riding on the cheerleader anymore and suck it up.

  16. Alex says:

    lol – like we didn’t see this coming! Hate her character so much…

  17. Jag says:

    I used to like her so much, but hearing stories like these, and things from fans who have met her, my opinion has changed. That said, I still applaud her for trying to save the dolphins. But she needs to grow up quickly, or she’s going to have people not wanting to work with her anymore.

  18. rose says:

    aw well if she’s never been in a breakup before and she has to see the guy every day, i think she deserves a break. i’m sure she’ll look back on her behaviour and be embarrassed. but imagine your first boyfriend dumping you, the whole world knows it and you have to go to work with him every day. tough one to just get over

  19. lilred says:

    Time for her to put her big girl panties on an deal with it. This is not high school, It matters not that she is only 19. She needs to learn that it’s not all about her.

  20. diva says:

    For a minute I thought that was a picture of her 40 year old mother. Hayden must have the worst glam squad in Hollywood to cake on that much ill colored makeup and the colorist has dyed her hair “ash” blonde which almost looks grey and looks hideous against her skintone. Then her stylist always dresses her in matronly dresses. And besides that, she can’t act and doesn’t even belong in Hollywood.

  21. serena says:

    oh my god. Poor Milo -__- he have to deal with a idiotic brat like Hayde and be badmouthed too. That’s too much, I hope the producers kick HER out, she’s not professional, she’s been too critical and cannot do a perfect job instead of milo.

  22. Darlene says:

    please people, of course that’s a wig. It’s a bad wig, at that.

  23. Ivo says:

    You go girl : Will you please get over yourself! Your ego is getting in the way of my acting!’”

    Hayden is the best :)

  24. Rae says:

    A) That’s why you don’t date people you have to work with. B) Milo, that’s what you get for dating a child.

  25. SolitaryAngel says:

    I hate her character and I hope somehow her character is removed ASAP (maybe buried 100 feet under by Samuel!). I love Heroes and I don’t like the deaf girl either but Sylar and Peter make it worth the effort to sit through the whole “Midget & the Sasquatch” segments. The girl who likes Hayden looks so horrible now–she used to be at least semi–cute on Californication! Sure, Milo made a mistake but his character is noble, hot, and enjoyably talented. I can’t believe how much I actually cried this last episode! I knew it was coming but still…..

    Bye-bye Hayden! (*half-smile as I wave*)

  26. loldongs says:

    Back in the old days this wouldn’t have dragged on so long.

    He’d have told her twice.

    And that would’ve been enough.

  27. louq says:

    LOL anyone who believes this is a complete idiot. The same ridiculous stories were spread months ago and a whole bunch of people on the show talked about how completely false they were.

    Funny how all the cast list Hayden as one of their favourite castmates and constantly talk about how amazing she is in interviews, when she’s such a massive diva on set, isn’t it?

  28. Kate O'Donovan says:

    i know that this complet rubbish that is being said and i think that it’s not fair on Hayden to make out that she isn’t able to be near ex Milo .

  29. Bob says:

    First of all, this is complete and utter rubbish written by some pathetic low-life. This is not Hayden at all. Hayden’s one of the sweetest and most down-to-earth people you will ever meet and the people who believe this crap are even more stupid to believe something written by a sad group of people who make money off writing lies like these for a living. We have all had break-ups, all most likely tough to deal with and at hard times like these you certainly don’t need the media all over you. Just because Hayden and Milo broke-up doesn’t mean that one of them is a bad person at all and of course the media will try everything to demonise them! Open your eyes, you can’t believe everything you read, unless you know Hayden or Milo personally, you will never know what happened and seeing as though the media love to blow things way out of proportion I would definitely NOT believe a word of this! Only believe information of the sort FIRST-HAND, and this article is certainly nowhere near first-hand, more like 50th-hand! Also, Hayden is following Milo on Twitter – she is surely maintaining a friendship with each of her former Heroes costars. Don’t be so quick to judge!
