"I don't have a model's body," US mag quoted the 18-year-old Heroes star as admitting in the April issue of Cosmopolitan. "But I'm not one of those crazy girls who thinks that they're fat. I'm okay with what I have. I can rock this body, you know," she added. The reason the actress, who is also a whale rights enthusiast, is so down to earth, is because according to her, she avoids clubbing.
"I think people look at me as just another one of those girls who"s going to screw up, like, 'She's going to get into drugs, and she"s going to get into parties,'" Panettiere said. "I have an occasional glass of champagne when I'm celebrating something, but generally, I don't drink. I'm a pizza-and-a-movie girl," she stated. The same rule applies when it comes to dating, as Panettiere, who's currently dating 30-year-old co-star Milo Ventimiglia, wants a man equally level-headed.
"I need somebody who is very secure," she said. "In this business, I'm constantly standing next to gorgeous people. My job is to make out with [attractive] men. Like, hello, who wouldn"t be completely threatened by that?" she stated. "But, at the end of the day, you have to realize that it's a job," she added.
