She’s always had a thing for older men, and the 20-year-old actress isn’t changing her ways!
Hayden Panettiere has confirmed the longstanding rumor that she is dating boxing’s WBO and IBF heavyweight champion of the world, Wladimir Klitschko.
After being spotted out in Los Angeles with Hard Rock Cafe heir Harry Morton in Los Angeles last week, she had to deny rumors that they had hooked up again, by coming forward with her relationship with Klitschko.
She explains; “I’ve never had an athlete as a boyfriend before, and it’s an exciting experience. I think it’s awesome that he’s so athletic, but I’m most fascinated with his intelligence. He’s unbelievably clever… Even though I’m small, I can dish it out too. But I have to admit, I feel really protected with such a strong man by my side. Now, whenever someone’s bugging me, I say: ‘Look out, my boyfriend is a boxer!'”
Panettiere was once linked to 32-year-old Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia. Klitschko is the top ranked number one heavyweight boxer in the world, who just scored a knockout victory this past weekend over Eddie Chambers. His record is 53-3, with 48 knockouts.
