Hayden Panettiere: ‘I’m Feisty, Edgy’

Friday, August 7, 2009

Hayden PanettiereHayden Panettiere isn’t as innocent as she first seems — she’s actually rather “feisty”.

The actress, 19, insists her personality doesn’t reflect the way she looks.

“I wouldn’t call myself a dark soul, but I’m feisty and I can be very edgy,” she said. “Being my size and having blonde hair, with a sweet, innocent-looking face is interesting because that’s not who I am.

“I’d never describe myself as innocent or sweet — those are two words I really would not use to describe myself, ever.”

“I think I’m very much judged on my age,” she added. “I’ll be in conversations with people and they’ll ask me how old I am. I’ll cringe and then answer, and you can see that their whole demeanour changes.

“It becomes more of a pat on the head, like: ‘Awww, she’s so mature for her age’.”

    I always question the maturity of a 19-year-old who likes to think of herself as mature. (It’s implied in her answer that she thinks she’s mature for her age.)

    No wonder she goes for men in their 30s. Obviously boys her age aren’t mature enough for her to try to develop a relationship with.

    I just find her insufferable, not at all mature, edgy or even *feisty* when I think feisty, I think of old ladies waving their walking sticks at rude deliverymen.
    Maybe “incorrigible” would work better for Hayden…
