She received two nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Series, Miniseries or Television Film, for her work on Nashville in 20.
She has one younger brother, fellow actor Jansen Panettiere. Actress Hayden Panettiere was spotted rooting for her boxer boyfriend, Wladimir Klitschko, along with his sister-in-law Natalia during his heavyweight world championship title match against Francesco Pianeta in Mannheim, Germany.And it seemed as though her support wasn't for nothin'—her man ended up walking away a winner.klitschkovspianeta," Klitschko's joint Twitter account with his brother, Vitali, posted.Panettiere appeared on Fox's Ally Mc Beal as the title character's daughter, played the daughter of a man transitioning to female in HBO Films' Normal, had a recurring guest role on Malcolm in the Middle and guest starred in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in two different roles.In 2004, Panettiere had her first starring role in the Disney Channel film Tiger Cruise.Although normally designers loan next season looks to their chosen stars who then have to hand them back to their stylist at the end of the night (hoping they haven't spilled red wine on them), Hayden actually purchased hers. As Tom Ford had already dressed Naomi Watts for the awards show, poor old Hayden had to buy her own dress by the designer.
Lucky she had a few thousand pounds just kicking around isn't it? It skims Hayden's slender frame beautifully and there's just a hint of leg with that split.
For drawing the attention of daytime viewers to the disease, and for improving national awareness, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society gave her its Special Recognition Award.
For her performance in Lifetime Television's 1999 TV movie If You Believe, she was nominated for the Young Artist Award for Young Actress Age Ten or Under in the category of Best Performance in a TV Movie or Pilot.
Panettiere has complained that her acting options are sometimes limited because "people look at [her] as either the popular cheerleader type or just the blonde".
In early 2007, Panettiere appeared on the MTV show, Punk'd.
She is known for her roles as cheerleader Claire Bennet on the NBC sci-fi series Heroes (2006–10), Juliette Barnes in the ABC/CMT musical-drama series Nashville (2012–present) and Kairi in the video game series Kingdom Hearts.
