Hayden Panettiere doesn’t particularly emanate straw chewin’, banjo playin’ vibes, but she plays a country singer in Nashville and that’s good enough for Cotton! They’ve cast her in their new ‘Fabric Of Our Lives’ ad campaign, where she’ll give a country rendition of the company’s theme. Well… that’s special.
The new campaign has a budget of around $20 million, according to a Cotton Inc. spokesman. The commercials featuring Panettiere in various scenes — choosing an outfit in her walk-in closet, having fun at a nightclub, shopping at a shoe store, walking her dog — will begin airing as 15- and 30-second spots on TV and select Internet outlets beginning Monday.
“For this commercial we wanted a celebrity with an all-American, girl-next-door quality,” said Ric Hendee, senior vice president of consumer marketing for Cotton Inc. “Hayden had the look and the country cross-over sound we were looking for.”
“The commercial celebrates American style and American originals like country music, cotton denim and, of course, U.S. cotton growers, who are the number-one exporters of cotton to the global textile industry,” Hendee said.
I’ve always thought it was a bit bizarre that cotton – a fabric, for God’s sake – promotes itself as a business. I get that cotton is an industry like many other things, but it’s always struck me as slightly bizarre, for some reason. Also, the fact that they are effectively saying that the white, largely confederate flag bearing part of America is their target market is a bit weird, but whatever. America, right? Go USA! Go cotton! I love t-shirts! (Too much?)
Hayden’s cute and making the most of that TV money, so I say go for it, girl.
Hayden Panettiere was seen kissing her ex-boyfriend, boxer Wladimir Klitschko, at the Miami Heat game in Florida on Sunday. Are the two of them back together?
It’s la la times for fans eager to get their hands on the original score of Heroes. La-La Land Records will release the original score album on April 7, 2009 via their website www.lalalandrecords.com and in stores April 21. The original score was composed by Wendy and Lisa ( Soul Food, Crossing Jordan). La-La Land Records have licensed the release rights from NBC Universal Television, DVD, Music and Consumer Products Group.
The “Heroes” original score album features ten powerful tracks, including the “Heroes” title and the memorable “Fire & Regeneration” theme. Each of the additional tracks is built around one of the heroes, and carries the instrumentals and rhythms that are particular to that character – such as the heroic, strong cello sounds for “Peter Petrelli” (Milo Ventimiglia) and the dreamy instrumentals of the fire and regeneration cue for Hayden who plays “Claire Bennet”.
Hayden Panettiere can be seen in action on the full screen on July 10 with her role as a cheerleader in ‘ I Love You Beth Cooper’. Hayden plays the role of a hot cheerleader who is the object of a nerdy valedictorian’s obsesson.
Hayden is reported to have given the geeky boy an eyeful as she opens up her towel in the girls’ changing room for in the upcoming flick. In another scene, the 19 year old shows off her busom as she takes off her graduation gown.
Here are some images from the upcoming film. Hayden is reported to have For those of you, who would like to catch a glimpse of the Heroes hottie in high def, you can get up and close to Hayden here.
Hayden Panettiere (Heroes) may be looking to explore various avenues beyond acting. Buzz is that she is pitching a TV college drama around town that focuses on a female athlete who plays tennis.
However Panettiere might well be striking gold here as it has been a while since one of the broadcast networks aired a college-based drama that was worth watching (we miss you, Felicity, but not you, The Bedford Diaries).
Panettiere, who has made a successful return for another season of Heroes in the fall, will be seen next on the big-screens in the movie I Love You, Beth Cooper this summer.
If one wonders why Hayden is the most sought after teen of her generation, her photos for InStyle should lay all doubts to rest. The 19- year old looks stunning as ever as she graces the April issue of Instyle Magazine’s UK edition.
The Heroes hottie, looked to cool things off as she is seen pictured here lying in a tub after a hot day’s work. It’s been a bit of a rough stretch for Hayden Panettiere. Nevertheless, she seems to be bouncing back strong with some beautiful photos for the mag.
She seems to be on track to set some things straight with this photo shoot, to get her image back to normal: that of a smoking hot 19-year-old girl who adores marine life.
Hayden Panettiere and ex- boyfriend Milo Ventimiglia will join other Heroes cast and crew in creating artwork for a silent auction to benefit Austism Speaks. The auction is scheduled to be held on April 19 at the Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles. Hayden Panettiere has always been a big supporter for the cause of austism treatment and its awareness, having also helped raise money for charities working towards it.
The Office ‘s Rainn Wilson will host the event, which will also feature musical performances from Band From TV, a celebrity troupe that includes Heroes stars Greg Grunberg on drums and Adrian Pasdar on guitar. The one-night only, star-studded concert event will be held Sunday, April 19 at 5 p.m. at the Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles.
Last year Hayden was involved in raising funds at a charity event for the cause of spreading awareness of autism and also to raise money for families that cannot afford autism treatment. Autism Speaks is USA’s largest autism science and advocacy organization.
Hayden Panettierre is adamant on the number four when it comes to kids. The Heroes star, however doesn’t want her children to follow suit, insisting that she wants to keep them away from showbiz. Speaking to Style magazine the 19-year old claimed that she would eagerly want to settle down and have a large family. She said:
“I always said I want four kids – I love kids, I would love to be a mum and to have a family,” she explains, “for Italians, it’s the most important thing you can have.”
However Hayden may have to wait before she starts her family. Last month she broke up with her 31-year-old Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia, with sources citing the 12-year age gap as a factor. She is also determined on not letting her children follow in her footsteps. She explained:
“I think you have to be a pretty strong person to enter the industry that young and not be affected by it. I was lucky, but I’d never want my kids to be subject to that much criticism at such a young age.”
“There’s a lot of criticism. It blows my mind that people want to find flaws and things to pick at. Growing up with the pressure to be thin and the fact that TV adds at least 5lbs… it was tough.”
Hayden Panettiere‘s message to the world is to consider whales and dolphins as if they were canaries. The Heroes, star is rallying support for her online petition on socialvibe.com as she launched her ‘Save The Whales Again’ campaign recently. She said:
“Whales and dolphins are like the canaries in the coal mines because they let you know when things are bad.”
Apparently the 19 year-old, also wants to spread awareness regarding the toxic nature of the meat of these sea creatures, after research has shown that whale and dolphin meat contain high amounts of Mercury and other contaminates making it unsafe for human consumption. She added:
“And it’s not just these animals we are trying to protect but the people consuming them. These people are unaware of how toxic it is to eat these animals because their governments are not telling them.”
“These animals are at the top of the food chain and they are eating all these fish that have all this mercury and toxins inside them. People are eating this meat and it’s causing them mental issues, physical ailments and children to be born with physical ailments.”
It was a bright sunrise at the Sunrise Morning Show, but it was not a perfect morning start for Hayden Panettiere. She was all ready for her appearance for the early morning show in Sydney, but soon found that a vital component was missing from her cleavage mic.
The Heroes star however, rarely had to use her superhero moves as she cleverly manoeuvered the wireless mic under her clothes and was done in minutes. Hayden, sporting a silver spaghetti strap top and dark wash jeans, seems to have mastered the casual-yet sexy look as she fielded questions from the show’s hosts.
The 19 year old, ‘I Love You Beth Cooper’ star had earlier claimed that she has the same insecurities as other girls of her age. She said:
“I’m getting there, but I think I have the same insecurities as most girls. I’ve never had really skinny arms, so whenever I do photo shoots, it becomes a lot about the angle that work with my arms.”
