No matter if his girlfriend, Hayden Panettiere, is not with him in Australia — Milo Ventimiglia will be just as happy to snuggle up to a koala in her absence! LOL! He is in OZ with his Heroes co-star Masi Oka to promote their hit TV show, and they are trying to fit in some sight-seeing on their whirlwind two-day visit. Of course, a visit to Australia is never complete without getting up close and personal with its famous animals. Milo Ventimiglia shared,
“Masi wants to hug a wombat but I’d love to hold a koala. They sleep 22 hours a day, eat eucalyptus leaves and just hang out. I want to spend some time with that guy.”
Heroes fans met Milo and Masi at JB Hi-FI in The Galeries Victoria, on George Street, Sydney, where they signed DVDs last September 2. Hayden Panettiere was back in the US, promoting Heroes in MTV’s TRL and The Late Show with David Letterman.
