Hayden Panettiere Has That Country Flair That Cotton Loves

Hayden Panettiere

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.

From WWD:

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 Engaged To A Much Older Much Taller Man

Hayden Panettiere, 23, maybe the most petite actress ever created, is engaged to super tall boxer Wladimir Klitschko, 37. From Us Weekly:

“Very few people know, and she isn’t wearing her ring publicly yet,” adds the friend of the duo, who first parted ways in May 2011 after two years of dating.

Since getting back together, the actress, 23, and the athlete, 37, have refused to confirm their relationship. (Despite multiple PDA-packed outings — including a cuddly March 24 courtside appearance at a Miami Heat game — Panettiere said they were “just good buddies” in mid-January).

Privately, however, the 5-foot-2 knockout and the 6-foot-6 heavyweight champ are eager to legalize their match. Says the source, “Looks like a summer wedding!”

So yep, looks like they’re back on and will be in for a lifetime (or handful of months) of head-scratching, how-exactly-do-they-do-it sex. No but seriously, how??

BTW did anyone else love the Amanda Knox Lifetime movie, starring Ms. Panettiere as Amanda Knox? So good.

Love It or Leave It: Holy Hot Hayden (Panettiere)

So, we don’t generally talk about Hayden Panettiere around here, partially because Heroes is no more, and partially because we’re just not into sex with giants anymore (and apparently, neither is she), but that photo up there really gives us pause and makes us think of Hayden’s status as a Hollywood staple. I mean, you’re totally right when you say that she’s totally not, but will you just look at how adorably hot she is?

Let’s talk about it for a second—that hair and that little peek of cleavage and the cutesy fashion sense that she’s got going on? How did she ever figure out how to deal with excess beltage (i.e., when you have a belt that you just can’t bear to part with—or you’re borrowing someone else’s belt—that’s just way too big and you have this gigantic flap hanging from your midsection that looks like a withered third arm)? Can we just go ahead and crown Hayden here “Hottie of the Day”? Because WOW. Girlfriend is seriously smoking.

Hayden Panettiere Was Approached By a Nude Irishman at the EMAs

Oh, I also forgot to mention in the previous post – the super-cute Hayden Panettiere was visually assaulted by a nude streaker (and really, is there any other kind?) who was, admittedly, pretty hot. And that accent, woo. I’m a girl that really gets off on accents – all kinds of accents, really, except for Boston accents (though back-country New England accents are awesome) and New York accents (sorry!), and this guy was off the charts.

Anyway. The video is kind of NSFW if your workplace frowns upon quick, blurry photos of decent penis and completely fine male ass, but pretty much OK for everywhere else.


Who’d You Rather: Hayden Panettiere v. Michelle Trachtenberg

I know it’s supposed to be rude and stuff to compare two women or men against one another, and it’s probably contributes to a lot of self-esteem issues in our world today, but you know what? THIS IS A SNARKY GOSSIP BLOG. This is the kind of stuff we do. Also? It’s Friday. If you don’t like Hayden Panettiere or Michelle Trachtenberg, and can’t even come close to fathoming what they’d look like in your bed next to you, holding your penis instead of those stupid shoes, then mosey on to the LOLCatz website, where you can rank the hotness of cats or whatever and destroy their sense of self-worth instead.

Hayden and Michelle – two equally-hot ladies in their own rights, with two totally different looks.

Who would it be?

Giant Sex No More: Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko Snap It Off

After two years of figuring out how to fit a square peg in a round hole, Hayden Panettiere and her big-assed boxer boyfriend have called it quits. On the split, Hayden says:

“Even though we’ve decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends,” says the Scream 4 actress, 21.


However, Hayden (only 21, MAHGOD) apparently has a thing for much older dudes (Klit is 35), so she’ll be sorry to see that her timing in this breakup was off just slightly – a few weeks earlier and she could have been the one moving into Sean Penn’s Malibu love nest.

What over-aged dude is suitable for Hayden’s tastes in your opinion?

Hayden Panettiere Sings Now and She Made a Twelve Dollar Music Video

First Hayden Panettiere ruined Scre4m for me with that totally ridiculous haircut that no high school student in 2011 would ever rock, and now she’s ruined the new animated feature Hoodwinked Too by lending her voice to the soundtrack and making this cheap looking music video. The track’s called, “I Can Do It Alone,” and from the looks of the video above, she did.

Yo’kay, maybe I came in a little hot there. Her voice is better than some of the actresses we’ve seen try their hand at singing out of nowhere, but it’s the embarrassingly low-quality music video that has me really upset. I don’t need high-production value to be happy, but I could have made this video in iMovie in about two hours. Did they blow their video budget on autotune and hair extensions or something? I mean, it’s offensively bad.

But still, not the worst thing I’ve ever heard.
