Since cozying up and practically pawing each other at an Emmy Awards party back in September, Heroes stars Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere, a.k.a. Halo, have been the subject of rumors regarding the nature of their relationship.
Two months later, the duo is still close, and was seen hanging out together again at Wednesday's Race in the Fight Against Epilepsy fundraiser, in Calabasas, Calif. But are these two the Heroes of each other's love lives?
When asked about the reports of romance, Milo Ventimiglia, 30, laughed and then paused. After a few seconds, he answered, "Hayden and I are very close friends. It's only natural that people are going to couple us together."
Halo in action earlier this fall. They make a cute couple!
Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere, 18, hung together outside the bash while awaiting their fellow Heroes costars. And while they spoke closely in a shadowy corner, they remained strictly hands-off. But for how long!?!?!
Once inside, the two were quickly ushered into a private VIP room. They are so getting it on, who are they kidding!? Enough with the secrecy, peeps! So what if Hayden rolls over and sees Milo Ventimiglia shirtless every morning?
Masi Oka and James Kyson Lee, who play Hiro and Ando on the NBC series, have both chimed in on the prospective pairing in recent weeks, saying rumors aren't true and that Milo and Hayden are just friends. Lies.
In any case, they were getting together for a very good cause. Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia attended Wednesday's party to support a Heroes co-star, Greg Grunberg, whose son Jake suffers from epilepsy.
