Milo Ventimiglia Had Serious Crush on Hayden Panettiere

by at . Comments

The romance between Heroes stars Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia has been an open secret for months - in part because of their 12-year age gap.

"They were tired of avoiding questions and of all of the effort of keeping it secretive," a Panettiere source tells Us Weekly.

Hayden, 18, who plays Milo's niece on Heroes, was also worried about her reputation. "She didn't want people thinking she is a 'ho' because she jumped from one relationship into another," a source close to her said.

But Milo Ventimiglia, 30, had a crush on his co-star since she was dating Stephen Colletti of Laguna Beach fame. They broke up last summer.

Who can blame Milo Ventimiglia for his crush on this adorable star?

"He always had a crush, but really let her know the minute she broke up with Stephen," a source close to Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia said.

Since Panettiere still leaves with her mom and brother, it's a good thing, a source tells Us, that Ventimiglia has her family's approval.

"Milo is such a good guy, honest and sweet," says a source. Besides, says another source, "She is really like a 30-year-old."

We're not sure how that works, but you kids run with it!


Personally, I think they are adorable and they seem really happy. As far as Hollywood couples go, I hope they stay together and don't let petty things like the age gap and everything else get in between them. Everyone else is just jealous anyways. Hayden is a genuinely beautiful person, inside and out. She's smart, and mature, and active in many animal activist groups and charities. Personally, there couldn't be anyone better for Milo.


Yeah...age is not important when speak about love.i think they look fabulous as a couple.:x:x:x
wish them best


just leave the two alone. it's their own personal lives. just mind your own business. :p


omg hayden and milo make the cutest couple ever they should of had started dating like along time ago!!!!! age doesnt really matter!!!!
plus hayden is my favorite actress ever and milo is super hot!!1


Hayden and Milo's my fav actors in heroes and I could never have imagined that they were together! I think they're sooo awesome looking and hot together


how dare u be sick of her
hayden is a legend and she shud be able to date who she wants no matter the age difference
as long as they are happy who gives a sh!t if there happy thats all that matters


I agree. I am so sick of her anyway.


Personally I don't think Milo and Hayden should be a couple. I think Milo is too good for her. The twelve year age difference is a little ridiculous. How can you say an 18-year-old girl is like a 30-year-old.
