We've been hinting at this for months, and have been trying to take the high road, given the star's tender age. But who are we kidding. Hayden Panettiere is hot enough to stop a clock... such as the one on our home page counting down the days until she turns 18.

Just 21 more days, people. 21. More. Days.

The kick-ass cheerleader from NBC's sci-fi drama Heroes is the hot cover star of FHM's UK October issue. Yes, at the young age of 17, the sexiest girl on one of the world's biggest shows has entered many a nerd fantasy among fans across the world...

White Hot Hayden

Hayden Panettiere is officially legal next month. Phew.

As much as she plays the part of the "bad girl" at times and is aware of her own hotness, don't expect her to go all Lindsay Lohan on us as her star power rises.

No, when reading interviews, it's apparent that Hayden Panettiere is remarkably grounded and mature for her age, making her all the more appealing to celebrity news outlets such as this. Did we mention she's gorgeous?

According to a fan site devoted to the underage hotness that is Hayden Panettiere, we only have 42 days (41.5, actually) left until we can feel slightly less dirty about discussing her.

Specifically, the kinds of thoughts she conjures up while strutting around town in ludicrously hot red dresses, like the one she sports in the photo taken at right of her at Nickelodeon Studios.

She may not be able to carry a tune, but the petite 17-year-old Heroes actress dropped jaws in this tight-fitting outfit over the weekend, making us think she's on her way to bigger and better things.

Like Cinemax.

Anyway. When August 21 rolls around, the junior varsity Hollywood bad girl will be considered an adult, and will finally able to vote, buy cigarettes or join the military.

Oh, and have legal sex with Stephen Colletti. For that guy, 42 days has to feel like an eternity. Well, unless he's hit that already. Which he has, in all likelihood.

Come on. Guy two-timed Lauren Conrad with Kristin Cavallari for crying out loud. Clearly he knows a thing or two about sneakily getting some from hot teenagers.

For all of those fearing that Hyde has jumped the proverbial shark, well, this isn't about to dispel that theory.

The man best known as Danny Tanner partied it up in L.A. Sunday. Yes, Bob Saget was the biggest celeb at Hyde, according to TMZ's club spies.

At least the Olsen Twins are old enough to get sloshed with him now.

Meanwhile, underage hottie Hayden Panettiere was spotted outside her home after visiting Nickelodeon Studios to support her little brother, Jansen Panettiere, in his new TV movie, Last Day of Summer.

Only 42 more days until she's legal. Just saying.

Back east, Akon and Samantha Cole were spotted rocking out to Amy Winehouse tunes in the Hamptons at the pleasure palace Star Room.

Fortunately, Akon did not smack that (well, at least not in public). We're sure he tried his best to throw someone off stage. Danah Allyene was probably mad jealous.

While Akon looked on, lyricist extraordinaire L'il Jon entered the scene and entertained the crowd from the DJ booth, taking over the beats.

We can only imagine, having heard his collaborations with Usher about 10 million times, that this involved a lot of L'il Jon screaming "Okaaaaay" and "Yeahhh!"

Meanwhile, back in the city, she of the large booty, Kim Kardashian and himbo Wilmer Valderrama rocked the Estrada Entertainment party at Home.

Hey, when you're no longer with Mandy Moore, you might as well move on to an inferior model. That guy's bedpost must be enormous to accommodate all those notches.

She's Celine Dion, in fact, compared to the likes of Brooke Hogan. And certainly Ashlee Simpson and Britney Spears, who don't even sing in concert.

Let's put it this way. When Hayden Panettiere made her live singing debut at the Capitol Fourth concert, she more than held her own... and made many teen boys hold theirs.

Sorry. But seriously, she's halfway decent - and this isn't her day job!

If her rendition of "Try" (see video below) were up against the likes of this season's crop of American Idol aspirants, Hayden would lose to the elite contenders - Jordin Sparks, Blake Lewis and Melinda Doolittle - but she'd give everyone else a good run.

Here's Hayden Panettiere signing in D.C. on Wednesday, July 4 ...

What do you think? Is Hayden Panettiere worthy of a record contract? Or is her producer, J.R. Rotem, only working with her so he can ... well, you know.

Heroes' high school cheerleader, Claire Bennet, is already back on-set, but that doesn't mean actress Hayden Panettiere can't have some fun with a few favorite summer things.

Hayden Panettiere Goes Ho

Like bikinis! Pur-rrr-rrr!

The 17-year-old hottie-in-training was pumped up for her singing debut - "The Star-Spangled Banner" - at this year's A Capitol Fourth concert in Washington, D.C., and took the time to give People magazine the lowdown on her summer essentials...

Hayden Panettiere's favorite summer song:
I love listening to Journey. They've got some awesome songs like "Don't Stop Believing" ... It's just a feel good song. It's like you're at a party, and they play that song and everyone just goes nuts.

Hayden's beach must-have:

A bocce ball set. My friends and I like to make out play.

Bikini or a one-piece?

I'm a bikini girl. Can't have those tan lines! I love wearing bathing suits. They're comfortable. You always feel like you have to look good in clothes. I feel so much more comfortable with a bathing suit on because nothing's constricting in bad areas.

THG NOTE: Gulp. We believe her, having seen this bikini photo ...

Favorite read:
I'm usually reading scripts, but I always love Harry Potter. I'm a dork when it comes to that. Harry Potter just takes you into a completely different world.

Movie Hayden is most excited to see:
Bruce Willis' film, Live Free or Die Hard. I think it's really cool that they're bringing him back. It looks really fun.

THG NOTE: Hayden may be a tad biased by her friendship with Bruce's daughter, Rumer Willis. But we're psyched for the return of John McClane as well.

Must-see TV this summer:
I love Entourage. It's a fabulous portrayal of what this business is really like. You've got the executive producer Mark Wahlberg, who knows all about the business and the actors in it who do, too. So you can't go wrong.

Summer food of choice:
I like a lot of fruit. I love mangoes and papaya and pineapple.

Dream destination:
I would go to Fiji ... I'm dying to. I just read something in the magazine the other day that there are these underwater hotel rooms now in Fiji that are literally made out of glass. It would be my dream. It's like $15,000 a person to go.

Move over, Lindsay Lohan.

Britney Spears, you've got company.

There aren't too many wild-child, party-crazed chicks in Hollywood, really. At least among people with actual talent. From the looks of it, though, actress and 17-year-old babe in training Hayden Panettiere will not be developing into any kind of quiet type.

She's not even 18 yet (sorry, Stephen Colletti) but she's creating quite a stir, and if you're the betting sort, it seems a safe wager that wilder days are still to come.

In this collection of Hayden Panettiere photos, we've got dressed as a sexy cowgirl (yee-haw), as well as grabbing her own ass, wearing a bikini and body paint, and appearing in a, shall we say, provocative position with Heroes co-star Adrian Pasdar.

Yikes. While we shouldn't pencil her into our popular doggy style photo gallery just yet, this Hollywood hottie looks destined for bigger things.

Welcome to the club of Hollywood stars gone wild, Hayden Panettiere. We will be watching your career with the greatest of interest.

They're both rising stars in their respective crafts.

They're both sexy and stylish in their own way.

They both carry a lot of baggage - and we're not talking about Rumer Willis and Blake Fielder-Civil.

Truly, the similarities between actress Hayden Panettiere and singer Amy Winehouse are literally endless. But in this case, we're focusing on their favorite bags.

Every gal has her signature look - and their personal carrying case is a big part of it. In the case of Amy Winehouse, the "Rehab" singer may be ecentric, but her bag is classic luxury. And a could size to beat someone's ass with. The star totes her Bianca Large Satchel from Miami to N.Y. to London. See below.

Meanwhile, from L.A. to N.Y.C., Hayden Panettiere totes a gold-studded "Brynne" bag with her everywhere she goes. Now, that thing looks like it's too heavy for the petite one to carry, but if you've ever watched Heroes, you know you can't judge her power by her appearance.

Plus, she can always call boyfriend Stephen Colletti to help. He can lug that bag as he waits until August to legally bag that. You know what we're talkin' bout.

Celebrities. They're just like us. They hang out with their friends! Only in their case, those buddies are also celebrities. In our case, they're just celebrity gossip writers. Oh well.

Here's a look at some notable celebrity BFFs ...

Men (like Paul Sculfor) may come and go, but everyone knows that best friends are forever. Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox-Arquette have long been tight on and off the screen. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, meanwhile, are two low-key celebs, but have been spotted chilling together quite often recently.

Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton

Ever since they co-wrote and co-starred in Good Will Hunting, Boston natives Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have been inseparable. The same can't be said for socialites Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, but they were totally, like, best friends at one point - bonded by mutal love for hooking up with dozens of guys, being rich and partying a lot.

Jessica Simpson, CaCee Cobb

Growing up in Texas, Jessica Simpson and CaCee Cobb were good friends. As Jess made it big, she brought along CaCee as her personal assistant! The Hills' Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag were roommates and two of reality TV's closest gal pals... until the slimy Spencer Pratt burst on the scene and stole Heidi's soul. But it's not all sad, folks - at least Hayden Panettiere and Rumer Willis are hitting it off of late!

The abject suffering depicted in one Paris Hilton pussy picture after another is a frequent topic of discussion among the staff in The Hollywood Gossip newsroom.

Fortunately for Holly Madison and animal lovers across America and the world, not all critters are subjected to such extreme acts of unforgivable torture.

That said, we are happy to present a cute celebrity photo of a furry friend and a star who our staff members are much bigger fans of than the ho-tel heiress.

Below, Hayden Panettiere plays hero to a small pal from the Humane Society as they head down the "cat"-walk at Animal Fair's 8th Annual Paws for Style event Monday.

Yeah. We can't tell for sure if that's a cat or dog. But we can say with certainty that there's at least one sexy kitten in this pic! Purr!

The Heroes star is the magazine's cover girl for their travel issue. She's also the hero of Stephen Colletti's love life... even if he can't legally hit that. Yet. Just wait 'til August.

Get a driver.

Those were the sage words of Hayden Panettiere last month, when it was first learned that Paris Hilton would do time for her repeated disregard for DUI and other traffic laws.

Wladimir Klitschko Pic

Such simple advice, yet so profound. It's no surprise, then, that other night, the 17-year-old Panettiere had more choice words for the horrible HO-tel heiress / crybaby.

Well, sort of.

With Hilton back in the slammer after her brief release, the Heroes star hit the town last night and couldn't avoid the inevitable "What do you think about Paris?" question from reporters.

As Hayden Panettiere slipped into Parc under the radar last night with co-star Zachary Quinto, she avoided the barrage of paparazzi.

But on the way to her car, the paps found her and flashbulbs went flying.

As Hayden made her way around to the front of her SUV, she got the question about Stavros Niarchos' loser girlfriend - and simply giggled in response!

Yes. She is wise beyond her years. No word on whether Rumer Willis was with Hayden or what she thinks about the whole Paris Hilton situation.

However, we're guessing if she ever hung out with Paris, Bruce Willis would kill her.

On a side note, while Hayden can operate a motor vehicle at 17, there are some things she can't legally do until August. What are we talking about? Ask Stephen Colletti.
