It’s time for some of that Hayden Panettiere gist y’all… we know, we know, that was a weak attempt at a country accent, but in honor of the star’s stellar acting in the former ABC TV series Nashville, we decided to try anyway. As much as we would love to gush at all her accomplishments, it’s time to check out everything from Hayden Panettiere’s height to her shoe size.
Hayden Panettiere’s Height
You don’t need 3D glasses or glasses at all for that matter to figure out that the star is on the short side, Hayden is just one of those petite stars in Hollywood and she wears her ‘small’ just right. So how gloriously short do you reckon she is? We won’t let you guess too much, the star stands ‘short’ at 5 feet and 1 inch.
That makes her the same height as celebrities like Lady Gaga, Christina Ricci, and Zoe Kravitz. You would be surprised at how many 5’1′ ers we have out there. For real, people like Karrueche Tran and America Ferrera also share Hayden Panettiere’s height.
Do you want to know something cool about Hayden Panettiere’s height? It was actually the conversation starter when she met her fiance, Wladimir Klitschko. She told Ellen on the Ellen DeGeneres show, ‘ I’m small, but he’s large, that’s how we met. I said, ‘You’re huge.’ He said, ‘You’re tiny.’
Who knew height difference could be the beginning of a lifelong relationship? Hayden is convinced that the two of them are going to make ‘normal people’ between them. She also told Ellen, ‘Yeah, he’s got bowlegs. I’ve got knocked knees. They’re going to have straight legs. They’ll be normal height.’
Let’s hope it works out that way for her, and that’s all we have on Hayden Panettiere’s height.
Hayden Panettiere’s Weight
For a petite person, it would be unwise to go overboard with weight, and Hayden has this ground covered. The star currently weighs 53 kilograms, she has an athletic build and maintains a healthy lifestyle. On the topic of her body constantly being scrutinized, the star had some insightful words to stay.
‘ There is a lot of pressure that comes with it. But there’s also the pressure to be a good role model for women and have a normal, healthy body but I love being my height and size, and representing a normal girl and a different body type.’
She was not always this confident about her body though, Hayden struggled with body dysmorphia as a teenager. She grew up in the spotlight and we all know that the media can be cruelly critical, well a young Hayden was shocked when she opened a magazine to find the word ‘cellulite’ scrawled across her 16-year-old legs.
She told Women’s Health Magazine, ‘ I was mortified. It gave me such body dysmorphia for so long, but I remember reminding myself that beauty is an opinion, not a fact, and it has always made me feel better.’
For those of you that do not know what body dysmorphia is, Mayo clinic has a straightforward description right here, ‘ Body dysmorphic disorder is a type of chronic mental illness in which you can’t stop thinking about a flaw with your appearance. Treatment of body dysmorphic disorder may include medication and cognitive behavioral therapy.’
On to more recent news, when the star was pregnant with her first child she packed on 40 pounds of weight, but hard work coupled with a good diet enabled her to shed all that weight. Since then she has not hesitated to show off her amazing post-baby body.
