Falling for your fictional love interest is common in Hollywood, and sometimes it seems impossible for two celebs to lock lips and not end up together in real life. Heroes hotties Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli) and Hayden Panettiere (Claire “save the cheerleader” Bennet) didn’t have the advantage of onscreen make-out scenes, but rumors are flying about a love match nonetheless!
Both Hayden and Milo have denied the rumors, but persistent paparazzi have caught them looking awfully cozy recently. They certainly have their reasons to hide – Milo is 30 years old, and Hayden is only months past her 18th birthday. Plus, it’s a little odd to be snogging with the guy who plays your uncle on TV! Sometimes forbidden love is that much sweeter, though, and it would appear that these two have a bonafide thing going on.
Milo recently added fuel to the fire by purchasing an unconventional present as a belated birthday gift. He gave Hayden a signature robin’s egg blue box, containing a ring from Tiffany & Co! In the 11-5-07 issue of In Touch Weekly, the magazine reported that “the ring, called Somerset Heart, features a woven band and a heart, and according to an insider, is inscribed, “Sweet like Hayden.”
The 18k gold ring from Tiffany &; Co is priced at $1,950 – likely just a drop in the bucket for stars of the hottest new show of 2007. In Touch Weekly recommends a faux gold mesh ring from Emitations.com, which costs a mere $25! Our version might not be quite as “sweet” as the one that Milo gave Hayden, but it is made for those of us without a superhero’s budget. As for the suspected couple? Judging by the picture in the magazine article, they can’t keep their eyes off each-other!
