PEOPLE confirms that after two years of dating, Hayden Panettiere and Ukrainian heavyweight boxing champion Wladmir Klitschko are going their separate ways. They were together for two years? It seems like just yesterday she was dating her Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia.
"Even though we've decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends," said the 21-year-old actress, who has a thing for older men, since Klitschko is 35 and Ventimiglia was a few years her senior. Klitschko is also the reigning IBF, IBO and WBO heavyweight world champion, pop culture watchers.
Both said that the long distance nature of the relationship was the reason for the split. "We had a great time together, but it's not that easy to manage a relationship between two continents," Klitschko said. "I have a lot of respect for Hayden as a person and as a friend, and I believe we'll keep our friendship even after the separation."
Who should Hayden Panettiere date next? I think she should date Hayden Christensen so they can be Hayden and Hayden.
