Damn Terez, she's a shorty...

Hayden Panettiere’s relationship with her much taller boxer beau Wladimir Klitschko still has legs. Although the Heroes star had been seen out with ex-boyfriend Harry Morton, she traveled all the way to Düsseldorf, Germany to watch Wladimir score a knockout victory in the World Heavyweight Championships on Saturday. It was the first time she had been ringside for one of his bouts, having only seen him win previously in YouTube clips. “I’ve never had an athlete as a boyfriend before, and it’s an exciting experience,” Hayden told Germany’s Bild newspaper. “I think it’s awesome that he’s so athletic, but I’m most fascinated with his intelligence. He’s unbelievably clever.” As for their height different — she’s 5’1”; he’s 6’6” — she says it doesn’t mean a thing. “Even though I’m small, I can dish it out too,” she said. “But I have to admit, I feel really protected with such a strong man by my side. Now, whenever someone’s bugging me, I say: ‘Look out, my boyfriend is a boxer!’” — Star Magazine

It’s the tale as old as time of the beauty and the beast..Good for Wladimir. -TO
