It was only yesterday that she was in the Supernova Pop Culture Expo in Australia, lets add this to the article.
There's a film starring her that isn't on her filmography. All I have is the name of one character (Jo) and four scenes cut from very different parts of the film. Near as I can tell, Hayden plays a girl with a sheltered background and low social status who meets an older fellow in a bar and goes on a roadtrip with him. He is turned on by her and she reciprocates, most likely because it's the first time someone has found her attractive. They're about to have sex, but he decides to withdraw.
The clip does not give the name of Hayden's character or the name of the of the male actor's character, and I do not recognize him, or the actress who plays "Jo." Does anyone know this movie?
- Every girlfriend should dress like that; there should be a law.
- That top is visible here, The Architect (film), as you've indicated.
- Joe is Walton Goggins and his IMDb photo is funnier.

You can hear her pronounce her own name on the Scream 4 commentary track, and it's not what we have.
She does not articulate 2 final syllables; she treats the 'i' as a semi-vowel.
Considering how much trouble this one seems to present, whatever WP settles on really needs to be cited properly.

Minor correction to an Archives 1 statement
In the "Italian herritage" [sic] section, 22.214.171.124 (talk) posted on 07:51, 8 November 2010 that:
That is entirely possible [the misspelling of her surname in the USA]--and likely--if her family immigrated during any periods of massive immigration in our history. Surnames were constantly misspelled by immigration workers. Panettiere is an understandable permutation of Panettieri.
That US customs agents altered the names of immigrants at ports of entry is a popular genealogical myth, easily dismissed with a small amount of Internet searching. Sorry, folks, the immigrants created any name changes themselves, either before or after arriving in the USA.

- There is even a Wikipedia article about this myth, called "Ellis Island Special".
- There are many more creditable sources to find on the Internet.
Ms Panettiere first came to my attention when she appeared in Malcolm in the Middle. I have not seen her in any of her subsequent projects. Now, I understand about using wigs and hairstyling as a way to define a character, so I wonder if the cascade of curls that she wore on that TV show was her own hair? If so, was it the way she was born or was it styled that way for her character?
