HAYDEN Panettiere says she was tired of being a blonde so decided to dye her hair red. The Heroes star - who recently showed off her fiery new locks - says she changed her hair color because I could and she fancied a bit of variation. I was tired of being a blonde and being... you get stuck in one thing and known for one thing and as a cheerleader or whatever that image, she said. Its fun to change things up, and I feel I dont have to overcompensate as much personality-wise when I have red hair as I do with blonde hair. Hayden recently revealed that feels awkward going out on the town with her male friends in case they are mistaken for her boyfriend. I cant stand next to anyone of the opposite sex without being linked to them or dating them. It is so frustrating, she said last year. Apparently I cant have any friends. Its absurd. And when they do the body language analysing, it really gets to me. SS
