Nashville star Hayden Panettiere has had an incredible career over the past 2 decades. Getting her start at an early age in various hit movies and TV shows, she's got a lot more acting experience than most under her belt.

But do you know everything about the famous actress and country star? Check out these 5 facts that you might not have known about Hayden Panettiere!


One of her tattoo's is misspelled (on purpose)

Hayden Panettiere has a tattoo in Italian that says "vivere senza rimipianti" which in English translates to "live without regrets." However, the phrase itself is played as a joke with the word "regret" being spelled with an extra "i".


Her mom was an actress

Acting runs in the family! Panettiere's mom is a famous soap opera actress, Lesley Vogel. She co-starred with Bryan Cranston on Loving for over a decade.


She's a prominent animal rights activist

Many celebrities donate and voice their concerns about animal rights, but Panettiere takes it one step further by taking action in her activism. She is a spokeswoman for the Whaleman Foundation, which works to rescue Whales and other marine life from hunting and pollution. She's also starred and made a documentary, The Cove, which covered dolphin hunting in Japan.


She's done a lot of voice acting work

Along with acting on television, Panettiere has been voice acting since the beginning of her career. One of her first roles was as Dot on the hit '90s Disney movie A Bugs Life. Since then she's focused her voice work primarily on video games where she's been the voice of Kairi in the hit Disney game franchise Kingdom Hearts.


She started acting when she was 11 months old

Panettiere will most likely go down in history for having one of the longest-running acting careers of her time. Just one month shy of being one year old, Panettiere starred in a Playskool commercial. She primarily got her acting start as a child in various advertisements and has appeared in over 50 commercials.
