As someone who's worked a lot of red carpets, if this story is true, I take great offense to it.
The newly single Hayden Panettiere hit up a red carpet in Hawaii this weekend for a fundraiser benefiting the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific Foundation. You'd think that she'd be extra nice because the event was for a good cause. Apparently Hayden and I don't think alike.
According to Us Magazine, when Hayden first stepped on the carpet, she yelled, "Back up!" at the photographers. First of all, that's rude, and second of all, if they were really in her face, I'm sure she had a publicist with her who could have done her dirty work.
After the photo debacle, Hayden quickly walked past reporters. When one reporter touched Hayden's shoulder and asked, "May we talk with you, Hayden?" she yelled, "Don't you ever touch me!"
Hayden then asked her red carpet handler (aka a publicist), "Oh, am I supposed to do interviews?" She followed that up by saying to a bunch of reporters, "You all make my life miserable."
What the heck would have sparked such a mean streak?
