Hayden Panettiere was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday to promote her latest movie, Scream 4 -- but the conversation somehow found its way to the diminutive actress' sex life with her considerably taller boyfriend, heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko.
According to E!, DeGeneres brought up the height difference (Klitschko is 6'6"; Panettiere is 5'2"), and Panettiere told a stunned Ellen that fans come up to her all the time and want to know, "Does it work?"
The former teen queen and Heroes star went on to tell Degeneres that despite fans' confusion about the, um, mechanics involved, she and Klitschko make due. "Yeah, it works. We find a way," she says. "Where there's a will, there's a way!"
"I know what you're talking about, but I'm in shock. People ask you that?" a stunned DeGeneres responded.
"They're very conservative people most of the time," Panettiere added. "They just have to know. Like have to know, 'I just have to ask you this question!'"
When DeGeneres called such behavior "crazy and rude," Panettiere insisted she's not offended by the rather unusual line of questioning. "I don't mind it. I find it amusing."
"Really?" Ellen replied. "Well then, how does it work?"
Hold that thought, Hayden! We're pretty sure we've already got TMI.
