Hayden Panettiere is Just Like Us! Except for the Whole Celebrity Thing.

I recently interviewed Hayden Panettiere, who was in town to celebrate the opening of Belk at the Galleria. I was unsure of what to expect. How would she stack up against her current role as the occasional-diva country singer Juliette Barnes on Nashville? But from the moment she walked into the room, in a Trina Turk dress and stilettos, she was all smiles and jokes. The interview started off with an unexpected compliment—she spotted my florescent pink Cambridge Satchel Company bag and gushed about how she loves the hue. By the end of the interview, I felt like I was chatting with a good friend (with whom I share a love of Cards Against Humanity, Shel Silverstein, and Italy). Read on to get all the details on my newest girl crush (and soon, yours too).
