Hayden Panettiere shows bikini body in Esquire photoshoot.
Hayden will be featured in the January issue of Esquire wearing a green and a pink bikini.
The 23-year-old actress played cheerleader Claire Bennet in Heroes. She now stars as a young country star named Juliette Barnes in Nashville.
She describes her new role as “the cold bitch of the century” in the interview with Esquire. She told the magazine that she apologized to Connie, who plays veteran performer Rayna Jaymes in the show, after their first scene together.
She added, “It’s fun. You get permission to be openly nasty and get away with it.”
Hayden just recently split with NFL star Scotty. She previously dated heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko.
