Hayden Panettiere has been banned from rock climbing by 'Heroes' producers because they are terrified she will injure herself
Hayden Panettiere has been banned from rock climbing by 'Heroes' producers.
The 19-year-old actress - who stars as indestructible cheerleader Claire Bennet in the hit US TV show - was thrilled when she took up the sport because it helped her keep in shape. However, the programme's bosses are terrified their lead actress will injure herself so have asked her to ditch her new hobby.
A source said: "The bosses told Hayden they love her keeping fit but don't want her rock climbing is too dangerous. Hayden was really cross and told them it's not like climbing real rocks because there are pads at the bottom to soften falls.
"But producers refused to listen to her and told her that she must abide by their rules."
It was recently revealed daredevil Hayden was upset she wasn't given enough stunts to perform in 'Heroes'.
She said: "I dived out of a window at the end of the first season and I was desperate to do it again. In the end I bugged everyone enough for them to let me do it. I love doing stunts and jumping through a window is not a stunt I'm unfamiliar with. It's a lot of fun."
