Maybe it doesn’t “work” after all. Hayden Panettiere told People that she has split from her 35-year-old boxer boyfriend Vladimir Klitschko, blaming the fact that they live on different continents. “Even though we’ve decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends,” she told the magazine. “It’s not that easy to manage a relationship between two continents,” he added. “I have a lot of respect for Hayden as a person and as a friend, and I believe we’ll keep our friendship even after the separation.”
Ironically, their year-and-a-half long relationship reached its highest profile last month, when Heroes star Hayden admitted on Ellen that everyone wants to know how a 5’1″ actress has sex with a 6’6″ boxer. “I get the prudest people coming up to me and they’re like, ‘Does it work?’ Yeah, it works. We find a way…Where there is a will, there is a way!” Fair enough, but we still bet next time they’ll aim for lovers closer to their own height—who live closer to their zip code.
