Hayden Panettiere Is Soo Over College

Save the cheerleader, skip out on college?

Unlike other actresses like Emma Watson and Natalie Portman who headed to college after their big break as teen stars, Heroes star Hayden Panettiere isn’t planning on hitting the books anytime soon…or ever.

The 20-year-old says that being on the hit sci-fi TV show has given her all the smarts she needs:

“I always wanted to go to college (but) the show happened to start in a pretty pivotal period, when you have thoughts of going to college. It was just such a success and it is what I love to do. I would love to take some classes that I really enjoy, but I think college is a learning experience for yourself as a person and (it’s about) being on your own for the first time.”
