She's stunning, a former HERO (remember her from that NBC show?), turned Nashville country singer and star yet still has time to save the planet and the animals on it. We're talking about eco-friendly, green goddess Hayden Panettiere.
Through all of her campaigning and raising awareness with various issues involving saving and respecting the earth, her heart lies with our friends in the Ocean:
"The dolphins and whales in our ocean are a part of a larger eco-system that prevents the killing off of other marine life. By destroying these animals and not allowing our future generations to enjoy their beauty, we are causing our own selves damage. ...
These animals are being brutally and unnecessarily slaughtered—and who are we to say to they have less of a right to exist than we do." -- Hayden Panettiere
This chick has been seen saving the world in an array of ways since she was a teen, from saving ocean life campaigns, to red-carpet events for global awareness documentaries, to taking a stance against fur on the Hollywood runway. Bottom line: this girl has talent, brains, and a voice we love.
