You might remember the two separate occasions earlier this year when Gwyneth Paltrow told Ellen DeGeneres all about how much hair she has down there. I’m pretty sure a siren went off the moment the exchange took place and everyone in the world looked up from what they were doing and felt a disturbance in the Force. Because Ellen has an invisible celebrity confession vacuum on hand during every interview she conducts, it was only a matter of time before she sucked a pubic hair story out of another unsuspecting star. It finally happened when Hayden Panettiere sat down in the dreaded red chair and contracted a case of the TMIs.
Obviously Hayden spends a lot of the interview gushing about her fiance Wladimir Klitschko and their notable height difference. Apparently when they first met, she explains, “I said ‘You’re huge,’ he said, ‘You’re tiny.’” She also adorably imitates his accent when quoting him. But I’m not here to talk about that. I’m here to talk about the story Hayden tells before all this engagement talk. The story about getting a bikini wax while on the phone with one of Ellen’s producers.
The producer was calling to conduct a pre-interview and find out what was up in Hayden’s life besides being engaged to someone a foot-and-a-half taller than her. Hayden thought she’d be able to multitask while getting her pubic hair ripped out, but apparently it didn’t work out so well. Hayden proceeds to recreate the phone conversation, complete with very convincing sounds of anguish that should have just culminated in “Ahhh Kelly Clarkson!” and been done with it. Afterward you can see in Ellen’s eyes how maniacally pleased with herself she is that she got another celebrity to talk about this controversial subject. Let’s just give her all the Emmys, okay?
