Hayden not so heroic

Hayden PanettiereHayden Panettiere might play a hero on TV but it seems she doesn’t act like one in real life. While attending Comic-Con for her hit TV show Heroes, Panettiere apparently would not give a panhandler change. Sources told Star Magazine when the homeless man asked her for change, the young actress reached into her purse and only had a twenty. Refusing to give the man the whole bill, she asked him if he could break it, and when he refused she said she would find him later.

    Save the cheerleader, save your change!
    What’s a $20 to these people?

    Who cares, not every one can give money to the poor. Even if you are rich, it dosent matter, plus it says she would find him later. It dosent say weather or not she went back to the guy. That’s not being heroic giving someone money, that’s being kind and generous.

    she should have gave the homeless man a bussiness card to get a job.

    I would have just gave him the whole bill…but oh well, I guess that was just her decision.

    Homeless people do not deserve handouts…I do not care how rich you are. They are only going to spend it on drugs and alcohol anyways.

    She’s probably spending it on drugs and alcohol as well!

    She could have at least ripped it and given him half! Cheapo!!

    I think that she is under no obligation to give handouts to the homeless, but she could have given him a signed copy of her CD or at least the single.

    Your stories are getting very weak here guys. Who cares? She has every right to not give a homeless guy money.
    The guy probably wasn’t even homeless. She was probably setup, so that the media (you guys) could write a stupid story like this to make her look bad.
    How about concentrating on HER ACTING. Which is why we watch her in the first place.
    Grow up Tribute.

    Just because a homeless person asks for money, doesent mean they are buying drugs and alchol. They could be buying food eith it ,or other items they require. Don’t jump to conclusions like that. It’s like your saying they all do that, your judgeing them all by what some do.

    spare change can go a long way, to help someone out. Not all homeless choose to be homeless!

    I live in Edmonton…and there are more than enough employment opportunities to go around…so yeah I am a little biased.
    I think Hayden, the little cooty patootie, did the right thing.

    But every where in the world is not like edmonton, there isent always a job oppertunity for everyone. Things happen that leave people homeless and jobless, not everyone living on the streets are the same.

    Why not just give the poor guy the twenty? That one kind gesture might give him some hope that his dreary life can change, that there are still people willing to give him a break. Whether or not he’s a junkie/alcoholic/just plain lazy, he is clearly having a rough time. Why not help him out?

    right on, Vicki. right on, Hank.
    asking the homeless guy to break your 20 for you? Why didn’t you ask him to put up his Mercedes as collateral in case he stiffed you on the change, Hayden?
