'I was really naked. I had these little sticky petals on my boobs, but that was about it,' the 'Heroes' beauty recalls a sexy scene she shot for Chris Columbus' comedy 'I Love You, Beth Cooper'.
"I Love You, Beth Cooper" won't only test Hayden Panettiere's acting skills in a comedy movie, but also see her showing some skins. Playing the most popular girl in school Beth Cooper, the Claire Bennet of NBC's series "Heroes" confesses that she really is naked in the scene where she drops her towel in a locker room as she tries to impress geeky Denis Cooverman.
"I was really naked," the 19-year-old starlet gushes about her revealing scene when talking to E! Online's Marc Malkin. "I had these little sticky petals on my boobs, but that was about it. My dad calls me such an exhibitionist. He always says, 'God, even when you were little, you were such an exhibitionist!'"
Talking about the nudity issue deeper, Panettiere states that she won't take all her clothes off in front of the camera for now. "I'm cool with my body, and I'm cool running around undressed and all that stuff, but there are just certain things that not everyone needs to know, that you need to keep somehow private and personal to you," she says. "But you never know, you never know. I could be 30 years old and just be like, 'Screw it - I want to take it all off. I better take a picture of this baby before it all goes.' "
"I Love You, Beth Cooper" is a comic film about the misadventures of a geeky high school valedictorian, Denis Cooverman, after declaring his love to Beth Cooper during the graduation speech. Pairing up Paul Rust and Hayden Panettiere as the two leading characters, it is directed by the "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" helmer, Chris Columbus. The comedy movie heads to U.S. theaters on July 10.
