That really is sad...another Scream movie?

Wow, she's only 32?!

She was the only part of AVP Requiem that was any good.........

Yep. She was actually a teenager when she played a teenager on Heroes.

She looks mid-40s. Damn drugs. Hopefully she has better people around her now.

Funny... I don't remember her.

I do remember Kristen Hager though.
She has a lovely bottom...

I liked Heroes for the first season and a half, she was cute as a button.

I'm forty now, with a 12 pack a day drinking habit going back over a decade.  I think I've actually aged better, without a team of people to keep my pretty.  There must have been a LOT of pills.
 
2022-07-07 2:11:19 AM  
Good for her?
I guess she can be an ambassador now, but also she has nothing in common with most of us.

There's been a long-standing rumour that she was molested and "leant" to others for "use" when she was still under 18. Might be part of the trauma she said she had to unpack/work through.

She seems in a much healthier place, and I applaud her for knowing that her daughter was better off without her as a primary parent. PP Depression is also a special place in hell, and living through that with the other addiction issues - she's lucky she made it out the other side without some more severe consequences/suicide/death.

Panettiere says she was just 15 when someone on her team began to offer her "happy pills" before she walked the red carpets. "They were to make me peppy during interviews,"

JFC.
 
2022-07-07 7:44:32 AM  
Not to bash her, but I remember seeing her on Letterman when Heroes was a thing and she was a mess. I thought then that it was because she was still a teenager. Guess not.
 
2022-07-07 7:55:53 AM  
I'm glad she was able to get help. I wish our system allowed more people to get that level of help and not just the well-to-do.

Yeah, I was thinking she looked like someone in her mid-40s where we would be saying how good they still look. Part of it may be the hair.

It was a little bit of both, by the sound of it. The whole having to do the publicity thing and being the public face of a popular property is not something younger actors take into account when they land the gig.

Back when she was "hot', I had her in my deadpool. That she didn't make the 27 club is surprising

Forgiving her addict and abusive ex is not a way to surround yourself with better people.

She looks like a plastic surgery Stepford wife

That's fuckin' awesome, congrats! I never got into the opioids or weed or anything like that, but have been booze free for 2.5 years. Life is better with a clear head for sure.

And I was surprised that she is 32. I didn't think Heroes came out so long ago, and she still looks young.

Heroes was pretty good until they basically turned the two main characters into Superman vs. Bizarro.

I quit smoking cigarettes (never touched anything illegal) on 22 Feb 1996. I quit drinking on 30 December, 1998.
I met my wife in April of 96, and had I been a smoker, she'd not have dated me. 
After I quit drinking, I realized that I'd spent $20k on beer the two years I was stationed in Germany. I was drinking 9 liters of beer, 3-4 nights a week. 
I was lucky and not addicted to it, I just really loved getting hammered. 
I am never tempted to drink, but still would like to light up.
I hope you all are able to keep your sobriety going!! Each day is an accomplishment and I hope it gets easier and easier each day.

Scream (the latest one) and Scream 4 are good.  4 is one decision (at the end of the movie) away from being a brilliant film, but they weren't willing to make that commitment.

Thank you.

12 weeks in treatment (4 weeks inpatient, 8 weeks intensive out-patient)
Prozac for depression
12 step program
therapy.

BUT, none of it would have worked until I was ready.  I "tried" about 15 years ago, but I was not ready.

I thought the first three were a good, tight trilogy. The others weren't bad but I think it worked best as a trilogy. You can't make a horror movie that turns a profit without  sequel though.

Yikes, I heard via blind items she was passed around to casting couches and "parties" by her parents. Being on drugs and booze would make her easily manipulated. Then again, she may have wanted to be manipulated if she thought it was the normal way to "work".

I'm glad she sobered up, took a look around, and decided she didn't want to live that way anymore. Cheers and good luck.

bingethinker: Rwa2play: Wow, she's only 32?!

Yep. She was actually a teenager when she played a teenager on Heroes.


In all fairness, we're all conditioned to see teens played by 24-28 year old models -- not actual teenagers.

Also, the show was pretty much forgotten by its 3rd Season in the US as it got progressively less interesting and more convoluted (Sylar's a hero! No, a villain! No wait, HRG is good or bad this week? Let's stunt cast Michael Dorn for 3 minutes and then never see him again!). Heroes feels like a lifetime ago in pop culture. At least Masi Oka has kept busy since.

If Robert Downey Jr is to believed when he made an off hand remark mentioned how her mom use to pass he around Hollywood when she was younger I can believe why she got hooked on bills and booze.

I cringe when I see a link about any woman on Fark, b/c I know the gross comments about their looks & misogynistic assumptions will be plentiful, & that no matter how many I report nothing will be done to slow that down.
