Multitasking mishap! Hayden Panettiere recently tried to juggle too many tasks and got caught ... with her pants down. During a Nov. 27 appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the 24-year-old "Nashville" actress confessed she got a bikini wax while talking on the phone with one of the show's male producers for her pre-interview.
"I was multitasking. I was getting ready to go. My assistant just had a baby so ... this was multitasking on different level," Panettiere explained. "I was on the phone, he said, 'How's the show?' I said, 'It's great, it's amazing,'" before breaking out into a scream. "'You really like playing your character [Juliette Barnes]?' I love her so much," Panettiere replied before screaming more into the phone.
The actress then decided to surrender and focus on one task at a time. "I said, finally, 'I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I have to be honest with you, I'm getting a bikini wax right now and I thought I can do this but I can't. Can you call me back in 10 minutes?' He's like, 'I've heard a lot of things before, but that's a first.'"
Panettiere heard a first when she and her fiance, Wladimir Klitschko, met five years ago. "I said, 'You're huge.' He said, 'You're tiny,'" the 5-foot actress recalled of her exchange with the 6-foot-6 Ukrainian boxer.
"That's God telling us we're too far on either side of the spectrum," Panettiere joked. "He needs to make normal people."
Host Ellen DeGeneres joked that the actress and her husband-to-be will make average-height children. "He's got bowlegs; I've got knock knees; so they're going to have straight legs," Panettiere said. "They'll be normal height."
In addition to their height difference, Panettiere also shared that she and her Eastern European hunk, 37, have very different views when it comes to planning their wedding. "He's very confused about our traditions," the New York native explained. "What is this honeymoon?' I said, 'It's when you go on a vacation afterwards.' Or you can't see the bride in her dress before [the wedding.] 'Why? Why not, it's dress.'"
But there's one wedding tradition Panettiere doesn't mind that Klitschko doesn't know. "He doesn't know the woman's side of the family is supposed to pay for the wedding," she joked. "Shh, we don't need him to know that!"
