Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia are no longer ‘just’ good friends it appears. Last month (Nov. 15th) Ventimiglia had shrugged off romance reports, to People, insisting he and his co-star were just “close friends”. He said, “It’s only natural that people are going to couple us together.”
But at a pre-Christmas Water Grill party in Los Angeles, Ventimiglia toasted the actress telling co-stars he was in fact dating Panettiere. An eyewitness told In Touch Weekly magazine, “He called her his girlfriend and said that he loved her.” The couple spent the rest of the party romantically sitting together and holding hands.

Since cozying up at an Emmys party in September, Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere have dodged rumors that they are dating.
Two months later, the duo some call "Halo" are still close, hanging together at Wednesday's Race in the Fight Against Epilepsy fundraiser, in Calabasas, Calif. But could these Heroes be a couple?
When asked about the reports of romance, Ventimiglia, 30, chuckled then paused. After a few seconds, he answered, "She and I are close friends. It's only natural that people are going to couple us together."
The actor and Panettiere, 18, hung together outside the bash while awaiting their fellow Heroes costars. And although they spoke closely in a shadowy corner, they remained strictly hands-off. (Once inside, the two were ushered into a private VIP room.)
In September, Heroes costar James Kyson Lee, who plays Ando on the NBC series, told PEOPLE of the prospective pairing, "The rumor is not true. Let's just end it there."
Panettiere and Ventimiglia attended Wednesday's party to support costar Greg Grunberg, whose son Jake suffers from epilepsy.
Hmmm, I've always liked guys a little scruffy. What do you think?
GASPS* I know ladies that this is a touchy subject but if Milo WAS to get a new girlfriend, who would he look 100% better with than big head Hayden?
Let's see, are you Italian like our dear Milo or French like our archenemy Hayden? No specific reason, I just wanna know. :)
