Hayden Panettiere and Steve Jones at opposite ends of the yacht, France
Hayden Panettiere, star of NBC TV show Heroes, sported a new accessory this week on the French Riviera: British television presenter Steve Jones. The two were spotted taking a break from the grueling task of attending the 2009 Cannes Film Festival on a yacht. This was only one day after the pair was seen on a boat belonging to Elton John’s partner, David Furnish.
About a week ago, Hayden, 19, and Steve, 32, were seen once again with Furnish having dinner in Mayfair at the Nobu Berkeley.
Jones is a Welsh TV presenter for Channel 4′s T4 lineup, and is also a model and an actor, having appeared in a small role in the movie Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging. He is currently presenting Guiness World Records Smashed, a new program on Sky1. Jones has a reputation as a womanizer, and has been linked romantically with Halle Berry, Pamela Anderson, and Angelina Jolie.
Panettiere recently broke up with her co-star, 31-year-old Milo Ventimiglia.
The rumored pair soaked up the sunshine of the French Riviera, with Hayden in a green bikini, and later they were seen in Cannes itself, enjoying the party atmosphere that envelopes the city during the annual film festival.
