HEROES star Hayden Panettiere and boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko have called it quits. In a statement, the 21-year-old actress says, “While we decided to split, we feel great sympathy and respect for each other and will surely stay close friends.” Klitschko says the relationship became strained because the two live on seperate continents. The 35-year-old boxer lives in Hamburg, Germany where he is training for his July 2nd heavyweight championship fight, while Panettiere lives in the US. The two had been together about 18 months and were last seen together publicly at the Tribeca Film Festival last month. The pair were attending a screening of the documentary, “Klitschko”, the story of Wladimir and his brother, Vitali, also a heavyweight boxer.
