'Tired of Being a Blonde' Hayden Panettiere Goes Red

'Heroes' star Hayden Panettiere (photosHayden Panettiere photos) has ditched her trademark blonde locks for a new look.

The 21-year-old actress tells 'Us Weekly' that she thought it was about time for a change.

"I was tired of being a blonde and being... you get stuck in one thing and known for one thing and as a cheerleader or whatever that image," explains Hayden.

"It's fun to change things up, and I feel I don't have to overcompensate as much personality-wise when I have red hair as I do with blonde hair."

"I'm typically a very fiery person anyway, but I just feel like cute and blonde and little is just so one category and one thing and changing my hair color, I feel like I don't have to overcompensate so much for the fact that I don't like being called cute or anything like that -- especially being all 5-foot-2 of me."

Hayden Panettiere also says she doesn't really care if people thinks she only goes after older guys.

She is currently cozying up to 33-year-old boxer Wladimir Klitschko after splitting from 32-year-old Milo Ventimiglia.

"It just happens to be the people that I'm drawn to," she says. "And you go, 'How old are you?' And then it's like 'Typical!' It's just a number and it's just on a birth certificate and whoever it may be, older, younger, blonde, brunette."
