Hayden Panettiere Is "Just Friends" with Mark Sanchez...Phew!

It seemed like a romance might be brewing between Scream 4 actress Hayden Panettiere, 21 and Mexican New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, 24 after the two were spotted on sharing informal lunch at In-n-Out burger with a group of friends.

Just two weeks after she broke up with her boyfriend, heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko, Panettiere was photographed outside the iconic California burger joint in Laguna Hills, California smiling and talking with Sanchez. Sanchez was reportedly spotted pulling a full court press on the Heroes alum at a star-studded pre-Oscars bash back in February at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont. “The flirting was mutual,” a witness snitched back then.

But now sources are telling People, "They're not dating at all. They're really just friends."

Our reaction has absolutely nothing to do with our serious crush on Sanchez, but thank GOD!
