Nothing but an average actress who needs to play in 20 kiddy-movies a year beacuse she wont be getting to the level where she can cash in 20 million per movie. After his career she knows, because he's a genuine champ he will stay in the picture with his charitable and humanitarian activities so she will too...standing by his side on a crate.  Anyone here hear the word Bandwagon ?! Bah!

That's just bizarre. The age, the height difference, the fact he gets paid to get punched in the grill and she gets paid for having a pretty grill. Just odd.

He's going to split her in half.

Well that just sucks!  I was hoping I could have met Hayden...I know if I did, we'd be married for at least a year.
