Hayden Panettiere stopped off at a newsstand after her morning workout in LA yesterday. While we've been waiting to see how our favorite shows like Heroes will be affected by the writers' strike, Hayden talked to Ellen about how the show has affected her personal life. This included her recent decision to travel to Japan and try to save dolphins with an activist group. She said, "[The show] is about being a hero. And you know, it's kinda rubbed off on me. I don't think if I was as recognizable in the public eye that it would have made as much of an impact." From there, Hayden got into the heart-wrenching details of trying to save the dolphins — watch the video after the jump.
