Hayden Panettiere Can Finally Go Clubbing ... Legally

Julie Ryan Evans

Hayden PanettiereAfter a recent tiff with a bouncer who refused her admittance into a club because she was underage, Hayden Panettiere can now strut right by him. Today, the Heroes actress turns 21.

She was none too happy last week when the bouncer stopped her outside Hollywood club, Villa, and was used to getting her party on regardless of her age.

“Are you kidding me?” Hayden said, according to reports "I come here all the time. Why is this an issue NOW? “I turn 21 in a couple of weeks…so what the hell is your problem?”

Panettiere has been preparing for her birthday for weeks now, even getting a pre-birthday tattoo at Lollapalooza in Chicago a few weeks ago. No reports as to where she got it or what it says, but we can only hope it's spelled right this time.(Her other tattoo-- an Italian phrase-- has a mispelling in it. Yikes!)

No word on how the actress will celebrate her big night, but I bet there will be cocktails involved.

As for her first legal drink, a Beam Scream could be appropriate given her upcoming role in Scream 4.

Happy Birthday, Hayden!
