Aww! Scream 4 starlet Hayden Panettiere grabbed lunch in Venice with some pals on Tuesday, and was delighted to pet a cute canine chained up outside the restaurant. So adorbs!
Panettiere, who played Amanda Knoc in Lifetime's Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy, tells USA Today about the TV movie:
- "I spent five weeks reading testimony, finding new information and discussing the case. I watched videos of her with her friends and listened to the way she spoke. But I didn't talk to her or her family. She did want to be with me at one point, but she has only two days a week to talk to her family and have visitors, and it didn't seem right to monopolize her time.
The audience can make up their own minds. Regardless of what happened, this young girl had dreams and aspirations. She wasn't a malicious girl. My job was to play her as innocent as I could."
