Odd Couple No More: Hayden Panettiere, Wladimir Klitschko Have Split Up

She must have seen his clumsy exploits with that soccer ball. Total turn-off, I reckon.

People has just broken the news that diminutive sexy starlet Hayden Panettiere and her gigantic beau, heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko, have officially split up after two years of dating, thus putting an end to the most head-scratchingest couple this side of Felix Unger and Oscar Madison. The reason? Distance.

Said the two former lovahs (from People, via The Big Lead):

“Even though we’ve decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends,” says the Scream 4 actress, 21.

“We had a great time together, but it’s not that easy to manage a relationship between two continents,” he says. “I have a lot of respect for Hayden as a person and as a friend, and I believe we’ll keep our friendship even after the separation.”

And here I thought these two, despite all the pitfalls which can befall a celebrity couple, were going to make it work. Well, I guess Hayden can move on from fielding awkward questions about her and Klitschko’s sex life to answering queries regarding what it’s like to date a dashing, debonair and dreamy sports blogger!

What? It could happen. Did I neglect to mention I just got a haircut. And it’s a pretty nice haircut. Yeah.
