Hayden Panettiere stars in 'Got Milk' campaign

Teenage actress Hayden Panettiere's fame is clearly on the rise, as the Heroes star has been accorded one of the celebrity world's highest accolades - as the latest milk-mustachioed face of the "Got Milk?" advertising campaign in the US.

The actress - who plays Claire Bennet in the hit series which is being shown on BBC2 - will appear in new print ads next month, which were shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Panettiere, who celebrated her 18th birthday last week, wears a red dress and the famous milk moustache in the commercials, which show her holding an exploding glass of milk, accompanied by the slogan: "You don't have to be a hero to feel invincible. That's why I drink milk."

She joins an elite list of celebrities including Britney Spears, David Beckham, and Beyonce who have fronted the campaign to encourage youngsters to drink three glasses of low-fat or fat-free milk a day.

The actress joked to US chatshow host David Letterman on his Late Show recently about reaching her milestone birthday: "I don't think much changes when you're 18 - maybe the way people treat you.

"But I think the only things I can do is buy cigarettes, porn and, if I get in trouble with the law, I'm kind of screwed."

As well as having a party on the beach, the young starlet also registered to vote.
