Hayden Panettiere shows off her fit bikini physique in a sexy Malibu beach photoshoot ahead of her career comeback after a health battle
HAYDEN Panettiere gave fans a glimpse of her flawless figure in a sexy bikini photoshoot ahead of her big career comeback.
The star stunned in a black, white and beige swimsuit as she posed on a beach in Malibu, California.
Hayden, 33, posed for a series of photos on the scenic sandy shoreline.
She was rocking a nude one-piece suit as she stood in front of a wall of jagged rock and had her hair tied back in a messy style.
She was also seen posing in front of a small rock formation with waves crashing behind.
She wore a white bikini with a knitted coverup over it.
The piece hung over one shoulder and her blonde hair hung to one side in a loose braid, with shorter pieces blowing in the breeze.
Hayden gave the camera a shy smile in one photo with this look and a sultry, serious face in another.
Other photos showed off her sporty black bikini bottoms and a cropped sweatshirt.
The star’s toned abs were on display for much of the shoot.

In July 2022, Hayden opened up about her battle with addiction for the first time.
During an interview with PEOPLE, she recalled her rise to fame on Heroes.
While fans loved her character Claire Bennett, off-screen Hayden battled some dark demons.
She revealed in the interview that her addiction began with what she called “happiness pills,” claiming that she was first offered them before appearing on the red carpet when she was just 15 years old.
“They were supposed to cheer me up for interviews,” she recalls.
“I had no idea this was not appropriate or what door would open for me when it came to my addiction.”
Hayden continued to work as her addiction grew and extended to alcohol and opioids.
She said: “My salvation is that I couldn’t be messy on set and at work.
“But things kept getting out of control [off set]. And as I got older, drugs and alcohol became something I almost couldn’t live without.”
Hayden switched from Heroes and landed a starring role on the show Nashville.
She told PEOPLE she saw something of herself in her character, who, just like in 2014, was suffering from postpartum depression.
The actress admitted, “Those were really tough years.”
Hayden added, “I could identify with a lot of those storylines like alcoholism and postpartum depression.
She stayed sober throughout her pregnancy but dove back into her addiction after giving birth.
The star shared, “There was only that gray color in my life.”
Hayden told PEOPLE: “I was on top of the world and I ruined it.
“I would think I’d hit rock bottom, but then a trap door opens.”
Eventually, doctors warned her that her liver “would fail.”
At that point, she decided it was time to try rehab.
Hayden said of her recovery, “It wasn’t easy, and there were a lot of ups and downs.”
BACK & BETTER
The actress is making a big comeback after taking the time to focus on herself.
She will return to the Scream franchise, reprising her role from Scream 4 as Kirby Reed.
The film is scheduled to open in March and will feature many of the original stars.
Neve Campbell has opted not to return over a pay dispute, according to the New York Post.
However, others are back and better than ever.
Hayden has signed, as has Courteney Cox, and is reprising her role as Gale Weathers.
Jenna Ortega will also play.
