She Has Been Open About Her Struggles Unlike Her Brother

Hayden Panettiere publicly expressed her opinions about her struggles to the public in a variety of interviews, unlike her late brother. Before, she claimed that her character in Nashville had evolved into a sort of solace. She remarked that themes like alcoholism and postpartum depression were ones she could identify with.

“My saving grace is that I couldn’t be messy while on set and working.” However, “things [off set] kept getting out of hand,” the Alpha and Omega actor continued. “And as I got older, the drugs and alcohol became something I almost couldn’t live without. I was in a cycle of self-destruction.”

On the other hand, a source mentioned that her brother, Jansen Panettiere also had previously experienced mental health issues and had spoken openly about it with his family.
