"It's always awkward, no matter if it's a boy, a girl or whatever. It's just an awkward thing to kiss somebody in front of other people...You don't practice. That's like sexual harassment, I think." Actress Madeline Zima on her same sex kiss with Heroes co-star Hayden Panettiere.

Hayden lives in fear a fan of the hit show will confuse fiction and reality and try to kill her. In the show, Panettiere plays a cheerleader with superpowers that make her indestructible, but the actress is keen to assure fans she's easily hurt in real life.
