Was Hayden Panettiere actually eating boogers at a Hollywood party? That would be yes.
Okay, they were booger-flavored Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans. But still….
Boogers were the "save the world" cheerleader’s candy-of-choice of all the sweet treats – mountains of chocolate coins, Blow Pops, Pixie Stix, Ring Pops, chocolate frogs, saltwater taffy, candy necklaces, jelly beans – served at Electronic Arts’ launch bash for the new "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" video game last week.
After popping some of Bertie’s boogers, she went for a pack of Fizzing Whizbees, but with heroic restraint, she put the popping candy down. Hayden, admittedly paid for her party appearance, sez she’s a big Harry fan. "I just got to play the game and it is fabulous–everything that you see in the movie you can do in the video game. I actually got to stupefy someone, which I found very exciting."
Her fellow "Heroes" Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Noah Caby and Zachary Quinto also tried their best with the game but no one could top Hayden’s spell-binding skills. Hayden was also stupefied about getting a new Wii system and a couple of copies of the Potter video game (hits stores on June 28) when she left the party.
Wonder if she grabbed some boogers for the road.
