Their on-screen chemistry in Nashville is undeniable, and now, an insider tells Star that Hayden Panettiere and Jay Hernandez have also taken their steamy romance off-screen. Despite the fact that Jay is married and Hayden is reportedly engaged to Wladimir Klitschko, our source says the duo openly flaunt their feelings for one another on-set.
“After filming, they would be very flirty and touchy-feely with each other,” the insider reveals. “They held hands, and one of them almost always had their arm around the other. Hayden never let Jay out of her sight.”
Hayden’s own relationship status, not to mention Jay’s, put her off from pursuing anything in the past, but our source says that her new party-girl lifestyle contributed to the change of heart.
