Hayden Panettiere and her beau Scotty McKnight have called it quits on their relationship.
The 23-year-old actress and the American football player were together for over a year.
Us Weekly reports that Hayden and Scotty ended their romance amicably.
Apparently the pairís personalities clashed and distance proved to drive a wedge between them.
Hayden spoke to the publication in 2011 about why she enjoyed being in a relationship with Scotty at the time.
"I've always been that girl who has a lot of dude friends," she laughed.
"I'm into sports, so Scotty and I have a lot in common.
"See, I date two athletes and then people assume I only like athletes, but if I dated all actors, people wouldn't say anything. But I like it. It's been a really cool thing because they're in similar circles, where they understand the schedule, the work ethic, the social aspect, but they're not exactly in your industry, so it works out well."
