Panettiere speaks out on Sanchez

New York Jets fan?  Yes.

Dating the star QB?  No.

Actress Hayden Panettiere on Thursday again denied she is dating Jets QB Mark Sanchez.

“I swear I’m not dating him at all. Honestly. I’m a huge Jets fan and became very good friends with him and his buddies,” Panettiere told Us Weekly. “There’s genuinely, absolutely nothing going on. I’ve always been that girl who has a lot of dude friends.

“I’m into sports so we have a lot in common, but no, definitely 100 (percent) not dating.”

“It’s too much energy most of the time to keep it hidden. So when I say we’re just friends, I mean it!” Panettiere told Us Weekly. “Time will tell if I’m lying, but I’m 100 (percent) not! He’s a great dude and he’s a great football player and he’s (a Jets) player, which I love.”

Panettiere, 21, recently broke it off with boxer Wladimir Klitschko, and she and Sanchez, 24, have been seen out in public quite a few times recently.

As for Sanchez, his rep on Wednesday told E! News that “The rumor is entirely untrue.”

Sanchez would post his response, via twitter: “Nope.”

So obviously the two are dating and it’s only a matter of time before they come out and admit it.
