Hayden Panettiere Open-Minded About Amanda Knox

HAYDEN Panettiere can’t decide whether convicted murderer Amanda Knox is guilty of her crime or not.  The actress — who plays Knox in a TV movie about her trial and conviction for the murder of her college roommate in Italy three years ago — insists that after researching her character and the crime, she’s still open-minded about Knox.

“We genuinely spent five weeks, every day, talking about it and reading about it and looking at new evidence, trying to form some sort of opinion about it,” Hayden said.

“It was like, ‘She’s innocent. She’s guilty. She’s innocent. She’s guilty. She’s innocent.’ I can’t say that I have an opinion. I don’t know that we’ll ever really know.

“But, regardless of innocence or guilt, I believe she has a spirit. She’s a real person. She was a young girl who had dreams and aspirations.

“She went to Italy to go to school and broaden her horizons, and have experiences and meet new people. I don’t think that guilt or innocence takes away from that.”
