Hayden Panettiere opens up in the May issue of Glamour magazine in which she covers. In the magazine she talks about fame from being a child actress to today with her successful hit ABC show Nashville.

She told the mag:

"I came up in the Messy Generation. The generation of the disaster child."

"It's not that I didn't go to clubs, have my picture taken," she added. "I was 16 years old. I was experimenting just like any kid. But I had friends and family around me to yank me back when I was heading in the wrong direction. "

"The thing that really saved me was that I still had that healthy fear of my parents -- I still had a midnight curfew at 18!"

On being a role model to other young women:

"I will never say that I'm perfect; I will never pretend to be perfect," she said. "That's just unrealistic. You're kind of unexpectedly put in this position of becoming a role model; that's not something you choose."

On some day getting married and starting a family:

"I don't really have a plan. I've lived a very big life, and I don't feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother.”

"Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there's nothing that I feel like I can't accomplish while having children in my life," she added. "I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids."

Hayden is currently back with her ex-beau Wladmir Klitschko; they have even been rumored to be engaged.
