Milo Ventimiglia: ‘I’ll Be on the Show as Long as They’ll Have Me’

Poor Milo Ventimiglia.

Yesterday, OK! magazine reported that his Heroes co-star – and former flame – Hayden Panettiere wants him booted off the hit NBC show.

“Put the best foot forward – and leave everything else up to time,” Milo told us in December 2007 about departure rumors.

“She refuses to be on the set at the same time as him,” an insider told OK! magazine. “She is making it difficult for everyone involved.”

(Hayden’s rep denied the report.)

But this isn’t the first time Milo, 31, has endured reports that he’s leaving Heroes.

Fourteen months ago, he chatted about the touchy topic with Mr. Media host Bob Andelman.

“I’m a loyal guy. And I also have a contact that I hope to honor. So I’ll be on the show as long as they’ll have me – and as long as I’m obligated to,” he said when asked about rumors that he might ditch the show.

He also touched on the topic of his love life post-Hayden, who’s now 19.

When a listener asked, “If you’re not dating Hayden Panettiere, who are you dating?” Milo said:

“When you’re young in this industry and you work as much as I do, you try to spend time with people who want to spend time with you.”

Finally, Milo dished about criticism that Season 2 of Heroes was too slow-paced.

“We had some problems early on. And [we were] still working out problems toward the end.”
