The 34-year-old told the outlet shooting the series was “very traumatizing because I felt like I was acting out my own life.”

‘Nashville’ streamed for six seasons from 2012 to 2018 where Hayden played the role of a rising country music singer Juliette Barnes, who like the actress struggles to balance her personal and professional life. During the time of the filming Heroes alum also deals with depression and alcohol problems like her onscreen character.

“Straight from the beginning, it was like, I’m dating a football player, [and then] Juliette dates a football player. And then they turned her into an alcoholic,” Panettiere noted. “Then they turned to her leaving her daughter and going to this crazy [place] in Europe.”

Later on, she said of the characters’ similarities with her life, “They weren’t doing their homework. They weren’t creating new storylines. They were just looking at my life and going, ‘Oh, let’s just take what she’s going through and put our little spin on it,’ And then, ta-da! It’s done and done.”

Panettiere explained she “didn’t have time to take care of myself [and] to think about and go through the pain I was experiencing physically [and] emotionally.”

Previously Panettiere told People in July 2022 about the lowest phase of her life after daughter Kaya’s move to Ukraine with her ex-fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko with whom she split in 2018,

“I would have the shakes when I woke up and could only function with sipping alcohol, It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. But I wanted to be a good mom to her — and sometimes that means letting them go,” she said.

Additionally, she said of her daughter that she “never had the feeling that I wanted to harm my child, but I didn’t want to spend any time with her.” As for Klitschko, she shared, “He didn’t want to be around me. I didn’t want to be around me. But with the opiates and alcohol, I was doing anything to make me feel happy for a moment. Then I’d feel worse than I did before. I was in a cycle of self-destruction.”

The actress also spent eight months in rehab as she needed to “get over the hump” of her addiction. 

“It’s an everyday choice, and I’m checking in with myself all the time, But I’m just so grateful to be part of this world again, and I will never take it for granted again,” she noted.
