The petite actress started dating former New York Jets wide receiver Scotty McKnight from June 2011, after meeting through mutual friend and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. TMZ announced the couple split in December 2012.
Hayden previously dated her Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia and heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko.
She told US Weekly back in April that after becoming friends with Mark, she got to know a bunch of his friends and found a connection with Scotty. “I’ve always been that girl who has a lot of dude friends,” she said. “I’m into sports, so we have a lot in common.”
