"He's doing great. He's doing really awesome," she told me at yesterday's DirecTV Celebrity Beach Bowl in Dallas, adding that she's spoken to him since his release.
David even threw Hayden's birthday bash last year when they were filming. Hayden explained that the cast is all one big happy family...
"We're all buddies," she explained before taking the field to play touch football, "It's a big group of us and we're very supportive of each other and he's doing awesome."
"It's coming out soon," she told me, "I hear amazing things about it. I haven't seen it yet but it's gonna be a fun movie."
It turns out Hayden isn't only talented on-camera...she's also got skills on the field. She was part of the winning team yesterday, which was coached by Alex Rodriguez, and included Chace Crawford, Jessica Szohr and Chord Overstreet.
