    Hayden Panettiere, like many lovely ladies in Hollywood, is certainly no stranger to the spotlight often focusing on her figure.

    "There is a lot of pressure that comes with it," the Nashville star told FOX411. "But there's also the pressure to be a good role model for women and have a normal, healthy body."

    The 24-year-old blond beauty added,  "But I love being my height and size, and representing a normal girl and a different body type."

    Panettiere made her comments while promoting her involvement in Blue Jeans Go Green's "Great Denim Auction."

    The actress and 12 other celebs, including Britney Spears and Kellan Lutz, have cleaned out their closets and contributed pairs of jeans to the auction, which is designed to raise awareness about textile recycling and help the program collect its one-millionth piece of denim.

    Blue Jeans Go Green has diverted over 600 tons of denim from landfills since 2006, and has utilized the denim for insulation for communities in need and public works projects across the U.S. Fans of the stars can bid on their jeans at www.BlueJeansGoGreen.org until Nov. 3.

    Meanwhile, the second season of Panettiere's show Nashville premieres Sept. 25 on ABC.
