Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panettiere, Thomas Dekker

Watch out Ah-nuld: Thomas Dekker is raging against the machine—the press machine! And personally, I find it too amusing not to share.

You know how the Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles star reportedly told Life & Style magazine a couple weeks back that he thought the relationship between his former Heroes costar Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia was "gross" because of the age difference? (If not, you can read about it here.)  

Well, we just so happened to witness the aftermath at a recent Fox party, where Mr. Dekker came face to face with a Life & Style reporter and erupted into:  "Wait a minute! Aren't you guys the ones who reported that comment about Hayden?!...I'm gonna kill that guy! I said it was gross, but then I said I was just kidding!"

Dekker was actually pretty sweet and playful about it, telling the L&S reporter (who did not pen the initial story), "I know it's not your fault." Still, he was mighty insistent on setting the record straight.

"On the Internet, it says I'm disgusted by [Hayden and Milo's relationship]," Dekker said. "I would have to actually care to be disgusted by it. I'm not disgusted. And, you know, if the relationship is making them happy, then of course it's not gross. I'm just saying that I could never date someone with that big of an age [difference]. I just don't see myself having anything in common with a person whose age is that [far from mine], but that's just me."

You gotta love the chutzpah! Though, it should be expected from the boy who will someday save the world. Sigh.
