Hayden Panettiere, Mark Sanchez


So True So False, STSF

We all know Hayden Panettiere likes her men big—her most recent boyfriend was gigantic boxing beast Wladimir Klitschko

So it's no surprise that the newly single star was looking extremely happy over the weekend while strolling around Laguna Beach with local hunk-turned-strapping New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez

The duo was snapped walking side by side as they left an In-N-Out Burger, with Sanchez wearing a huge grin on his face as (the much tinier) Hayden looked over (and up) at him. 

So what's up with these two? Are they really the latest oddball Hollywood coupling? We asked around and we're told this story is...

So false!

Despite the happy pics of them together, Sanchez's spokesman is shooting down talk of a hookup.

"The rumor is entirely untrue," the rep tells E! News.

It would have been a quick rebound for the 21-year-old Panettiere. Just three weeks ago she broke it off with the boxer after nearly two years of dating, blaming it on the fact they are currently living in two different countries.

The 5-foot-1 actress and the 6-foot-6 pro pugilist made for an odd coupling, with Panettiere once telling Ellen DeGeneres they "find a way" to get busy.

Sanchez, 24, has been linked to a 17-year-old high school student and briefly dated Sopranos honey Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

Too bad. Despite the size differential, these two look pretty cute together.
