It looks like Hayden Panettiere's wild Nashville alter-ego is rubbing off on her!
Monday night, right before co-hosting CMT's Artists of the Year, the blonde ABC star was spotted downing whiskey out of a solo cup with country legend Toby Keith.
Witnesses say the guzzling took place as soon as Hayden saw Toby taking swigs from the plastic red glass, and said:
Panettiere: "What's in the cup?"
Panettiere: "I've got Fireball in the trailer!"
Then, Panettiere took a big gulp from Keith's solo cup and hollered: "Yeaaah!"
We're sure it was the PERFECT cure for her pre-hosting jitters! LOLz!
Don't miss the slightly tipsy actress host CMT's Artists of the Year when it airs Saturday Dec. 8 on CMT!
