Masi Oka: Hayden is My Hook-Up for Advice

by at . Comments

When it comes to matters of the heart or the paparazzi, Masi Oka doesn't need to look far for advice.

His Heroes co-star may only be 18, but Hayden Panettiere has been through it all. Despite her break-up with Laguna Beach alum Stephen Colletti, Hayden is a reliable source for all the words of wisdom Oka requires.

Milo, Masi and Hayden "[Stephen] was a good guy," Oka, 32, told People magazine during the Emmy celebrations over the weekend. "But I'm really in no place to give her advice because I'm looking for love myself and I haven't had much luck there. I'm single and available.

Masi went on to say that the actress who portrays Claire Bennet is the one that helps him out in a pinch.

"She's the one that gives advice," Oka said. "I remember one day we went to this premiere and I didn't realize it was a press event and they were taking pictures and Hayden came up to me and said 'Masi, you have a hickey! We have to cover you up!' And I was like, 'Whoa. I didn't know that.' Hayden always takes care of all of us."

Oka, Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia and the rest of the Heroes cast partied together all weekend - starting with the Emmy Nominees Reception Friday and on through Sunday night's Emmys post-parties - with Oka and Panettiere singing and dancing to Duran Duran at the Walt Disney Concert Hall following the ceremony.

We think we know who led.
