"I came up in the Messy Generation. The generation of the disaster child. It's not that I didn't go to clubs, have my picture taken. I was 16 years old. I was experimenting just like any kid.

Former child star HAYDEN PANETTIERE, now 23 years old, credits her strict parents with keeping her on the right track.
