Dad from “This Is Us” says he would never date another co star.
Before Ventimiglia was cast as one of the leads on NBC’s hit drama series This Is Us, the actor starred as Peter Petrelli on the sci-fi drama Heroes from 2006-10. While acting opposite Hayden Panettiere, who appeared as Claire Bennet on the Golden Globe-nominated show, the pair’s relationship turned romantic, thrusting the former couple into the limelight.
Reflecting on dating a previous costar in a new interview with Mr. Porter, Ventimiglia admitted he would “never do it again.”
“There are things that happen to you in your life that shape who you are. Everything I’ve been through from jobs to friendships to partnerships, everything has built me to who I am,” he said.
“You learn from it. You learn a better way of doing things. It wasn’t until my mid to late twenties that the job wears on you, relationships wear on you,” added Ventimiglia.
Still, he revealed he “wouldn’t change a thing.”
“When you get knocked over the head in life, it builds your perspective,” he added.
New “This Is Us” starts in two weeks!
