"There’s a lot of misunderstanding," Panettiere said on "Live! With Kelly and Michael." "There’s a lot of people out there that think that it’s not real, that it's not true, that it's something that's made up in their minds, that 'Oh, it's hormones.' They brush it off. It’s something that's completely uncontrollable. It's really painful and it's really scary and women need a lot of support."
"It's one of those really riveting stories where you just don't know," Hayden Panettiere, who plays Knox, told television writers on Friday. "I can't say I have an opinion. That's why the story is so interesting. I don't know that we'll ever really know."
