On top of being a famous actress, over the past nine years, Hayden has been in a relationship with Boxing star Wladimir Klitschko. While it was considered to be a strange union between the two stars that many fans found hard to accept when it was first announced, it seems that the couple has been able to push past all of the negativity and have now remained together for almost a decade.

Hayden then shared a story about how she walked over to the boxer and stated "You're huge" to which he then replied "You're tiny" and that was seemingly it. As part of the interview, the actress also talked about how her kids would look given the huge size gap between the couple and she stated that she thought that the fact that she had knocked knees and her fiance had bowed legs meant that her child would be perfect since it would be a mix between them.
