Hayden Panettiere is critical of how the United States imposes strict age limits on those allowed to purchase alcoholic beverages, and has called it ridiculous.
Hayden says that she’s much happier in Britain where the legal age limit on buying alcohol is 18 and she’s able to get served in bars.
She says that our age restrictions are old-fashioned and in desperate need of reform.
She says, “I can buy porn or kill someone in war but I can’t have a glass of wine. If I could change one thing about America, it would be its ridiculous age limits on things. That’s why I love visiting Britain. I can walk into a bar and order a drink without having to show my passport. That’s so cool.”
Every 18-year-old that I know is pretty much saying the same thing. However, I do agree with Hayden, if you can go to war for your country, then you should be able to buy a beer.
