Megan Fox may have misquoted the Bard, but at least everything is spelled correctly.

Hayden Panettiere, the famous cheerleader from "Heroes," has a tattoo that reads "Vivere senza rimipianti," which means "to live without regrets" in Italian. Or it would, if it was spelled correctly.

Panettiere has an extra "i" in "rimipianti," which should read "rimpianti." We're pretty sure she regrets that one.
