Who is Milo Ventimiglia dating now? It looks like Ventimiglia is currently not dating anyone and has decided to solely focus on his career. The actor said that he was single in a May 2021 interview with Haute Living. “I mean, I’m a 43-year-old single guy, you know. I’ve lived on my own for 25, almost 26 years.” Ventimiglia also revealed in the interview that his career comes before everything — including his love life.

“Everything is second position to work — everything. I’ve had friendships and relationships that definitely had a hard time with that. I’d get home from work and a girlfriend would want to spend time together, and I’d have to make sure I did spend time with her, sit down and eat, maybe turn on a movie for 20 minutes.” He continued: “But when my bowl is empty, I’ve got to go into my office and close the door and work for another two hours, so my lines are spot on and I’m ready to be on set the next day, so I’m not wasting time for the crew. You kind of have to dedicate yourself to it in a greater way, and some things are going to be sacrificed while others can run concurrently.”

They reportedly dated for four years before calling it quits in 2006. In September 2017, he expressed that he was proud of Bledel after she won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her work in The Handmaid’s Tale. “I’m very happy for her. She’s always been a great actor and I think as long as she’s been in the business [it’s time] for her to be recognized. I’m very happy for her,” he told Bravo TV. The former lovebirds reunited for the Gilmore Girls reunion miniseries, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, in 2016.

In 2006, Ventimiglia and Actress Hayden Panettiere co-starred on the NBC sci-fi show, Heroes. They started dating in 2007 and were together for two years before splitting in 2009. Ventimiglia was 29 and Panettiere just turned 18 when they started going out — and their relationship was frequently covered in the tabloids.

Ventimiglia previously reflected on his relationship with Panettiere in an interview with Mr. Porter in September 2017. He said he would “never do it again,” adding that “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. You learn from it. You learn a better way of doing things.” He continued: “It wasn’t until my mid to late twenties that the job wears on you, relationships wear on you. But I wouldn’t change a thing. When you get knocked over the head in life, it builds your perspective.”
