Amanda Seyfried was horrified when she found out she had to kiss eight men in one weekend for her new film.

The 24-year-old actress stars in an upcoming adaptation of Red Riding Hood. She was thrilled when she discovered she had two love interests in the movie, but was less impressed when she found out she would have to do a screen test with all of the men auditioning for the roles.

“I had to kiss eight guys in one weekend,” she revealed. “I was screen testing for the two characters that are playing opposite me. It’s really annoying – an intimate thing you have to do with people you don’t want to be intimate with.”

Amanda says she felt terrible after the auditions were complete, but her misery didn’t last long. The next morning she couldn’t help but laugh when the film studio sent her a gift basket stuffed full of breath fresheners.

“As a joke, the studio sent me a basket containing Listerine and Tic Tacs,” she laughed.

Red Riding Hood is being produced by Leonardo DiCaprio. Amanda has previously admitted Leonardo is her “ultimate” actor, and she was disappointed when he refused to star opposite her in the new movie.

“Unfortunately, he’s not in it,” she told British newspaper The Daily Mirror. “I asked him if he would play my dad but he got insulted. He said, ‘I don’t do male leads in love stories anymore’.

“And I said, ‘I wasn’t talking about the male leads, I was talking about my dad! You’re what, 35? Age yourself up a bit!’”


After directing international sensation Twilight, director Catherine Hardwicke will remain in the fantasy arena with Red Riding Hood, which is now dated Apr. 22, 2011. Starring Amanda Seyfried, Max Irons and Shiloh Fernandez, the movie will retell the classic fairy tale, pitting a girl (Seyfried) against the werewolf that haunts her village every full moon. Red Riding Hood shares the April 22 date


Shiloh Fernandez is set to star in the gothic horror Girl With The Red Riding Hood, a re-imagining of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale.

The 25-year-old actor will play orphaned woodcutter Peter, who falls for Amanda Seyfried’s character.

THR reports Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke will be helming the Warner Bros. project. (Shiloh actually tested for the role of vamp Edward.)

Leonardo DiCaprio is producing through his Appian Way shingle.


Big Love” and Jennifer’s Body star Amanda Seyfried confirmed tonight in a red carpet interview with E! at the Oscars that she will indeed be starring in Twilight helmer Catherine Hardwicke’s The Girl With the Red Riding Hood for Warner Bros.

The Girl with the Red Riding Hood written by David Johnson (Orphan) is a retelling of the old Red Riding Hood fairy tale, that we can only hope comes sans any sparkling entities and or underwearwolves. Oh, who are we kidding? We know that they will be there. Either way, we’ll be watching and hoping for the best. The original fairy tales by The Brother’s Grimm were deliciously dark so keep your fingers crossed that at least some of that content makes it in.


I haven’t had a chance to watch the preshow yet but I will try to have the interview up if I can :)
