Amanda Seyfried hugs a duck in the latest issue of Elle magazine and confesses that she’s a sucker for love on the set, but has been shy about relationships since her break up with Dominic Cooper.
Seyfried is starring in “Red Riding Hood,” a darker take on the childrens’ fairy tale, and walked the red carpet at the movie’s premiere Monday night (Mar. 7) at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in LA.
The 25-year-old actress wore a purple Lanvin dress from the line’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, nude Lanvin pumps, and a Tom Binns Design necklace.
Amanda, who’s reportedly dating Ryan Phillippe (Reese Witherspoon’s ex), admits it’s easy to fall in love on a movie set.
“[It is] one of the easiest things in the world,” she says. “You’re both open. You’re put in a situation where you have to make out with each other. It’s easy for things to get carried away.”
Seyfried also shared her views on-screen kissing and her brief romance with True Blood hottie Alexander Skarsgard
On her best on-screen kisses: “I can’t lie. It didn’t suck making out with Channing [Tatum] and Justin [Timberlake]. “
On her outspoken personality: “I talk like I know what I’m saying, but I don’t. I like the freedom of being exactly who I am. And that’s gotten me into trouble.”
On her ideal on-screen love interest: “I’d really love to make out with Michael Fassbender. Put me in a movie with that guy. I’m serious. Wow.”
On her ex Dominic Cooper: “I was just kind of foolishly thinking that the two of them were done and Dom and I were involved. But we weren’t really as involved as I thought. So I got my heart broken pretty hard.. And then [after we briefly] reunited, it took a long time for us to break up again. After that, it’s really hard to open myself up to a new person. Really hard.”
On Ryan Phillippe: “Um, yeah. I’ve been ‘seen’ with him.”
On Alexander Skarsgård: “We dated. He’s super-funny, but I was too involved with Dom.”
On Meryl Streep’s down-to-earth attitude: “Meryl, she makes herself very accessible right away, almost too accessible. That’s what I do. And it totally works. My thing about meeting people—men, women, people in general—is to desensitize them, kind of shock them a little bit, to make myself accessible.”
On her fear of live tv interviews: “It would just show that I’m weak, not equipped to handle my job; that’s my biggest fear.”
