Amanda Seyfried - Amanda Seyfried Hopes Performance Is 'Respected'

Amanda Seyfried hopes her portrayal of 'Red Riding Hood' is "respected and welcomed".

The 25-year-old beauty plays the Grimm Brothers' classic fairytale heroine in a new movie of the same name and she hopes audiences enjoy watching the film as much as she enjoyed making it.

She said: "It feels really cool to bring to life that iconic character. I hope that it is respected and welcomed.

"This is such a big deal for me. I've always wanted to do a period piece, and this was way beyond my expectations. The vision was so full of romance and tension and mystery. There are so many things you can do with this story."

The updated version of the movie features Amanda's character caught up in a love triangle with two men - played by Shiloh Fernandez and Max Irons - when a wolf attacks their village, eating a number of family members, and the actress says the movie is filled with "sexual tension and terror".

She added: "Our movie is geared for young adults and is more along the lines of the Grimms version with all the sexual tension, suspicion and terror.

"There's a lot of sexual symbolism, and over the years it's been extracted. And then we kind of put it back in."
