Amanda Seyfried Mentions Kristen Stewart and Twilight in “Interview” Magazine
As we previously reported, Amanda Seyfried of the upcoming film Red Riding Hood recently did an Q&A interview with the very talented Justin Timberlake for Interview magazine. In this interview, Amanda was asked about her upcoming film and the references to Twilight :
TIMBERLAKE: It seems like a lot of people are comparingÂ Red Riding HoodÂ to theÂ Twilight series. How does that make you feel?
SEYFRIED: I think itâ€™s hard not to compareÂ Red Riding HoodÂ because Catherine [Hardwicke] directed the firstÂ Twilight. ButÂ Red Riding HoodÂ is a very different film. I mean, yeah, thereâ€™s a love triangle, and people can easily compare the relationship between Kristen Stewart and those two guys inÂ TwilightÂ to the Valerie, Henry, and Peter characters in this movie, but we have so many elements that make it completely different. Nobody knows who the wolf is in our movie. And weâ€™ve modernized the story and added so many levels to it and created our own story around the iconic center, which is the girl in the woods who talks to the wolf, and has a great relationship with her grandmother, and all those symbols. But we obviously had to take the story to a whole other level in order to make it a full-length film, so thatâ€™s what we did.
TIMBERLAKE: But I would imagine that itâ€™s hard to do something like a Little Red Riding Hood adaptation because that story could be interpreted in so many different ways.
SEYFRIED: I know, and what weâ€™ve done is just one way. Weâ€™re just telling a storyâ€”our version of the story. Itâ€™s not everybodyâ€™s version of the story, but itâ€™s the way we wanted to make it, and therefore, there it is. If you donâ€™t like it, then tough. [laughs] Plus,Â TwilightÂ doesnâ€™t have Gary Oldman, now does it?
