Amanda Seyfriend Talks about ‘Red Riding Hood’ Comparisons to ‘Twilight’

I saw this film this weekend and I have to say..I do not get the comparison to Twilight. I didn’t see any similarities!

The American actress – who made her film debut in Mean Girls – is best known for her roles in Mamma Mia!, Dear John and Jennifer’s Body.

She can next be seen in dark fantasy film Red Riding Hood – which is produced by Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who previously worked on Twilight.

The 25-year-old actress is tired of being asked if the gothic film will make her into a star like Kristen Stewart.

“She’s [Kristen Stewart] uncomfortable with it, but also, it’s like, she’s only noticed for that and she’s been working for so long. There’s hype but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t just a little bit annoyed at the Twilight comparisons,” she told Marie Claire magazine.

The stunning star says she doesn’t worry about being in Kristen’s position. She hopes the film will rival the Twilight saga’s success, but if it does, it would be for “different” reasons.

    There were comparisons, but I think it had more to do with Hardwick's style of directing.

    Love the Film… It's not that much like Twilight,.. Exept for the fact, that they're both AMAZING films!!!
    Love Amanda &'' Kristen!!

    Twilight is an awful film. I had to rely heavily on the fact that I read the book to actually understand the intensity of Edward & Bella's love. I hope Catherine can do a better job at actually telling the story rather than working on presumptions that we already know it.

    It starts off the with main actress talking (VO) as does Twilight. Are they sisters? Because they have the same dad! That hot guy Peter must have gotten his hair style from Edward Cullen and the whole meeting in the Forest thing… It is in some parts like Twilight and as much as I LOVE Twilight, I believe it could have been filmed better, but Red Riding Hood was amazing, cant fault it at all.

    I've seen Amanda in Dear John and Letters to Juliet, and I almost can't wait to se Red Ridding Hood in danish cinema when it's startet.
    I LOVE the Twilight saga to.

    i don't get it kristen is uncomfortable with what? because people keep on comparing twilight and red riding hood?

  • http://twitter.com/KellyDyche Kelly Dyche

    She probably doesn't like the fact this Amanda girl is better looking lol and a better actress!

  • alicia

    lol, star like Kristen… they are both amazing and Amanda has been known pretty long and is a star for the same long time… so what 'star like Kristen'?

  • Betsy Hudson77

    I think the article was meant to quote Amanda, but I'm still a little confused. Why would Amanda be quoting Kristen? How does she know what she feels like? Oh well, on to something else! haha

  • MaryAlice

    hahaha you really think that movie red riding hood is better then twilight lol i bet this red riding hood movie got only 1 part twilight got 4 movies and its making 2 parts out of the last movie ?? so whats better ? and u cant come between edwards and bellas love come on think about it they really love eachother in real life robert and kristen and this red riding hood movie got wolfs i dont think no vampires only jacob is a shape shifter on twilight and the pak but no vampires how can this movie conpare to twilight and i same person that did twilight did this to doesent matter i dont care if people thinks if vampires sparkle people thinks there gay there so wrong in the twilight movie i find that pretty hot

  • Keren

    I honestly don't seee any comparison with Red Riding Hood to Twilight, I believe that it's better then Twilight, I think Catherine Hardwicke did a really great job in filming the movie. I was surprised who was the wolf in the end!
    Over all great film!
    and I think Amanda Seyfriend is a great actress too! And Red Riding Hood is one of her best films!

  • the vampire…!*

    jejejejejejejejje ilike !!!

  • Brandy

    I agree. There were a couple of similarites, but it was mostly the directing style. I loved the movie, and thought Hardwick did a great job.

  • i♥twilight

    It sounds to me like Amanda has an understanding that Kristen is uncomfortable with the fact that most people only know her for the twilight movies, but nothing else she did prior to twilight, like the other films don't even matter. That's just apparent. You wouldn't even have to know KStew personally to conclude it. Except for twilight fans, the general public is probably not even aware she had any other roles other than {twilight} because she hadn't been under that spotlight before.

  • Amanda

    i have to agree with you 100% if i had not read the book i would never have known what their love was really like, and not to mention that the book gives more into edward than the movie ever has. i think to much was left out and she made it out to be alittle to blue in the movie. new moon was better and eclispe was ever better than that. i just pray that breaking dawn is just as good. and i can't wait to see red riding hood.

  • Angie

    Certainly is nothing like twilight. It could be from the same director but it has not comparison

  • Queendevil6969

    i liked the movie dont get me wrong but ppl really got to stop with the hole comparison with twilight cuz the woman who did twilight and this movie does not meen they are going to be alike …and on the other hand if u read up on twilight the woman messed up big time makeing it and this movie red riding hood i hated the ending unless they plan on maken a part 2 the ending sucked ..but thats my thought lol

  • TeamRobWardSoJustDealWithIt

    Mmmm…. Twilight still owns all! :D xoxoxo TeamRobWardSoJustDealWithIt

  • HelloIgnorance

    Would you seriously just shut up; your grammar and spelling is terrible. Just because a film series has more parts than another film franchise does NOT make it better.

    Real Vampires do NOT sparkle.
    Kristen and Rob do NOT know you.
    Bella and Edward are NOT real.

    I hope you don't breed.

  • HelloIgnorance

    Because most people will only know her for Twilight.

  • Blazer <3

    I hate it when there are comparisons… Twilight has style and Red Riding hood has another styles so just call it a draw and say : ” Both are beautiful creations of art…it can't be compared…”

  • Jv_quima

    i hear yah! most of the directors of the three movies didn't give justice to the books amazing story. ☺

  • Jv_quima

    there are no ral vamps so how can you say what a real va,p is like? haha. the joke's on you.
    the moviesmay not be that good but the books are awesome.

  • Jv_quima

    no she isn't prettier. yep she's nice looking but kristen is prettier. it just so happens that kristen isn't in to much make up and glaming up.

  • Jv_quima

    who cares if she's only known for the twilight? that's why it's called her 'big break'. every actor needs that. and at least with justone movie, more people recognized her than other actresses.
