Amanda Seyfried on Working With Leonardo DiCaprio: There Was Weird Tension on Set

Most people don't know that Leonardo DiCaprio was a producer for the film Red Riding Hood.

Amanda Seyfried, the star of the film, tells us that she knew it would be a great film because Leo was involved.

Amanda told Hollyscoop, "I feel that because he wanted to do this movie and he was so involved I was like wow, he doesn’t just do anything, he makes good decisions and I trust his instincts."

In regards to having Leo on set Amanda said, “When [DiCaprio] came to visit there was a weird tension on set. Everybody was whispering, ‘He’s here! He’s here!’ You know, he’s like a godfather. He’s like De Niro to the younger generation of actors.”

So why should we go to the movies to watch ‘Red Riding Hood’?

Amanda explains, "You should se this film because it is sexy, it’s really dark, there’s a massive murder mystery that keeps you guessing the whole time, which is my favorite part. I just love thrillers because of that."

And this is just no ordinary fairy tale. It’s actually dark and sexy. Amanda tells us, "We’ve expanded on some of the important meanings of the original fairytale, but we’ve also added a lot of sex, a lot of terror, it’s my favorite part of the movie we need to keep guessing who the wolf is. It’s really well written."
