Gary Oldman laughed with Amanda

April 16th, 2011

Gary Oldman couldn't look at Amanda Seyfried when filming 'Red Riding Hood' because she made him laugh so much.

The 53-year-old actor stars with the blonde beauty in Catherine Hardwicke's reimagining of the classic fairytale, and he admits the pair struggled to suppress their giggles when on set together.

He said: "She is so funny. She'd whisper something and I'd lose it.

"I had to tell her not to look at me because we'd crack up. I said I'd look at her forehead and she should look at my ear. She's a riot."

Gary also explained he was attracted to the "dark and twisted" nature of the script for the movie, which sees him play a priest.

He said: "It's a dark and twisted version and I found that appealing. I just had to do it.

"I liked the script very much and I thought the character was fun. It also gave me the chance to work with the lovely Amanda Seyfried and the director Catherine Hardwicke, whose visual style is stunning."
