Amanda talked to MTV about Letters to Juliet and her co-stars.
In “Letters to Juliet,” opening May 14, Amanda Seyfried’s Sophie is torn between two guys: the multifaceted Brit hottie Charlie (Aussie newcomer Christopher Egan) and her fiancé, the equally hot but clueless chef Victor (Gael Garcia Bernal). Call it Sophie’s choice — she eventually does choose between the two.
Although Seyfried’s co-stars, Egan and Bernal, promise plenty of eye candy in “Juliet,” the beautiful Italian countryside in the city of Verona (home of Shakespeare’s Juliet), where the movie is partly set, is also eye-catching. As part of our Summer Movie Preview, MTV News spoke to Seyfried, who admitted she’s still smitten with the flick’s gorgeous backdrop.
MTV: For a movie that’s basing itself on “Romeo and Juliet,” it’s not too heavy-handed about playing up that aspect.
Amanda Seyfried: Yeah, if “Romeo & Juliet” didn’t exist, the movie wouldn’t exist, but otherwise it’s its own story. Absolutely.
