Amanda Seyfried's Italian Love

Subscribe Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfried thinks Italy is the perfect place to film a romantic movie.

The American actress admits her recent experience of filming in the country for 'Letters to Juliet' - loosely based on the Shakespeare tale 'Romeo and Juliet' - with Gael Garcia Bernal was "perfect".

She said: "It was amazing. Italy is the perfect place, really, in some ways the heart of Europe.

"It's really old and really warm, and there's so much good wine and food and people and culture and art.

"It's the perfect place, and I can't believe I was able to live there for two months. It's sort of ideal."

Amanda also claims the film does have a different storyline to the Shakespeare classic, despite its similarity in title.

She said: "If 'Romeo and Juliet' didn't exist, the movie wouldn't exist. But otherwise it's its own story."

The 24-year-old star - who made her name in Tina Fey comedy 'Mean Girls' - adds she didn't think of the 'Letters to Juliet' as a comedy until she saw the first cut of the film.

She said: "I don't know, I don't find it as funny. I thought the script was super romantic, and I loved that. But there are some funny elements when I saw the first cut."

'Letters to Juliet' is due for release in North America on May 14.
