Amanda Seyfried Talks Tennis and Overeating in Italy

Amanda Seyfried has plenty of skills, but it sounds like her tennis game is a little lacking. Apparently she was “put to shame” by her 73-year-old Letters to Juliet co-star Vanessa Redgrave when they played while filming in Italy.

Amanda gushed about Vanessa: “She is the most open woman on this planet. She gives everything in a scene. She’s the number one best communicator and she’s so connected. She also looks amazing. We would play tennis in the mornings when we weren’t shooting, and this woman can move. She puts me to shame.”

While her tennis skills weren’t up to much, the blonde beauty, who is dating British actor Dominic Cooper, admits she needed the exercise because she indulged in too many local culinary treats while filming in Verona. She explained in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper: “I used to wake up at four in the morning and go running each day because I needed to work out. I was eating so much — much too much. You had to eat the bread. I think it was required. I don’t remember saying no to gelato. Believe me when I say that if I didn’t work out, the audience would have noticed.”
