Amanda Seyfried teases 'interesting' relationship with Hugh Jackman in Pan

Amanda Seyfried has revealed working with Hugh Jackman on Pan was very different to their last collaboration on Les Miserables.

In the award-winning musical Hugh and Amanda play father and daughter Jean Valjean and Cosette, but in the Peter Pan sequel Hugh is playing pirate Blackbeard while Amanda is Wendy’s mother Mary Darling.

Amanda hinted: “It’s such a different relationship that I have with his character, my character… it’s interesting… It’s so funny going from father and daughter to what we are in this movie.”

The Ted 2 actress has also been working with her other Les Mis co-star Russell Crowe again.

She said: “We did a movie together, but actually we didn’t work together. It’s called Fathers And Daughters, it’s a drama, it’s definitely a tear-jerker.

“It’s by this director Gabriele Muccino who did The Last Kiss, the original one. He’s so good. A lot of incredible cameos in that movie, Jane Fonda plays Russell’s book agent and Octavia Spencer plays my boss and it’s just a great movie. I hope it comes out soon!”

Amanda stars in Ted 2 which is released in UK cinemas on Wednesday July 8.
