Duck, duck, goose – and Amanda?

Amanda Seyfried worked a fairy tale vibe for her cover shoot with Elle magazine, clutching the feathery white bird. But unlike her character in the upcoming film Little Red Riding Hood, who you could say is afraid of the Big Bad Wolf (a werewolf in the movie version), Seyfried exudes a sinister vibe while holding kittens in one shot, and a little lamb in another.
