Amanda Seyfried Insulted Leonardo DiCaprio With Father Role Request
Recalling the time she asked the 'Shutter Island' actor play the role of her father in a movie, the 'Dear John' star admits she upset him further by telling him to 'age himself up'.
insulted by asking him to play her father. The 24-year-old actress, who is working on new movie "", which is produced by the 35-year-old actor, admits she upset the hunky film star by telling him to "age himself up" and portray her dad in the film.

"Unfortunately he's not in it. I asked him if he would play my dad but he got insulted! He said, 'I don't do male leads in love stories any more'," she said. "And I said, 'I wasn't talking about the male leads, I was talking about my dad. You're what, 35? Age yourself up a bit!' "

The pretty actress usually suffers from severe shyness and once completely blanked when they were stuck in a lift together, because she didn't know what to say. She explained in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper, "I can't connect to fame yet. One day I will - when I get used to it."

"You know, I was in an elevator with Harrison Ford and in order to respect his privacy, I didn't even look at him, which was really stupid of me. Why not say something like, 'Hey dude, I grew up with you. You're amazing. Nice to meet you'. Why can't I say that? I don't know. I was nervous."
