I want to be like Meryl Streep: Amanda Seyfried

London: "Mean Girls" actress Amanda Seyfried says she wants to be like Oscar winning star Meryl Streep.

"I would like to be one of those actresses who can do anything. I would like to be like Meryl Streep some day, but then I don`t know many people in this business who don`t have that goal," femalefirts.co.uk quoted Amanda as saying.

Discussing her upcoming appearance in Catherine Hardwicke`s big screen adaptation of "Red Riding Hood", Amanda reveals it will be different from what many expect.

"Catherine has a very vivid, clear idea, a beautiful idea of what she wants us to be. Very gothic, very dark and unlike `Twilight`," she added.

The actress, will star alongside Gary Oldman, Julie Christie and Lukas Haas in the film, which is due for release in April 2011.
