The Scene

SUNDAY MUSIC VIDS: Natalie Merchant

Catherine Hardwicke coos, "She's got one of the most incredible faces... Sometimes she's Angelina Jolie, sometimes she's a young Michelle Pfeiffer, sometimes she's an alien, sometimes she's a 15-year-old Dakota Fanning. She goes through every kind of transformation.

"And she is fierce and beautiful... She's a wild child. You don't know what's going to happen or come out of her mouth, and that's thrilling."

And the director admits Amanda Seyfried was a pleasure to work with when the cameras weren't rolling.

She adds, "She's not a diva... She's generous, funny, spontaneous, and she doesn't complain and isn't a pain in the a** to work with. She's kind of unreal."
