The revelation came as the actress spoke to Marie Claire online about the hotly anticipated movie adaptation of Les Miserables. Amanda plays Cosette, who is unknowingly part of a love triangle leaving Eponine (Samantha Barks) heartbroken when Marius (Eddie Redmayne) chooses to be with Cosette.

And it appears an 11-year-old Amanda was also able to let Leonardo go, although he’s reportedly single now. We wonder it he’ll reciprocate her feelings 16 years on...
