Amanda Seyfried has opened up about her early career and said that she regrets filming nude scenes at such a young age.
The Mean Girls and Dropout star looked back on those days in a new interview with Net-a-Porter, recalling a time when there wasn’t the same “respect level” she feels around her now. Where she even said that she did some things when she was a younger actor that wasn’t fully her will to do, including disrobing for certain roles so as not to rock the boat or “upset anybody.”
Amanda Seyfried first acting role was on As the World Turns when she was 15, and she made her big screen debut five years later, playing the ditzy Karen Smith in Mean Girls. The actress had her fair share of gross comments, where an iconic Karen line was about her breasts predicting the weather, and this some male fans called or repeat to her on the street. she told Marie Claire earlier this year she was content to not be “super famous,” She said: “I always felt really grossed out by that. I was like 18 years old. It was just gross.
Seyfried explained in her Net-a-Porter interview, another benefit to being a show business veteran, is not to be thrown by rejection after she was considered for the role of Glinda in the two-part feature film adaptation of the musical Wicked, with the part ultimately going to Ariana Grande. Seyfried shared that losing the job “was devastating” to her, but didn’t “take away from [her] confidence at all.”
It’s unclear exactly what films Amanda is referring to but she was 19 when she filmed the black comedy Alpha Dog. In the movie, Amanda’s character Julie goes skinny-dipping and has a threesome with her boyfriend Zack (Anton Yelchin) and Alma (Amber Heard).
Amanda said that she now avoids any “unnecessary nudity or sex” in her acting work. She added: “As you get older you realise it’s not easy. It can be funky and uncomfortable,” and explained she “wishes she could be coming up now, in an era where intimacy coordinators are an on-set requirement and actors are in a better position to speak up.”
