Hollywood actress Amanda Seyfried began her career as a model when she was just 11 years old. Since then Amanda has slowly but surely made her way to Hollywood superstardom. Now, Amanda has admitted that she is glad that she he the chance to learn and grow as an actress, rather than becoming an overnight success story.
Seyfried told Indiewire, “It's been such a slow move for me. And I'm really lucky because I got to experience each thing as it came, as opposed to being bombarded with all this attention. It's always been slow. People say, 'Oh, breakout star overnight,' to these actors of my generation. It must be hard to get all that attention and know what's real at the end of the day. And luckily a lot of them do and they're real people... I can call them my peers and I'm super proud.”
She added, “Also, I've just worked a long time. I've gotten a lot of cool opportunities here and there and I've made some good choices with the help of my amazing team. I was with them since I was 16. It all feels right; it feels good. I still look back at 'Mean Girls' as my best work.”
Amanda continued, “I was so innocent. I was so green. I look back and I'm like, 'Really, I thought I was doing a terrible job.' But it was written so well and so wonderfully directed. Mark Waters (the director) made me look good; he made me funny. And Tina Fey wrote the coolest script of all time. I'm so grateful for every experience.”
Amanda Seyfried stars as Linda Lovelace in the movie Lovelace, alongside Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple, Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Wes Bentley and James Franco. Lovelace is directed by Robert Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, based on the screenplay by Andy Bellin, and recently featured at the Sundance Film Festival.
