Amanda Seyfried appears in the December issue of Vanity Fair, and what a gorgeous photoshoot it is! Amanda is promoting her two new movies, ‘Les Miserables’ and ‘Lovelace’. In the photo shoot, which I’ve included, the beautiful actress poses in outfits by Dior, Elie Saab and Valentino.
There was a short interview that went along with the pictures. Here are some excerpts:
On shooting Mean Girls: “Back then I thought every movie that was made found an audience and things were all stars and butterflies,” she sighs, “before I developed a relationship with this world.”
On working with Hugh Jackman in Les Mis: “There is nothing bad to say about Hugh. He isn’t human. I bet you anything he’s got some kind of superhuman capabilities, beyond just being just the kindest, gentlest soul I’ve come across.” Plus, she says, he has a wildly inappropriate sense of humour, which she shares. Together they invented alternative story lines that transformed their characters’ tender relationship into something altogether less innocent, like the old Renault “Papa!” and “Nicole!” ads gone wild. “We sexualized everything as much as we could. It was really funny, the moments we could find . . . It’s like every movie has another version, another satirical version of itself.”
On the challenges of Lovelace: “We were doing a scene where I was supposed to be going down on Peter Sarsgaard. We used a popsicle, and I had my arms covering the popsicle. It was footage that he was going to show the Deep Throatguy, to get her into the movie, to get her cast. I was laughing hysterically throughout. I couldn’t stop laughing.”
I’m excited – MORE than excited – to see ‘Les Miserables’. Unfortunately I’m not terribly excited to see ‘Lovelace’, I just have a bad feeling about it (but I sincerely hope I’m wrong). Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Lindsay Lohan was their first pick – and then they went with Amanda? When Lindsay’s your first choice, you know you’re in trouble.
