Amanda Seyfried covers the January issue of InStyle: “I don’t actually have sex with every male I come into contact with”
The lovely Amanda Seyfried covers the January issue of InStyle magazine, and in the article she talks about her role as Cosette in ‘Les Miserables’.
I think she looks great on the cover. She’s so much prettier (in my opinion) when she’s not wearing a ton of makeup (like this).
I’m getting very excited for ‘Les Miserables’. All these promotions, magazine covers, interviews, red carpets, and I’m READY! I hope it lives up to my expectations, but we’ll see. Critics have been pretty mixed so far. They either love it or hate it. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground.
Here are clips from the interview:
On working with Channing Tatum in Dear John: “Channing was amazing. He’s a superstar. Everybody wants to have sex with him. And the only person he wants to have sex with is his wife, Jenna [Dewan-Tatum]. He’s the most loyal husband.”
She’s unlucky in love: “I’m just more attracted to actors. I like their choice to be artists–that’s ballsy. And a guy who has such access to his emotional life is sexy… Maybe I’m so attracted to actors because I’m not ready for the ‘settled down’ thing yet. The thing is, I can’t date anybody without it being portrayed as a serious relationship in the tabloids. It sucks! Like Josh Hartnett and I were friends; we hung out, we dated. I don’t actually have sex with every male I come into contact with,” she says.
She’d have cut her hair for the Fantine role: “I would have done that for sure. I probably wouldn’t lose or gain weight for a role, though. I’m too health-conscious. And I don’t think I could actually lose weight because I couldn’t be on that kind of a diet. I would lose my mind.”
On going nude for Lovelace: “It’s not about my body. It’s not about me,” she says of doing nude scenes. “You’re playing somebody else. You’re not going to believe a love scene if the people are dressed. You’re not going to believe a stripper who has on a bra and underwear the whole time. At the same time, it has to do with how comfortable you are with letting people see your skin. For me, I’m okay with it.”
She takes Lexapro for her OCD: “I have to do lots of things at the same time. It’s an obsessive-compulsive thing,” says Seyfried, who takes Lexapro to control her OCD. (Example: When she’s on the elliptical machine at the gym, she’s also knitting, playing Soduku, and listening to music. “I don’t feel like I’m struggling with it. I think OCD is a part of me that protects me. It’s also the part of me that I use in my job, in a positive way. The only thing I’d like to get beyond is my fear of driving over bridges and through tunnels. I can’t overcome it.”
