Amanda Seyfried: I'm a Victim of Wanting to Look Like a Supermodel

Amanda Seyfried: I'm a Victim of Wanting to Look Like a Supermodel

Amanda Seyfried shows off her totally flat stomach on the cover of Elle UK magazine’s June 2014 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 28-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On reading what other people say about her: “Sometimes I read the feed where people are talking about me. I want to see what people have posted. Like, if I have a weird conversation with someone in the street and they take a picture of me, sometimes I want to see whether they put it online – it’s stupid, I shouldn’t really. I have a healthy curiosity.”

On her body: “I would be lying if I said I wasn’t constantly aware of what I’m doing with my body. I don’t have to look like a supermodel. I don’t have to have those abs – the camera doesn’t see that. But because we have all been designed to want these things, I’m a victim of this stuff, too.”

FYI: Amanda is wearing a Melissa Odabash bikini top.

    “sex, therapy, food”
    obviously a seyfried interview cannot exist without her discussing sex yet again.

  • lol

    @amanda seyfried: where is she talking about sex? she’s talking about body image you moron.

  • David

    I’ve read the full interview and i have to say NO actress can compete either with her honesty or her beauty ! she’s just amazing !

  • amanda seyfried

    Look at the cover genius. “SEX, THERAPY, FOOD” in big capital letters. She talks about sex again for the billionth time.
    Who’s the moron now?

  • David

    @amanda seyfried: Oh please can’t you just stop you’re the same moron who trolls every Amanda Seyfried post on this site it’s pathetic,and BTW what’s wrong with sex ? it’s a naturel thing what’s the big fuss about it ? plus i’ve read the interview and i swear she mentioned nothing about sex.

  • Ally

    Why would she want to look like a super model ? she looks wayy better than half of them. look at that gorgeous hair and amazing doe eyes!

  • Sutton

    I think she is a bit weird, but weird is good. And she is absolutely gorgeous, and has an amazing body. She is certainly enviable.

  • demon

    Great Actress,but i have to say that she lost some weight i loved her looks in the movie “Letters to julliet” where she had nice cheeks now the cheeks are gone,still gorgeous though.

  • M@

    You all realize her answers are based on the interviewers questions, so if all the interviews are the same you should fault the interviewers not the interviewees.

  • Rachel

    She’s so candid in her interviews i like it

  • ana-S

    Hottest blonde in hollywood hands down !

  • Jane

    She’s cute but she’s not hot in any way. Also a very forgettable actress even though she’s been around over a decade.

  • Fercat

    Yeah, she can be weird, boring, nuts… whatever. But she’s authentic and that comes from the people who’ve worked with her.

    She’s called ‘unfiltered’. And that comes from Channing Tatum back in 2010.

    I think other PR teams scrounge around her old interviews to recycle for their talent so they can be the new cool chic.

  • Fercat

    @demon: Well, she actually admitted to over indulging during the filming of ‘Letters’. It doesn’t take much for her to get those cheeks back, but she starts looking like a teenager when she does.

    Yeah, hot isn’t really the proper word to describe her. Such terms are too sexist anyway. ‘Forgettable?’ For you, yes.

    She already has a place in the archives. When someone searches for the 2 biggest movie musical her name will come up.

  • Ellen

    @Fercat: I agree 100% i mean she’s going to stay around for a long time now so the haters should just suck it up,i’m so excited for next year it’s going to be her year!!

  • :3

    sweet and humble girl, gorgeous gorgeous hair, beautiful big blue eyes, plump lips, and curvy-slim figure and she made it in hollywood being 5’3″ which gives us short girls hope. and she’s a sagittarius which explains for her refreshing candor ;)

  • witch

    Don’t you get that she only says that for us to tell her how beautiful she is?

  • meh

    @witch: every journalist asks every actress in hollywood the body image question. would you rather her say “hey im beautiful and i know it!”? then you’d slate her for being cocky. this is exactly why women can’t win with their opinions or their perceptions of themselves in such an objectified industry.

  • Black

    She looks best with a ‘hard’ hairstyle like in In Time (black bob and fringe). Otherwise she has a very period look and looks washed out.

  • witch

    @meh: Yes, but you can say “hey im beautiful and i know it!” in other words and be honest *coughs*. If it was true nobody would care.

    @Black: Sorry to tell you that nobody cares about her hair. It’s all about bodie, boobs, butt, abs etc.

  • Sey-fan

    @Black: What are you talking about ? she’s drop dead gorgeous!

  • hmmm

    She’s been around for a long time because she has survived playing cute girl but all in all she’s a mediocre B rate actress. She’ll have longevity because there are always B movies that need to be made.

  • Fercat

    @hmmm: Did you not know that B is the new A. How else do people like J. Law, Witherspoon and J. Roberts win their Oscars.

    You want to see a class A at work? Watch Orphan Black.

    Btw, I’d rate Seyfried as a B+ and improving to an A eventually.

  • :)

    @witch: her hair actually helps her out the most, most but not all women with naturally very long hair have unconventional facial bone structures and amanda doesn’t have the cookie cutter white girl face, her eyes and lips are very big with a prominent nose which makes her unique but very beautiful. and hmmm is right, she has been lucky to be a part of big hits like mean girls (which she was really good in) and les mis and mama mia (she has had vocal training over the years) but she is average at best with acting but she gives out positive vibes in movies so i don’t mind her sticking around.

  • @hmmm

    @hmmm: Oh please this B rate movies is so old news,is Mamma mia,dear john and les miserables B movies in your opinion than what are your A movies sir ? maybe a stupid super hero movie or a dumb franshise like hunger games or twilight ? you’re just an ignorant teenager who knows nothing about movies and pretends to know a lot.
    and just so you know she’s in high demand more than any other actress she’s in A million ways which is highly anticipated this summer and she’s in noah baumbach’s next movie the director of the critically acclaimed “frances ha” and then she’ll start next to russel crowe in “fathers and daughters” and “Ted 2″ and joe wiright’s remake of peter pan.
    So next make you make your research ! ignorant bastard.

  • mandy

    So she spends her days looking at online comments of herself, looks for pictures of herself, then looks in the mirror and ponders her supermodel potential? She’s clearly in love with herself.

  • witch

    @:): plz, are you his personal stylist? I agree her eyes are big but I don’t see a prominent nose or big lips :s

  • Cate

    Amanda is gorgeous and even thought I think she overshares a lot she comes across as one of the most genuinely honest actresses without all that patronising gee, I’m so goofy and just like you guys kind of hype machine we get from Jennifer Lawrence’s PR team.

  • samuel

    @Cate: Amen ! i couldn’t agree more….

  • NYC

    A natural beauty and great actress.
    End of story.
    I love her.

  • bla

    She’s rather a victim of her own stupidity. At least she’s self-aware of her own body. Her boobs are already saggy as seen in Lovelace just as her ass and her legs are shapeless. Her acting is mediocre at best.
