Recently, Amanda revealed that she almost didn’t get certain roles because she didn’t fit Hollywood’s idea of skinny.

“Fun fact: I almost lost out on several roles in my career because I was overweight. Wrong, America,” she tweeted.

    How is she overweight omg……………..

  • JesChastain

    Yeah sure Amanda. Whatever you say.

  • Reebs

    She used to be a normal size, and I can see how that threw off the delusional casting directors in Hollywood. However, ever since Les Miserables, Amanda has most definitely conformed to the unrealistic expectations of the same people she is angry with.

  • Seyfried Fan

    she looks gorgeous no matter what !

  • ashknewit

    By HW standards, Kate Bosworth is just right and thin people like Seyfried are inching towards being overweight. I think Seyfried said she had to live on spinach for some weeks while shooting a film. The honest ones talk about how hard it is. The only ones who aren’t constantly on a diet are people like Nicole Kidman who are naturally built like a surfboard.

  • SAY IT AS IT IS

    How is America wrong for the aliens who cast her in these alien movies. Hypocritical alien POS!!

  • dalovelee

    She is no way is overweight and never looked that way…if she wasn’t getting cast in parts I would say it’s because of her acting or her distinctive big eyes that may put casting people off..But I’m leaning towards it was her acting. In a sea of young blonde actresses of Hollywood..I am sure there are no shortage of talented blonde actresses.

  • Seyfried Fan

    Amanda is a standout ! she’s a very good actress for all i know !

  • Living in a box

    Wait,what? Overweight? How? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zODNDUY4mMc

    Why is she blaming America?? She should blame the industry SHE chose to work in. She should blame HER employers and stop projecting her worldview onto the country-at-large. Even better: Shut up complaining. She lives a life of privilege most of us can only dream of. SHUT UP.

  • whatever

    shes not fat! that’s crazy!!!

  • FerCat

    Okay, she’s likely referring to her early ‘Big Love’ days. There were some scenes there which you can tell she was more robust. I recall that she nearly lost out on Mama Mia because of it and that was a very big deal. She had to lose a lot of weight quickly and she suffered for it. There was one scene where you could see the effect.

    Opinions on women’s sizes have changed since 2007, with girls like Melissa McCarthy and Rebel Wilson now openly accepted for leads.

    Frankly speaking, people who don’t like to talk about their weight loss are likely people who use less savory methods to achieve it.

    One other thing, Amanda Seyfried can’t just gain weight haphazardly because it makes her face look even more cherubic. Which is bad if you want to be diverse.

  • FerCat

    She has a very peculiar sense of time.

  • Cate

    The weight expectations placed on young actresses are so sad. Amanda definitely used to be more curvy and she lost quite a bit of weight a few years ago (she seems to be a more natural weight now though) so the criticism must have got to her which is a shame because she is gorgeous and a good actress.
