Amanda Seyfried Says Trump Being Elected Inspired Her to Get Married

Amanda Seyfried is opening up to Elle UK about how Trump getting elected lead to her decision to get married to husband Thomas Sadoski.

The 32-year-old Mamma Mia actress is on the cover of the mag’s July 2018 issue. Here is what she shared:

On gun laws: “What exactly are you protecting? At this point, I actually demand a reason as to why people believe that assault rifles should be sold in Walmart. Why do you need an assault rifle? Arming teachers? Teachers are not security guards. Teachers are not bodyguards. They are f**king teachers. They’re there to educate. F**k you. Kids are being killed. And they keep saying, ‘It’s not the guns that kill people, It’s the mental illness.’ Well then, let’s talk about mental illness.”

On her decision to marry actor Thomas Sadoski: “It was one of those things where Trump had gotten elected, the world was going mad, and I was like, ‘This is a dream I might never wake up from. If that’s the case, let’s just get married.’”

On Motherhood helping her to develop a new love for what she does: “Things are better now I’m older, rather than as a teenager, when I was treated terribly: ‘Oh, you’re in your 30s now? I guess I can trust your opinion, or trust you’ll show up to work on time,’ even though I’ve never, ever been late, even as a 15-year-old. But I feel like now I have a kid, it just goes without saying that I’m responsible… I learned after having a child: not to take things so personally, because it’s such a waste of time.”
