Amanda Seyfried Filmed a Scene 'Maybe 200 Times' for 'Mank'

She described the experience as “the hardest [she’s] ever worked,” and said he made her shoot one scene approximately 200 times ”for an entire week.”

“I was part of scenes with tons of people in it and we would do it for an entire week. I can’t tell you how many takes we did, but I would guess 200, maybe. I could be wrong and could be way off,” she said.

“Um, I could be underestimating by five days of one scene when I didn’t have one line… ‘You think I can just relax?’ No, because there are probably about nine or 10 different camera angles that had been on me at one point.”
