Amanda Seyfried Filmed Nude Scenes At 19 Because She “Didn’t Want To Upset Anybody” Or Lose Her Job



Amanda Seyfried was just a teenager when she first ventured into the limelight, beginning her career as a model before deciding to pursue acting at the age of 17.

She started out in soap operas like As the World Turns and All My Children, but got her big break when she was cast as Karen Smith in the 2004 movie Mean Girls.

Starring alongside Rachel McAdams and Lindsay Lohan, Amanda previously admitted that she “slipped through the cracks” while working on the film as she struggled to build up her self-esteem.

In fact, the actor recently told Jimmy Kimmel that she was so new to the industry when Mean Girls came out that she made a serious fashion faux pas at its premiere.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Amanda said that she didn’t realize until it was too late that the flashes from the cameras on the red carpet made her black dress see-through, exposing her underwear.

When asked why the movie studio didn’t help her with her premiere look, Amanda explained: “I slipped through the cracks because I didn’t ever ask for anything. Because I thought I was in the way, which is not the way I want to raise my daughter, for sure… But people liked me because I was easy.”

After Mean Girls, Amanda went on to star in movies such as American Gun and Alpha Dog, as well as 11 episodes of Veronica Mars.

More recently, Amanda earned an Emmy nomination for her performance as Elizabeth Holmes in the Hulu series The Dropout — one year after she received an Academy Award nomination for Mank.

Now 36, the star has reflected on the increased “respect” that she receives at work as she admitted to being much more confident while on set.

In a new interview with Porter, Amanda revealed that when she was first starting out in the industry, she would agree to remove her clothes on camera and film nude scenes so as not to upset anybody.

In fact, Amanda worried that she would be fired from the job if she expressed her discomfort, but ultimately told the publication that she came out of pre-#MeToo Hollywood “pretty unscathed.”

Discussing her approach when she was a young actor, Amanda said: “Being 19, walking around without my underwear on — like, are you kidding me? How did I let that happen?”

“Oh, I know why,” she added. “I was 19 and I didn’t want to upset anybody, and I wanted to keep my job. That’s why.”

Amanda did not specify which projects she was referring to, but she was 19 when Mean Girls came out and while filming episodes of All My Children.

Other movies and TV shows that she starred in around that time include Nine Lives, House, American Gun, and Alpha Dog.

Opening up about how her experience has changed over the past 17 years, Amanda told the publication: “There’s a respect level that I have never felt so fully around me. It has nothing to do with any level of fame or recognition or critical acclaim.”

“Whatever it is, it’s not because of Mank, it’s not because of The Dropout,” she went on. “It’s not about having seen my movies. I’m respected because I’m 36 years old and I know who the fuck I am.”

This isn’t the first time that Amanda has opened up about the early days of her career, and she previously revealed the “gross” reaction that her Mean Girls character prompted from men when she was still a teenager.

In the movie, Karen has a scene where she predicts the weather by groping her breasts. In May, Amanda told Marie Claire that all these years later, men still approach her and ask if it is raining — implying that they are thinking of her touching her breasts.

“I always feel really grossed out by that,” she explained. “I was like 18 years old. It was just gross.”

Amanda then added: “I think being really famous [young] must really fucking suck. It must make you feel completely unsafe in the world.”

There has been increased discussion about the way that young actors are treated while filming TV shows and movies in recent months, with Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney admitting that sex scenes on other sets made her feel “disgusting.”

“I’ve had experiences where I want to go home and scrub myself completely raw because I feel disgusting,” Sydney told the Independent. “I didn’t feel comfortable with my castmate or the crew, and I just didn’t feel like my character would be doing it.”

She went on to add that she “didn’t feel like [she] was able to speak up” and voice her concerns at the time.

And British star Kaya Scodelario, who shot to fame at the age of 14 in the gritty TV series Skins, admitted last month that “safeguarding wasn’t really a thing” when she and her costars filmed graphic sex scenes.

“It was a beautiful time but also the deep-rooted cause of a lot of my issues now,” she said of her time on the show in a TikTok post.

Meanwhile, Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean faced backlash earlier this month when he said that intimacy coordinators — people who ensure the well-being of actors and make sure that everyone is comfortable while filming intimate scenes — “spoil the spontaneity” of filming a sex scene.

“I think the natural way lovers behave would be ruined by someone bringing it right down to a technical exercise,” Sean told the Times. “It would inhibit me more because it’s drawing attention to things. Somebody saying, ‘Do this, put your hands there, while you touch his thing…'”

Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell might be thousands of miles apart this Christmas, but they are still very much on each other’s minds.

LATEST: Why Dianne Buswell and Joe Sugg are celebrating Christmas apart

Whilst gushing about his stay “at the amazing Court Farm”, a lovingly restored 16th Century farmhouse in Somerset, Joe sent Dianne a décor hint, revealing: “I kinda want our house to look like this!

Joe has travelled to Somerset to see family and friends

The gorgeous bedroom, as shown in a photo posted on his Instagram Stories, boasts a superking bed under a vintage chandelier, with an authentic barn door which opens onto a bathroom with both a huge walk-in shower and contemporary roll top bath.

Joe also praised the log burner, keeping him warm during his stay. “You cannot beat a good log burner this time of year,” he wrote.

The couple fell in love whilst taking part on Strictly Come Dancing

The theme would no doubt work well in Joe and Dianne’s country home in Sussex. The couple met on Strictly in 2018 and swapped their London flat for their first home together complete with a beautiful garden boasting uninterrupted country views.

Joe went on to reveal to his followers that he was visiting Lacock, a village in the county of Wiltshire.

“Forever grateful for this beautiful village where I grew up,” he said.

He then visited The Lacock Bakery and showed its gorgeous window display, which featured a copy of his book, Grow: How Nature Can Restore Balance in a Busy World.

“I used to go to this bakery as a toddler in my pushchair and now look! I left a special message in this book,” he remarked.

Hannah Hargrave

ABC star David Muir has long kept fans guessing about his personal life, refusing to share details online or across social media sites like many of his colleagues. But fans do know that David is still on the market and he’s not married, although it remains unclear if he is even dating.

Exclusive: Amy Robach’s ‘deceptive’ interview with Andrew Shue and T.J. Holmes revealed

In fact, as the video below explains, despite being connected to several other high profile TV personalities, there’s only one certain someone who does take up David’s time…

Despite numerous reports of romance for the World News Tonight anchor, David has always refused to publicly address his love life, but has been vocal about a number of leading ladies who he holds dear to his heart.

Kelly Ripa is one of those special people, so much so that the Live with Kelly and Ryan star paid a heartfelt tribute to David in her book, Live Wire.

An extract from the book – which is released on 27 September – was posted on Kelly’s Instagram Stories over the weekend, and the message is included on a page of acknowledgements.

It read: “To David Muir, you are the backbone and moral compass I need sometimes.”

Kelly and David have been close friends for years

His fellow ABC star, Amy Robach, is also a firm favorite of David’s and they have been known to spend time together both on and off-screen.

His sister, Rebecca, is close with David and he calls his many nieces and nephews his “squad,” and says he’s incredibly proud of all of them.

At home, it’s his beloved gun dog, Axel, who has his heart, as he regularly shares adorable photos with the pup, who he is clearly besotted with. 

That’s not to say he hasn’t had his fair share of marriage proposals though! Not a day goes by when he isn’t flooded with compliments from his adoring fans on social media. 

But alas, the dedicated journalist is practically married to his job, leaving little time for love!

A third shared their condolences while also wishing Al a speedy recovery, writing: “Sad news – wonderful legacy. I hope you are continuing to feel better and stronger. @todayshow is not the same without you.”

It’s been a particularly hard time for Al over the past few weeks, as not only has he been recovering after having blood clots on his lungs, but he also faced the devastating news that his sister Patricia had passed away shortly after he was discharged from hospital.

The TV star, who has been a part of Today for over 25 years, was admitted to the hospital shortly after Thanksgiving due to blood clots and remained hospitalized for over two weeks.

Al, who has taken an absence from the show ever since, gave an update to viewers from home last week. “It has been a tough slog. I’m not going to lie. It has been the hardest one yet and I’ve had my share of surgeries.

He continued: “I have a lot of things and people to be thankful for. It gives you a profound sense of gratitude for this outpouring of prayers and thanks.”
