Amanda Seyfried doesn't give her best
Amanda Seyfried "rarely" gives her best in movies and finds working on stage much harder
Amanda Seyfried "rarely" gives her best in movies.
The 29-year-old actress is currently starring in off-Broadway show 'The Way We Get By' and admits she works much harder on stage than on screen.
She said: "You can hide laziness in film, you can't hide on stage.
"You don't want to do that to people who have spent $100-400 on a ticket. You want to tell the story.
"I don't want to give anything but my best, and in films I rarely give my best."
And Amanda admits working in theatre is "tough" and requires a lot of sacrifices.
She said: "It's making me re-evaluate my ideas about where I thought I wanted my career to go.
"The theatre world is tough and you have to be willing to sacrifice a lot.
"Nobody has a personal life. It's hard to focus on anything else. I don't have time for hobbies, I barely have time for the gym and every meal I have is at the theatre.
"When I do movies, I usually knit. I also paint, but between these shows I'm either napping or meditating."
The blonde beauty also expressed her frustration at how her movie 'Lovelace' - a biopic of porn star Linda Lovelace - wasn't a box office smash, but she is very proud of the film.
She told Britain's Marie Claire magazine: "I was very frustrated by that. But I don't have any control once I've finished shooting and everyone has their own vision.
"That said, I still think it's the best thing I've ever done in terms of I respect the work I did in it - and I'm pretty self-deprecating for an actress. Playing someone else is really hard."
