Seyfried’s been sort of a non-factor on this press tour. Not because of a lack of talent nor commitment on her part, but because everyone else in the film has been buried or drowned out by Hathaway’s desperation for an Academy Award nomination. Everything else becomes secondary and moot. Like her co-stars, Seyfried and Hugh Jackman (and others).
For her part, Seyfried says she would have shaved her head for Hathaway’s Fantine role too although she wouldn’t have starved on oatmeal paste as did Hathaway to lose so much weight so quickly.
On working with Channing Tatum in Dear John: “Channing was amazing. He’s a superstar. Everybody wants to have sex with him. And the only person he wants to have sex with is his wife, Jenna [Dewan-Tatum]. He’s the most loyal husband.”
On her unlucky love life: “I’m just more attracted to actors. I like their choice to be artists–that’s ballsy. And a guy who has such access to his emotional life is sexy… Maybe I’m so attracted to actors because I’m not ready for the ‘settled down’ thing yet. The thing is, I can’t date anybody without it being portrayed as a serious relationship in the tabloids. It sucks! Like Josh Hartnett and I were friends; we hung out, we dated. I don’t actually have sex with every male I come into contact with,” she says.
On whether she would have cut her hair for the Fantine role: “I would have done that for sure. I probably wouldn’t lose or gain weight for a role, though. I’m too health-conscious. And I don’t think I could actually lose weight because I couldn’t be on that kind of a diet. I would lose my mind.”
On going nude for Lovelace: “It’s not about my body. It’s not about me,” she says of doing nude scenes. “You’re playing somebody else. You’re not going to believe a love scene if the people are dressed. You’re not going to believe a stripper who has on a bra and underwear the whole time. At the same time, it has to do with how comfortable you are with letting people see your skin. For me, I’m okay with it.”
On taking Lexapro for her OCD: “I have to do lots of things at the same time. It’s an obsessive-compulsive thing,” says Seyfried, who takes Lexapro to control her OCD. (Example: When she’s on the elliptical machine at the gym, she’s also knitting, playing Soduku, and listening to music. “I don’t feel like I’m struggling with it. I think OCD is a part of me that protects me. It’s also the part of me that I use in my job, in a positive way. The only thing I’d like to get beyond is my fear of driving over bridges and through tunnels. I can’t overcome it.” - via InStyle Magazine.
