Amanda Seyfried Says She Doesn’t Want To Be Ordinary In Allure

I’ve loved Amanda Seyfried since her breakout role as Karen in Mean Girls. Every time I see her, whether it’s an interview or a movie role, I fall in love with her all over again. Homegirl just seems so genuine (Gurl editor Jess interviewed her once and confirmed she is “by far the coolest, most down to earth celeb ever.”) and continues to be a positive role model.

Well, now color me enamored because Amanda just took my breath away with her latest interview in Allure Magazine. She always struck me as someone who never got too caught up in how she looked, which I really appreciate in celebs. She’s not afraid to talk about her insecurities so that makes us feel better in a “Celebs, they’re just like us!” kind of way. But Amanda really is just like us!

In her interview, Amanda talks about how her boobs shrunk from a D to a C after losing weight, which she now regrets: “There was something so beautiful about the size of them. When I look back, I’m like, Why did I always give myself such a hard time?”

Her latest role of former pornstar, Linda Lovelace, helped her be more comfortable with her body, “I’ve got parts of me that I wish were tighter, but I don’t kill myself, because it’s not worth it.”

I love that she’s like, yeah I’m not perfect but so what? It’s so refreshing to hear a celeb say that! Those are the kinds of messages we need to hear on a regular basis, not the “Oh I’m on this cardboard diet” or whatever.

She gives us another little nugget when talking about being made fun of her pale skin (pale is totes beautiful, ladies!) “I’d rather not be ordinary looking. I want something different about me. We all want to be originals.”

THANK YOU. We are all different, and we are all beautiful. No one is perfect, not even the Amanda Seyfrieds of the world. Take heed to what Amanda is saying, stop giving yourself a hard time and give yourself a big old hug instead.

What do you think about Amanda’s comments? Does it make you feel better about yourself? Does it encourage you? Tell us in the comments!

    I seriously LOVE your articles high lighting positive aspects of celebrities. I think it’s very easy to get into a “celebrities have it all and therefore don’t know what real life is so I’m better than they are” mentality. But everyone has positive elements to them, it’s nice to see that. All people, even drop dead gorgeous celebrities, have awesome things about them besides their body. Love hearing about it!
