In an interview with the Examiner, Amanda Seyfried admits she’s “not naturally thin,” and goes to extremes to make sure she gets acting work.
“I’m on a raw-food diet,” says Seyfried. “It’s intense, and sort of awful. Yesterday for lunch? Spinach and some seeds… If I didn’t run and work out, there’s no way I would be this thin. But I have to stay in shape because I’m an actress.” She adds: “It’s fucked up and twisted, but I wouldn’t get the roles otherwise. If I had been bigger, I don’t think they would have cast me for Mamma Mia! “
Here’s the really depressing quote:
“I’m not a beautiful prom-girl type,” she has said. “It’s very easy for me to gain weight. Even though I tried not eating for a week when I was really young, I couldn’t do it any longer because I liked my food too much.”
Oh honey. It’s not that you “liked food too much,” it’s that NOT EATING FOR A WEEK IS FUCKING INSANE. Also, it’s called “starvation.”
