Amanda Seyfried on Hollywood Pressure: It's Effed Up!

by at . Comments

Attention, Kim Kardashian: This is how you avoid being a hypocrite.

Simply speak the consistent truth, explaining how you feel pressure to keep a thin figure because that's what Hollywood executives are looking for. Then, curse the system.

That's what Amanda Seyfried has done, as she says it takes "a hell of a lot of work" to keep off the pounds. She adds that her body is "always on my mind" and:

"If I have to diet, it's salad with protein, salmon and broccoli, no dessert. But what kind of life is that? So I work out a lot and I'm just pretty moderate about what I eat."

The movie star and former Big Love cast member says that such an obsession is simply, sadly part of her job description.

"I have to stay in shape because I'm an actress. It's f-cked up and it's twisted, but I wouldn't get the roles otherwise. If I'd been bigger, I don't think they would have cast me for Mamma Mia!"

Off Big Love

You know, being skinny is not what we should be portraying to the next gen. Kim has a comfortable body and there is nothing wrong with that. She represents what woman should be with working out and accepting what their physique is at. Don't portray to the upcoming generations that "thin is it" because its not. Curves is always more attractive than a flat board, thin lizzy individual that wear shoes that look like"Minnie Mouse" hand me downs. Just an opinion from an individual that feels woman should not short sell what they represent as a woman.


Amanada is so refreshing!! I wish all hollywood celebs would be more honest about their REAL diet and exercise regime.
People would respect them more for their honesty, and I think you might see some changes in what is expected of women if they would all open up about what they have to do to stay thin and get work. they all lie about it, and it's clearly a situation that anyone with half a brain can deduce.
nice to see a young girl who is smart and bold enough to call it as she sees it. she just earned a lot of points in my book. yay Amanda!!!
