Actress Amanda Seyfried has proven her ability to adapt to any range as an actress. From starring as one of the older siblings in a polygamist family in Big Love to her recent iconic role as Cosette, the daughter of a prostitute, in Les Miserables, in addition to taking on the role of abused adult film star Linda Lovelace, it seems the 27-year-old can do it all. Therefore, it is surprising to hear Seyfried call her role as the ditzy Karen Smith in Mean Girls her “best work.”
“I've just worked a long time. I've gotten a lot of cool opportunities here and there and I've made some good choices with the help of my amazing team.... I still look back at 'Mean Girls' as my best work,” Seyfried tells Indiewire following the debut of Lovelace at the Sundance Film Festival.
The blonde beauty has much to be proud of, as Harvey Weinstein is backing her newest project, Lovelace. “He doesn’t buy stuff he doesn’t like. I like his taste. The fact that he’s supporting it now is big for us. When he gets behind something it's one hundred percent. I really respect that about him,” she explains.
Since Mean Girls and into her more iconic roles, Seyfried has taken on smaller roles in Law & Order, House M.D., CSI among others before landing her role in the 2008 Mama Mia!.
Next up for Seyfried, she will star alongside Patrick Dempsey in the Christie Jeff directed film, Wonderful Tonight.
