The media can’t get enough of Amanda Seyfried. She’s been attracting attention for her latest films Lovelace and Les Miserables but she recently said she is most proud of Mean Girls.
“It’s been such a slow move for me,” she told IndieWire. “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."
At age eighteen Seyfried played Karen Smith in the teen film, a girl whose body parts predicted the weather. Seyfried portrayed the blond ditz of the group, starring alongside Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams.
“I was so innocent. I was so green,” Seyfried said. "I look back and I’m like, ‘Really, I thought I was doing a terrible job.’ But it was written so well and so wonderfully directed. [Director] Mark Waters made me look good; he made me funny. And Tina Fey wrote the coolest script of all time. I’m so grateful for every experience.”
Seyfried’s most recent buzz stems from her role of Cosette, the daughter of a prostitute in Les Miserables whose love story becomes an important plot point in the film, according to the LA Times.
