NEWSFLASH: New Girl Crush
Newsflash! Britney Spears and Drew Barrymore are old news. (I still love them though.)
I have found a new celeb to attach my affections to; a girl who seems like a better version of myself, yet who is somehow still “just like us!” But really, I appreciate her honesty.
GLAMOUR: So how do you define glamour?
AMANDA SEYFRIED: Hmm…glamour—something that is beautiful, inspired and…real.
GLAMOUR: I love that!
AMANDA SEYFRIED: It sounds like a lot of B.S.! [Laughs.]
GLAMOUR: No! It’s true: There are beautiful people out there who are not necessarily real. What’s been your most glam moment?
AMANDA SEYFRIED: The Mamma Mia! premiere in London. It was the world premiere of the one project that was going to change my life. I was wearing Miu Miu, and I needed to look amazing, because I was starting to really fall in love with my boyfriend [actor Dominic Cooper, her costar in that movie]. I wanted him to see how glamorous I could be.
GLAMOUR:: You guys look like a glamorous couple—don’t you feel like one?
AMANDA SEYFRIED: When I’m in my pajamas on Skype with him? There’s nothing glamorous about us except when people are dressing us.
GLAMOUR: How does he make you feel glamorous?
AMANDA SEYFRIED: I don’t think you can get it from a man. He says wonderful things to me…but it comes from inside.
GLAMOUR: How do you stay so grounded?
AMANDA SEYFRIED: Maybe people [in Hollywood] wear really nice clothes, and they drive really nice cars—but that doesn’t make me comfortable. And if I’m not comfortable, it won’t be a part of my life. There’s something empty about having your own VIP booth, and people staring at you, drinking and dancing—to get to what? To get drunk and sleep with somebody? I did that once. I went to a party and—this was a long time ago—I was so drunk that I ended up taking this person home and not remembering anything.
AMANDA SEYFRIED: And I woke up the next morning, and I was like, Who am I? I am not this person, I didn’t enjoy that, I wish it could all go away…. So I stopped going out.
GLAMOUR: Do you not go out?
AMANDA SEYFRIED: It’s sad, actually, because my anxiety keeps me from enjoying things as much as I should at this age.
GLAMOUR: Really? I know a lot of young women suffer from anxiety. It’s brave of you to talk about it.
AMANDA SEYFRIED: [I take] pills, long-term pills, Lexapro. It makes me tired all the time. Anxiety, it just stops your life….
GLAMOUR: Do you have panic attacks?
AMANDA SEYFRIED: [Inhales deeply.] I do. It feels like you’re going to die. There’s nothing scarier.
