Actor Amanda Seyfried is styled by Tonne Goodman in Mario Testino’s cover story ‘A Place in the Sun’ for Vogue US June 2015. / Hair by Christiaan; makeup by Val Garland.
Seyfried is working on a new play ‘The Way We Get By’ by Neil LaBute and directed by Leigh Silverman. The live performance is a huge action for Amanda who shares insights into the paralyzing fear she’s experienced before any kind of audience. Writes Vogue:
A few years ago, she famously downed a couple of shots of Jameson to calm her nerves before going on Letterman and appeared drunk on TV. “It made it fun for me,” she says, “but then I watched it and was like ‘That is not what I want to promote about myself.’ ” Soon after, she started seeing a shrink to help get over her debilitating fear. “I have a lot of anxiety that I’ve been struggling with my whole life,” she says. “So I have been working through it. I’m terrified, but this is exactly what I wanted.”
Amanda Seyfried plays a lawyer in TED 2, a comedy with Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg, opening in June.
