Amanda Seyfried has an admirable resumé – she managed to turn her soap opera beginnings into a diverse movie star career full of low budget and big studio films. Even though she accepts some challenging, independent roles, she’s more famous for her romantic comedies (Mamma Mia!, Dear John) and explains that basically, she just does those for the paycheck.
In a recent Vanity Fair interview Seyfried explained her method for choosing roles, saying that it’s hard to say no to a rom-com because “they pay a lot of money. Sometimes, when you want to buy an apartment in Manhattan, you gotta do one or two. . .. It’s making movies for a different reason: for money. And that’s all great. We all want money. I mean, I love my apartment in New York.” She later added that the only other reasons she’d do a big-budget film are “[If] you have a kid, and then, you need a bigger apartment. Or like, I don’t know, if your dog is sick, and you need to pay for surgery.” At least she’s honest. Also, we don’t have pets, just how much does dog surgery cost, anyway? [Photo: Getty Images]
