We Are All Slowly Killing Amanda Seyfried (PHOTOS)
Here is a piece of revelatory news: Hollywood stars do unhealthy things to their bodies to stay thin! And actress Amanda Seyfried is no exception, saying she maintains a grueling workout schedule and eats a raw food diet all for the sake of getting those coveted “skinny girl” roles (also known in Hollywood as “any role”). The actress told Glamour magazine about her slowly deteriorating body image:
If I didn’t run and work out, there’s no way I would be this thin [...] But I have to stay in shape because I’m an actress. It’s f****d up and it’s twisted, but I wouldn’t get the roles otherwise. If I’d been a bit bigger, I don’t think they would have cast me for Mamma Mia!
It is no secret that actresses and actors are held to higher beauty standards than us normal, obese monsters, but actresses literally starving themselves because they can’t get jobs otherwise says something kind of scary about our society. Seyfried maintains a raw food diet which she calls “intense” and “sort of awful.” As the name suggest, the diet involves not eating anything cooked, so basically all she can eat is salad and more salad. Sounds, um, delicious! And also horrifying. Really, really horrifying.
