Just when you thought this Anne Hathaway scandal couldn’t get anymore sordid and twisted, Amanda Seyfried got involved. Yep, that Amanda Seyfried. TMZ caught up with her at the airport yesterday and asked her what she thought about her co-star going commando to the NYC premiere of Les Miserables.
She nonchalantly replied that it’s not a big deal because frankly, she only wears underwear because it keeps her warm. That’s all. It’s a coat for her crotch on a cold and blustery day. Why, if she lived in the tropics, she would never wear it. Because it’s stupid. Just thinking about it makes her laugh hysterically. Underwear! What a strange concept! Why the more you really think about the word, the more ridiculous it sounds. Why wear something that goes under your wear? No one can even see it.
As heartwarming as it is to see co-stars defending each other against ridiculous scandals that go on for too long, I don’t really understand why it had to end like this. Why couldn’t she tell everyone to stop bothering Anne Hathaway for a momentary mistake without throwing underwear under the bus. I’m sure the International Underwear Industry’s in full-on PR crisis mode right now trying to right this wrong and convince people that they’re a very necessary item of clothing. Maybe not at all times, but certainly at most times. At least during times when one’s exiting a car.
While I know that Amanda didn’t mean to insult the hundreds (thousands?) of people who wear underwear for non-vagina-coat reasons, It certainly came off like the ultimate diss. Some days, it would just be nice to wake up to a Hollywood that didn’t feel like a repeat of my middle school years. Maybe in 2013…
