Amanda Seyfried, the girl who once used her boobs to predict the weather, is now hoping that those very boobs aren’t the reason that her career goes kaput following the release of her new movie, Lovelace. So far, Amanda’s enjoyed a comfortable amount of success for her roles as the dimpled girl next door in movies like Mamma Mia!, Dear John, and Les Misérables. But, then, one day, Amanda decided that she’d had enough of making the parents of tween girls feel safe sending their daughters to see her movies and theatrically ripped off her top Superman-style. Figuratively speaking, of course.
So what’s a girl who pays the bills by being adorable and wide-eyed to do when she’s got an itch to take a more scandalous role? She frets, that’s what she does. Huffington Post reported that, in an interview with The Sunday Times, Amanda expressed concern about the safety and future of her career.
“This is the riskiest thing that’s happening in Hollywood right now. The first thing you think about is that it could ruin my career.”
I mean, aside from the hyperbole that doing a movie about porn is the riskiest thing that’s happening in Hollywood, Amanda should probably take a chill pill or seven. Sure, the end of her career could be the first thing that some people think about. Like, maybe her mom or her fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Memorize Your Times Table. But, —and I’m sorry to have to be the one to rain on her worry parade here— mostly everyone has seen boobs before. Big boobs, small boobs, man boobs, dog boobs and, most of all, actress boobs. Graduating from safe to scandalous roles is a natural thing that occurs in every little actor and actress’ life. Just ask Miley Cyrus who has recently discovered that she, in fact, cannot stop. She can’t stop wearing panties without pants over them and she certainly can’t stop pretending to not know One Direction.
So, really, Amanda, trust me when I say that you can stop watching your career’s back. You can look forward to nights full of sleep and free of anxiety henceforward because you probably haven’t done anything to jeopardize your career. If anything, now you’ll be getting more of the roles that you’re obviously into instead of suffering the fate of those actresses who end up playing 16 year-olds for the rest of their lives.
