Amanda Seyfried talks about the disturbing comments she received from fans after Mean Girls
Amanda Seyfried shot to fame as ‘Mean Girls” resident airhead Karen Smith, but she also had to actively evade the ‘dumb blonde’ Hollywood niche as a result. As Seyfried told Variety earlier this year, the lead role in the 2006-2011 HBO series about a polygamous family, “Big Love,” was one of several strategic career choices she made after “Mean Girls.” “In 2004, I had to be very careful not to just be ‘the pretty blonde,'” Seyfried said. “So at the very beginning of my career, if I hadn’t been doing ‘Big Love’ I would have been Karen Smith.”
The specter of her ‘Mean Girls’ role loomed, so Seyfried claimed she couldn’t get auditions for lead roles after the film’s release. “All the auditions I had for my first pilot season were just blonde girlfriends,” she said. Of course, Seyfried has since established himself as a versatile Hollywood player with very diverse roles in movies like “Jennifer’s Body”, “Les Misérables”† and love”.
Finally, when he landed the lead role of a show in Hulu’s “The Dropout,” Seyfried recently reflected on fame and the negative aspects of being known as Karen Smith.
Amanda Seyfried Got Creepy Comments From Fans After Mean Girls
While Filming “Mean Girls” Almost 20 Years Ago, Amanda Seyfried Probably Didn’t Anticipate this one scary comment she would get from fans after the release. In an interview in May with Marie Claire, Seyfried revealed that moviegoers (mainly male) would recognize her and ask if she, like her character Karen Smith, can use her breasts to predict upcoming weather. This was especially true if it rained that day. “I always felt really bad about that,” Seyfried said. “I was about 18 years old. It was just disgusting.”
In the same interview, the “The Dropout” star described fame as “weird” and expressed gratitude for not being “super famous.” “I’ve always been somewhat recognizable,” Seyfried described her level of fame. “It’s been the healthiest trajectory.”
In a November 2020 profile by The New York Times, Seyfried shared the extra step she and husband Thomas Sadoski took to ensure her family’s privacy. Seyfried moved to a farm in upstate New York in 2013 and said rural life “has reinforced my need to be outside when I’m not working, being in nature, and freshening up.” The actor called it her “center of gravity” and added that farm life has “put just about everything else in perspective.”
