In a recent interview with Porter on August 9, the Dropout star explained that she was still forced to do nude scenes when she was young enough to keep working in the industry.
As a 19-year-old, you are kidding me? Before she gave up mock consideration, she said, and she wish her acting career would have started now, as intimacy coordinators become a new standard on the set and actors are able to talk up their experiences more thanks to the #MeToo movement.
Seyfried reflected on her Mean Girls appearance, particularly from men who sexualized the films punchline about her breasts being able to predict when it rains, in a May interview. I always felt truly grossed out by that. It was just disgusting.
Seyfried told Porter that she has since learned to stand up for herself while working on sets, even when she gets rejected for a job or something similar. When she meets someone who is younger, it crushes them completely for a minute. Im uncrushable! If anything happens to my life, it will not affect my family.
Now, the actor is grateful for her newfound respect she wants from her acting activities, and she only credits herself for this change, not her recent Oscar nomination for The Dropout. It's not because of Mank, but because of The Dropout, and it's not about having seen my films. Im so proud because I am 36 years old and I know who the f*** I am.
