Amanda Seyfried recalls doing nude scenes at 19:
‘I wanted to keep my job’
Amanda Seyfried skyrocketed to fame in the mid-2000s with roles in “Mean Girls” and “Veronica Mars”
Now 36 years old, the actress recalled the start of her career, calling out one uncomfortable incident in which she was naked on set as a teen
“Being 19, walking around without my underwear on – like, are you kidding me? How did I let that happen?” Seyfried told Porter magazine without divulging which role it was
“Oh, I know why: I was 19 and I didn’t want to upset anybody, and I wanted to keep my job. That’s why.”
However, the “Mamma Mia” star said she emerged from Hollywood’s pre-#MeToo time “pretty unscathed.”

Her character, Karen Smith, famously believed that she could predict the weather by holding up her breasts
“I always felt really grossed out by that,” Seyfried noted.
“I was like 18 years old.
It was just gross.”
Her worries were avoided when she scored the role of Sarah Henrickson in the 2006 HBO drama “Big Love.”
“I remember for one movie — I can’t say the name — it was between me and some model for a kind of ancillary character,” she recalled.
“Luckily, I then had opportunities that went a different way pretty quickly, and I’m grateful for that,” Seyfried added
