Amanda Seyfried graces the cover of May's Allure Magazine, which is also its annual Look Better Naked issue. Amanda has gained notoriety for her turn in Les Misérables and was a red-carpet fixture during award-season festivities. Next up, she's starring in The Big Wedding alongside Topher Grace, Robert De Niro, and Katherine Heigl. In the publication, which hits newsstands April 22, Amanda flaunts her figure in a low-cut floral dress and gets candid about body confidence, singing live in Les Misérables, and portraying pornographic actress Linda Lovelace in her upcoming biopic. Here's more from Amanda Seyfried in Allure:
- On playing Linda Lovelace: "Maybe this is backwards, but because she found the power in herself and in her body at a point, it made me feel comfortable in my own skin in a way that I hadn't been."
- The advice she was given by her vocal coach for Les Mis: "'Imagine deep-throating a penis, get that feeling in the back of your throat, and then sing. That's where your larynx is.'"
- On her breasts: "I saw a picture of them a couple of days ago from when I was 19, and my boobs were way bigger. . . . There was something so beautiful about the size of them. When I look back, I'm like, 'Why did I always give myself such a hard time?' Nobody gave me sh*t about it except me."
- On a reporter assessing that she has the "face of an extraterrestrial": "I like that. I'd rather not be ordinary-looking. I want something different about me. We all want to be originals."
