Amanda Seyfried reveals that she is offered more interesting roles the older she gets.
Although actresses from a certain age often have a harder time in Hollywood, the ‘Mamma Mia!’ actress only report positive things. “The older I get, the better the roles become, which wasn’t the case before. Once you have a baby, you are no longer the naïve girl. Now I get to play mothers who are naturally more interesting to me,” explains the 35-year-old, who is raising two children together with her husband Thomas Sadoski.
In addition, the blonde beauty is now more picky about her film projects. “It’s changing. It’s a little more specific now that I’m older. I want to be in the hands of a great director. Obviously, it all starts with the script. It’s the foundation of the whole project,” Amanda explains in an interview with the ‘Awards Circuit’ podcast. “It has to be interesting, at least to the point where it makes sense.” In the meantime, she has a good sense of which project she is addressing and which is not. “I hate reading. I’m an auditory person and I know within the first ten pages of the script if I want to be part of it,” says the actress, who was nominated for an Oscar for her new film ‘Mank’.
