Amanda Seyfried: Lohan was talented

Amanda Seyfried says Lindsay Lohan was "talented and bright eyed" when they worked together.

The actress starred alongside the troubled star in their hit 2004 film Mean Girls.

The 27-year-old greatly admired Lindsay, who played the film's lead Cady Heron, although the two weren't really friends.

"She's talented, [pause] was [another pause]," Amanda said to Allure magazine about Lindsay. "I mean, I don't know... She was so bright-eyed."

In the American teen comedy Amanda starred as Karen Smith, but it wasn't the role she really wanted.

She has been feverishly following news of a possible musical adaptation on Broadway, in the hope she'll get the chance to fulfil her dream Mean Girls part.

"I desperately want to be Regina, [played by Rachel McAdams]," Amanda confessed.

Amanda has since gone on to star in more serious dramatic movies such as Les Misérables.

The outspoken actress used her experience playing adult movie star Linda Lovelace in film Lovelace to help her singing performance in the musical adaptation. Portraying the risqué character has changed her in many ways since.

"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. I've got parts of me that I wish were tighter, but I don't kill myself, because it's not worth it," she explained.

The unique-looking blonde used to get teased for having pale skin. Amanda's perspective on beauty has changed as she's got older and she now embraces her individual looks.

"I'd rather not be ordinary looking. I want something different about me. We all want to be originals," she reflected.

"Actually, I saw a picture a couple of days ago from when I was 19, and my boobs were way bigger. They were a D, and now they're a small C, because I lost weight. 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?'"
