Seyfried: Les Mis made me famous

Amanda Seyfried has admitted she didn't feel famous until Les Miserables.

The 28-year-old has been appearing in movies and on television since she was in her teens, but doesn't think people knew who she was until she played Cosette in the 2012 film.

"I don't think I was really famous until last year - and I felt like no one paid much attention to what I was doing. That was good," the Mean Girls star told W magazine.

"But Les Mis was an international hit, and that changed things.

"Before, I was a little more anonymous."

Amanda also revealed she wasn't sure about acting until she starred in the TV series Big Love, a role she had from 2006 until 2011, saying it "cemented" her feelings about the profession.

"Acting kind of bit me in the butt," said the actress.

"On Big Love, I realised that I didn't want to lose this thing that I had stumbled into. Now, I'm at the mercy of my calling. I was lucky back then and a little naive. Now I'm addicted. Addicted and scared but never bored. I get to be other people all the time, and there is nothing dull about that."

Amanda can next be seen in Seth MacFarlane's Western comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West.
