Amanda Seyfried and quotes on People, Public, Voice
I’ve auditioned for roles that involved voice, but I don’t like it. I feel like, I can’t do this in front of you. It seems so separate – I don’t share it with a lot of people. And I’m not into public performances.
Amanda Seyfried and quotes on Love, Life, Acting, First, First love, Now, Singing, Voice
Singing was my first love and I never even considered it after I started acting, but now I’m bringing it back into my life. I trained from the ages of 11 to 17. When I moved to New York and got into serious acting, I just kind of abandoned the whole singing thing. But when I grew up in Pennsylvania I went to voice lessons once a week.
Amanda Seyfried and quotes on Jeans
I have jeans with holes in them and I have nice jeans. I have casual and I have dressy jeans. I’ve got all kinds.

You don’t have to listen to those mean girls. They’re just there to make you upset and make you feel bad about yourself. And you know, inside, they feel bad about themselves too. But they don’t wanna admit it to anybody.

Amanda Seyfried and quotes on Life, People, Famous, Friends, Job
It’s really easy to avoid the tabloids. You just live your life and don’t hang out with famous people who are in the tabloids. Don’t do anything controversial and be a normal person. Have friends. And get a job and keep working.

Intimacy is a wonderful thing. It’s frustrating that growing up I thought it was wrong. It isn’t. Exploring your sexuality is important when you’re growing up.
Amanda Seyfried and quotes on Music, Soul, Acting, Emotion, Emotions, Singing, Song
Singing is a way of releasing an emotion that you sometimes can’t portray when you’re acting. And music moves your soul, so music is the source of the most intense emotions you can feel. When you hear a song and you’re acting it’s incredible. But when you’re singing a song and you’re acting it’s even more incredible.
Amanda Seyfried and quotes on Poetry, Time, Confidence, Day, End, Guitar, Songs
I have written some songs, but I would really call what I’ve done poetry at the end of the day, because I’ll sit with my guitar for hours and hours on end for, like, a week and then I won’t touch it for a month. I also just have no confidence. And you know what? I don’t have time, because I’d rather be doing other things, like knitting.
Amanda Seyfried quote

Amanda Seyfried and quotes on Acting, Beginning, Fun, Interest, Theater
I did theater when I was nine, I think. Nine and ten, and that was just the beginning of my whole involvement in acting, my whole interest. I don’t really remember it that well. But it was really fun. I mean, it was exciting just to be on stage in front of an audience. It gives you a different kind of rush.

Hollywood is just like high school. The popular people only like the other popular people. And the thing is, some people aren’t nice – or they’re nice, but only to your face, not elsewhere.
Amanda Seyfried and quotes on Art, Ballet, Energy, School, Singing
I went to art school when I was little. I took ballet lessons. I played a little kick ball. I was sort of into everything because I had too much energy and I didn’t know where to put it. When I was a preteen, I got into singing, and became really obsessed with it.
Amanda Seyfried and quotes on Time, End, Events, Talk
I’m not really into clubbing, I like to go to parties after events, and those do end up at clubs or bars. But in my free time I go grocery shopping or to the gym, or I talk on the phone.
