“Everything was a miracle at that point,” she included. “I was seventeen.”

Seyfried shared that she was “too excited” to be playing Karen Smith to be worried, although the experience was intimidating due to the fact that she had actually just ever remained in daytime drama at that point.

“To play somebody who’s kind of out to lunch is so much more fun than I could have imagined.”

The ‘Mean Girls’ Scene Male Fans Would Referral

Karen Smith has a number of unforgettable scenes in Mean Ladies, amongst them when she attempts to put her whole fist in her mouth and when she shows up at the Halloween celebration using mouse ears: “I’m a mouse, duh.”

Nevertheless, there was one specific scene that male fans would regularly raise when they fulfilled her personally, and it left her sensation very unpleasant.

The scene in concern is when Karen informs Cady that her breasts “can always tell when it’s going to rain.” Later on in the movie, Karen gets a task doing the early morning weather forecast, and squeezes her breasts prior to informing the audiences, “It’s 68 degrees, and there’s a 30 percent chance that it’s already raining.”

She wasn’t frequently approached by fans due to the fact that, at that point, Mean Ladies was among the couple of significant tasks she’d belonged to. However when she was approached, it was generally by male fans, and they would constantly raise that scene.

Not surprisingly, this left Seyfried went nuts. “I always felt really grossed out by that,” she exposed in an interview with Marie Claire. “I was like 18 years old. It was just gross.”

How Does Amanda Seyfried Feel About Popularity Now?

In her interview with Marie Claire, Seyfried confessed that she still discovers popularity “weird”, particularly now that she is more widely known than she was when she did Mean Ladies.

“Fame is weird,” she informed the publication. “I’ve never been super famous. I’ve always been somewhat recognizable. It’s been the healthiest trajectory. [It’s] not a scary spike. I have my priorities. I know who I am. I know where I’m going. I know what it means. It means that I’m getting to do what I love.”

She likewise exposed that she’s grateful she was never ever very popular when she was young.

“I think being really famous [young] must really f—— suck. It must make you feel completely unsafe in the world. I see these younger actors who think they have to have security. They think they have to have an assistant. They think their whole world has changed. It can get stressful. I’ve seen it happen to my peers.”
