Gorgeous actress Amanda Seyfried is not afraid to speak up about doing what she thinks is equitable and right when it comes to her career.
In an interview with The Sunday Times: “A few years ago, on one of my big-budget films, I found I was being paid 10% of what my male co-star was getting, and we were pretty even in status.
I think people think, because I’m easygoing and game to do things, I’ll just take as little as they offer.
But it’s not about how much you get, it’s about how fair it is.
You have to decide if you’re willing to walk away from something, especially as a woman.”
And in a cover story with Marie Claire UK:
“After Mean Girls I kept getting scripts for big-boobed blonde idiots.
I could have so easily been Karen Smith my whole career.
I realized that if I really wanted to work forever I was going to have to make the right decisions.…
That’s why I’ve made some tough decisions too, I’ve turned down some pretty big stuff [including some big blockbuster roles.]
I didn’t want to be an action hero or in a fucking green suit for like, ten years, because I don’t want to be miserable.
I think happiness comes from being free.”
