Actress reveals she missed out on roles for being overweight


Amanda Seyfried has revealed that she almost lost out on numerous roles in Hollywood movies because she was deemed too overweight.

Yes, that’s right – Amanda Seyfried. Overweight!

The actress tweeted almost two weeks ago about the topic, but it has gone unnoticed until now: “Fun fact: I almost lost out on several roles in my career because I was overweight. Wrong, America.”

While she didn’t say which movies she had almost missed out on, Amanda’s biggest roles to date include Mean Girls, Les Misérables and Dear John – could it have been one of those?!

We’re glad Amanda realises just how wrong this is and hopefully she can help change the way Hollywood looks at actors’ weight in the future.
