We've been in love with Amanda Seyfried since Mean Girls, and whether it's a sexy photo shoot or a refreshingly honest interview, she never fails to impress us.
The actress recently sat down with AOL's StyleList, and she chats candidly about the pressure to stay thin in Hollywood. Amanda says, "I'm in my mid-20s and I know how to look after my body on my own. I'm not going to deny that I don't think about it every day, it's always on my mind. I clearly like being fit, but it's not thin without a hell of a lot of work - I run and I exercise a lot and then I eat."
After discussing her highly restrictive raw diet in the April issue of Esquire, the starlet wants to clear the air about her eating habits and her own battle to maintain a healthy body. Amanda admits that she occasionally does a raw food cleanse, but most of the time she eats what she wants and hits the gym to stay in shape. "If I have to diet, it's salad with protein, salmon and broccoli, no dessert," she says. "But what kind of life is that? So I work out a lot and I'm just pretty moderate about what I eat."
While Amanda's outlook on nutrition and fitness is certainly a healthy one, she reveals that she's not immune to the pressure to stay a certain dress size if she wants to get work. "I have to stay in shape because I'm an actress," she says. "It's f*cked up and it's twisted, but I wouldn't get the roles otherwise. If I'd been bigger, I don't think they would have cast me for Mamma Mia!"
