Amanda Seyfried spent ‘the only money I had’ on her premiere costumes for ‘Mean Girls.’
That’s not at all appealing.
Amanda Seyfried reflected on her early career and the “Mean Girls” premieres she went on her own, without the assistance of any stylists.
The “Dropout” actress told Jimmy Kimmel that she chose her own gowns and performed her own makeup for the 2004 red carpets.
“I didn’t have a stylist, so I bought a dress with the only money I had,” the 36-year-old actress explained. I had to buy two outfits since there were two premieres, and you have to wear separate dresses.”
Kimmel groaned as she revealed photographs of her two awful early-aughts red carpet costumes. “Because I didn’t know the regulations, I wore a white bra, black panties, and no-slip.” I paid $600 for it.
She was a soap star on “As the World Turns” and “All My Children” before becoming a teen drama superstar. She also appeared in print ads for Limited Too alongside Leighton Meester, was a cover model for the “Sweet Valley High series” books, and was a soap star on “As the World Turns” and “All My Children,” though “Mean Girls” was her first film role.
Because of the costs, she quipped that she “couldn’t even afford a ride home.” Fortunately, the premiere was in New York, so she was able to walk.
When questioned why she didn’t ask for premiere clothing from the studio, she responded that she “didn’t ever ask anything because I believed I was in the way” at the time.
She now claims it’s “not the way I want to raise my kid” as a mother of two.
