I suppose we haven’t really been paying enough (or any) attention lately to Amanda Seyfried, because she’s feeling the need to show off a bit in her new interview with W Magazine, claiming that she just loves sex scenes and especially loved kissing Megan Fox in Jennifer’s Body because it was “sexy”. Girl, stop trying to make yourself happen. You ain’t happening.
“[Megan Fox and I] kissed really well together. We have similar kissing styles. If I watch the scene, it’s actually really sexy. We got it done for the masses, and, sadly, the masses didn’t show up.”
“I love acting like I’m in love! Sex scenes are great. A lot of my co-stars have been sexy guys my age who are really respectful and cool. So, why not? I’m not going to pretend it’s not fun.”
Here’s the thing: I generally never minded Amanda Seyfried. She’s certainly not an amazing actress, but she’s not a bad one and is relatively unoffensive. However, this whole thing just reads like she’s intentionally aiming for being salacious and ends up coming off as… desperate. To seem edgy, to seem “cool”, SOMETHING. And it just isn’t working.
Who knows – maybe she does genuinely enjoy sex scenes? Sure, why not. But bringing that up in a magazine just makes you seem… I dunno, contrived. Like you’re trying too hard to show off how down-to-earth and relatable you are. ‘Cos come on, ladies – who wouldn’t have fun when you get to kiss hot guys all day?!?!?! Am I right?!?!?!
Argh, Amanda Seyfried.
