Amanda Seyfried shares The Dropout has seen a ‘spike’ in her fame

Amanda Seyfried has had an incredible year as she nailed the role of Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes in the Hulu series The Dropout.

And now she has told the June cover of Marie Claire’s that the added celebrity the role has brought her feels different.

‘Fame is weird,’ she told the magazine. ‘I’ve never been super famous. I’ve always been somewhat recognizable. It’s been the healthiest trajectory. [It’s] not a scary spike. I have my priorities. I know who I am. I know where I’m going. I know what it means. It means that I’m getting to do what I love.’

She added, ‘I’m actually not afraid of it now.’

Amanda was tapped by David Fincher to portray silent movie starlet Marion Davies in the 2020 Netflix movie Mank, a role which led to her first Oscar nomination. 

‘I got the call about The Dropout the day I got nominated,’ Amanda said. ‘Not a coincidence. I knew where that was coming from and I was f*****g grateful.’

In addition to nailing Holmes’ signature baritone voice, the actress said that achieving the disgraced Theranos founder’s appearance also a crucial part of her transformation in The Dropout.

‘The look was as essential as knowing how to do the voice,’ she said. ‘I get it. [Holmes didn’t] want to waste time on how she looks.

‘There’s a certain appreciation or acceptance of how she looks. She accepts it and enhances it slightly and then goes about her day. I don’t love wearing a lot of makeup [either].’ 

Amanda told Marie Claire that she was not sure if Holmes had yet watched the series about her dramatic rise and fall.

‘I’m not being told much because she’s smart… but …I was told she wasn’t gonna watch it, that it was bad news, and that she didn’t want any part of it,’ she said.

‘I don’t know if it’s totally true. Who knows? I’m a little skeptical of any information that comes my way.’ 

Savvy move considering Holmes has been found guilty on four charges of fraud when it comes to the now defunct Theranos.

Weird feel: Fame is weird,' she told the magazine. 'I've never been super famous. I've always been somewhat recognizable. It's been the healthiest trajectory. [It's] not a scary spike. I have my priorities. I know who I am. I know where I'm going. I know what it means. It means that I'm getting to do what I love'

Seyfried got a taste of how weird fame can be after she made Mean Girls with Lindsay Lohan.    

Amanda recalled how she was recognized every once in awhile after she appeared in the 2004 comedy.

She told Marie Claire that it was mostly boys who would ask her jokingly if it was raining as her character in the movie believed she could predict the weather with her breasts.

‘I always felt really grossed out by that,’ she admitted. ‘I was like 18 years old. It was just gross.’

The mother of two eventually bought a farm in the Catskills to establish a life away from the public eye.

‘I think being really famous [young] must really f*****g suck,’ Amanda said. ‘It must make you feel completely unsafe in the world. 

‘I see these younger actors who think they have to have security. They think they have to have an assistant. They think their whole world has changed. It can get stressful. I’ve seen it happen to my peers. 

‘So, I bought a farm. I was like, let’s go in the opposite way.’ 

Amanda, who shares daughter Nina, five, and son Thomas, one, with her husband Thomas Sadoski, 45, told Marie Claire that she trained to become a doula after experiencing childbirth.

‘I was like, This is the most amazing thing I’ve ever been a part of. I have to be there for women; childbirth is amazing,’ she said. ‘I was talking to my doula a lot about what she did. I was like, That sounds like the best thing, and I just wanted to be there when people have a baby.’ 

However, the actress eventually decided not to go through with the process as there were too many certifications and requirements.
