Amanda Seyfried Talks Dating Actors, Managing OCD With InStyle
Posted on December 30, 2012
Les Miserables star Amanda Seyfried, 27, graces the cover of the January 2013 issue of InStyle magazine. In the issue, Amanda talks about dating actors and managing her OCD with Lexapro.
On Dating Actors: "I can't date anybody without it being portrayed as a serious relationship in the tabloids. It sucks! Like Josh Hartnett and I were friends; we hung out, we dated. I don't actually have sex with every male I come into contact with... I'm just more attracted to actors. I like their choice to be artists - that's ballsy. And a guy who has such access to his emotional life is sexy. Or maybe because lots of the actors I know are so broken. I don't think I'm compatible with anybody I've dated."
On Taking Medication for OCD: "I'm too measured and controlling - about everything. That's why I take Lexapro. It's for OCD. I don't feel like I'm struggling with it. I think OCD is a part of me that protects me. It's also the part of me that I use in my job, in a positive way... I have to do lots of things at the same time. It's an obsessive-compulsive thing. So when I'm on the elliptical machine, which I do almost every day, I have to be knitting, playing Soduku, and listening to something."
