Amanda Seyfried Opens Up About Anxiety And Beauty

Amanda Seyfried has had entropy and death on the mind lately, but then again, haven't we all?

The newly engaged and newly pregnant 30-year-old actress sat down with New York Magazine recently, and things got pretty real.

Amanda recently became the face of the new Givenchy fragrance, Live Irrésistible Délicieuse, so she has been doing the press rounds to promote it.

But the conversation with interviewer Kathleen Hou quickly turned to beauty routines and the concept of "anti-aging."

It was in this context that Amanda Seyfried said,

We are all dying. We're all marching towards death.

This is probably my favorite Amanda Seyfried quote of all time.

Not that I can think of any other Amanda Seyfried quotes, really, but from this day forward, "We're all marching towards death," will definitely be my number one.

In fact, I'm going to start using it in my everyday life.

Where do you want to go to dinner? Who cares? We're all marching towards death.

Like that.


Anyways, on a more serious note, the actress also opened up about her struggles with mental health, after recently speaking about her decision to take OCD medication in an Allure interview.

She told NY Mag,

I've suffered massively because I felt alone, crazy, and like I was stuck in this hole. I didn't understand because I was too fucking young. I took that on for my teenage years. And I had a pretty healthy childhood. ... But I was haunted by my OCD and it would flare up and affect all aspects of my life.

Amanda went on to urge others to seek help if they are going through a similar illness, which she says is the reason she speaks so openly about it.

She said,

When you're having crazy fears, obsessive thoughts, weird compulsions, and you don't understand why and you think you're broken, it just festers. It's a horrible thing. It's really important for young people to hear other people talk about their experiences in a way that sheds light on them. I do have a platform and sometimes things I say, people listen to.
