Was it because of ‘Mama Mia’ that she got exited from ‘Big Love’? Well, the Hollywood’s most established performer has come up with an explanation for this unresolved question.
As far as her film career is concerned, It’s no secret Amanda Seyfried has an impressive list of acting credits. From playing Cosette in the 2012 adaptation of Les Misérables to portraying Karen Smith in the 2004 movie Mean Girls, she’s taken on a number of beloved roles over the years. But if she had to choose just one cast to spend the rest of her life with, it would be the stars of Mamma Mia!
Recently , when ‘Mamma Mia’ sequel ‘Mamma Mia Here We Go Again’ was scheduled for production, the actress smae up with novel ideas and suggestions.
“Someone asked me the other day, ‘What movie should be made of the making of one of your movies?'” the actress said. “And I was like, ‘We need to make a making of Mamma Mia! movie.’ Because if you want a real escapism, that would be it.”
When it comes to ‘Big Love’ the recent reports says that the actress has left the project. Big Love was critically acclaimed throughout its run, earning nominations and some wins at multiple awards shows. However, Seyfried left the series after season 4 in order to focus on her movie career.
Here’s why Amanda Seyfried left ‘Big Love’!
She took a moment to explain the reasoning behind her decision to leave Big Love in 2009, discussing how the success of Mamma Mia! played a role:
‘I had gotten Mamma Mia! and I had shot Mamma Mia! with the same people that produced Big Love, Playtone. There was just not enough work to make it make sense. The story wasn’t about me, and that’s fine. It was always an ensemble and mostly surrounded the wives. Those are the meaty parts. Not to say that I didn’t have some fantastic writing and some fantastic scenes and storylines. Big Love is really important to me and important for my career. But by the end, it was just like, ‘I can’t hold babies anymore. I have to capitalize on this moment!’
While Big Love was well-known, a major blockbuster is a different beast entirely. It made a wider audience aware of Seyfried as an actor, which provided leverage in her pursuit of more movie roles. As of now, Seyfried is focusing on her new project Mank, which tells the story of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he finishes up the Citizen Kane screenplay for Orson Welles. While it hasn’t officially been released yet, the movie—which also stars Gary Oldman, Lily Collins, Arliss Howard, Tom Pelphrey and Charles Dance—is already generating Oscar buzz.
Fans can stream Mank on Netflix starting Dec. 4.
