A few years ago, on one of my big budget films, I found I was being paid 10 per cent of what my male co-star was getting, and we were pretty even in status. I think people think that just because I’m easy going and game to do things, I’ll just take as little as they offer. It’s not about how much you get, it’s about how fair it is. You have to decide if you’re willing to walk away from something, especially as a woman.

“A few years ago, on one of my big-budget films, I found I was being paid 10 percent of what my male co-star was getting, and we were pretty even in status,” said Seyfried. The “Ted 2” declined to disclose which film she was referring to but has starred in a string of big blockbusters over the past few years, including “Dear John” and “Les Miserables.”

Hollywood usually likes to tell you what you are and I don’t want that. People see my face and they think it’s a prize. It’s something to win, something to get. I’m not a real person to them, I’m just something to check off their f****** list. How does that sound? Does it sound like fun to you? People walk out on pretty people all the time. Do you know how much shit I’ve carried around, had in my life, for this? - Amanda Seyfried for Sunday Times Style (July 2015)
