THE DROPOUT Star Amanda Seyfried for Porter Magazine

Posted on August 12, 2022

“The Dropout” star Amanda Seyfried covers the latest issue of Porter magazine photographed by Tess Ayano and styled by Helen Broadfoot.



“I’ve never gone a day without feeling like I’ve worked really hard,” she reflects – a life that she feels “very grateful” to have. “I have no entitlement. I mean, I’m entitled to respect, I think; we all are. But I have no entitlement issues. I have many strokes of luck and a lot of hard work and a lot of being in the right place at the right time. I understand all of that.”

“There’s a respect level that I have never felt so fully around me,” she considers. “It has nothing to do with any level of fame or recognition or critical acclaim. Whatever it is, it’s not because of Mank, it’s not because of The Dropout, it’s not about having seen my movies. I’m respected because I’m 36 years old and I know who the fuck I am.”

“Nothing can crush me completely, when it comes to work. I’m uncrushable! Not one thing can crush my life, unless it has to do with my family.

“[That’s] not to say that I don’t get hurt in my job. I lost out on a big role that I really wanted – [well], I thought I wanted,” she adds. (The role was Glinda in the upcoming film adaptation of Wicked, which ultimately went to Ariana Grande.) “It was devastating, and it wasn’t for any other reason than I really felt like it was right. But that doesn’t take away from my confidence at all.
