Amanda Seyfried has always been ”scared s**tless” about performing on stage.
The 29-year-old actress was previously signed up to appear in 2013’s The Shape of Things, but the production was canceled. She’s currently set to make her off-Broadway debut in The Way We Get By, opposite Thomas Sadoski, and although she has auditioned in the past, she has always been wary of working in theatre.
She said: ”I always wanted to be up there. I wanted to do something else last year that ended up not happening. It was one of those things I kept putting off because I was scared s**tless. I never really felt ready for it until now. This is for me.”
With just over a month before the play previews, Amanda is still not over her fears of the stage, admitting: ”It makes me nervous to even think about it.”
She told Entertainment Tonight: ”Ugh, no, I can’t live like a singer. I love to sing, but not for work. Unless it’s a movie where you can put it all down in the recording studio and then forget about it.”
