Amanda Seyfried accidentally exposed a bit too much during a photo shoot, with pictures showing the actress accidentally flashing onlookers while she posed for a perfume ad.
The 30-year-old actress was in Paris for a photo shoot for Givenchy’s fragrance, Live Irresistible. As she reclined on a ledge, her pink skirt rode upward and exposed her backside. Photographs of Seyfried’s accidental flash soon spread on the internet, but the U.K.’s Mirror noted that the incident didn’t seem to bother the actress much.
“Fortunately the blonde beauty didn’t seem fazed and continued to pose up a storm as people fussed around her.
“The star, who split with ex boyfriend Justin Long last September, was joined by her boyfriend 39-year-old Thomas Sadoski.
“The pair were seen walking around set hand-in-hand in between shots.”
While much of the attention was on Amanda Seyfried’s accidental flash, the actress herself has actually been one of the biggest advocates against objectifying women in Hollywood. She has spoken out often about the unfair pressures women in the entertainment industry deal with to be thin and to look a certain way, and she is now pushing back against these ideas.
Seyfried even said she has a fitness routine that focuses on strength rather than weight loss.
“When I’m not working too hard I try to see a trainer twice a week. I do weight training, a bit of boxing and running at the gym. I aim for that ‘strong not skinny’ look,” Seyfried said.
And back in 2014, Amanda Seyfried opened up about the pressures of staying thin in Hollywood. In a message on Twitter, the actress said she refuses to change her body type just to help land a role.
“I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to be like Katniss so I’m going to skip dinner.’ That’s something that I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look just right. I want my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.”
The message seemed to show an evolution on the issue from Seyfried. Back in 2010, the then 24-year-old actress told Esquire magazine that it could be hard to resist the pressures of looking a certain way.
“It’s intense. And sort of awful,” she said. “Yesterday for lunch? Spinach. Just spinach. Spinach and some seeds.”
Seyfried has also spoken often about her own insecurities and her struggles with anxiety. This is an issue the actress has tried bringing to light, saying that she was often pressured to keep these problems under wraps, but now is willing to share them.
But Seyfried’s advocacy goes beyond diet and exercise and her own personal struggles. Seyfried said she has a “great affinity with women who live strong, bold lives,” including the artist Tamara de Lempicka.” She hoped to be able to influence Hollywood a bit to be more open and accepting of all women.
“If society becomes such a place that women can play active roles while being even more radiant and true to themselves, I think we may be able to resolve the many difficult issues facing the world today.”
Amanda Seyfried did not respond to the photos of her accidental flash, even as they went viral on Twitter and garnered coverage from celebrity news outlets.
