Amanda Seyfried isn’t just hilarious. She’s also really brave. It takes an immense amount of courage to open up to the entire world about personal issues, and that’s exactly what she did during an interview with Allure.
Yet she was able to open up about these issues in the most casual and genuinely delightful way that makes us love her even more.
During the interview, Amanda spoke nonchalantly about her struggles with OCD and how it was affecting her life.
She can effortlessly make people laugh on screen while also effortlessly destigmatizing treating mental illness. She’s seriously amazing.
She also talked about taking medication, reminding people everywhere it’s totally fine to ask for help.
Part of the reason that Amanda doesn’t have any problem sharing these issues she’s dealing with is because she recognizes that there’s nothing abnormal about having a mental illness.
The interview takes place on beautiful farmland Amanda that has in upstate New York. From the details of the flourishing life filled with animals and adventures that she’s created for herself out there, she (and her adorable dog Finley) are happier than ever.
We so admire Amanda for helping normalize mental illness and take yet another small step towards ridding our world of the stigma that surrounds it. Read the whole interview over at Allure.
