If she had attended that class in “Promoting Movies 101,” she would have learned how to stay on point, and not let the interviewer get her talking about other projects. The idea is to talk only about the current movie, even if the next movie might be the one that intrigues the interviewer.
Seyfried, 26, is a free spirit who doesn’t know how to deflect or deceive the media. If you want to talk about her new movie “Gone,” which opens Friday, that’s fine. And if you also want to talk about her controversial role in “Lovelace,” in which she portrays the late porn star Linda Lovelace of “Deep Throat” fame, that’s fine, too. “Lovelace,” which will be released later this year, is one of four films the actress has coming out in 2012. She also has a supporting role in the ensemble film “The Big Wedding,” and a starring role in “Les Misérables.”
This is the same Amanda Seyfried who first gained noticed in the Tina Fey-penned film “Mean Girls,” and then shot to stardom as the young bride in “Mamma Mia!” When you’re in a movie that makes $600 million, many romantic roles will follow, and Seyfried appeared in several, including “Dear John” and “Letters to Juliet.”
But she wants a more diverse career, and “Lovelace” is obviously a step in that direction. But so is “Gone,” in which she plays a woman stalking a serial killer who has abducted her sister. She believes it is the same predator who abducted her the year before, but police doubt her original claim, and are slow to act on her sister’s disappearance.
Seyfried talks about her upcoming movies, and how they fit into her career plan. Then she unexpectedly unburdened herself on the burdens of stardom. She is getting to the point in her skyrocketing career that she is expected to sell movies on her name alone, and she’s not sure she wants that responsibility.
ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER: The last time we spoke, you were very candid about your career. You said what you needed after all those romantic roles was a good psycho killer movie. Is this it?
AMANDA SEYFRIED: Actually, I wanted to play a psycho killer, and I still do.
Q. Even though you’re only chasing a psycho killer in “Gone,” is this the movie you were looking for to send your career in another direction?
A. I don’t think so. It’s still hard for people in Hollywood to buy me as a psycho killer. “Chloe” hit it closer than anything else I’ve done, but I’m still not there. “Gone” is good, though, because while I start out as a victim, I get stronger and show that you can do anything you put your mind to. That’s what I love about this film. There’s nothing too far-fetched about it. She’s not flying off bridges or anything like that. It’s based in reality. It’s a normal girl in extraordinary situations.

With the recent rash of revenge flicks comes heroine-driven thriller Gone, starring Amanda Seyfried. The young actress has starred in a number of films in her career that so far defies type-casting. She stole scenes as a wide-eyed and gorgeous idiot in Tina Fey’s Mean Girls, showed off her singing chops alongside Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia!, and recently starred in the dystopian sci-fi thriller In Time. In Gone, Seyfried plays a traumatized kidnapping surviver who believes her younger sister has been taken by the very same serial killer she escaped. The ingenue spoke with Buzzine’s Emmanuel Itier about what drew her to this film, the physicality of shooting a break-neck thriller, and her next film, the racy biography of ’70s porn star Linda Lovelace.
Emmanuel Itier: Tell me what attracted you to Gone? Was it to work with a Brazilian young director?
Amanda Seyfried: That was one of them. I saw Adrift after I read the script, and it’s really flawless, so I thought if he could bring that emotional intensity that he had in Adrift to a really smart psychological thriller, it would be a really good collaboration. The script was really fun. I like this genre. This is the kind of movie that I would go see. It’s scary, in the best way, and it’s a smart movie, so you get to really kind of think a little bit while you’re watching it. It’s like putting together a puzzle for two hours. And the pace is right there. It takes you to the edge of your seat, and then it’s very satisfying at the end. So it’s good. It’s just my kind of movie. I’m glad I finally got to do something like this.
EI: Are you that type of girl – the bad-ass, kick-*ss girl that takes her destiny in her hands? Did you put a little bit of yourself in it?
AS: I didn’t really put myself in it. She was loosely based on my sister, at the beginning, and then when stuff really gets going and her sister is gone, I just went off into this other character who is just fearless, because I have never had to deal with a situation where I had nothing to lose like on this level, so I channeled Ashley Judd a little bit.

You don’t go to Disneyland.
You go home to the house outside Los Angeles that you share with your sister. And you live a very real life.
In “Gone” (opening Friday), Seyfried plays a young woman named Jill whose sister disappears. She is sure that a serial killer who kidnapped her two years ago has returned and decides to turn the table on him.
With “Lovelace” behind her, soon she will film “Les Miserables,” where nabbed the coveted role of Cosette.
1 You’re not known for doing thrillers like “Gone.” Was that the appeal?
Thrillers are actually my favorite genre. This particular film was a bit daunting because I’m in a lot of the scenes alone, which is a lot of responsibility. If this is a bomb, this is my responsibility. But I can’t focus on box office. I have to care about making good movies that entertain. This film is a puzzle and you’re constantly trying to figure out the twists and turns. It’s such a fun ride.

After Demi Moore had to drop out of “Lovelace” last month, there were many rumors about who would replace her as Gloria Steinem in the biopic about porn star Linda Lovelace. The production finally settled on Sarah Jessica Parker, who agreed to cameo in the film following a personal plea from star Amanda Seyfried.
Despite her happiness that Parker was able to play the venerable Ms. magazine co-founder, Seyfried was saddened by Moore’s departure.
