Amanda Seyfried:

Stunning actress Amanda Seyfried has confessed she struggled with her self-esteem as a child because of her appearance. The ‘oamma oia’ star revealed she was “super outgoing” until she turned 10. “I got a bit older and started getting shy. Way too shy,” she says. “I felt so extremely ugly. When I look back, I was not ugly – I was cute and had a gap in my teeth. But I wish I could have enjoyed that part of my life and been more confident.” While she didn’t feel pretty, Amanda was still a keen performer, and admits she liked to sing songs at home. “Sometimes I would sing around the house for two hours straight, but I didn’t want anyone to hear me up close. I would sing all the Broadway show tunes like ‘Cabaret’,” she explains.
