Actress Amanda Seyfried reveals in the new issue of Glamour that she quit her social smoking habit when she auditioned for a role in the film adaptation of Les Miserables. Betcha didn't know that Seyfried trained as an opera singer as a teenager.
She stopped smoking in social setting and hired a vocal coach so she could hit the necessary high notes. The effort paid off, as she has since been cast alongside Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and Samantha Barks in director Tom Hooper's upcoming movie musical.
The saucer-eyed actress said, "I was smoking cigarettes socially, like, every couple weeks. Then I started singing again, and if I'm spending all this money taking lessons, then there's no point in doing that. Everybody and their mother was auditioning for Les Miz, so I wanted to audition, but I wanted to be good."
