Amanda Seyfried: Hot Young Starlet Burning Out Too Fast?
Went to see the film "Chloe" last night, and while it certainly had it's problems, I can appreciate that it was an interesting twist on the whole "Fatal Attraction" vibe and had some good moments, for a quick rating I would have to say 2.5 stars out of 5...It's a renter.
However, in perhaps her first "serious" role the title role of this film went to upcoming starlet Amanda Seyfried of "Mamma Mia" & "Big Love" fame.
I can see why she is becoming popular, a beautiful 25 year old that people want to put on there movie posters in order to sell whatever they need too, however we have one small problem.
SHE CANNOT ACT
Now granted this skill may be developed overtime, the perfect example of this would Scarlett Johannson, who by no means is the female second coming of Laurence Oliver, but has developed some skills. Ms. Seyfried playing a sociopathic high end prostitute was completely out of her realm...and it showed
I implore that producers, please put her in roles where she can show strenghts and develop into the kind of actress that can take some risks with a role like this.
You've got to walk before you can run Ms. Seyfried, time to slow down before your budding film career turns into a supporting role on a CBS primetime drama.
