Amanda Seyfried says she's 'gonna go back' to 'Big Love'
Amanda Seyfried, who exited “Big Love” earlier this year after the show’s fourth season, says she'll likely make return appearances to the hit HBO series.
“I’m gonna go back, probably at the end of the year,” the actress said during a recent interview, where she was promoting her new film, “Letters to Juliet.”
Seyfried, who on "Big" plays a teenager trying to understand her family’s polygamy, said she left the show because she wanted to pursue film opportunities.
“The commitment [of ‘Big Love’] would have kept me from doing anything this summer, and that’s just not fulfilling enough,” she said. “People were throwing opportunities my way, and I was like, ‘Oh, sorry, I can’t.’ But I was talking to Bill [Paxton] the other day, and he was like, ‘You’re coming back, right?’ And I was like, ‘Absolutely, if I’m not busy working on something crazy, of course I would.’ ”
And what does she have to say about her former cast mate Chloë Sevigny, who notoriously called the show’s fourth season “awful” and “very telenovela”?“Oh, gosh,” she sighed. “We all make mistakes like that and say things that people take out of context. She was probably saying, ‘Oh, that’s awful,’ because she was probably envisioning herself on the show and saying how bad she thought she was. I don’t think she was saying anything bad about the show itself.”
As far as the 24-year-old is aware, Sevigny didn’t burn any bridges by making the remark.“As long as she ties it up and calls everybody and apologizes for whatever she did, everybody’s cool,” Seyfried said. “She and the writers are all good. It’s not a big deal. I just felt so bad for her because I was like, ‘Ahh, it’s so easy to be in that situation.’ ”
