Amanda Seyfried`s singing sounds like she`s having a stroke, say co-stars
New York: Actress Amanda Seyfried`s singing in `Les Miserables` was sometimes so bad that her co-stars reportedly feared she was having a stroke.
The cast all wore special earpieces to help them sing in time and on key but the forgetful actress would often leave hers somewhere on set and try to sing a capella, reported the New York Daily News.
Her co-star, actor Eddie Redmayne, said that during one duet, Seyfried`s singing was terrible but he was too embarrassed to tell her.
"I was doing a romantic duet with Amanda (Seyfried) and she was singing off-tune and slightly off-tempo, and I kept thinking, `This is an interesting take on the song`. We got to the end and she admitted she didn`t have her ear piece on. She was just singing along a cappella. I was too embarrassed to tell her," he said.
Seyfried also said that her castmates were so concerned with her odd performance they thought she was having a stroke as she attempted to keep in time without the ear piece.
"I would leave it (the ear piece) somewhere and I wouldn`t want anybody to know. I would just pretend I had it in. They all thought I was having some kind of stroke. It was kind of funny when we cut. They would be like, `What`s wrong with you?`" she added.
