Los Angeles: Actress Amanda Seyfried says that she "rarely" gives her best in films.
The 29-year-old is currently starring in off-Broadway show "The Way We Get By" and admits she works much harder on stage than on screen, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I don't want to give anything but my best, and in films I rarely give my best,” she said.
The “Lovelace” star also said that while one can “hide laziness” in films, it is difficult to do that on stage.
"You can hide laziness in film, you can't hide on stage. You don't want to do that to people who have spent $100-400 on a ticket. You want to tell the story,” she said.
Seyfried also admits that working in theatre is "tough" and requires a lot of sacrifices.
"The theatre world is tough and you have to be willing to sacrifice a lot. It's making me re-evaluate my ideas about where I thought I wanted my career to go,” she said.
"When I do movies, I usually knit. I also paint, but between these shows I'm either napping or meditating," added the actress.
