Amanda Seyfried is lovely and honest about all sorts of things (like her anxiety, in fact), and honestly, I admire her for being up-front about how the TV interview circuit makes her so crazy that she’s been known to throw back a bit of whiskey to cope.
Is relying on alcohol to cope with stress healthy? Definitely not. However, I find it brave–and endearing, even–that Amanda is up-front about her flaws and says, “Hey friends, I’m human!”
Amanda said recently on Dave Letterman that she had three drinks before sitting down in his interview chair. “I’m super nervous,” she said. “I have stage fright. I’ve never done a live television show after noon without some kind of liquid courage.”
How about you? Do you ever rely on “liquid courage”? Be honest!
