Amanda Seyfried is terrified of getting up in front of an audience – and sought therapy for her anxiety issues, she reveals to Vogue in the magazine’s June issue.

Seyfried talked about how she downed shots of Jameson’s before a 2012 appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman while promoting Les Miserables. She admitted on air she was “pretty drunk.”

“It made it fun for me,” Seyfried, 29, tells Vogue. “But then I watched it and was like ‘That is not what I want to promote about myself.’ ”

“I have a lot of anxiety that I ve been struggling with my whole life,” Seyfried says. “So I have been working through it. I’m terrified, but this is exactly what I wanted.”
