In a joint interview for Backstage with her Dear John costar Channing Tatum, the subject of Amanda Seyfried's short-lived stint as Lucy on As The World Turns came up.
Seyfried: I'll be honest, I was pretty bad starting out. When I was 15, I was on "As the World Turns," and I was so bad they had to ship my character off.
Back Stage: Are you sure it was because of you—it wasn't a story-line decision?
Seyfried: It was absolutely, without a doubt, because I was that bad. I was so uncomfortable. I had it in me, but if you aren't comfortable, you can't access your skill.
Now that's what I call self awareness!
