Why Amanda Seyfried regrets losing weight

It's no secret that Hollywood prizes actresses who are slim, but Amanda Seyfried thinks being thin is overrated.

During an interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday, the 27-year-old "Les Misérables" star became nostalgic for the curvier body she had as a teen.

"I looked way better when I was 15," Seyfried said. "I had beautiful huge breasts and then I came to Hollywood and I was like, 'I got to lose weight.' I got to look thin and fit, and I lost them a little bit."

Seyfried's fans may remember her fuller figure from when she first started acting on the soap "As the World Turns" in 1999. Since then, the actress has lost "like 10 pounds," and along with the weight, she also lost her D-cup chest (she claimed she lost around 3 pounds off her breasts).

"That's what happens when you try to lose weight — it all comes out of the wrong place," she said, adding, "I had some nice curves, and I think that we should really appreciate that, as opposed to trying to get rid of everything."

But having said all that, the blond beauty claimed she didn't want her old assets back.

"I don’t miss them, because they were quite uncomfortable, but they looked beautiful," Seyfried said. "I was feminine."

Well, we think she looks pretty good now, too!
