Amanda Seyfried and husband Thomas Sadoski may have passed some acting talent down to their oldest child. Nina, 5, could have a future in acting according to her actress mom. After winning an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a limited series for her role in “The Dropout” at the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards, Seyfried, 36, told PEOPLE she will put her first Emmy trophy in Nina’s room.
Seyfried Would Support Her Daughter’s Acting Career
When asked if she would support her daughter’s choice to pursue acting, the “Mean Girls” star said, “Totally. My husband’s like, ‘I’m terrified.'” She continued, “And I was like, ‘Let her do what she’s going to do. She’s a f***ing child of actors. What do you expect?'”
While Seyfried was accepting her award, Nina was supposed to be sleeping since it’s a school night. But she later found out that wasn’t the case. “My daughter actually cried because she was confused how I spoke to her through the TV and so I called her,” she said. “She was supposed to be in bed. She’s going to school tomorrow. I didn’t expect that to be the reaction. I’ve got to have a conversation with [Nina] when I get home.” Seyfried and Sadoski, 46, are also parents to Thomas, 23-months-old.
If Nina decides to pursue acting or modeling, Seyfried will be able to help her since she’s been in the industry since the age of 11 when she started modeling. From modeling, she moved into soap operas, but her big break was “Mean Girls.”
Seyfried Gave An Acceptance Speech Thanking Many
Seyfried accepted the award from presenters Chris O’Donnell and Shemar Moore and then said, “Thanks Television Academy, and thanks for recognizing me among these amazing actors.” She then thanked “The Dropout” creator Liz Meriweather and executive producer Michael Showalter. She continued, “It was really hard but it was the best time of my life. Of course [thank you to] my agents of 16 years, Abby Bluestone, Scott, Morrie, Gary. And last but not least, [thank you to] my family. Hi, bubs, you gotta go to bed now, but thanks! Thank you to my family, my mom, my husband, my dad, and my kids, and my dog, Finn. Thanks so much.”
Fame Caught Up To The “Mean Girls” Actress
Earlier this year, Seyfried talked to Marie Claire about what it’s like to have fame catch up to her. “Fame is weird. I’ve never been super famous. I’ve always been somewhat recognizable. It’s been the healthiest trajectory,” she explained. “[It’s] not a scary spike. I have my priorities. I know who I am. I know where I’m going. I know what it means. It means that I’m getting to do what I love. I’m actually not afraid of it now.”
Seyfried and Sadoski alternate between living in New York City and on their farm in upstate New York. Much of her Instagram page shows life on the farm. In 2017, the actress gave a peek of her farmhouse in Vogue Living.
