Seyfried added that for her the career-defining moment was when she got the opportunity to star in 2004’s teen comedy Mean Girls.

“The moment that altered the course of my life was getting the part of Karen in Mean Girls. I’ve had so many amazing roles since then, but that’s where it all started.

“I never had a plan B but I was enrolled at college in New York. I never attended because I got the part in ‘Mean Girls’. I guess I just would have had to see where college took me,” she said.
