Amanda Seyfried Queen of Pop?

Amanda Seyfrie and Madonna
Here's Amanda Seyfried at the premiere of her new movie "Gone" and the Queen of Pop Madonna at a pre-Super Bowl event earlier this month.
The actress, better known for her most recent roles in films like "Dear John" has expanded her resume with the new release of "Gone." The film, which appeared in theaters on Friday, February 24 depicts the actress in a more serious role.

Seyfried plays a character that is kidnapped and thrown in a deep whole. While the character, Jill, is able to escape she returns home to find that her sister is missing. The character is depicted as slightly mental because it is uncertain whether or not she was actually kidnapped or if the event only occurred in her head.

 
For inspiration of her portrayal as Jill, Seyfried has said that she based her character on her real life sister, stating that her sister was a bit on the depressive side. "I based this character on my sister because she tends to be a little more sensitive," the actress told the Hollywood Reporter.

"Where as I'm anxious, she is more on the depressive side of things."

Seyfried described that her character had a tendency to put herself in unsafe situations. "There's something masochistic about her, where she kind of puts herself in that situation," she said. "Something is not quite right about her. She really hasn't learned how to deal with her place in the world."

Seyfried added that her character was also developed to be questioned. "She's a little off at times and that's where the audience is meant to kind of be misdirected a little bit and question her credibility," Seyfried relayed.

While Seyfried related her character to her sister, The Stir related Seyfried's new look to Madonna.

"What happens when a 26-year-old beauty starts morphing into a 53-year-old woman?" The Stir writer Lindsay Mannering asked.

"In a matter of weeks, the "In Time" star has turned into Madonna. She's aged about 30 years and may or may not have completed a metamorphosis only Franz Kafka could be proud of."
