Amanda Seyfried has shared how her children feel about seeing her on their TV screen.
During an interview with People, the Mamma Mia! star shared that her two children – daughter Nina, six, and son Thomas, two – have different reactions to seeing her on their television set.
“My son is two and a half, so I have no idea what his understanding is. When I was on the Today Show I was watching him, and his reaction was sad!” the actress revealed, explaining that Thomas associates her being on TV with her being away. “He’s like, ‘Mama!’ and I was like ‘Hey, I am right here!’ It doesn’t make sense (to him), and it shouldn’t.”
The Golden Globe winner then divulged that Nina, who she described as a “natural born actor”, has a better understanding and appreciation of her mother’s job.
“She’s starting to really appreciate that this is what I do for a living, and she understands it as much as any six-year-old can,” said Amanda. “When I say ‘I’m going to go do this, you’ll see me on TV’ she’ll be like, ‘Okay mama,’ and she misses me, but when I come back, she’s proud… She has this pride.”
The Dear John actress thinks her daughter could follow in her footsteps career-wise, with her adding, “She’s not working, but I know in my bones that this is what she is. She’s a performer. Will she do it as a career? Who knows?”
Amanda shares her two children with her husband, actor Thomas Sadoski, who she married in 2017.
