W Magazine’s April issue was just released and donning the cover is Amanda Seyfried whose sultry pictures inside show the starlet wearing little pieces of lingerie and boots, leaving not much more to the imagination. The young actress has been on a hot streak of late, recently named the lead in Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2 follow-up as well as staring in critically acclaimed movies, like 2012’s Les Miserables. Since breaking out in her role in Mean Girls the actress has been steadily working since and gaining larger and better roles through the process.
The W Magazine photo shoot is to promote the actress’s new film, A Million Ways to Die in the West, which is also directed by Ted director and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. The film, about a farmer who becomes involved with a new woman only to find out that her husband is a deadly gun slinger and is on his way to town, also stars the very talented Charlize Theron and Taken star, Liam Neeson. The W Magazine shoot has some relationship to the movie, primarily, the young actress is wearing cowboy boots in the photos, besides that, it is just her wearing little clothes.
The cover photo is typical for any starlet; she wears thick eye shadow, her hair is done up, wears a low-cut dress and looks into the camera in a seductive way, not much different from the rest. It is the inside photos that will sell copies. In the pictures Amanda Seyfried wears bright red cowboy boots, lingerie and little else, posing for W Magazine mostly laying down, looking to the camera with her arms above her head and leaving the viewer’s imagination little room to roam. In one picture she stands in just her underwear, slightly bent over and looking above the camera; this screams new western movie . . .
The actress has not shied away from revealing her body in the past. She starred in the Linda Lovelace film, Lovelace, and had no problem showing it all during the course of that movie; the film was about the popular pornographic film Deep Throat, so it was not surprising. The actress also created waves back in 2009 when she was in Jennifer’s Body with Megan Fox and the two actresses kissed on-screen. Currently the actress is dating actor Justin Long, but still says she feels her recognition is quite small, citing that her dog is more popular than she is; this is after she posted pictures of her and dog, Finn, on Instagram. After these magazine pictures make the rounds, the 27-year-old actress should not have to worry much longer about not being recognized.
Amanda Seyfried’s W Magazine photo shoot will not give much away about the actresses new films, fans can still use their imagination for that, but the pictures with little clothing should hope to leave viewers wanting to see more of the actress’ work. Rarely do these photo shoots reveal anything about young, famous actresses other than what’s under their clothes. She is scheduled to release two movies this year, four movies next year, and has already signed on to Flying Horse, which will be written and directed by Gary Oldman and released in 2016. If these magazine photos garner Amanda Seyfried any additional fans, then they will have no problem catching the actress’s work in the next few years, as well as expect to see her grace the covers of many more magazines to come.
