The star said there have been times she’s asked herself: “How did I let this happen?”

The Emmy and Oscar-nominated star also talked about a lack of ‘respect’ she felt she received on sets.

She tells Porter magazine: “There’s a respect level that I have never felt so fully around me,” she explained while discussing her latest series.

“It has nothing to do with any level of fame or recognition or critical acclaim.

“Whatever it is, it’s not because of Mank, it’s not because of The Dropout, [and] it’s not about having seen my movies.”

She continues: “Being 19, walking around without my underwear on – like, are you kidding me? How did I let that happen?

“Oh, I know why: I was 19 and I didn’t want to upset anybody, and I wanted to keep my job. That’s why.”

Seyfried also called out her Mean Girls role during an interview with Marie Claire.

The Red Riding Hood star said that she finds it ‘gross’ how her character, Karen, could predict the weather by holding onto her cleavage.

She says: “I always felt really grossed out by that.

“I was like 18 years old. It was just gross.”

Following Seyfried’s candid comments, the Screen Actor’s Guild approved a path to membership for intimacy coordinators.

Intimacy coordinators, sometimes called intimacy directors, are members of a film or TV crew who ensure the well-being of actors participating in intimate scenes.

The union’s president, Fran Drescher, said in a statement: “The role of intimacy coordinators greatly improves safety and well-being on sets and in productions requiring intimate scenes.

“Their value is immeasurable and the National Board is committed to bringing intimacy coordinators into the Guild’s family and ensuring they have the kind of benefits and protections other members already enjoy.”

Drescher added: “Intimacy coordinators, many of whom already are Screen Actor’s Guild members, have become an essential on-set resource for cast and crew alike.

“This decision furthers our mission of making on-set safety an industry-wide standard and priority and welcomes other talented, dedicated workers to join us.”
