Amanda Seyfried - Amanda Seyfried Quit Smoking To Protect Voice For Les Miserable Audition

Actress Amanda Seyfried quit her social smoking habit because she feared it would wreck her voice and her chances of landing a role in the film adaptation of Les Miserables.
The Mamma Mia! star dumped her cigarettes and hired a vocal coach to ensure she could hit the high notes during her audition, and her efforts paid off - she has been cast alongside Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and British actress Samantha Barks in director Tom Hooper's upcoming movie musical.
Seyfried, who trained in opera as a teenager, tells Glamour magazine, "I was smoking cigarettes socially, like, every couple weeks. Then I started singing again, and if I'm spending all this money taking lessons, then there's no point in doing that.
"Everybody and their mother was auditioning for Les Mis, so I wanted to audition, but I wanted to be good."
