Amanda Seyfried shared a little whiskey with U.S. TV
host David Letterman on air on Tuesday after admitting she was already
"pretty drunk" for her interview.
The Mamma Mia!
star, 27, recently revealed to America's InStyle magazine that she suffers
frequent panic attacks before promotional appearances and TV chats and likes to
down a shot of liquor ahead of time to calm her nerves - and that's just what
she did before sitting down for an appearance on The Late Show with David
inebriated Seyfried confessed she didn't stop at one.
She told the
talk show host, "I'm pretty drunk. To be honest with you, Dave, I've had
about three (shots). You know, big fan of whiskey... I had some (rare)
Midleton. Russell Crowe gave me some Midleton for my birthday... And then your
lovely colleagues had some Jameson waiting (backstage) for me."
"I have to go on record saying I've never done a live television show...
without some kind of liquid courage.
understand that I have a problem maybe, but you know what, it really gets me
through, and I really wanna enjoy my experience out here."
Letterman finished the interview by helping Seyfried indulge, toasting
the end of the chat with a glass of Jameson.
