Amanda Seyfried: “I can smell electricity”

The actress elaborated on her "pregnancy-heightened senses" recently

Amanda Seyfried has said that she is able to “smell electricity” thanks to the heightened sense of smell that she has developed during her current pregnancy.

The actress, who has starred in the likes of Mean Girls, Les Misérables and A Million Ways to Die in the West, is currently expecting her first child with fiancé and fellow actor Thomas Sadoski.

Speaking at the launch of a new Givenchy perfume in New York City on Wednesday (November 30), Seyfried answered questions from reporters about how her sense of smell in particular had been altered by her pregnancy.


“The only thing that I can’t tolerate is body odor,” Seyfried revealed. “Normally body odour is, ‘Uh, it’s alright.’ But I cannot tolerate it anymore. If someone has it, I have to leave. I have a hard time with that.

“I can smell electricity. I swear to God I can smell the TV,” she added.

While Seyfried has not appeared in any films in 2016, she will star in a number of projects next year. This includes the forthcoming drama The Last Word, the comedy The Clapper and the sci-fi movie Anon, which she will star in alongside Clive Owen. All three movies are expected to be released during 2017.
