Amanda Seyfried Washington, May 4 (ANI): Amanda Seyfried has revealed she grew up believing that sex was sinful.

The 24-year-old Mamma Mia! star belongs to a small community in Pennsylvania, where she was made to believe that sex was “dirty and disgusting”.

She adds that she adopted a more liberal attitude after moving to the big cities of New York and Los Angeles.

“We have to be open-minded. I’m not saying Americans are narrow-minded - I’ve lived in New York and Los Angeles - but where I grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, there was a small-town mindset that made me feel that sex was wrong.

“When my sister lost her virginity, I thought that was dirty and disgusting, and I was scared of sex. I remember I had a fight with my friend when I touched a boy for the first time and I didn’t tell her. She got mad with me, not because I didn’t tell her, but because I’d done it in the first place.

“Intimacy is a wonderful thing. It’s frustrating that growing up I thought I was wrong. It isn’t. Exploring your sexuality is important when you’re growing up,” Contactmusic quoted Seyfried as telling Britain’s Stella magazine. (ANI)
