Stiller, Seyfried, Horovitz and Baumbach all generously took the time recently to talk about filming ‘While We’re Young’ during a press conference at the Crosby St. Hotel in New York City. Among other things, the actors and writer-director-producer discussed how the comedy-drama’s filmmaker tried to show Josh is concerned about showing his own truth in his work, but to an extent all art is based on other other people’s intellectual ideas; how Baumbach also infused all of the characters in the film with positive and negative attributes of their respective generation, so that all viewers can relate to, and understand, them; and how the writer-director made Josh a documentarian so that he would not only visually chronicle life’s challenges in his film, but also force him to collaborate with people of all backgrounds while making his movie.

Q: Amanda, what did you like most about your character of Darby, and are there any lessons you learned from her?

Amanda Seyfried (AS): Well, I was attracted to the fact that she doesn’t seem to worry about much. There’s this burden that I carry on my shoulders constantly, so I’m actively working on really loosening up. So I’m learning how to be so mindful all the time from her.

No matter how many movie musicals she’s made, the stage–with or without live singing–has eluded Amanda Seyfried. “I always wanted to be up there,” she tells ETonline, ever since she first auditioned for the Broadway revival of Annie when she was just a pre-teen. (“The audition was awful,” she told Jon Stewart during a recent appearance on The Daily Show.)

That initial failure led her to the small screen where she landed her first acting gig at the age of 14 on the long-running CBS soap opera, As the World Turns. Later, she garnered attention as Lily Kane on the cult classic, Veronica Mars. However, Seyfried’s big break came in 2004 when she adopted the “ESPN”-blessed persona of Karen Smith in Mean Girls before honing her dramatic chops in HBO’s Big Love.

In the years since, Seyfried attempted to make her theatrical debut but somehow always fell short. In 2013, she signed on to playwright Neil LaBute’s The Shape of Things, but the production fell apart when they couldn’t find a co-star or director. “I wanted to do something else last year that ended up not happening,” she adds vaguely.

And then there’s her stage fright–which she says she occasionally drowns with whiskey, especially during appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman–that may have ultimately sabotaged her, at least until now.

“It was one of those things I kept putting off because I was scared shitless,” she says.

But she’s about to break her bad luck streak now that 29-year-old actress is set to make her Off-Broadway debut in the two-person play, The Way We Get By, written by LaBute and co-starring The Newsroom’s Thomas Sadoski. The performance comes on the heels of one of her most nuanced roles on screen as Darby in Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young–another opportunity she’s been hoping to get. “I’ve always been a fan of Noah’s,” Seyfried says. “It was about him being attracted to me at all in any way.”

However, Seyfried’s upcoming stage production doesn’t mean the fear is gone. She said her heart was pounding while watching her Les Miserables co-star Hugh Jackman in the Broadway production of The River last December. “It makes me nervous to even think about it,” Seyfried says of her upcoming show, which starts previews on April 28 and officially opens May 19.

While the play is the right fit for Seyfried (“It’s the perfect first play”), it may not be an obvious one for fans who’ve seen her sing soaring father-daughter ballads with Jackman in Les Miserables or massive dance scenes with Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia.

“Ugh, no, I can’t live like a singer,” she says. Unlike Emma Stone, who recently took on Sally Bowles in Cabaret, or Vanessa Hudgens, who is prepping her debut in Gigi, Seyfried admits she doesn’t have the discipline for such a production
