Amanda Seyfried Says Being Pregnant Means She Can Smell The TV Now
Uh, does someone have Professor Xavier’s phone number? Because I think I have your newest X-Men addition.
If you’re wondering how the pregnancy has affected her, look no further than her nose. No, seriously, having a bun in the oven means she can smell things that she couldn’t smell before.
If you’re sipping coffee right about now, put that java down. I have something potentially alarming to tell you: Amanda Seyfried can smell electricity.
DAMN IT. WHAT DID I TELL YOU?
In a recent interview with Refinery29, Amanda talked about her heightened sense of smell, saying,
I swear to god I can smell the TV. There’s this static-y, metal-y scent. Do you know what I’m talking about?
I mean, I can smell the TV, but that’s because there’s a family of rats living inside that I’m convinced make the whole damn thing work.
Normally, I’d say that the ability to smell your TV is not a natural one.
Whoa, easy, everyone! Pregnancy heightens all your senses. It’s basically the equivalent to being bitten by a radioactive spider and turning into Spider-Man…
A Spider-Man with a little Spider-Baby inside of you. LET THE FANFIC BEGIN!
Amanda also talked about Givenchy’s Live Irrésistible fragrance — she attended a Givenchy event earlier this week — and how it reminded her of some of her favorite smells, saying,
There’s something comforting and cozy about [the smell of] something baking or something sugary. That’s why I love those Yankee candles, [in] Buttercream Frosting or Angel Food Cake. I mean, who doesn’t put a vanilla-scented candle out in their kitchen? [Those scents] relate to the child in me, which will live on forever. That’s also probably the pregnancy talking; I’ll blame it on that.
In case you wondering, there are certainly aromas that Amanda does not like to have wafted into her nostrils. She continued,
The only thing I can’t tolerate is body odor. Normally, it’s fine — I know it’ll pass or I can leave the room — but I cannot tolerate it anymore. I have a hard time with that.
Smelling like a TV? Fine. Smelling like a sweaty monster? NOT COOL.
