Amanda Seyfried has revealed exactly why she'll never be seen in a superhero costume on the big screen.

Most recently found in David Fincher's dazzling period piece Mank, the 35-year-old actress spoke to Associated Press about her thoughts on the genre, which studios like Marvel and DC has spearheaded over the last two decades.

"I don't imagine there are many agents who don't feel like their clients wouldn't benefit from a big superhero movie," Seyfried began.

"I've really had to push against it. I get it. I think superhero movies are wonderful, and you can be transported to this incredible world that doesn't exist. And it's really good for kids, I think, as they're getting older.

"But I have no interest in being that physical, and being that much of a trip to my imagination every day."

Seyfried added: "I'm not a fan of green screen. I'm just not.

"I want to have fun when I'm working. And so that has been that cloud that's been looming over me for my entire career, and I don't know when it'll ever go away.

"But it's okay because at the end of the day, my agents trust me and they know that it's not for everybody."

Next up, Seyfried stars in the Netflix thriller flick Things Heard & Seen and director Amy Koppelman's A Mouthful of Air – due out later this year.
