Seyfried added that taking on the role of was a challenge and credited Stone, who plays her controlling mother in the film, with helping her out. SOUNDBITE Amanda Seyfried on the role, saying (English): "The first couple of days were really hard. I was with Sharon and was just starting to embody her completely and all my preparations I had done as much as I could and now I was on set and I really had to just jump in and it was scary. Sharon saw that and she was really right in my corner the whole time and she made me feel like I could do it. I got my confidence really quickly and you cannot think about it after a certain point."
