Actress Amanda Seyfried reflected back on her budding stardom during Mean Girls and said she experienced "gross" behavior from her male fans.

In an interview with Marie Claire magazine, the 36-year-old said that around the time of her breakout role in the 2004 teen comedy film written by Tina Fey, male fans who recognized the actress would ask her if it was raining.

The question was in reference to her character, Karen–who claimed she could forecast the weather by holding her breasts.

“I always felt really grossed out by that," she said of her interactions involving the "rain" reference.

"I was like 18 years old. It was just gross.”

Trolls downplayed her genuine response to something that made her feel uncomfortable in the past.

To which those who felt for Seyfried shut them down.

“I think being really famous [young] must really f'king suck,” said Seyfried, adding, “It must make you feel completely unsafe in the world."

Since Mean Girls, Seyfried has gone on to star in high-profile projects like Mamma Mia!, Les Miserables and Mank.

As her career began taking off, she was intimidated by fame.

“Fame is weird," she proclaimed.

"I’ve never been super famous. I’ve always been somewhat recognizable. It’s been the healthiest trajectory."
"[It’s] not a scary spike. I have my priorities. I know who I am. I know where I’m going. I know what it means. It means that I’m getting to do what I love."

In 2013, Seyfriend bought a small, 1930s stone farmhouse in the Catskills to get away from it all.

She said:

"I see these younger actors who think they have to have security. They think they have to have an assistant."
"They think their whole world has changed. It can get stressful. I’ve seen it happen to my peers. So, I bought a farm."
"I was like, let’s go in the opposite way.”

Seyfried's latest project is Hulu's The Dropout, inspired by the podcast about the downfall of biotechnology company Theranos and its founder Elizabeth Holmes, played by Seyfried.
