"Everyone should have kids. They are the greatest joy in the world. But they are also terrorists. You’ll realize this as soon as they are born and they start using sleep deprivation to break you." - Ray Romano

We might not be seeing Amanda Seyfried in any more films like "Lovelace."

Seyfried told Fox News that since she became a mother, she's started reconsidering which acting roles to take especially when it comes to ones that involve nudity.

"I have no time for unnecessary nudity or sex because as you get older you realize it's not easy. It can be funky and uncomfortable," the "Mean Girls" actress said.

Seyfried welcomed the arrival of her first child, Nina, in March 2017 with husband, actor Thomas Sadoski.

She said having a child made her realize how much "power" she had. Now, she's more selective about which jobs she takes and declines roles more often.

The "Mamma Mia!" star added that she understands she has to work, but her priority is raising Nina in a "safe and happy and loving environment."

"I feel really empowered just for the fact that I'm able to present those things, and choose what I want, as opposed to what I think somebody else wants just to make them happy," the 33-year-old said. "It's more about, I want to choose to do things when I leave my daughter 16 hours a day, to do something that I desperately want to do with all of my heart, and I'm just kind of more interested in doing animated film."

Try to always use reason not rage. Avoid fighting fire with fire. Be in control of your feelings and your actions so that your children can learn to be in control of theirs.

The mom opened up to Porter Magazine last year about prioritizing her family.

“I’ll say no, I can’t do that press trip, because I’m spending time with my daughter," Seyfried said. "‘Oh, you want my top off for that part? How about we scrap that sex scene altogether? And no, I’m not wearing those thongs!’"

Heidi Klum (mom of four: Leni, Henry, Johan and Lou (above)): “I’m not someone who [lives] like, ‘OK, this is a museum and you can’t sit here and you can’t touch this and everything has to be put in its place - [the kids] live here as much as we do. You come into our house and a giant elephant and lion are welcoming you. We have toys and things everywhere.”
