She also had a recurring role in the UPN TV show Veronica Mars (2004–2006). Between 2006 and 2011, she was on HBO's series Big Love.

On May 23, 2013, Seyfried appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show where she lamented the reduced size of her breasts since coming to Hollywood. She had recently been featured in the May 2013 issue of Allure magazine. When queried by an inquisitive DeGeneres about her breasts, Seyfried commented "I looked way better when I was 15. I had beautiful, huge breasts!" She ended up trimming 10 pounds and one of the unfortunate side effects was the reduction of her cup from D to C. She doesn't miss them "because they were ... uncomfortable." But she continued "I was feminine. I had some nice curves."
