On Tuesday night, Amanda Seyfried appeared on “The Late Show With David Letterman” to promote her upcoming Christmas day film, “Les Misérables.”But this wasn’t an ordinary press appearance by the 27-year-old actress.

In order to help combat a bad case of stage fright, Seyfried knocked back three drinks before sitting down with Letterman — and it showed.

When the late night host asked if she had been drinking, Seyfriend responded, “Yeah, I’m pretty drunk … I’m a big fan of whiskey.”

But it didn’t stop there, Seyfried also admitted “I have to go on record saying I’ve never done a live television after, um, noon without some kind of liquid courage.”
