Amanda Seyfried can't believe her success.

The 27-year-old 'Les Miserables' star - who began her career at the age of 11 as a child model - thinks she is extremely lucky that she has been able to develop slowly as an actress and still believes her best work was alongside Lindsay Lohan in 'Mean Girls' in 2004.

The blonde beauty told Indiewire: ''It's been such a slow move for me. And I'm really lucky because I got to experience each thing as it came, as opposed to being bombarded with all this attention. It's always been slow. People say, 'Oh, breakout star overnight,' to these actors of my generation. It must be hard to get all that attention and know what's real at the end of the day. And luckily a lot of them do and they're real people... I can call them my peers and I'm super proud.

''Also, I've just worked a long time. I've gotten a lot of cool opportunities here and there and I've made some good choices with the help of my amazing team. I was with them since I was 16. It all feels right; it feels good. I still look back at 'Mean Girls' as my best work.

''I was so innocent. I was so green. I look back and I'm like, 'Really, I thought I was doing a terrible job.' But it was written so well and so wonderfully directed. Mark Waters (the director) made me look good; he made me funny. And Tina Fey wrote the coolest script of all time. I'm so grateful for every experience.''

The actress, whose new movie 'Linda Lovelace' is currently being screened at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, also revealed Hugh Jackman has inspired her to never let her success go to her head.

She said: ''He literally is grateful for every single opportunity. He's grateful for every interview he does. He's grateful for every platform he has to speak about something. I mean, holy... this guy is Buddha! I want to be that grateful. I have such a privilege of being in the public eye. I can use it for good instead of using it for evil. I've just been around, so it feels good to finally get to this point at this age because I don't think I could have done it a couple years ago. Everything happens in good time.''
