Even if Amanda Seyfried claims to be friends with Lindsay Lohan, they couldn't be more different. While Lindsay Lohan can't seem to stay out of the tabloids, Amanda Seyfried has managed to stay out of them by avoiding the Hollywood party circuit and the excesses that come with it. It's these wholesome qualities that add to her girl-next-door sex appeal.  

As a former model, Amanda Seyfried definitely isn't hurting in the looks department, either. Her blond hair and blue eyes compliment a perfectly symmetrical face to go along with her shapely 5'3" frame. She put it to good use with a photo spread for Vogue Italia as Alice in Wonderland. Amanda Seyfried's enjoyment of dancing and tennis surely go a long way toward keeping her in top shape. Even though she leads somewhat of a low-key personal life, we do know that she has been linked to her Alpha Dog costar, Emile Hirsch.   



The young and multitalented Amanda Seyfried has already amassed an impressive array of credits across the television and movie spectrum. On television, she's had recurring roles on soap operas (As the World Turns), mysteries (Veronica Mars) and dramas (Big Love). In the film world, Amanda Seyfried has faced off against Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls and sung with Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan in Mamma Mia!, which had the biggest box-office opening of any musical in history.

Although Amanda Seyfried only has a shared MTV Movie Award and ensemble Gotham as well as Locarno Film Festival awards to her credit, she certainly has the talent to go further. Prior to TV and film, Amanda Seyfried cut her chops on-stage in musicals while taking voice and opera lessons on the side. It would come as no surprise to us if she were to sing and dance her way to an Oscar someday. 


"I do feel like I've grown up. Living by yourself in two cities, having a relationship, the Hollywood stuff. It forces you to deal with things as an adult."
- Amanda Seyfried


Amanda Louise Seyfried was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, on December 3, 1985. The daughter of a pharmacist and a therapist, she had dreams of becoming a meteorologist, but soon turned her sights on acting and modeling. In her early teens, Amanda Seyfried was signed by New York's Wilhelmina for a series of modeling gigs, including print work for Mizz Magazine and three cover shots for Francine Pascal's Sweet Valley High novels.  

While modeling, Amanda Seyfried took voice lessons and acted on stage in New York productions of Grease and A Christmas Carol. She also got a taste of TV as an extra on The Guiding Light. In 2000, Amanda Seyfried got her biggest break yet as the rich girl, Lucie Montgomery, on As the World Turns, but after just a month, she left the show as a result of creative conflicts. In 2002, Amanda Seyfried found another soap opera role on All My Children, but a year later, she enrolled at Fordham University, believing that her acting career had sputtered out.

In the fall of 2003, Amanda Seyfried auditioned to play the scheming Regina in the 2004 film Mean Girls. The role went to Rachel McAdams, but the producers picked Amanda Seyfried to play Regina's dim-witted pal, Karen, instead. Amanda Seyfried put her college plans on hold and it proved to be a good choice, as Mean Girls was a box-office hit and also earned her a shared MTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Team.  

Later that year, Amanda Seyfried auditioned to play the title character on UPN's hit show Veronica Mars. She won the role of the deceased Lily instead. Shown only in flashbacks, Lily was vital to the first season's plot and made Amanda Seyfried one of the show's familiar faces. In addition to Veronica Mars, Amanda Seyfried made guest appearances on other shows like House M.D. and CSI, and added to her film credits roles in the teen drama Alpha Dog and the crime film American Gun

After her stint on Veronica Mars ended, Amanda Seyfriend continued to find work in the television world. In 2006, she guest-starred in five episodes of the second season of the horse racing series Wildfire, and then landed a top-flight role as Bill Paxton's oldest daughter on HBO's acclaimed polygamy drama, Big Love.

Although a regular on Big Love, Amanda Seyfried was still craving a movie role that could rival her success with Mean Girls. She found it with the 2008 ABBA-inspired musical Mamma Mia!, which saw her playing a girl in search of her biological father. As a trained singer, the movie was a perfect fit for Amanda Seyfried, and its international box-office success has made her a talent to watch. Her upcoming projects include a role opposite Megan Fox in the dark comedy Jennifer's Body and a part in the ensemble arts piece Boogie Woogie alongside Gillian Anderson

Killer rack and great in the sack.
Who says that "scrub" work on a movie set isn't worth it?
It definitely was during Mama Mia, if you know what I mean.

She is awesome.. hope to see her in more movies and I hope to see her around Allentown soon, They had a big write up about her in our local (Allentown) morning call and she says when she comes home, she spends some time with her best friend watching movies, she's not a person that wants to go out and party even in her hometown. 2 hours from New York City and 1 1/4 hours from Philadelphia Pa. She's the best. Maybe in the future she will make a movie here in Allentown, Pa... Billy Joel made a song about Allentown and transformers the Movie Filmed here 5-6 months ago in Bethlehem Pa.

She is very gorgeous, cute, pretty, hot, sexy ... plus her voice is a killer.

Mamma Mia would've been a dog's breakfast without her there.

Her face is so perfectly feminine...eyes that are both big and wide-set, full lips, round forehead, small chin, and flawless skin. Are her boobs real though? And is she a real blonde?
