Amanda Seyfried, one of the most iconic American actresses, started her career in the entertainment industry by becoming a model for various clothing companies, such as Limited Too, alongside Leighton Meester.
Later, she then stopped modeling when she turned 17 years old.
Instead, this Sagittarius performer decided to do something more attractive to her, such as taking vocal lessons and studying opera.
Her first acting career began in 1999 when she appeared in a TV series As The World Turns, a soap opera which was aired on CBS.
Amanda’s career breakthrough began in 2003 when she auditioned for Mean Girls as Regina George.
But she eventually got a role as Karen Smith, one of “The Plastics” in Mean Girls.
Even so, she still got a lot of popularity because of her role and also received many awards and nominations.
In 2005, Amanda starred in Nine Lives which was directed by Rodrigo Garcia and successfully won an award as Best Actress for Locarno International Film Festival.
Later, she then continued her career for Wildfire (2006), Gypsies, Tramps, & Thieves (2006), Alpha Dog (2006), and many more.
After that, Amanda then appeared again in Solstice (2008), Mamma Mia! (2008), Jennifer’s Body (20009), and Chloe (2009), movies that made her image as an actress become valuable.
In 2010, she gained more attention by starring in Dear John alongside Channing Tatum and also Letters to Juliet, a romantic comedy movie.
Starting from there, she then appeared in various popular movies, such as Red Riding Hood (2011), Gone (2012), Les Misérables (2012), and Pan (2015).
Amanda Seyfried came back in the sequel of Mamma Mia!, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018), which later was followed by The Art of Racing in the Rain (2019), Scoob! (2020), Mank (2020), and A Mouthful of Air (2021).

“Intimacy is a wonderful thing. It’s frustrating that growing up I thought it was wrong. It isn’t. Exploring your sexuality is important when you’re growing up.”
“I have jeans with holes in them and I have nice jeans. I have casual and I have dressy jeans. I’ve got all kinds.”
“If you can’t pronounce a word correctly, just don’t use it.”
“I’m a big fan of moustaches. I think it’s because – and this is not Freudian innuendo at all – my father has a moustache.”
“My focus is to not focus too much on one genre.”
“When you’re young, it’s hard not to get together with your costar.”
“I just did a five-day raw-food diet, but I’ll never do that again. It’s really hard! I’d wake up in the morning feeling great and go to bed feeling miserable, because dinner would be cucumbers, kale, and dressing. I mean, at the end of the day, if you can’t have a Girl Scout cookie and a piece of cheese, what is life all about?”
“I have a dirty mouth sometimes, and I’m very liberal, and that doesn’t always go down well in the film industry – especially when you’ve got to appeal to mums and daughters.”
“Maybe I should drive a hybrid. I do have a shirt that says, ‘Go Green.’”
“I sacrificed six years in L.A. I did my job out here. I made contacts and did the work I had to do.”
“I make hats. I’m on a hat frenzy. I’m on my eighth and I love it.”
Amanda Seyfried is bright, fun, humble, and beautiful. She always does kind and good things to spread kindness around the world. Salute!
