Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Amanda Seyfried opens up in the August issue of ELLE, discussing past and future loves, and her risqué new movie role as an infamous porn star.

Talking about her prerequisites for a relationship, the actress shares, “Everybody I’ve dated I’ve been sexually attracted to immediately.” Seyfried elaborates, “Sparks don’t grow — your vagina doesn’t become more inclined to wanting someone just because you’re around them.”

On the subject of attraction, the star also addresses her status with ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper, saying they still “love each other” and remain connected. “He’ll always be in my life regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think,” proclaims Seyfried, promising that she is “never going to be with a guy that can’t deal with my friendship with him.”

Turning toward her current love life, Seyfried has someone in mind. “[He’s] someone separate from my industry life — I’ve known him since he was 16,” says Seyfried. “I picture him as the father of my children all the time.” But she says it’s “a fantasy right now.”

As for her upcoming biopic Lovelace, Seyfried is hinging a lot on her turn as titular porn star Linda Lovelace. Looking past how the racy film “could have ruined my career,” Seyfried calls the role “my chance to show them, to show the industry, to be recognized.”
