Amanda Seyfried told she needs to do Botox!

Can you believe that!? She’s stunning!

Amanda Seyfried is on the April cover of Elle Magazine, and in and interview with the magazine, she opens up about her breakup from boyfriend Dominic Cooper (the couple dated for a year after they starred together in ‘Mamma Mia!’), her current love life, her best on-screen kisses, and being inspired by Meryl Streep.

On being told she needed to get botox: “I was like, Damn you! But we’re in Hollywood. I’m on a huge screen. With these new digital cameras, you can see the peach fuzz on my face.”

On her best on-screen kisses: “I can’t lie. It didn’t suck making out with Channing [Tatum] and Justin [Timberlake]. “

On who she would like to be paired up with next: “I’d really love to make out with Michael Fassbender. Put me in a movie with that guy. I’m serious. Wow.”

On falling in love on set: “[It is] one of the easiest things in the world. You’re both open. You’re put in a situation where you have to make out with each other. It’s easy for things to get carried away.”

On how she thought her recent ex Dominic Cooper was breaking up with his longtime girlfriend to be with her: “I was just kind of foolishly thinking that the two of them were done and Dom and I were involved. But we weren’t really as involved as I thought. So I got my heart broken pretty hard.”

On eventually getting back together with Cooper: “…and then it took a long time for us to break up again. After that, it’s really hard to open myself up to a new person. Really hard.”

On her rumored romance with Ryan Phillippe: “Um, yeah. I’ve been ‘seen’ with him.”

On Alexander Skarsgård: “We dated. He’s superfunny, but I was too involved with Dom.”

On being inspired by Meryl Streep’s famously down-to-earth attitude: “Meryl, she makes herself very accessible right away, almost too accessible. That’s what I do. And it totally works. My thing about meeting people—men, women, people in general—is to desensitize them, kind of shock them a little bit, to make myself accessible.”

Top 10 Beauty Faux Pas Made Popular

Marc Jacobs: Theatrical Makeup
Clowning around is typically reserved for the circus, but at Jacobs’ show white-painted faces, dramatic eyeliner, and red lips ruled. “I wanted the models to look like characters—like ballerinas who just stepped off the stage,” says makeup maestro François Nars about the look. “It’s ’30s stage makeup with a modern edge. Dancers in theater and opera always had white faces, pointed lips, and an eye that was drawn outward, not upward.”

Rue du Mail: Gray Roots
Going prematurely gray is an unwelcome tress transformation for most women. But at Rue du Mail’s show, thanks to a liberal dusting of hair powder, models boldly walked the runway with halfway–down–the–head gray, making silver strands a dramatic do.

Tracy Reese: Clumpy Mascara and Penciled-In Brows
TV commercials have drilled the importance of mascara brushes that “separate each lash” into our heads. And Brooke Shields’ lush arches have long been coveted. But at Reese’s spring 2010 show, makeup artist Charlotte Willer was intent on creating stuck-together lashes and superthin brows. “It’s a modernized ’20s look,” says the Maybelline global makeup artist. “We hid the eyebrows with concealer and drew a line over each with pencil. For lashes, we wanted them spiky so that they stood out. After brushing mascara on, I pushed lashes together so they’d appear clumped.”

Ohne Titel: Uncovered Wig Wraps
What lies beneath a wig is typically not meant for public display—but at Ohne Titel’s show, stylist Jimmy Paul purposely left models’ wig-ready heads uncovered. Inspired by the age-old hair-wrapping technique, Paul misted strands with a strong-hold spray and circled them around the head. To secure, he wove sections together with thread and applied Bumble and bumble Hair Powder for matte texture.

Preen: Matte Hair
Shiny tresses are one of the most sought-after attributes, but to offset spring’s abundance of shimmering fabrics, this season, matte hair is a must. “If clothes are very light-reflective pairing high-gloss hair with them can be too much,” says Guido Palau, who says he uses dry shampoo or baby powder on blow-dried hair to dull it down. “The two–day–old matte look is cooler—it’s not like you’re trying too hard.”

Palau isn’t the only stylist opting for matte: To complement the metallic fabrics in Preen’s spring 2010 collection, Laurent Phillippon used Bumble and bumble Surf Spray. “Normally, you’d spray the product on your hair and let it air-dry. But for Preen, I’m blow-drying with a flat brush using the Surf Spray,” says Phillippon. “This gives the hair really nice hold and a certain amount of matte texture—it’s still light and clean but has an interesting matte effect.”
