For the March issue, Amanda Seyfried sat down with writer Jada Yuan to talk about everything from making movies to making babies, and of course, a little chat about boys.
On whether Dominic Cooper was the last guy she loved:
“My God, yeah. He was my last real boyfriend. We still joke about having kids, like, ‘If it doesn’t work out with other people, we might as well just have a child.’ And there’s a part of that that feels … possible.”
Glamour: Have you been thinking at all about kids?
Amanda: Oh yeah, I think about kids all the time. I feel like the next person I commit to, that’s going to be the guy who I’m going to have kids with. That’s in my crazy female brain. So that’s why I’m like, “I can’t commit.”
Glamour: [After you broke up with Dom] You were mostly dating noncelebs. Was that hard?
Amanda: You learn very quickly what people are so enamored with, and it’s not necessarily me.
Glamour: It’s just the fame?
Amanda: I think it’s all the bullshit of the idea of someone who’s famous, which seems more exotic than the fact. You have to be careful whom you date, but I had a great time this summer.
Glamour: Are you going through the, how shall I say, “twenties slut” phase? [Laughs.]
Amanda: No! I’m terrified of being promiscuous. I don’t like the feeling you get when it’s not something that you truly want to do, and I hate the emotional abuse you give yourself afterward. It’s just uncomfortable when you’re with somebody and you’re like, “I don’t really know if I’m even comfortable with this. Why did I? Eww!” I think dating can come without sex.
Glamour: You are blowing some minds right now.
Amanda: I think that’s a really fun way to do it. Right now I’m happy to not have someone’s naked body around me. Except for my dog’s. [Laughs.]
Glamour: You have said you would never date your In Time costar Justin Timberlake. Why’s that?
Amanda: Oh, I think any female that meets him at first is like, “I want to date you.” He seems so perfect, but you get to know him, and he’s a good pal. He’ll tell you what he really feels. But, you know, he’s really famous, which has its downsides.
On if she feels competitive with other young actresses:
“Yeah, sometimes. But the funny thing is, the girls that I’m always up against for roles are pretty nice and cool, like Emma Watson. She’s awesome. She’s really funny and smart. And Carey Mulligan. It’s flattering to be up against her because she’s really good, and she’s cool too…I think the era of the diva actress is coming to an end.”
On watching Linda Lovelace’s Deep Throat:
“What surprised me is the amount of pubic hair! I’m pretty sure I would never do a full frontal in a movie – for personal reasons, I wouldn’t really want to show that.”
