Just from looking at her, anyone can guess the answer to this question. But ask it anyway, man. You’re a professional!

Ms. Amanda Seyfried, star of Mamma Mia! and the new romantic tear-jerker Dear John, have you ever gotten a “Dear Amanda” letter?

“Oh nooo,” Seyfried says. “Well, not yet.”

She’s young. Give her time.

Letters are very much on Seyfried’s mind these days. Dear John is about a long distance romance between an Army Ranger and a college girl he met over spring break, a love kindled by letter writing. And Letters to Juliet, also starring Amanda and coming in May, is a lighter romance about a girl who discovers a “letter to Juliet” that lovers leave in the Verona courtyard where Shakespeare’s characters are thought to have lived, and sets out to find its author. Seyfried is just 24, and these movies have her believing she and her generation missed out on something.

“I grew up after letter writing died out. I mean, I had pen pals growing up, but with email and texts and everything else, who does that anymore? We’re losing the personal touch, the effort, the thought process that goes into writing something to someone, not just blurting it out in a text. The actual piece of paper is something I miss, too.

“Sure, it takes longer for a letter to be written, mailed and get to you. But it keeps love alive, to be thinking about when the mail comes, waiting for that next letter from somebody you love. You live by it. We need so much immediacy and we’re sacrificing something more personal, more intimate. We’re so impatient and I think texting and all this technology that gives us instant access adds to our anxiety. I struggle with that myself.”

One thing she isn’t struggling with is her career. A former child model turned screen ingénue (She made her film debut in Mean Girls), Seyfried studied and groomed herself for stage musicals (She was in Grease on Broadway), she could be pronounced a “charming discovery” by critics like Pete Hammond (Hollywood.com) when Mamma Mia! came out. But the girl had been prepping for that break-out. She sings in Dear John – no big surprise there. The novelty is that she accompanies herself on guitar and wrote the song herself.

“I’ve been playing for about six years. But that’s something I do in my private life. Lasse (Hallstrom, Öthe director) asked me to bring my guitar to the set one day, and I said ‘No,’ but I did it anyway…And now I’m on the soundtrack!”“

Seyfried (pronounced SIGH-frid) is on the critically acclaimed cable TV polygamy drama Big Love. A film of Oscar Wilde’s A Woman of No Importance is in her future. And her present? Maybe a little less time online and a little more with pen in hand.

“I did happen to have a boyfriend, not too long ago, who enjoyed writing me letters, because it is romantic and it makes you feel so special to get one. .

“I just came across an old love letter from him just the other day, and I just melted. The familiar hand-writing, the envelope, remembering how I felt when I got it. An amazing experience, even though we haven’t been together for a long time. But what’re we going to do when there are no love letters? You can’t save texts.”

Amanda Seyfried nearly turned down her risque role in movie “Chloe” – because the part required her to appear naked onscreen. The 24-year-old star plays the title role in the 2009 film, in which she shares a kiss with actress Julianne Moore – but admits she had to think twice before accepting the job and baring all.

She tells Britain’s OK! magazine, “My publicist and my mother didn’t want me to do “Chloe” because there was a lot of nudity. They were like, ‘I just don’t know about this.’ And of course my agent, Abby, is my right-hand man. Actually, what she feels means more than what I feel because she’s older and she’s an agent. She cares about my career more than I do. And so does my other agent, Sheila. They’re like my dream team. It’s great… Abby said, ‘This is a really, really good role. It’s hard to find at your age.’

She adds, “Julianne Moore came on board, too. I wasn’t going to do it for a while because we couldn’t find the right leading woman. And then Julianne signed up and we were like, ‘This is happening now.'”

Some of the captures contain nudity and are NOT SAFE FOR WORK OR SCHOOL.

Co-Star’s Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried apparently love the same shoes. Megan wore Brian Atwood heels to the press conference of her and Amanda’s movie ‘Jennifer’s Body’ on September 11, 2009. Amanda then wore the same exact heels heading to MuchMusic studio to promote her upcoming film ‘Dear John’ on January 27, 2010. The heels are nearly $500.00 and that is on sale. The original price was almost $700.00! Next we will see Megan wearing Amanda’s Valentino Applique Booties she wore to the Golden Globes after party. Where is my pair? I wear size 8 1/2!

There is more pictures of Amanda from her MuchMusic appearance with Channing Tatum in our gallery.

In the upcoming Dear John, Amanda Seyfried’s heart is in more than the letters she writes to her boyfriend.

The 24-year-old actress, who got our attention in Mean Girls and then went on to star in such diverse fare as Mamma Mia! and Big Love, has added yet another notch to her creative belt: singer-songwriter.

Seyfried’s “Little House,” a wistful love song, will be included on the Dear John soundtrack, but you can hear it for the first time right here!

Directed by Lasse Hallström and based on another tearjerker of a novel by The Notebook author Nicholas Sparks, Dear John revolves around the long-distance relationship—and the few stolen moments together—Seyfried’s character has with her Army soldier boyfriend (Channing Tatum) who opts to reenlist after 9/11.

Wow. Amanda sounds amazing!

Amanda Seyfried is officially a New Yorker! The actress bought a property in the Big Apple because it’s closer than LA to London, where her beau, Mamma Mia! co-star Dominic Cooper, lives.

She told Britain’s OK! magazine: “I bought an apartment in New York but I can’t move in until April because it needs renovating. I was hoping to move there now. But it’s OK. It’s worth it. And I have my relationship overseas, too. So New York’s just so much easier than Los Angeles as I’m always going to London. It’s nice to be closer — even if it’s still a long flight. Eleven hours is different from seven.”

The blonde beauty has previously said she and Dominic were well suited because they were so similar in both looks and personalities. She said: “We both look like frogs, with our wide-set eyes, we’re both indecisive and neither of us has a lot of willpower. When we met, I just found him funny. It was like we were the same person — except he’s British and a man!”

Amanda Seyfried decided to quit Big Love because she felt the TV show’s producers weren’t maximizing her potential.

The actress shot to fame in 2006 after landing a lead role in the series as a member of a polygamous Mormon family – but she announced last month she will be leaving after the fourth season.

And Seyfried admits she made the decision so she can focus on landing more film roles that will allow her to show off her talents.

She tells Britain’s OK! magazine, “I was frustrated because I wasn’t really working that much on it and it was six months of my life. My career is going places and I wasn’t able to do the things I wanted to. And I had to live in L.A.”
