And not the other way around.

Last night, the always-lovely Amanda Seyfried landed at LAX. Also touching down was Dear John co-star Channing Tatum.

We’ll assume they pair is in town to begin a promotion frenzy. We assume the film, an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel, is a tear-jerker about the trials and tribulations and heartbreak involved in being really really painfully good-looking.

Luckily, Seyfried’s travels involved no lost luggage this time around!

As if “The Notebook” didn’t already raise women’s romantic expectations high enough, now guys have to deal with “Dear John,” another romance flick based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, which features a more muscular, Abercrombie model-looking heartthrob in the male protagonist role.

Thanks, Hollywood.

Channing Tatum (or “Chan” as he introduced himself to me) plays John Tyree, a soldier who meets Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried) when he jumps off a dock and into water to rescue her purse. The two instantly fall for each other and stay in touch when he’s away on duty by writing letters.

Like any other bitter male, I went into my interview with Tatum and Seyfried at their downtown hotel on Thursday hoping somewhat to find a flaw in Tatum. You know, so I could tell my female friends who swooned over him in the dancy-heavy “Step Up” films that he’s an arrogant jerk, a womanizer or, at the very least, a meathead.

Unfortunately, that plan backfired.

“Chan didn’t get much sleep last night because he’s working on a website devoted to expressing love,” said Seyfried, 24, who knitted a hat while answering questions alongside Tatum. “He’s reaching out to the public to share their love stories.”

Tatum, who married his “Step-Up” co-star, Jenna Dewan, is hoping to get the website, postthelove.com, done before “Dear John” hits theaters Feb. 5.

“You can put up a poem, a youtube video of yourself singing a song or a photo of yourself with ‘I love you’ written on your hand,” said Tatum, 29. “I don’t care what it is. I just want a venue for people to express themselves.”

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!
