Amanda Seyfried dumps Josh Hartnett, ends a 4-mo, canine-centered romance

Amanda Seyfried Josh Hartnett

Here’s a photo of Amanda Seyfried with her nearly everpresent Australian shepherd, Finn, on 4/12. She is alone in this photo and without her latest male companion, Josh Hartnett, who has been Amanda’s boyfriend since January as we reported after they were spotted on a double date at the Chateau Marmont with (oddly enough) Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter. At the time, Josh was said to be crazy about Amanda and seemed perfect for her for two reasons: (1) She has a weakness for douchey types (i.e., Ryan Phillipe and Dominic Cooper), and (2) They’re both dog people. Sure enough, Josh and Amanda did their very own coupley, dog-centered photo op (someone’s rep even dictated a People story) on 3/20 when they took Finn and Josh’s mixed-breed dog, Iggy, to the beach in Malibu. Look at how happy both puppies are in these photos!

Then on 3/23, Josh and Amanda were snapped visiting a frame store (probably so they could frame pictures of their dogs):

Now just a few weeks later, the Mail is reporting that Josh and Amanda are totally over, and Amanda did the dumping because she’s supposedly still all hung up on Dominic Cooper. Really?

Amanda Seyfried is fast gaining a reputation as a maneater.

The U.S. star has dumped Hollywood heart-throb Josh Hartnett, 33, just four months into their affair.

Friends suggest she still holds a flame for her Mamma Mia! co-star and former boyfriend Dominic Cooper, 33. Hartnett is added to a growing list of former beaus that includes actors Ryan Phillippe, 37, and Alexander Skarsgård, 35.

Amanda, 26, told pals she called it a day as she is too busy filming Les Miserables in England to see New York-based Josh.

“Amanda’s been flying home to Los Angeles when she’s not in the studio,” says a friend. “She has been trying to see Josh but it hasn’t worked. She decided to end things.”

Pearl Harbor star Hartnett was said to be smitten with her.

They met at the start of the year and just weeks ago were seen shopping in LA and walking her dog, Finn, on the beach.

Friends say Amanda still has feelings for Cooper, whom she fell in love with on the set of Mamma Mia! in 2008.

Last summer, the pair had a rapprochement. But Cooper is currently dating actress Ruth Negga, 29, from BBC drama Criminal Justice.

I can sort of buy that Amanda is still into Dominic because, again, the douche is very strong in that man (remember, he slept with Lindsay Lohan). They have also been seeing each other again as recently as last June. So maybe Josh just isn’t douchey enough for Amanda, or maybe it’s really just a matter of not seeing each other enough due to work schedules. As to the Mail’s characterization of Amanda as a “maneater,” I’m shaking my head because it’s hard to think of someone who’s so admits she has panic attacks as a deliberate heartbreaker. Now that this short-lived romance is over, Josh and Amanda shall walk their respective dogs alone. How sad.

    Maybe their dogs broke up first.

    What is it about Dominic Cooper, he just seems to ooze sex or something. It’s disturbing to find out he slept with Lindsey Lohan though,geez. Now he’ll have to be one of those douchey guys I feel attracted to but leaves me feeling disgusted with myself (like Adam Levine).

  3. lower-case deb says:

    that last pic of josh hartnett, totally should meet up with sad keanu.
    the photo timing is perfectly timed, methinks. just made go aww.

  4. two_seconds_ago says:

    Finn and Baxter (Ryan Reynolds’ dog) should totally be BFFs! They’re both such famewhores :P

  5. Amy says:

    She dated Alexander Skarsgard?? I know she dated Ryan Philippe, there were pictures and everything… but I missed the True Blood guy.

    I want Ryan Reynolds and Amanda Seyfried to get together just so I can see pictures of their dogs together. They’re both adorable and seem to love the camera haha.

  6. really says:

    i can never remember who this guy is or what films he’s been in. i confuse him with channing tatum (thought he was in 21 jump street). and i confuse both of those guys with 1 or 2 dudes from american pie.
    oops.

    Awww…I love Amanda, I hope she gets rid of her douche-desire and finds a sweet, caring, non-celebrity guy. Maybe a little shy, with a quirky sense of humour and a house filled with dogs.

  8. alison8701 says:

    Also did Amanda at one point admit that her and Dominic would probably get back together? It was a very strange story that made her look… boy-crazy. emphasis on crazy.

    I’m joking! that’s offensive, but she has in the past come off a little needy. and dating those douchebags doesn’t help this co-dependent low self-esteem characterization of her from perpetuating itself.

    Anyone else read “canine” as “cocaine”? Dammit. -___-

    Aussies are the best! I really would love a red merle like Amanda’s eventually. I have a blue merle now and he’s such a great family dog.

    She’s cute and all, but boring as f–k.

    I love Josh hartnett! He’s like the sexy, silent type. Yes! I loved him in Black dahlia and he was in a Halloween movie.

    My husband & I met at the local dog park when our dogs were puppies so I love a good “celeb couple & their dogs” story. Bummer about this one, though. I like both of the people… and their dogs!

    I believe fully in the power of dogs to help & heal. My mom got me my furbaby after a bad break up with an abusive boyfriend. She was my sidekick & is my soul puppy. And then one day at the dog park she decided to play with a little black puppy whos daddy was (is!) totally hot. We’ve been together for 5 years & have an 11 month old baby boy. Doggies are the BEST :-)

    Amanda seems like a bit of slut to me. Why is it that women today seem to think it’s fine to sleep around with guy after guy after guy? What happened to being a virgin when you get married?
