Amanda Seyfried & Justin Long are hooking up now: weird couple?

Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfried and her excellent trench coat are currently in London promoting Lovelace. Of course, Amanda’s been touring for this movie for weeks, but we haven’t covered a lot of it becasue she’s largely talking about pr0n, which makes sense given the movie’s subject matter. At the moment though, let’s talk about Amanda’s new love/lust interest, Justin Long. Last week, Page Six revealed that these two were almost inseparable” and “cozy in a corner” on Aug 1 at a Cinema Society afterparty. Now Us Weekly says they’re heating up and “seeing where it goes.”

You might wonder what a woman like Amanda would see in an average guy like Justin. What do we know about Justin Long other than his status as recovering “Mac guy” who has managed to carve out a semi-hipsterish movie career in the aftermath? I only say “hipster” because Justin tends to look a little bit scruffy and often appears in very “twee” movies (although he was great in Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell too). He also dated Drew Barrymore off-and-on for a few years and, at the time, was notorious for his love of going downtown, which may have been why Drew kept him around for so long. Now he might be offering his services to Ms. Amanda:

Justin Long

Amanda Seyfried’s new beau is no stranger to the Hollywood scene. According to several sources, the Lovelace actress’ latest hookup is none other than iSteve actor Justin Long.

“Justin is super private about his relationships, [so] I’m not positive how they exactly met, but they’ve known each other for awhile, when they were seeing other people,” a source tells Us. “They recently started hanging out more, going on date-like activities. They’re both busy … but they’re seeing where it goes.”

Adds another source, the new couple have a “similar sense of humor.”

Though the pair has remained low-key about their relationship, an eyewitness at a July 30 event for the Lovelace premiere tells Us that they were “inseparable.”

“Justin came alone and stayed close to Amanda all night,” the source says. “They weren’t making out or anything like that, but they were just inseparable during the event. He hung out when she talked with others.”

[From Us Weekly]

Who knows, this could just be a quick hookup thing because Amanda goes through men at warp speed, but I don’t think she’s sleeping with all of them by any stretch. She’s already stated that she’s terrified of being promiscuous as well as her belief that you can’t talk your vagina into attraction; so I would like to think she keeps these dudes around long enough to see if she wants to get physical and, if not, buh bye.

Then again, Amanda is famous for dating douches too. As in Dominic Cooper, Ryan Phillipe, and Josh Hartnett. So maybe Justin is a bit of a douche, and she might just be attracted to that too.

    My God, she is so beautiful. I haven’t seen such beauty in Hollywood since young Angelina.

    • thunderthighs says:

      Agreed. Her hair is incredible and her eyes are gorgeous.

    • Chinoiserie says:

      I know right? Her hair is glorious and she does not look like everybody else.

      • RPG says:

        She DOESN’T look like anyone else (i.e. any young blonde H’wood actress)? No offense, but what’re you smoking?

      • metallicwow says:

        I agree – I think she does have a unique look! There are mainstream boring blondes (Julianne Hough, Carrie Underwood, Kaley Cuoco), and then are some that look original.

    • Bijlee says:

      I mean she’s pretty guys, but really?

      • silken_floss says:

        LOL yeah… I don’t get the hype either

      • bns says:

        LOL right?

      • justme87 says:

        I’m with you, I never understand why people think shes so beautiful. She’s strange looking to me. Justin on the other hand? Id hit it. He’s cute in a goofy and fun way. I loved him in he’s just not that into you.

      • Lauren says:

        I’m in this camp. She’s definitely pretty, but not OMGamazing. To me, her hair is a blah, dishwater color that doesn’t do much for her complexion. But she seems like a nice person and apparently cares about animals a lot, which is cool in my book.

    • Dani says:

      Angelina wasn’t that great, honestly.

      • Tia says:

        Oh how dare you mention the saint in the same sentence as a mere mortal. You must make penance, lest the gods who avenge privilleged actresses strike you dead. And in case you missed it, I am mocking the stans and their never ending over reactions to the mere mention of the saint.

      • Spooks says:

        I don’t think she is a saint, her acting is mediocre, her body is mediocre, but her face is perfection. To me.

      • Bina says:

        After all that money she spent on plastic surgery, her face better be perfection!

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        @tia: You crack me up. Better be ready to climb a close by tree, though.

      • Sabrine says:

        Angelina was stunning when she was young, complete and utter perfection.

      • Kim1 says:

        @Bina yeah her plastic surgeons did a great job on Jolie’s kids too

    • Stef Leppard says:

      That is some amazing hair! And I have always thought she had really nice lips.

    • Liv says:

      That’s what I thought when I saw the pictures above. She’s so pretty and her hair is awesome. She also seems nice and down to earth. She’s such a natural beauty.

    • Amelia says:

      I don’t think Amanda is beautiful, attractive mm, and I don’t think her eyes are beautiful either,they are a bit bulgy. No Jolie is far more good looking than this girl.

  2. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I hate the phrase “why is he a thing?” but I have to admit that it comes to mind here.

    • Anna says:

      Aww, I think he’s cute in a funny, dorky, under the radar kind of way. I actually like this pairing.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        What does he do though? Wasn’t he in some commercials and a couple rom coms?

        I need more than that to like this guy…

      • Anna says:

        Drew Barrymore’s ex; Going the Distance; He’s just not that into you; New Girl. He’s legit funny altho I think there was some reputational sleaze about him – but I never caught on as to why, besides the general ‘air’ of it.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Oh I see.
        I don’t get “sleaze” at all from him but I feel like his PR people are selling the “lovable dork” image and I’m not buying what they’re selling.
        Ok, maybe I just have an irrational dislike for the guy, maybe he’s total a sweetheart and I’m just a raging bitch. I can accept that.

        I feel the same way about Garfield–he just annoys me.

        Let’s go get vodka sodas, Anna so I can complain more about Justin Long.

      • Anna says:

        Let’s go get vodka sodas, period.

        We can finalize out b*tch list while getting ready for the 2nd round.

        PS – I get a TOTALLY different vibe from Garfield. And I like both well enough to be ok w them , but not enough to really care about either.

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        OMG. I raise my afternoon vodka Red Bull to you ladies.

        OKitt, I kept trying to reply to you in a controversial post a few weeks ago, but wasn’t allowed. I wasn’t ignoring you, sorry.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Honestly, depending on how many vodka sodas you get in me, I might do a 180 on both Long AND Garfield. It wouldn’t be the first time I got “vodka glasses”.

        @LuLu-which post was it? Lately I’ve been too tired to get worked up—I’m missing out on all the screaming ;)

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        @OKitt, that’s OK, if you don’t remember I won’t invoke. ;)

      • Isa says:

        You would think I had been drinking, I thought you were talking about Garfield the cat.

        I thought Justin made sense with Drew. I liked him in Waiting and jeepers creepers.

  3. Little Darling says:

    For some reason I like this coupling. He has always seemed pretty cool and like a loyal decent boyfriend.

    I endorse this. He’s a definite step up, albeit not someone I would ever match with her.

    • RocketMerry says:

      I know, right?! Maybe this time she got herself a nice one! Good choice, Amanda.

      Sigh, she’s so damn beautiful.

    • Liv says:

      Eh, I’m torn. I really liked him with Drew Barrymore, I can’t picture him with Amanda though. He seems too nerdy for her.

      Plus I can’t unpicture his character on New Girl! Ugh, such a crazy guy! ;-)

  4. blue marie says:

    well, he’s gotta be offering something good cause I don’t get it BUT I did like him on The New Girl. seems kinda dorky, but apparently it works for him.

  5. sirsnarksalot says:

    I find her looks weirdly fascinating…her eyes are spaced so far apart. I get the impression from interviews that she is practically as dumb as her Mean Girls character and that she only goes for douchebags. So yeah, rumours about Justin being a tool are probably true.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      She comes across as SO unintelligent in interviews.

      • Bijlee says:

        Seriously! What’s wrong with her? She sounds so stupid sometimes.

      • Anna says:

        I dont think dumb as much as just very, very bland.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        No, if I thought she was “bland” I would have said so–bland is excusable to me.

        I honestly find her very inarticulate and unintelligent. She might be trying to be cute/funny but doesn’t have the charisma to carry it off. Recall that she’s the girl that said “only lesbians can resist the Trousersnake” in reference to Justin Timberlake.

        She might not be stupid, but she really does come across that way. But it’s not just the things that she says, it’s the way she says it…a lot of long pauses and “I don’t knows”. Again, maybe she’s just not comfortable in interviews or something.

      • Liv says:

        Really? Dammit, I have to see interviews with her!

      • Spooks says:

        “Seyfried has stated that she suffers from anxiety and panic attacks.She also suffers from stage fright, and has never performed in theatre because of it.”
        From her wikipedia page. It might be because of that.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @Spooks-eh, ok. Maybe I’m being a bit harsh. It’s not that I don’t like her as an actress-quite the contrary actually- I’m just not sure she’s great off-screen.

        I love Bale..I like De Niro too but neither are really great in interviews. Sometimes on-screen charisma doesn’t translate to off-screen charisma.

      • mercy says:

        Maybe the less personality they have irl, the easier it is to lose themselves in a role, or inhabit their characters.

    • Jayna says:

      I saw her in Lovelace this past weekend, and she was captivating with her brown curly wig. The camera loved her face and she did a fantastic job. The movie is good, not great, but she really surprised me in the role.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I heard she was really solid in that. I think she’s talented, which is why I’m always disappointed with her interviews.

        Maybe she’s just shy or awkward, but honestly that *shyness* represents as *stupid*, unfortunately.

  6. Val says:

    I always liked Justin Long. Who knows, maybe they’ll be together for the long run.

  7. mimi says:

    She’s had so many Hollywood boyfriends/hook ups that I’ve lost count a long time ago. Wonder how long this one will last.

  8. Relli says:

    or maybe, maybe she is dating against type this time hoping that the end result is different this time.

    What can I say he won me over in Accepted, every time that movie is on TV I have to watch.

  9. Mrs Jones says:

    Justin Long is great. No douchiness here at all though I admit it’s a strange pairing. If tons of Celebitchy girls can lust after Cumberbatch, which I don’t understand personally (quirky, weird in a not attractive way- am I the only one here?), then there may be many of us lusting after Justin. Again, am I the only one here?

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh heck no – Justin fulfills all my ‘confident dork’ needs. I like his humor and this new (to me) information about his dining presences only ups his place on the list.

      Shall we thumb-wrestle to see who goes first?

    • Erinn says:

      Not alone! I adore the guy.

    • mercy says:

      His looks aren’t my thing, but I’ve always liked him as an actor. Waiting, Accepted, his stint on New Girl and appearances in a bunch of other TV shows and movies. He has more presence and conveys more warmth, intelligence, and humour than many young comedic actors and latter day SNL’ers.

      I haven’t seen enough of Amanda to have an opinion on her, but Justin and Drew seemed like a better match. I liked them better together than the guy she ended up marrying.

      I read somewhere that Kate Mara left her bf Max Minghella for Justin while they were filming a movie together, so he must have something because Max is a cutie (not to mention scion of the wonderful Anthony Minghella.)

    • quixotic1205 says:

      @Mrs. Jones- I agree with you about Cumberbitch. I do not see the draw. His face looks funky and there’s just something off. But then again, my “something off” is someone else’s “let’s get something on!”.

    • Ladyanne says:

      I’m with you ! And I loved loved him in New Girl.

    • Mrs Jones says:

      Thank you ladies! quixotic1205, I agree with you on the 1 person’s thing is not the other’s. What irked me in the comment about Justin was that he was called a douche, not the remarks about his looks. j.eyre, it’s on!

  10. roxy750 says:

    She is SO not all that.

  11. lucy2 says:

    I don’t find him super attractive, but he’s cute and seems like a nice guy. That’s better than a hotter but douchier guy.
    She is SO beautiful.

  12. GUEST says:

    Loved him in “He’s just not that into you”…I don’t think Drew would have dated him so long if he was a douche. This is a cute couple I think…we will have to see what Amanda’s vagina thinks apparently.

  13. Keats says:

    Weird. I went on a long and detailed rant a few days ago on why the supposed ‘hotness’ of Justin Long annoys me to my friend, who responded ‘eh, he’s cute enough.’

    • j.eyre says:

      Don’t you hate when a good rant is dismissed with an “eh” statement? The effort alone deserves more acknowledgement.

      Feel free to rant again and I shall come back with adamant dissension followed by huffy indignation (and then apologize for my brashness)

  14. Wrachul says:

    Well this seems random. I’ve never been into him myself.. Just don’t find him attractive. But from what I’ve read he seems like a pretty decent, intelligent guy. Sometimes I think she is so pretty, she definitely has a different look. Agree with her having gorgeous hair. Not sure about her personality, haven’t seen or read too many interviews. I remember reading something in the past about her having an obsession with getting stuffed animals from a taxidermist. Anyone else remember this? Random but it just popped in my head.

  15. bettyrose says:

    She’s stunningly beautiful and very successful. He’s Justin Long. I could see him maybe being an awesone devoted BF but if it’s just a fling she’s going to ruin him for all other women. Like flying first class just once.

  16. AllyUK says:

    Awww..I like this pairing, both dorks, both adore their dogs. I don’t get the douche vibe from Justin, he’ll always be Warren Cheswick to me. Considering her beauty and talent she’s seems pretty low key.

    • SLM says:

      Thank you! Someone else who remembers the awesome little “Ed” show, and Justin’s role (which came before the Mac commercials). I’ve always liked Justin.

    • Deftie says:

      I like the pairing too. And I loved him (about 10 years ago) in Jeepers Creepers. Anybody remembers?

      • I Choose Me says:

        Yep. He was also in one of my fave movies of all time – Galaxy Quest.

        I liked him with Drew was oddly disappointed it didn’t work out and I’m cool with the Amanda pairing. (Like they need my approval) ;)

  17. RPG says:

    I just hope she’s not a PC girl.

  18. Claudia says:

    Justin actually has great comedic timing and improvisational skills. Youtube the blooper/outtakes reel of Zack and Miri Make a Porno; him and Seth Rogen improvised the whole scene and kept going, so there’s a lot of material there that wasn’t used.

  19. mayamae says:

    I didn’t know that Josh Hartnet was a douche. What has he done, I wonder?

    I’ve seen very little of his acting, but I just love him in 30 Days of Night.

  20. Bex says:

    I’m into Justin’s dorky goofiness. He seems less “unattainable hot guy” and more “real guy”. Something about his chin has always bugged me but I like his overall vibe.

    I like Amanda. She can look weird sometimes but I find her way more appealing than the cookie cutter, spray tanned, overprocessed blondes that are out there. Good luck to them!

  21. Carolyn says:

    Amanda isn’t a great actress (Les Mis?) yet she was cute in Mama Mia. The camera loves her.

    So not interested in seeing her in Lovelace. An unusual choice. Suppose no-one else wanted it after Lohan tainted it.

    • Shelly says:

      I saw Lovelace yesterday, and Amanda is wonderful in it. She nailed it. It’s a decent movie. Oh, and Lovelace is not the film that Lohan was going to do. That one was/is called Inferno, and Malin Akerman replaced Lindsay in that movie. Amanda’s film has nothing to do with Lindsay Lohan and never did.

  22. Apple says:

    How long have they been together? I’ve never heard of them being a couple until today.

  23. Lindy says:

    I actually have met him once or twice (looooong ago). And he’s really delightful and not at all douchey.
