Was Amanda Seyfried’s boyfriend married when they got together?

'The Way We Get By' photo call at the Second Stage Theatre
Amanda Seyfried keeps a very low profile, apart from the times we see her stepping out with her gorgeous Australian Shepherd, Finn, or posting photos of him on Instagram. That dog makes me like her so much, I swear he’s smiling in like half the photos we see of him. Amanda, 30, may just have gone down a notch in my estimation though. She’s currently dating an actor named Thomas Sadoski, 39. The official story is that Thomas and Amanda “reconnected” on the set of their new movie, The Last Word, after first having met during a play they did together in April of 2015 – when Thomas was married. Thomas filed for divorce from his wife around August of last year, the divorce got finalized a few months later and then he happened to work with Amanda again and that’s when they got romantic, just “during the last few weeks,” according to US Magazine. Only Radar calls that whole timeline into question, especially since Amanda was still with Justin Long last year and then she split with him right around the time that Thomas split with his wife.

Seyfried, 30, and Sadoski, 39, met on the set of their off-Broadway show The Way We Get By in April 2015. At the time, he was married to his wife of eight years, Kimberly Hope, and Seyfried was in a relationship with movie star Justin Long.

Sadoski filed for divorce from Hope on August 14, 2015, and Seyfried announced her split with Long just a few weeks after that.

Hope did not answer Sadoski’s petition, nor hire a lawyer, and so the divorce went into default and was granted on December 14, 2015, court records state.

Sadoski and Seyfried then reconnected while filming The Last World in recent weeks, Us Weekly reported.

When Amanda and Justin Long broke up I thought it was because she wanted to get married and start a family and he wasn’t down with that. She was talking about her eggs dying off just last summer. So is this a case of two people figuring out that they liked each other when they both just happened to be single or did they figure it out early on, notify their respective partners and then notify the press after enough time had passed? I still like Amanda but I’m side-eyeing this.

Oh and these are photos of Amanda and Thomas in May, 2015, when he was still married and she was with Justin Long.

    That dog is fabulous!

    • mia girl says:

      Mad love for Finn

    • Kitten says:

      RIDICULOUS. I love Shepherds of any kind but he’s one of the prettiest gents I’ve ever seen.

      Also, her hair is like…WTF. So much envy for that beautiful mop of hers.

      • Arlene says:

        He’s a collie, no?

      • Amelia says:

        Collies and Australian Shepherds have some shared lineage, but border collies on average tend to be smaller, a bit more intelligent and easier to train. You’ve got to be majorly patient with Australians, they’re super mischievous! But all that coiled up energy helps when you’ve got acres of land to cover.

      • LtoZ says:

        agree amelia. i LOVE my aussie but she is high maintenance. 2 miles a day at least, tortures the cat, is like glue to my husband and SO MUCH HAIR. we love her though – she is so stinking cute. i imagine her and Finn would be BFF.

      • Amelia says:

        Haha, sounds about right!
        She’s going to be like that until she’s at least 4, I reckon. They just don’t slow down!

      • Vizia says:

        You know what they say about Aussies–“if you don’t give them a job, they’ll make up a job”. God help you if they are the ones making the decision! (I love mine forever and with all my heart, but she’s too smart for her own good).

      • Kitten says:

        Oh sorry! I am ALWAYS confusing the two. They look so alike to me…
        Thanks for the explanation, Amelia 🙂
        My friend has an Aussie-the spotted blue kind and the BF’s sister has a Border Collie and I always think they’re the same type of guy.

        Which are the fellas/gals that are good at Frisbee?

      • Amelia says:

        Not sure about frisbee, but it tends to be flyball that’s dominated by herding dogs. (If memory serves, you’re not allowed to have a team made up entirely of collies or working sheepdogs in certain competitions because of their athleticism.)
        The rules vary depending on the governing body, but working dogs tend to dominate, so collies, Australian shepherds, GSDs, blue heelers are all pretty nifty 🙂

      • teacakes says:

        I know, that is one BEAUTIFUL dog and she clearly adores him – as she should!

        And that hair of hers? Is apparently completely undyed and all grew out of her head! If I didn’t already have a decent head of hair of my own, I’d be green with envy too.

    • Kate says:

      Agreed. Finn is the best part of this post.

      • What was that says:

        Totally agree ..I love him and wish he had Twitter like Carrie Fisher’s boy so I could see a photo of his handsome face every day!!

    • Arlene says:

      Ah, that explains it. I’ve a 4 yr old GSD though he’s not mischievous at all- he’s my long distance running dog, so he’s pretty quiet in the house. My friend owns two ACD x Collies who run rings around him in terms of playfulness.

    • Mimi says:

      There was a blind item last summer about these two fooling around, even before they announced their respective break ups! Obviously they cheated

  2. jinni says:

    Well if that Lainey Gossip blind is to be believed then the answer is yes.

    • shannon says:

      My thoughts too. She also reportedly had an affair with Peter Skaarsgard (sp?). He’s a skeeze anyway, but she’s def. no angel.

      • Betti says:

        Seems she likes to get involved with co-stars and wasn’t her cheating the reason she and Dominic Cooper didn’t work out?

    • McLori says:

      Yeah, the tea is out there on this woman’s ways.

    • Fiorella says:

      That’s what I was thinking! Her most recent blind I believe, plus another one or two

  3. Mia4s says:

    Great dog! Considering the stories about them cheating were around for awhile it is clear this “we only just fell in love” is BS. It’s not a bad PR game…but wow could it backfire.

    On the other hand, who cares? Who is he? And Amanda is just barely relevant these days. She must be barely top ten in her actress age range right now.

  4. Maum says:

    I want that dog!

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      Right?! The dog is everything…oh yeah Amanda get your shit together. Finn doesn’t approve of your life choices.

  5. INeedANap says:

    If their spark ignited while they were still coupled up, the right thing to do WAS to break it off with their respective partners. It’s hard on the other people, but I would not want to stay in a relationship with a man who wanted someone else. I would prefer he were honest and dumped me.

    • Beth says:

      ITA. Nothing about this says that they were cheating on their SOs either. If they met and fell in love while with other people, that’s obviously not an ideal situation, but the best course of action is to break up with the other people.

    • teacakes says:

      I mean, you can’t help developing feelings for someone else, but you CAN help the way you act in the aftermath.

      If that’s what happened with them and they broke it off with their partners to be with each other, it was the only honorable thing to do. Not ideal, but there’s no real alternative.

    • tealily says:

      Yeah, this is what I was thinking too. We have no evidence to the contrary. I’m thinking about a friend of mine who had been with her partner for years, then became friends with a guy at work. Over a couple of years, she gradually realized that she was with the wrong guy, and broke if off with the boyfriend. It was messy and painful, but she never cheated on him. I dunno. To me, that seems like the lesser evil than staying with someone you don’t think you’re meant to be with just because you think you probably should. Or maybe they cheated. *shrug*

      • MI6 says:

        @tealily: This. And why are people in the middle of a private relationship between two people, judging?

    • MB says:

      I just dont see the controversy here. This is not a story about how they have been busted cheating on their significant others. This is a story about how they both split up from their respective partners and then, after a period of time, they got together. I would have thought that if they fell in love with each other, this would have been the most respectful thing for either of them to do?

  6. willful ignorance says:


    Those are some suspect pictures…..

    • Kitten says:

      Right? I’m not usually one to engage in photo assumptions but….

      I’ve always liked Amanda but all the rumors are kind of hard to ignore at this point. I still love her as an actress, but I side-eye her the same way I side-eye January Jones. I side-eye Thomas too though…skeezy.

      • I Choose Me says:

        I’m right there with you Kitten. Plus I can’t forget the comments she made about Dominic Cooper. I’m paraphrasing obvs but something about them always having love for each other and they’ll always be in each other lives and how his/her respective partners will just have to be cool with that. It was just a very arrogant self-serving statement and indicated that she’s a woman who does not respect certain boundaries. So yeah, still like her as an actress but she stays getting major side-eye from me.

      • Kitten says:

        Ugh. I don’t think I ever heard that, I Choose. Gross.
        She’s beautiful but really arrogant, it seems.

      • teacakes says:

        at least things aren’t publicly messy with her though.

        I don’t really see the point in judging celebrities for their cheating ways, after realising that pretty much all the icons of Old Hollywood cheated on relationships at some point/hooked up with married people (Marilyn, both Hepburns, Spencer Tracy, hell even the famous Liz Taylor-Eddie Fisher-Debbie Reynolds triangle) you realise no one is safe from it, it’s just that they managed their images well enough to tarnish nothing and not get a rep as bad parents.

        That’s a lesson Batfleck, Gavin Rossdale and Co. should have learned.

      • Kitten says:

        @teacakes-I know what you’re saying. I just have a low opinion of people who cheat period, so I suppose that extends to celebs. That being said, I still think Amanda’s gorgeous and talented, and I would still watch her movies.
        Sure, maybe she may have just succumbed to the inherent temptation that exists in Hollywood, or maybe she has serious issues that makes the pursuit of “taken” (for lack of a better word) men appealing to her.

    • Esmom says:


    • Embee says:

      Yeah his body language, in particular, is super possessive/marking her as “his”. Why doesn’t he just lift his leg and pee on her lol?

    • PennyLane says:

      Matching body language as well as totally matching outfits. Yep, looks like a couple to me.

    • tealily says:

      They are so overtly flirtatious in these photos, it honestly makes me think they probably WEREN’T together. Why hide the relationship publicly, and then take photos like this? I’m sure the attraction probably started then and may have led to the breakups, but I’m really leaning towards no cheating involved.

      • StormsMama says:

        Me too
        You don’t flaunt it if you’re cheating
        Esp him being married
        Nope. In my mind it’s chemistry. And maybe they fell in love and realized it. Broke up with other partners. Took a Break and upon reuniting to film knew it was real

  7. Dhavynia says:

    I liked him in Newsroom, that’s all I got to say.
    She’s never been into all this drama, especially when it comes to her personal relationships (that I can remember) so this is kind of a surprise. Hope it lasts and/or it’s worth it

    • Esther says:

      she has dated lots of douchebags, she just isnt famous enough for all the dirty stuff to be in the press.

    • Kitten says:

      I wasn’t attracted to him at all The Newsroom but he looks ok in these pics. He doesn’t have much going on in the chin department so I think the beard helps.

      • Esther says:

        really? in pictures without it you can see a clear jawline and chin.

      • Kitten says:

        It’s funny, I looked back at the pics after I typed that and you’re right. It’s not the prominence of his chin but his mouth area. As I’m typing this I realize how nitpicky I sound but something is just off about his face.

    • t.fanty says:

      FWIW, I worked with Tom a couple of times – a long time ago. I liked him very much and never got a douche vibe from him (although he is very good at playing them). My sense is that is probably just unfortunate timing.

    • Jem says:

      She hasn’t? Because the same shady shit went down with Dominic Cooper too, not to mention the blinds implicating her and Sarsgaard.

  8. Esther says:

    the way the story is told now means that both were still in relationships and cheated. good for them that no one cares about them.

  9. javaj77 says:

    She has a reputation for not caring if her hookups are married or not.

  10. Bishg says:

    I like Amanda, but she has VERY questionable taste as far as men are concerned.
    If one is to believe the blind items (and I do, especially since the most recent one in particular ended up being very accurate) she doesn’t mind sleeping with married men co-stars.
    She also looks like the clingy type who falls in love very easily and secretly dreams about her married lover leaving his wife and kids for her.

    • Div says:

      I feel like Lainey has mentioned this before too…wasn’t there a blind about her being fixated on one of her former directors even though he wasn’t interested in her?

    • Anne says:

      I’ve heard speculation linking her with Peter Sarsgaard, whose beautiful wife I LOVE, so, yeah, – There’s a reputation here.

  11. Carol says:

    That dog is too cute. I love his little pig nose.

  12. Mimz says:

    I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt…
    And I feel like I know him from some other show/movie. Where?
    That dog is adorable. I want one.

  13. Div says:

    Lainey had a blind about this ages ago. I don’t always like her but she has a far better track record with her blinds than any other place. CDAN is total BS and he even got called out by the NYDN once and Blind Gossip is just educated guessing half the time/fanfiction about who is in the news. Anyway, that’s disappointing if it’s true but I don’t know why anyone is surprised…in Hollywood it seems like 3/4s of them have affairs with co-stars or so on. I feel like you must have a lot of confidence and a strong relationship to be married to someone who is on set, sometimes across the country from where you live, for 3-4 months in an isolated bubble where they are often encouraged to “get” into character…and that “character” may be the love interest of someone else. I know it’s just acting and people need self-control…but I can see how that might be a dangerous road to go down if you are already in a rocky relationship.

    Whatever happened to Amanda anyway? She was going to be the “next big thing” and was arguably even a “big” thing for about a year or two. I know we replace our “it girls” quickly but her reign seemed particularly quick.

    • Kitten says:

      She’s been steadily working. A lot, actually. Right now she’s filming the Twin Peaks reboot, because what would we do without YET another reboot?

      • Div says:

        That’s true…..I guess I’m just curious because about four to five years ago it seemed like she was going to have an Emma Stone type of career instead of a solid B to B- level career.

    • Esther says:

      you wont be with an actress or actor and expect them to be faithful.

    • Annie says:

      I was going to mention Lainey’s blind as well.
      She mentioned that not only were they seeing each other regularly, but she would follow him on vacations with his wife and he’d sneak out to see her with random ass excuses.
      She loves married dudes. This is not the first time.

  14. Farah says:

    Most people guessed they were the couple in Lainey’s blind item. According to that pierce, she stalked him on his vacation with his wife! They were hooking up right under her noes.

  15. lila fowler says:

    You’ll lose him the way you got him, sis. Relationships that start with cheating never fail to amuse me. They always end up splitting up eventually, usually due to someone CHEATING. Look at Garner and Affleck. I’m glad Justin Long got away from Seyfried. She sucks.

    • Div says:

      I was going to say something similar. I do think cheaters can reform their assh*ole ways sometimes BUT when a relationship is born of cheating..that’s a bad sign 98% of the time. A relationship should have a solid, strong beginning…and cheating sure as hell isn’t a good base. I think Tom Hanks/Rita Wilson are the only famous couple that ever stayed together without constant rumors when their beginnings were so murky (Tom admitted to leaving his first wife for Rita).

      • Lurker says:

        Didn’t Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward start off as an affair while he was still married?

    • Hannah says:

      That already happened, Dominic copper cheated on his girlfriend with Amanda on the set of mama Mia, later copper cheated on Amanda with his next girlfriend Ruth Negga.

    • kibbles says:

      People who like to cheat and hook-up while already in a relationship/marriage almost never change their ways. It’s possible but that’s like the “he’s just not that into you” reality. There are exceptions to the rule, but those are few and far between. I have never had a problem with being monogamous, so I don’t understand those who are perfectly fine with ruining their own or another person’s family. If monogamy is a problem for someone well into their 30s or 40s, chances are that person won’t settle down for a very long while if ever.

  16. Joni says:

    The blind item about her following him and his wife on vacation was vile. They’re both trash (if it’s true).

  17. kri says:

    The dog has the most personality by far. Also he knows how to give major face. That dude looks super sketchy and smug. Also they are wearing matching shoes-so NO.

  18. Snowflake says:

    I love that she posted a picture of herself with no makeup, And not doing the fish face. Nice to see a normal picture.

  19. Charlotte15 says:

    Wait! Wasn’t she also rumored to have had an affair with Peter Sarsgaard while he was married, as well? Because Thomas and Peter co-starred in that miniseries “The Slap” that aired last spring…I wonder if there was any overlap in their relationships with her? I don’t know when “The Slap” was actually filmed, though. Awkward!

    Also: can someone please post a link to the vacation-stalking story? That is absolutely disgusting, if true. I used to really like Amanda but she seems to be beyond callous as to how she treats people in her personal life. Awful.

    And I agree with Lila Fowler that she will lose him the exact same way she “got” him.
    Has Amanda here never heard of karma, or does she think she’s the special snowflake to whom it doesn’t apply? 🙄

    The dog is really the only thing making her at all likable at this point.

  20. lucy2 says:

    She is gorgeous and her dog is awesome, but her personal life seems a little messy.

  21. Sasha says:

    Meh, I like her. She’s low-key. I don’t really believe in blind items as I think they are pure speculation until there is some credible evidence. Her dog is gorgeous and I love her bond with him.

  22. Green Is Good says:

    Finn is a true Star! What charisma!

  23. Hannah says:

    I like her but she got involved with Dominic cooper while he was in a relationship, it’s not that hard imagining her doing this again. Her dog is beautiful.

  24. I Choose Me says:

    Finn is the business. Always.

  25. Mar says:

    That dog!!! Omg he’s such a babe. I’ve always been about her dog

  26. Jem says:

    I think she’s gorgeous, but she likes things messy. Dominic Cooper was with his lady for 12 years before he and Amanda had an affair on set and their affair was confirmed by Joanna. *and* by Amanda. She’s got a pattern.

    • A.Key says:

      Yeah but Cooper then cheated on Amanda later and broke her heart if I remember the gossip correctly.

  27. Naddie says:

    I was going to give an opinion about Amanda or the guy whose name I already forgot because of this magnificent dog. But all I can see is Finn.

  28. SillyBee says:

    Only here for Finn. That is also a classic Aussie-in-the-sun smile! My two Aussies would like to date Finn. 😉

  29. A.Key says:

    Could have gone three different ways, with them cheating physically, emotionally or not at all.
    But what do you do if you’re in a relationship and you fall for another person? Isn’t ending the relationship the only right answer? What was she supposed to do, stay with Long and pretend? Long deserves better, and if she broke it off before anything happened between her and this dude, then she did the right thing.

  30. 5minutes says:

    Having no idea who the boyfriend is or about the dog, I thought at first that the boyfriend was an actual shepherd in australia and was like ‘woa! that’s awesome’ – but the dog is cute, too.

  31. Magnoliarose says:

    Finn is adorable and huggable. Amanda is a ? for me. Or maybe I just don’t care enough to take time to form an opinion. But give me cute dog pics forever.

  32. mialouise says:

    Don’t care who was married to whom, all I care about is that BEAUTIFUL and expressive doggie!!!

  33. majicou says:

    Holy shit that middle picture

  34. kay says:

    safe to say that her eggs will keep just dying for some time, because if this guy cheated on his wife, whom he has a little child with, he’ll be cheating on Amanda with the next co-star he gets personal with, and I don’t see him wanting a family right now, having just divorced and having a little child with his ex. You loss them the way you get them, dear Amanda. I always have the vibe that Justin was way too much of a great guy for her sleazy a**

    • kay says:

      EDIT to add this: I follow Amer Tamblyn on IG. Many months ago, right when Amanda and Thomas were doing the play, Amber (she’s close friends with Thomas) posted a pic of them and captioned “these two lovebirds”…she was still dating Justin and he was still married…just saying…

      • what says:

        Wow! It proves she cheated on her boyfriend and he cheated on his wife.
        And the blind item says: “they’re totally together now but are trying to put enough distance between the end of the marriage and their coming out so that people won’t suspect how they started, if that is, they last that long.”

        But I think people will always say she is a nice girl. People hate cheaters and their lovers (Brad Pitt and Angelina) but they don’t hate Amanda. Why?
