Amanda Seyfried: It’s ‘sweet’ that my husband is jealous of my ex, ‘I’d rather he be jealous’

Amanda Seyfried come across poorly in the interview we covered yesterday, with Net-A-Porter The Edit. She defended the start of her relationship with her husband, Thomas Sadoski, saying that although he was married in 2015 when she met him and they “were both in bad relationships,” Thomas “never flirted, never disrespected his wife.” Amanda claims they didn’t get together until they were both single and reconnected on a different project in 2016. It was unclear in what context this came up or why she volunteered that information. She also said, of #Metoo, that “People have been s****y, but I’m pretty good at deflecting.” As I mentioned, I’ve liked her for a while but this interview made me question that.

The Mirror has new-sounding quotes from Amanda and I assume she gave them during a press conference or in a junket. (They don’t reveal where they spoke to her, so it’s hard to tell.) She explained that Thomas was jealous that she was working with her ex boyfriend, her costar Dominic Cooper, on Mamma Mia 2. Amanda is fine with that though, and she’d rather Thomas be jealous than ok with her working with an ex. She also shared her ass

Amanda, 32, married US actor Tom Sadoski, 42, in March last year but says she thinks her husband thought British actor Dominic Cooper, 40, who she was with for three years, was still in love with her.

“I think he has the same kind of issues that I would have if we were hanging out with his ex-girlfriend from long ago,” the actress says.

“I think it’s always like, ‘I’m so in love with this person, so that person must be so in love with her too’.

“I assume everyone’s in love with Tommy because I’m in love with him. I assume that everybody sees him the way I do.

“I’d guess he assumed Dominic is in love with me the way he’s in love with me. And it’s just not the case.

“It’s sweet. I’d rather he be jealous than completely fine with it. He’s been great. He’s very supportive and he loves this movie, and [he and Dominic] got along absolutely fine when we were shooting.”

Amanda dated Dominic, who reprises his role as on-screen boyfriend Sky, from 2008 to 2011.

“We split about three years after the movie came out and after we split we became really close friends,” she says.

“The last time I’d seen him was when I hung out with him on my 30th birthday. So it wasn’t weird seeing him again.”

The stuff Amanda said about assuming everyone else loves her husband like she does makes zero sense to me. I find my partner attractive and assume that others do too, but I don’t think everyone else loves him to the same extent or thinks he’s as special as I do, that’s absurd. Maybe she just didn’t clarify it well enough. Yes it is normal to be jealous to a point, but it can be unhealthy of course and it can be used in controlling ways. Would she be jealous if Thomas had children with his ex wife and had to spend time with her? Again, Amanda is saying stuff that seems out of character to me but maybe she hasn’t been as open up until now.

She did say, of being a mom, “I’m not as worried about what people think of me and I’m less worried about taking care of others when my priorities are so clear. Motherhood does that to you very quickly.” Aanda and Thomas have a nine-month-old baby girl, whose name they’re keeping a secret. Amanda’s mom is retired and is nannying for her. Amanda explained that her mom stays with the baby at home. I think this is the longest time Amanda has been apart from her daughter. Maybe that’s why she seems a bit “off.” I’m not being snarky! She said as much, that it was hard to travel without her and that she got an eye infection “because I was anticipating leaving my daughter for nine days.

    Yeah…these two aren’t going to last. My instincts on celebrity couples have been better than 90% and…yeah, nope. She’s convincing herself of a perfect life, that’s never a good sign.

    (My one miss on celeb couples the past few years was Brangelina, which blindsided me. Not because I thought they were super happy but because they were so brand conscious. Didn’t know there were extenuating circumstances).

    • Lee says:

      I agree. Usually the more celeb couples try hard to flaunt their ‘perfect life’, especially on social media, the more that facade is far far away from the truth behind closed doors.

    • Div says:

      She comes across as extremely emotional and volatile. I kind of believe there was no physical affair, because the strongly denying it in public could spur the ex to clap back and call her out, but I could see her having an emotional affair. The way she talks strongly reminds me of my cousin who is constantly falling madly love, even when she is dating someone, but thinks she’s emotionally healthy as she doesn’t physically cheat and waits a while. And with every new man he’s the best thing ever, she’d do anything for him, etc

    • magnoliarose says:

      She has a reputation for liking men who are already involved so this could mean she gets bored easily or maybe his jealousy is based on this.

  2. Trillian says:

    Women who think jealousy is a sign of love …. *facepalm*

    • Bettyrose says:


    • CurlyWurly says:

      Uh he is probably jealous because he knows she’s a cheater who loves drama. Once a cheater…

    • Alex Schuster says:

      Jealousy the poison of any relationship and if you misinterpret jealousy for love…a life of control and soul shrinking will come with it, until you lose yourself and become the tatters of someone you knew.

  3. Gaby says:

    I think she just meant that when you are in love with someone, you get that feeling of “how could anybody not love this person?” because they are so amazing in your own eyes and you justify their flaws, put them on a pedestal or something and she is talking about her ex, most people are a little jelly of the ex . Obviously is not true and it doesnt last but I think is kinda normal for new relationships.

    • Mel M says:

      @gaby-that’s exactly what I was trying to say in my comment but probably didn’t articulate it as well.

    • Baby Got Back Fat says:

      I just feel like that describes infatuation moreso than love….or teen love. Not how thirtysomething women do (at least I don’t)

  4. Mel M says:

    I kind of get what she’s saying but in the context of ex’s. Like you think because they were in love before that they still are or will remember why they loved the person even if they broke up and haven’t seen them in years? Idk maybe I can’t explain it well either. I do get the idea that you can think someone is really great, could be romantic or not, so you think that there is no reason anyone would dislike them.

  5. girl_ninja says:

    That girl is shady as F*ck.

  6. minx says:

    I don’t know why she irritates me but she does. She seems extremely smug.

    • Dazeem, Adele says:

      Came here to say the same thing, she gives me bad vibes. Don’t like her look, her attitude, her words, her acting, just yuck all the way around. At least now I can justify it, lol.

      • K-Peace says:

        I feel the same way about her. Have never gotten her appeal. I don’t think she’s a good actress, I think she’s homely, I think she’s a bad dresser, doesn’t seem to have anything particularly interesting to say, and seems very smug & arrogant. Don’t really understand why this woman gets attention & acting roles that could go to much better actresses.

    • dlc says:

      I think she might be kind of dumb, and she doesn’t realize it.

  7. Elena says:

    Her husband knows what they both did. That’s why he’s jealous about her working with her ex.
    *takes a long sip* Allegedly…

  8. Stumpycorgi says:

    “She also shared her ass” Typo (?) of the day!! 🤣

    • elle says:

      Came here to say the same thing.

      Curious to see the completion of that sentence. Did she share her ass in the interview or with her ex or what??

  9. Queenb says:

    She also said this in an interview a while ago:
    “On her ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper:: “We love each other … He’ll always be in my life regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think. I’m never going to be with a guy that can’t deal with my friendship with him.””

    • Original Jenns says:

      Wow. Because she’s more important in his life than his partner. Got it, Amanda. Hope you’re cool with the same, although it seems like double standards when it comes to her.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Ugh. It figures.

    • Carrie1 says:

      People who say things like this are full on avoid for me. Disrespecting others relationships and boundaries is stalking and abusive.

      It’s more than that … this is a cruel way to go through life. There is no compassion or empathy for others in this statement.

      She needs some help. So does the guy who married her obviously.

  10. Kris says:

    I’ve followed this site for years! Lots of funny stuff. But for a while the platform has been massaging its readers to be extremely decisive and condemning. ‘This persons said this and this a bit off; do we still like him / her??” No! In this case it’s a young women and first time mom and deeply in love. Can we be more gentle towards humans and not expect them to fill every sound bite requisite we have for them? This urge for utter correctness is exhausting. Save your energy to vote out the GOP and recognize who are still the good ones flaws and all.

    • Original Jenns says:

      It is possible to fight for change and also engage in some celebrity snark for a brain breather.

    • Amanda says:

      Thank you! I’ve been feeling the same way and you’ve articulated my thoughts wonderfully.

      • Anon33 says:

        The intent of the site is in the name. I’ve been reading this site for over ten years and the intent has always been to judge and snark in a fun way. The world around the site may have changed, but it’s not for you to decide what the site’s purpose or intent is. You can certainly find other places to spend your time if you don’t like it here.

      • Bridget says:

        But is it in a fun way? Because what the OP is commenting on is this culture of “you said the wrong thing – CANCELLED!”. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but I think it’s a valid point.

  11. Onemoretime says:

    Didn’t her ex Cooper leave her for Ruth Negga. Now Dominic and Ruth have broken up, her ex see’s the situation for what it is. The shadiness of how they got to together and her being dumped by an ex she was in love with. Yeah he should be worried!

  12. magnoliarose says:

    I can relate about leaving her baby for the first time. I was a mess. I cried constantly and I called my husband nearly every hour and that is when I knew I would retire and move on. My baby couldn’t travel with me because of restrictions and I was miserable.

    There is normal jealousy but they got together behind other people’s backs so I would guess an essential level of trust is missing.

  13. Carrie1 says:

    Nope. She’s a stalker isn’t she? Stalked her husband? Anyway, yep she’s not stable.

    • SM says:

      From what she says here I come away with the impression she is trying to set Domenic up for something. Maybe jist force him to talk aboit her and the time they were together. And it’s creepy. Apart from a quote someone posted of her about Domenic above about how he always be in her life, I remeber that she once said in an interview that she could not enjoy the swedish hunk Alex Skarsgard properly because she was hang up on Domenic with whom she was broken up at the time. Chica seems to be hang up on her ex a little bit. Also, she really is trying hard to push for “my husband is so hot and special, everyone find him atractive” narrative too much.
