Amanda Seyfried is “subtle to a fault” with her boobs out


What’s the verdict on Amanda Seyfried? I usually come down thinking she’s a very talented and underrated actress who seems to be a pretty sweet girl in real life. I also think she looks like a young Uma Thurman, and I mean that as a compliment – I think it’s those huge, hypnotic eyes. But other than that stuff, I don’t really know her, or have strong feelings one way or the other. I do have strong feelings about this dress, however. I feel very strongly that Amanda should get a new stylist, someone who won’t put Amanda in a dress that makes her lovely boobs look like they’re cooped up behind a mesh screen.

Anyway, here are Amanda and Channing Tatum at the premiere of their new film together, Dear John. By all accounts, Dear John is a weepy melodrama about a college student (Amanda) who falls in love with a dude (Channing) on leave from active-duty. When he goes back to war (Afghanistan? Iraq? I don’t know), their relationship ebbs and flows through the written word.

Amanda Seyfried says audiences will need to have plenty of tissues handy when Dear John hits UK cinemas. At the Hollywood premiere for the romantic drama, the actress said crying in the cinema isn’t something we should be ashamed of.

“It’s good, you need it,” she told reporters on the red carpet. “I think [if it’s] a love story, as sad as it can be, it brings something really good out of everybody that sees something in that.”

In the film, the Mamma Mia! actress plays a college student who falls for a soldier (played by Channing Tatum) while he’s home on leave.

“It was pretty realistic, it was dealing with things that I remember going through,” she explained. “Everything was being touched on in this movie. Everything that was surrounding the love story was real, things that needed having attention drawn to them.”

Amanda said working with Channing had been “amazing”.

“He’s awesome, he’s the most fun co-star I’ve ever had in my life,” she said.

Even though this is a rare starring role for Amanda, she hasn’t been giving very many interviews to promote this film, from what I can tell. She did sit down with Teen Hollywood to try to get the younger kids to see the film, I suppose. I think of them now as “the Twihard demographic”. And honestly, this film might appeal to them. The interview is supremely boring (full piece here), but one answer Amanda gave cracked me up. She was asked about the melodrama in the film, and Amanda replies: “No. The funny thing is, I’ve always been subtle to a fault. I like to be more thoughtful. I’ve always found that some of the words in some of the scripts just kind of get in the way depending upon how things are written. This was a really good script and written well…I wasn’t really scared about slipping into melodrama too much. I think the moments where it is kind of overly-sentimental, are okay. You’ve got to have a little bit.” Who describes themselves as “subtle to a fault”? For goodness sake.

Here’s the trailer for Dear John:

    Oh, he brings out the MRS ROBINSON in me! Yummmmmmm!

  2. Essie says:

    Well, this movie will bomb just like that “When in Rome” thing did. Tatum cannot act and nobody knows who Amanda is. Plus, from watching the trailer, well, who would want to spend $10 bucks on this? But, of course I could be wrong!!!

    Question: Is that some kind of string across her boobies? Why? I’m tired of these young girls showing their assets. Covering up is a lot more sexy because if you are beautiful and sexy, there is no need to show everything. Confidence is sexy; showing everything means you’re trying too hard.

  3. snapdragon says:

    ha! are you trying to seduce me, mrs. robinson?

  4. tiki says:

    i’m thinking her dress is a case of, if her boobs show themselves capable of behaving themselves behind the mesh, next time they’ll be allowed to roam free. i mean, who doesn’t appreciate free-range boobs?

  5. wee freckles says:

    She looks so cute, but how does anyone even notice pretty blue eyes with those boobies calling out “look at meeee!!”? And I’m a straight woman.

  6. Bodhi says:

    She is such a cutie. Its wild, she & LL were in Mean Girls together when LL was the talk of the town. Who’d have thought that MG would end up as the pinicle of LL’s career & the begining of Amanda’?

  7. Dorothy says:

    I like her ! She was in Mamma Mia and is in Big Love! She is great. The problem with this movie is that it is based on a crappy book! I usually like Nicolas Sparks books and I really tried to read this but i had to put it dowm. Bad Book=Bad movie!!

    Oh and it really is a bad dress!

  8. v says:

    I think she’s beautiful. The dress isn’t that bad, just a weird cut. If the dress didn’t push her chest down so much it’d look really nice even that low-cut.

  9. Chicken Tetrazzini says:

    It seems like everyone nowadays is always walking around with their various parts hanging out. I do think Amanda looks cute, and not slutty, but to stand out IMO, you have to cover yourself up like a Bedouin. An added bonus is that you won’t be the victim of slut-shaming! Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop hatred from other women, I cover myself up completely (even though I live in the Deep South and it’s usually hot as hell here), but I STILL get hate. LOL basically, if you’re a woman you can never win..which is why I just don’t play. The rules are completely different for celebs though…

    I like her, and I think she’s talented and will continue to have a good career. That movie looks like a stinker though, doesn’t it?
    I don’t like that dress. The mesh is a little too figure skater costume for me.

  11. L says:

    I think folks will see it just because it’s based on a Nicholas Sparks book. At least for the first weekend, he has a pretty solid fan following

  12. snowball says:

    The first time I saw the Dear John promo, I was wondering if Dakota Fanning was old enough to be playing this kind of role.

    It’s probably been around forever and I just haven’t been noticing, but does anyone else see a major increase in actresses winching up their boobies in low cut dresses? Every other woman has boobs threatening to spill out, even the ones with little ones.

  13. juiceinla says:

    Is it me or is she clenching her teeth in the picture where while her co-star leans in a little close?

    I hope she is a good actress- Mamma Mia was a disaster… I am reserving judgment.

  14. Obvious says:

    i think this dress is fab although the front could use some tweaking. that being said i adore amanda, though i still want to steal her boyfriend who is my major fantasy boyfriend.

  15. MM says:

    That dress would be just as cute – cuter, even – if not cut down to her navel. She’s gorgeous and doesn’t need to slut it up.

    (gnashes teeth)

  17. stinabelle says:

    I like her, but she was not good on Veronica Mars. She was a little wooden.

  18. Ron says:

    J Lo needs to be slapped for starting the cut to the navel trend. Every now and then I think it looks good but most of the time it’s just another look at me moment. And Jesus made the double sided tape so you don’t need the mesh panel to hold your chi chi’s in.

  19. your mom says:

    I can’t remember the source but… I read somewhere that she and the guy who played opposite her in Mamma Mia got into a relationship when he was still dating his high school sweetheart. Is this true or am I confusing her with someone else?

  20. Obvious says:

    @YOUR both say they felt a connection but didn’t starting dating till after the movie wrapped. obviously-like many hollywood romances-the timing is a bit sketchy but o well. i’d steal him from her in a heartbeat.

  21. orion70 says:

    She should have started by wearing a genuine smile (or not). Header pic is very obvious that isn’t reaching her eyes. Poor thing looks like her underwear are riding up or something.

  22. MiMi says:

    Big Love has launched her career to a new level. Strange how TV can help some actors succeed when their films cannot. Now she will have her pick of rolls.

  23. Dhavy says:

    She’s very pretty but I don’t understand why she would make a movie with Channing Tatun comsidering that he doesn’t know how to act but I guess he’s somewhat of an eye candy.

    I like the top of the dress not the bottom and the mesh holding the dress together is a no-no

  24. hatsumomo says:

    Arg! a new pet peeve; when some one doesn’t know the difference or misuses the word roll/role.

    Roll- what you eat with dinner or to roll a ball or roll on the floor laughing..

    Role- a part in a movie or stage production.
