Amanda Seyfried

Updated on September 10, 2014

Mean girl, dead friend and singing bride

I first saw Amanda in flashbacks as the dead friend, Lily Kane, on the first season of Veronica Mars. Since then, she's popped up in several other places that I noticed, like Mean Girls and House. Her big-eyed sex appeal often has her playing the sex kitten when she isn't playing the dumb blonde.All of which made her role as Sophie in the new movie Mamma Mia! such a refreshing change. We get to see warmth, intelligence and charm - traits that hadn't always been part of her characters before. Since then, she's played a wide range of roles and is definitely one of the best actresses of her generation.

Amanda Seyfried: What's New With Her?

Amanda's released a song with the same title as her current movie - Red Riding Hood - although unrelated. You can get it at iTunes.The series "Big Love" said goodbye with Amanda back for the finale. Did you see Amanda on the current cover of Elle?

Which Amanda Do You Prefer?

My first exposures to Amanda Seyfried were always in sex kitten roles and she certainly pulls those off with aplomb. But with the advent of Mamma Mia! and signing on for Dear John, she's definitely looking to not be type cast as such. Still, which type of role do you prefer her in?
