Early life

On December 3, 1985, Amanda Michelle Seyfried was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Her father, Jack Seyfried, is a pharmacist, and her mother, Ann Seyfried (née Sander), is an occupational therapist. Her background is primarily German, with minor percentages of English, Scots-Irish, and Welsh. Jennifer Seyfried, her elder sister, plays guitar in the Philadelphia rock group Love City.

Seyfried graduated in 2003 from William Allen High School in Allentown. She then began classes at Fordham University in New York City in the fall of 2003, although she later decided against going there after being offered a part in the Mean Girls movie in 2004.


1996–2005: earliest work

Seyfried started modeling while she was a student at William Allen High School in Allentown, Pennsylvania. She was featured on three covers of the Sweet Valley High book series and appeared in various print advertisements for apparel retailers, including Limited Too with Leighton Meester. She stopped modeling when she was 17 and began working as a waiter in a retirement community. She studied opera, took vocal lessons, worked with a Broadway coach while still a youngster, and started her her career as an extra in the daytime program Guiding Light. She portrayed the recurrent Lucy Montgomery on the CBS serial opera As the World Turns from 2000 to 2001, as well as Joni Stafford on the ABC soap All My Children from 2002 to 2003.

Regina George was supposed to be played by Seyfried in Mean Girls in 2003, but Rachel McAdams ultimately won the part. The decision was made by the movie's producers to cast Seyfried as Karen Smith, Regina's dim-witted "plastic" friend and sidekick, even though she was originally considered for the major part of Cady Heron, which was ultimately played by Lindsay Lohan. Over $130 million was made by the movie throughout its theatrical run, making it a box office hit. Along with Lohan, Lacey Chabert, and McAdams, Seyfried received an MTV Movie Award for "Best On-Screen Team" for her work in the movie.

Then Seyfried tried out for the role of Veronica Mars on the UPN television program. In the end, Kristen Bell was cast in the part, and Amanda Seyfried played Lilly Kane, Veronica's deceased best friend. Only flashbacks were used to depict her character. She starred as Samantha, the main character in one of the nine segments of the 2005 film Nine Lives, a collection of nine short films with various topics and an ensemble cast, in a role created by director Rodrigo Garca especially for her. Seyfried and the other female stars in the movie shared the Best Actress prize at the Locarno International Film Festival for their work. She acted as Mouse, a supporting role, in the independent film American Gun that same year. She played Rebecca in five episodes of Wildfire in 2006, and she also played Chrissy, the main character, in Andrea Janakas's short film Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves. She also made a little contribution to Alpha Dog as Julie Beckley. She appeared on numerous television shows as a guest star from 2004 to 2006, including House, Justice, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, American Dad!, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

2006–2010: Innovation

Big Love, an HBO drama television series about a fictional fundamentalist Mormon family in which Seyfried plays Sarah Henrickson, Bill and Barb's first daughter who battles with her family's polygamous faith, significantly raised Seyfried's career as an actress. The American premiere of Big Love took place on March 12, 2006. HBO announced in December 2009 that Seyfried would return for the fourth season of the show, but that it would be her final appearance since she wanted to start focusing on her acting career and other impending projects.

After Big Love, Seyfried appeared as Zoe in the 2008 horror drama Solstice and acted alongside Meryl Streep in the romantic comedy Mamma Mia!, which was a film adaptation of the 1999 musical of the same name. The fifth-highest-grossing movie of 2008 and the 159th-highest-grossing movie of all time, as of February 2021, was Mamma Mia!, which featured Seyfried in her debut leading role. The soundtrack for the movie Mamma Mia! featured five songs from her musical performance. Seyfried recorded a music video for the song "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)" as part of the marketing for the movie and its soundtrack.

In the comedy-horror movie Jennifer's Body, Seyfried played Anita "Needy" Lesnicki, the title character's best friend. On September 18, 2009, the movie was released in theaters after having its world premiere at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. She was chosen for the independent comedy-drama film Boogie Woogie that same year. In the ensemble film, she portrayed Paige Oppenheimer, one of the main characters. The film had its world premiere on June 26, 2009, at the Edinburgh International Film Festival before being released in theaters on April 25, 2010. Seyfried performed and gave a speech during the 81st Academy Awards ceremony on February 22, 2009. Seyfried was first cast as Baby Doll in Sucker Punch by director Zack Snyder in early March 2009, however she was forced to leave the project owing to scheduling issues with Big Love.

In Dear John, the movie adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' book of the same name, Seyfried co-starred with Channing Tatum. The movie, which debuted on February 5, 2010, garnered mostly unfavorable reviews. One of the Dear John soundtracks included "Little House," a song that Seyfried penned and recorded. Seyfried gives the role and her relationship everything she has, but she can't carry out all the grunt work, according to Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter. Since the relationship is extremely one-sided, you can't really blame her for choosing another path for her life. Despite the unfavorable reviews, Dear John broke Avatar's box office dominance as the number one movie in the United States, earning $80 million domestically and $115 million internationally.

The sensual thriller Chloe, which was released by Sony Pictures Classics on March 26, 2010, featured Seyfried as its lead. In September 2009, Chloe had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. In the movie, Seyfried's role is an escort hired to verify a husband's loyalty after his wife decides that she cannot trust him to be faithful. Chloe was a commercial triumph and turned into Atom Egoyan's most successful movie. Seyfried's portrayal in the movie earned positive reviews from critics, which helped her win praise from the industry and open up more opportunities to play a variety of parts.

Later in 2010, Seyfried starred in Letters to Juliet, a romantic comedy adapted on a book by Lise and Ceil Friedman. Despite receiving mediocre reviews upon its premiere, Letters to Juliet was a box office hit, earning $80 million globally. Seyfried received the title of "Showest Breakthrough Female Star of The Year" for her performance. She was nominated for Best Female Performance at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards for her role in Dear John and received the "Scared-As-S**T" award for her work in Jennifer's Body. Additionally in 2010, Seyfried was named one of Forbes' "17 Stars To Watch" and was nominated for three Teen Choice Awards, including Choice Movie Actress Drama and Choice Movie Chemistry with Channing Tatum for their work in the film Dear John. Letters to Juliet earned Seyfried a nomination for Choice Movie Actress Romantic Comedy.

2011–present: Additional film roles

Seyfried was scheduled to appear in the Oscar Wilde comedy A Woman of No Importance adaption by Myriad Pictures at the end of January 2009.

The lead character of Valerie in Catherine Hardwicke's Red Riding Hood was the second part that Seyfried played.
