Well, now we get to see her in action as her first Givenchy ad has been released, and it’s… eh, slightly underwhelming. Basically, Amanda walks mysteriously into a cafe in all black with a hat covering her face and waits for everyone to turn around and stare at her before taking the hat off to reveal a flowing mane of hair (seriously, props on the nice hair) and a white dress beneath her trench coat. That’s the essence of irresistibility, I suppose.
Has anyone smelled that fragrance? I’m a perfume freak so my interest is piqued, but Sephora seems so far away right now.

Amanda Seyfried might not have massive knockers anymore, but she has got a lifetime of fans quoting Mean Girls on their Twitter/tumblr pages, a pretty solid acting resumé and now, a campaign with Very Irresistible Givenchy. She’s especially stoked about that last part, and told WWD that in so many words, as well.
And that she is. Seyfried has just signed on as the face of Very Irresistible Givenchy, replacing Liv Tyler in the role. She is also the face of Clé de Peau Beauté. Seyfried is a longtime fan of the fashion house, wearing a purple spaghetti-strapped dress to the 2012 Tony Awards and attending the house’s fall ready-to-wear show in March. Her response when they offered her the deal? “F–k yeah,” she said bluntly. “It’s an honest collaboration. I’m proud to be a part of [the brands I’m involved with] because what they do is really cool, especially Givenchy — they’re so artistic. And I feel like I have a foot in the fashion industry now.”
She has just finished shooting the ad campaign — which includes both print and TV. TV was shot by Cédric Klapisch, and print by Glen Luchford; the campaign was styled by Riccardo Tisci. Print will begin running in October fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazines in the U.S.; the TV will bow at launch. Thierry Maman, global president of Parfums Givenchy, noted that the actress’ “style and elegance” and high profile made her a natural pick for the youthful Very Irresistible Givenchy. Nicholas Munafo, U.S. president for LVMH Fragrance Brands, concurs. “Amanda is a chic, sexy woman who is a perfect fit for Givenchy.”
I was trying to think of something funny or interesting to say about this, but I got nothing. She’s pretty and people are always getting paid for being pretty, so good for her, I guess?

Amanda Seyfried apparently used to have massive knockers (they can predict the weather!) before she lost some weight over the past few years, when they shrunk (as they do). She’s glad to be a bit slimmer, but she misses the ol’ bosom bags and felt the need to talk about it in the new issue of Allure because, you know, why not?
Seyfried tried on a lot of dresses at our shoot but ultimately fell in love with this floral one by Zac Posen. “It gave some shape up here—they’re assets,” she said of the resulting cleavage. She once referred to her breasts in an interview as “sacks of fat,” a description that she now reconsiders. “Actually, I saw a picture a couple of days ago from when I was 19, and my boobs were way bigger. They were a D, and now they’re a small C, because I lost weight,” she says. “There was something so beautiful about the size of them. When I look back, I’m like, Why did I always give myself such a hard time?”
“They do get in the way a lot. Like, I wear a really small, tight sports bra when I go running… because they want to smack my chin.”
Well… isn’t that special? As someone of a larger chest size, I can vouch for the fact that they are always in the way, but unlike Amanda, I don’t think I’d be lamenting that they were gone. To each her own, I suppose.
In any case, check out Amanda’s jugs on display in Allure below.

Maybe it’s the bug eyes or the bizarre choice of film roles, but Amanda Seyfried has always weirded me out a bit. Turns out, like attracts like because the actress herself is really into creeps and finds herself getting lady wood for creeps.
From The Sun (Via Yahoo!):
“Unfortunately there’s something attractive about someone who is broken, for me, and for a lot of women that I’ve spoken to. My best friend and I are attracted to creeps – sometimes,” she said in an interview with British newspaper The Sun. “They’re interesting and mysterious and they provide us with this rush and this need to chase or fix – just these needs they fill in yourself.
“It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a weird psychology but unfortunately it’s the way the world works.”
I used to have a crush on Steven Tyler when I was like, 11, so I kind of get where she’s coming from. And considering Amanda has said before that she’s really into actors, I can see why “someone who is broken” might cross her path fairly often. Personally, I got over my attraction to moody, artsy types once I exited my teenage years – nobody wants romance with someone who cries if the Starbucks barista gets your order wrong because you’re sure the world is out to get you. Time to get it together, buddy.

Note: Lovelace is the movie about Linda Lovelace starring Amanda Seyfried. There was another Linda Lovelace biopic that was supposed to happen – Inferno, starring Lindsay Lohan, if you can believe it – but nothing has happened with it. So, once again, we’re talking about the actual Linda Lovelace movie. Not the shady one with Lindsay. Got it?
Anyway, I definitely want to see this movie. I love Amanda Seyfried, and Linda Lovelace’s story is definitely interesting. But did I mention that I love Amanda Seyfried? And how I think she’s actually a good actor?
What about y’all guys?

I’m a fan of underwear only because it keeps me warm.
—What Amanda said in response to a TMZ cameraman’s question on what she thought about ‘Les Miserables’ co-star Anne Hathaway’s upskirt photo. Amanda more or less told us why she, herself, wears underwear, and why her reason might just be Anne‘s reason because duh, how uncomfortable to be asked about another woman’s vaginal habits. You wouldn’t make any sense, either.
