Amanda Seyfried was born on December 3, 1985 in Allentown in eastern Pennsylvania. Her middle name is Michelle. The actress has an older sister, Jennifer, who also later chose a career in show business: she sings in the group “Love City,” which leans more toward the rock style. But Amanda’s parents have nothing to do with the stage: her mother Ann is a psychotherapist, and her father Jack worked as a pharmacist.
Amanda Seyfried as a child
At age 11, Seyfried made her debut as a model. The professional agency “Image” quickly signed a contract with her, and it also arranged for Amanda a number of photo shoots and an advertising agreement for several brands of clothing for children. Subsequently, the young model changed representatives twice, found herself on the cover of several romance novels by Francine Pascal, and put an end to her modeling career even before receiving her certificate. The reason was largely a change of priorities and the desire to realize oneself in the acting field.

In 2003, the future actress graduated from school and moved to New York, where she entered Fordham University.
Amanda Seyfried will give Thomas Sadoski a baby
A few days ago, blonde actress Amanda admitted that she was expecting a child. The happy father will be her current fiancé Thomas Sadoski...
For 30-year-old Amanda, this baby will be the first child. Note that the star of the musical Mama Mia! Recently, she has repeatedly repeated in interviews that she really wants to experience the joy of motherhood.
“For the last two years I’ve been thinking about motherhood day and night. I can already imagine a family life: the same as what I lead now, but with less work and stress,” she said in a recent interview.

By the way, the artist herself announced her pregnancy a few days ago. However, when exactly Amanda and Tom will become parents is still unknown.
Let us remember that the couple met last year. And already this spring they began to be noticed together - and it became clear that Amanda and Tom were in love with each other.
A couple of months ago they announced their engagement and announced that they were planning to get married. But it seems that first Sadoski and Seyfried will become mom and dad, and then they will hold all the other special events.
Let us remember that in social circles it was rumored that Amanda and Tom resigned their former partners for the sake of their relationship.

Thomas was married to Kimberly Hope for eight years, and Amanda was dating actor Justin Long for the second year.

But very soon Thomas filed for divorce from his wife, and Amanda announced her separation from Long.
The reasons for Sadoski's divorce were not disclosed, but with Amanda, at first glance, everything was clear. Long was in no hurry to ask her down the aisle, but she wanted a family. He often reproached his friend for spending a lot of time with her dog.
Nevertheless, Tom’s ex-wife did not start public scandals over her husband’s hypothetical infidelities.
In addition, Thomas has no children - who would blame a man for also dreaming of offspring? Apparently, it was on this issue that he and Amanda agreed.
Let us remember that Seyfried recently admitted that she suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder and spoke about the treatment of the disease...
“I take antidepressants and will never stop doing so. I have been taking this medicine since I was 19 years old, that is, for 11 years. I take a small dose and see no reason to stop treatment. I don’t know whether it’s a placebo or not, I still don’t want to risk it,” said the star.
This mental disorder manifests itself in obsessive states and thoughts, from which a person tries to get rid of the same obsessive actions.

Amanda does not have the most severe form of the disease, but the disease still requires constant treatment.
“The older I get, the less fear I have. Knowing that most of my fears have no basis in reality gives me great peace of mind,” she said.

Amanda's first role was Lucy from the TV series As the World Turns (1999). Having completed this work, Seyfried quickly received a new offer from the long-running soap opera All My Children: she appeared in three episodes in 2003.

Then there were short appearances in Law & Order. Special Victims Unit (2004) and CSI Crime Scene Investigation (2006). Between these events, Amanda managed to get a role in “Veronica Mars” (2004), where Kristen Bell shone in the foreground, and also made her big film debut in the comedy “Mean Girls” (2004) with Lindsay Lohan.

The year 2005 can be considered a turning point in the actress’s career: several films were released in which she was no longer in episodic or supporting roles. These include Rodrigo Garcia's Nine Lives and Alpha Dog with Justin Timberlake and Sharon Stone. For her role in the first, Amanda received an award at the international festival in Locarno, and the MTV Movie Awards in the same year recognized the cast of Mean Girls.

Since 2006, Seyfried has starred in the TV series Big Love for several seasons. This did not stop him from working on feature films and other TV projects. The most striking role of this period was the musical “Mamma MIA” (2008) based on ABBA songs. Amanda joins a stellar line-up of artists led by Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth.
From that moment on, pass-through projects practically disappeared from Amanda’s filmography, and the number of genres increased. The intense horror films Jennifer's Body (2009) and Chloe (2009) were followed by the romantic films Dear John (2010) and Letters to Juliet (2010).

Amanda returned to musicals in Les Miserables (2012), where the actress worked with such stars as Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman.

She did not refuse even small roles if the film itself seemed interesting. This happened with “A Million Ways to Lose Your Head” (2014) by Seth MacFarlane; later the director invited Seyfried to “Ted 2” (2015).
The adventure film Pan: Journey to Neverland, shot the same year, was received poorly by audiences and critics. Amanda even received a nomination for the Golden Raspberry, an anti-cinema award.

There were many stars among the guests of the gala evening, but all attention was focused on young parents Thomas Sadoski and Amanda Seyfried, who appeared in public for the first time after the birth of their daughter.
The couple looked great, but they seemed to have lost even more weight. Amanda was dressed in an elegant black outfit: a lace blouse and a dark skirt that fell below the knee. Thomas was wearing a fashionable dark blue suit that fit the man just perfectly.
Then on his page, Tom posted a photo from the charity party and the medal they received. It is clear that the man values this award.
Let us remind you that on March 25 it became known that Amanda Seyfried gave birth. Now she and her husband Thomas are the parents of a beautiful girl.

This news was also confirmed by a representative for the couple. However, no further details are provided to the press. Also, the newly made mother and father have not yet said what they named their child.
Let us remember that for the last six months Amanda has proudly shown her belly to the world. She didn’t show up at film parties and even missed the Oscars. But she and her Thomas could be seen on the streets. The actress also repeatedly admitted that she had long dreamed of becoming a mother.
And about 10 days ago it turned out by chance that the couple had secretly gotten married. Sadoski himself boasted about this. He appeared on one of the shows where he called Amanda his wife. The presenter was somewhat surprised and asked directly: were they really married? To which Thomas did not deny it, but honestly said that it was so. And at the same time he showed his wedding ring.
“We escaped. We just left the country with the priest. There were only two of us, we did what we wanted and that concerned only us. Amanda is the woman I love, admire and respect more than anyone in the whole world. Our ceremony was very beautiful. Everything was as planned,” said the happy man.
Recall that Seyfried recently admitted that she is not planning a lavish celebration. In addition, the girl said that she was not aroused by passion for a wedding dress: she had already played a bride in films many times, and that was enough for her.
But she added that she wants to get married. In the end, everything turned out the way she wanted. Amanda and Thomas got married, but they did it quietly and without fanfare.

The actress dedicated the summer of 2020 to the premieres of “Mamma Mia!” 2" (2018) in different countries, promoting the film at shows and presenting the sequel to the musical comedy-melodrama story at various events.
