Like Hayden Panettiere, Amanda Seyfried seemed destined to be an entertainer. Born in 1985 in Pennsylvania, Amanda began modeling at 11. And like most young actresses just starting out, Amanda found initial work in the soap business, in this case the now defunct “Guiding Light” and “All My Children.” It was “Mean Girls” in 2004 that broadened Amanda’s skills, and in the following year, “Nine Lives” and “Alpha Dog” followed.
In 2006, Amanda landed a role on the HBO drama, “Big Love,” and two years later, she was cast as Meryl Streep’s daughter in “Mamma Mia!” In 2009’s “Jennifer’s Body,” Amanda again proved adept at handling supporting lead roles, though she is the titular character in “Chloe.” Her filmography for upcoming projects indicates larger roles in big movies, and her singing abilities has definitely not gone unnoticed, but the coveted, breakout lead role has continued to elude her.

On her crushes:
“At 11, I had a crush on Leonardo DiCaprio. Actually, it was not a crush. It was an obsession! I was also obsessed with Richard Dean Anderson from “MacGyver” and “Indiana Jones.”
