Mamma Mia! Star Amanda Seyfried’s Dated in the Past
July 21, 2018
We’re seriously Ob-SESSED with
. The actress has beauty, brains and a voice so delicate it could sing even the most upset baby in the world to sleep. But, of course, we’re not the only ones who thinks the blonde beauty is the bee’s knees. It turns out, a lot of lads have Amanda Seyfried sought after the 32-year-old throughout her career in Hollywood.
Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again in theaters, we thought what better time to look back on all of her current and past loves. She got to work with her ex, Dominic Cooper, in the Mamma Mia sequel, but fortunately he said it wasn’t too awkward. Her husband Thomas Sadoski, however, wasn’t too thrilled with the pairing and was actually JEALOUS of the work relationship. We get it!
So, who won Amanda’s heart in the past? Keep scrolling!

First on Amanda's dating timeline is actor
Micah Alberti, and in the past, she even referred to him as her first serious boyfriend. Sounds about right considering the two dated for a grand total of four years. WOW!
So, how did they meet? They first linked up on the set of
All My Children back in 2002, and since the relaysh lasted so long, it's safe to say sparks were flying on set. Ultimately, the pair split in 2006, and if we had to guess, we'd say they probably just had some growing up to do.

Amanda met her next boyfriend under similar circumstances. After working with actor
Emile Hirsch on the set of their film Alpha Dog, they decided to give a relationship a shot.
Unfortunately, the celebs quickly learned they were not compatible. Both of them have since gotten married to other people and have children of their own, so it ultimately worked out for everyone.

Amanda's next relationship lasted a bit longer. This time, she dated actor and musician
Jesse Marchant and, TBH, it seems like they were definitely ~in love~.
After two happy years together, Amanda and Jesse went separate ways, and according to reports, the split happened when she met
Dominic Cooper on the set of Mamma Mia! Still, she had nothing bad to say about her, and they even worked together on a movie after their split!
"He was so special and being with him had such a profound effect on me, but the timing wasn’t right," she said after they went their separate ways. Sadly, it happens!

As we mentioned earlier, Amanda began dating her
Mamma Mia! co-star after working together on the first movie, and fans of the flick were thrilled that their on-screen dreams were coming to life. Although the relationship lasted for more than three years, they decided to break up in 2010, much to fans' sadness.
Now that several years have passed, Dom had only kind things to say about getting to work with the blonde again for the
Mamma Mia! sequel. He told Attitude, "She's married now and has a beautiful child. We knew we were going to be working together [again] on a set, going back to a part which was certainly going to remind us of 10 years earlier... It was really interesting to see how different our lives are after 10 years. It is a long time and it was nice to spend time [with her]." So sweet!

If it wasn't for her on-again, off again relationship with Dominic Cooper, Amanda and
Alexander Skarsgård could've been something great. The blonde beauty admitted she and the Big Little Lies star dated in the past, but it was never able to go anywhere because she was still hung up on her ex. Their romance reportedly happened in 2008, but she didn't admit it until 2011.
"We dated. He's superfunny, but I was too involved with Dom," she told
ELLE magazine about her relationship with the True Blood alum.
Hey, at least she's honest and didn't lead him on!

In that same 2011 interview with
ELLE magazine, the 32-year-old confirmed that she was dating actor Ryan Phillippe at the time. She coyly admitted, "Um, yeah. I’ve been 'seen' with him."
The couple dated off and on for about seven months, with their final split coming in June 2011. A source told
US Weekly at the time, "It was mutual. They were never fully committed."
Amanda eventually opened up about the breakup herself, admitting that the high-profile nature of the relationship played a factor in its demise.
"When I was with Ryan, people followed me so much more, and that's probably one of the reasons that I'm not looking to date someone who's famous now," she told

After she and Ryan ended things, Amanda found herself a new bae, and interestingly enough, this guy was
not an actor. That's right! Andrew Joblon is actually an NYC real estate executive, and although their relationship wasn't one of her longer ones, it seemed that things got hot and heavy between the pair pretty quickly.
Amanda and Andrew were spotted at many star-studded events together while they were dating and, according to an
Us Weekly insider, "They were very close." Unfortunately, the couple amicably split in January 2012.

Dating rumors between these two started shortly after Amanda starred alongside
James Franco in the 2013 movie Lovelace. The celebs played love interests on screen, and after photographers spotted the 40-year-old leaving the blonde's house in June 2012 after filming wrapped, the romance rumors really picked up. A source close to JF told New York Daily News that the actor was "pursuing" Amanda, but the relationship was "not serious." Neither celebrity ever confirmed or denied the speculation, so your guess is as good as ours about what actually happened between 'em.

Although their relationship was brief, Amanda briefly dated actor
Josh Hartnett in 2012. Turns out, the two were far from soulmates and he may even regret having dated the blonde in the first place!
In a 2015 interview with
Playboy, the 39-year-old spoke about his experience dating the 32-year-old, as well as other famous actresses including Scarlett Johanssen and Kirsten Dunst. He said, "I've met very important people in my life doing films. Sometimes that had consequences that were just awful for everybody involved. Some were fantastic all the way through. Everybody makes mistakes dating people they work with." OUCH!

The speculation about James and Amanda’s relationship ended in August 2012 after she was spotted holding hands with
Dexter actor Desmond Harrington. The actors reportedly got together in July of the same year, but kept their relationship on the DL for the first few weeks. A source told Us Weekly that AS and DH were set up by his co-star, Jennifer Carpenter, who was spotted hiking with the blonde in early just weeks prior.
Although Mandy and Des were constantly spotted out and about for almost a year, they decided to call it quits in April 2013. While she was still in the relationship, however, she revealed some pretty ~interesting~ information about her past lovers.
"Everybody I've dated I've been sexually attracted to immediately," she told
ELLE magazine. "Sparks don't grow — your vagina doesn't become more inclined to wanting someone just because you're around them."
Good to know!

One of Amanda's most high-profile relationships began in 2013 when she dated
Justin Long, and TBH, we really shipped it. After being together for more than two years, the couple decided to move on from one another in 2015, however.
Considering JL appeared on the
Today show a year before their split claiming they were "in it for the long haul," their split came as a huge surprise. And, according to Us Weekly, he was "really heartbroken" over it. The mag also said that the two simply "grew apart." Honestly, this one still stings a bit.

Amanda finally found forever love when she met now-husband
Thomas Sadoski while starring in the off-Broadway play The Way We Get By in several years ago. The two became close, but Thomas was married to casting director Kimberly Hope at the time, and the Mamma Mia! star was in a relationship.
"[He] never flirted, never disrespected his wife," she later told
Porter magazine about the beginning stages of their relaysh. "That was another reason why I thought, later on, that I could marry him."
After he got divorced and Amanda ended her romance, the actors came back together to film
The Last Word and were finally able to express their love freely, which she says "felt healthy and freeing and clean."
Eventually, it was revealed that the 32-year-old got pregnant with Thomas’ baby while filming that movie and the couple welcomed a baby girl in March 2017. But that wasn't the only surprise! Shortly before their daughter arrived, Thomas admitted that they had also gotten secretly married.
"We eloped. We just took off into the country with an officiant and, just the two of us, and we did our thing," he revealed on
The Late Late Show with James Corden.
WHEW! Talk about a whirlwind love story.
