Amanda Seyfried Used Intimate Scenes With Channing Tatum To Tease Boyfriend

In 2010, Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum co-starred in Dear John, a love story between a young soldier and a girl. Being a romance, Tatum and Seyfried were involved in many intimate scenes throughout the film. The Mean Girls star who was dating Marvel actor Dominic Cooper at the time, used these romantic scenes as a way of goading her boyfriend to get jealous. Speaking of the game and Cooper’s reaction to it, Seyfried said,

“He’d pretend to be jealous because I kind of liked it. That’s a normal reaction, right? I don’t get it when people aren’t. When he wouldn’t be jealous, I’d wonder how he felt about me.”

Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper Worked Together As Exes

Amanda Seyfried and ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper managed to be professional about their breakup by starring together in Mamma Mia! 2. Seyfried, who was already married to Thomas Sadoski by then, spoke of the minor complications that arose between her husband and her due to her collaboration with Cooper. Elaborating on the jealousy that Sadoski felt, the actor said,

“I think he has the same kind of issues that I would have if we were hanging out with his ex-girlfriend from long ago. I think it’s always like, ‘I’m so in love with this person, so that person must be so in love with her too’. I’d guess he assumed Dominic is in love with me the way he’s in love with me. And it’s just not the case.”

Seyfried went on to clarify that small jealousies aside, she only received unstinted support from Sadoski for her work in Mamma Mia! 2 while also stating that her husband and ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper were actually good friends.
