Amanda Seyfried has established herself as one of Hollywood’s most captivating young leading actresses. She will next be seen on the big screen starring with Shirley MacLaine in Mark Pellington’s The Last Word and by television audiences in the much-anticipated revival of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.
In 2015, Seyfried starred in Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2 opposite Mark Walhberg as well as Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young opposite Adam Driver, Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts. Also that year, she received critical praise for her starring role in The Way We Get By. Additional film credits include A Million Ways to Die in the West, Les Miserables, Dear John and Mamma Mia. She is Givenchy’s Very Irrésistible ambassador and the global spokesperson for the luxuries skincare and makeup brand, Clé de Peau Beauté.
Seyfried is an avid supporter of the nonprofit organizations I Am That Girl and Best Friends Animal Society, recently signing on as national spokesperson for the latter’s Strut Your Mutt Initiative, with her own adopted “mutt” Finn at her side as spokesdog. “There are 9,000 dogs and cats killed every day in America’s shelters due to not having a home,” she says, “and Best Friends is working around the country with
local rescue groups and shelters to bring that number down to zero.”
