Amanda Seyfried: why she split with Dominic Cooper

Tuesday March 8, 2011

Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried has opened up about her painful split with British actor Dominic Cooper.

The actress told Elle magazine their union ended when she discovered he was still involved with his ex girlfriend.

"I was just kind of foolishly thinking that the two of them were done and Dom and I were involved. But we weren't really as involved as I thought," she said.

"So I got my heart broken pretty hard. And then it took a long time for us to break up again."

The blonde beauty says she passed up the chance to date True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard to be with Dominic.

"We dated. He's super funny, but I was too involved with Dom," Seyfried admits.

Now Amanda is rumoured to have found love again with Ryan Phillippe, since meeting him at Kate Hudson's Halloween party last October.

Of the new romance she said only: "I've been 'seen' with him."
