Amanda Seyfried’s Husband Wasn’t Thrilled She Was Working With Ex Dominic Cooper
When Amanda Seyfried reprised her role in Mamma Mia! 2, one person wasn’t singing any ABBA tunes.
In Mamma Mia! 2, Amanda Seyfried reunites with her ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper playing a now married couple in the sequel. The two dated for three years after meeting on the set of Mamma Mia!. The reunion didn’t sit well with the actress’ spouse.
The actress is now married to Tony Award-nominated actor Thomas Sadoski and share one child together. When she signed on for the sequel, her husband of one year wasn’t exactly “Head Over Heels” over his lady kissing her ex. Who can blame him!
While promoting the ABBA-inspired film, which also stars Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Cher, Seyfried revealed her husband was jealous of his wife playing house with another man, even if it’s only pretend.
“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, it’s sweet. I’d rather he be jealous than completely fine with it.”
Mamma Mia! 2 performed well at the box office opening weekend, so a third movie may be in the works. There’s one person who may not be excited for that news.
