Amanda Seyfried has got a very strange slang tattooed on her body, and the only question is, WHY?
Amanda revealed that she and best friends, Rachel McDowall and Ashley Lilley got the word 'minge' tattooed on their feet.
'Mamma Mia' star Amanda Seyfried has got a very strange slang tattooed on her body. The 32-year-old has been on the late night talk show rounds to promote 'Mamma Mia Here We Go Again' and in one of them explained something rather strange about her tattoo. On an appearance of 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' Amanda revealed that she and best friends, Rachel McDowall and Ashley Lilley got the word "minge" tattooed on their feet. Seyfried revealed, "It’s a term of endearment and in England it means vagina. But in the U.S., where I spend most of my time, it doesn’t mean anything. We commemorated our friendship with ‘minge’ tattoos."
She added that people in the UK were not impressed or amused by the tattoo: "They roll their eyes, it’s always a judgment." However, when it comes to her tattoo, Seyfried shared that she does not have any regrets. "It’s fine because it means so much more to me than vagina."
Amanda had actually come clean about her "minge" tattoo back in May 2010 when she spoke to Chelsea Handler on 'Chelsea Lately'. "I’ve never really been a fan of tattoos, but I wanted to see what it felt like," Amanda shared before adding that her friend Rachel "has a lot of them".
As it turns out, the word "minge" started with Colin Firth and Seyfried shared, "Anyway, Colin Firth used to say that word on the set and Rachel had to explain to me what it meant. So it’s on my foot. It’s to make me laugh, and every time I look at it, I do," Seyfried explained.
Amanda has been in the industry for more than two decades now and admitted that filming Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again was definitely one of the most rewarding experiences of her life. Both the first 'Mama Mia' and the sequel is the story of a relationship between a mother and a daughter and this time around, Seyfried connects to the story on a whole different level.
According to Elle, Seyfried shared, "When I filmed the first movie I was in my twenties, falling in love, and just really frivolous. Now I have a daughter of my own and I just relate to Donna (Meryl Streep) that much more". When it comes to the 'falling in love' part, Amanda was referring to her former flame and co-star Dominic Cooper. The actors went on to date for around three years after filming 'Mamma Mia'.
Currently at 32-years-old Amanda is married to actor Thomas Sadoski and has a one-year-old daughter with him. For the sequel, Seyfried and Cooper will reunite on-screen as lovers for the first time since their breakup. Seyfried had some advice to share with her fans when it comes to working with your ex.
"The number one, most important thing is setting boundaries. You can't call each other by the pet names you have for them. You know, it's very strange having to not be intimate with someone you've had an intimate relationship with. It can be hard but you have to step back and be professional," she revealed.
Dominic and I have such a good relationship that it was easy...but if you don't like your ex, just try to get them fired," Amada said jokingly. Cooper spoke to 'Attitude' magazine in an interview which was published in August 2018 where Cooper revealed that he is still close friends with Seyfried and that it was "nice to spend time" with her again.
"She's a friend. It was always going to be OK. You just have to be delicate with those situations. 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, but I know her family, I know her mum, who was there a lot," he continued.
"It was a pleasant atmosphere. 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]," he went on to add. Recently, Amanda revealed that she was breastfeeding on the set of her latest film 'Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again' and it was a huge challenge for her to do so. In an interview aired by 'The Project' where she admitted that she even overshared the details with her co-star Lily James.
"I remember the first time we had dinner, I was mainly just whining to you about breastfeeding," Amada joked to her co-star. "Because I was constantly pumping in Croatia. I think I was giving you too much information. I said you gotta see these things, they are super deflated. We talked about it the whole dinner. I can't stop talking about it," Amada shared.
