Pretty in pastel, Amanda Seyfried works her adorable quirky-chic charm in a sky blue Chanel dress and silver bow-embellished Jimmy Choo pumps on the cover of InStyle.

Creamy porcelain complexion, shiny honey blonde strands and a bold red pout, the actress showcases her signature tomboy-ladylike blend for the magazine's January issue.

The 27-year-old star talks singing and being nude in front of the camera, dating in Hollywood and living a normal down-to-earth life amidst her A-list star status.

Seyfried's current true love is her dog Finn, “I got Finn from the set decorator on Big Love. I was just going to foster him for 24 hours but caved the next day. I love him so much.”

In terms of people love, Seyfried tells the mag she likes dating actors. “I’m just more attracted to actors. I like their choice to be artists—that’s ballsy. And a guy who has such access to his emotional life is sexy. Or maybe because lots of the actors I know are so broken. I don’t think I’m compatible with anybody I’ve dated. Maybe I’m so attracted to actors because I’m not ready for the “settled down” thing yet.” 

On doing nude scenes for Lovelace, Seyfried says, “It’s not about my body. It’s not about me. You’re playing somebody else. You’re not going to believe a love scene if the people are dressed. You’re not going to believe a stripper who has on a bra and underwear the whole time. At the same time, it has to do with how comfortable you are with letting people see your skin. For me, I’m ok with it. Yes, I have parts of my body that I don’t necessarily love. Like I have red bumps around my bikini line. But it doesn’t matter, at the end of the day.”

On singing in Les Miserables, Seyfried tells InStyle, “What’s most important to [Tom Hooper, director of Les Miserables] is an actor who can get it and who can be grounded enough to make it believable when she bursts into song.”
