Amanda Seyfried Talks About Her Long-Distance Relationship With Dominic Cooper

Amanda Seyfried Talks Long-Distance Love

Last we heard from Amanda Seyfried, she seemed a little sad despite her starlet status. But success isn't all bad: it certainly makes long-distance relationships easier when you can afford to hop a plane to London if you're lonely.

Still, even Seyfried admits "there's nothing easy" about a long-distance relationship, even for the rich and famous. In the latest issue of InStyle Hair, the Letters to Juliet star talks about her ocean-separated romance with Dominic Cooper, her boyfriend of three years. Judging by this cute photo from her recent premiere, things seem to be going well.

Seyfried says she and Cooper use Skype to stay close: "It's boring, but it's true." Sometimes, they'll even video chat while going about their household chores.

"The other day, I was cleaning, he was cleaning," she recalls. "We couldn't see each other — we were just scrubbing away and talking like we were in the same room."

As someone who likes to be kept company while housecleaning, this makes total sense to me. Aww, stars really are just like us — though Amanda probably has more enviable hair.

Have you ever used Skype to shorten the distance of a long-distance relationship?

My last boyfriend lived 800 miles away, and we used iChat all the time. It was nice at the time, but now I look back and realize that I made more effort to visit him than he did to visit me. Which is neither here nor there, but I feel like the iChat almost made me overlook that because we were "seeing" each other so much. It's just that it didn't take any effort to do that, and when it DID take effort, he wasn't as inclined to do much. I mean, this is a guy who dumped me because he said he couldn't afford to fly to see me as much as he wanted to... and a month later, he booked a trip to Europe with another woman. I know, I know, I'm bitter. Won't always be. :)

i'm usually not a fan of her, but she looks cute in this picture, and i find that quote about the cleaning very adorable. long distance is hard. i have done the video chat thing a little but i'm not a big fan of it. luckily the longest i'm apart from my boyfriend now is 4 days so we just talk on the phone.

I've been using skype lately to keep romance alive with a guy I use to date. He lives in Paris, so we have a time change on top of the distance.. but it works

Somehow I manage to get myself into long distance relationships often, my last bf lived in London and this one is in CO (although my current bf is the most serious). We both rely on Skype to stay connected, even if its on while we sleep. Its definitely a relationship saver!
