I’ll take ‘Odd New Celebrity Couples’ for $400, Alex.
She plays an iconic star whose throat was anything but shallow, and he’s the floppy-haired gangler who dated Drew Barrymore. Together, will he be just that into her? Or will they make each other les miserables?
Do you have a guess, viewers at home? If you answered, “Who are Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long?”, then congratulations — you’ve won an all-expenses paid trip to whatever Greek island Mamma Mia was filmed on! Please approach either Amanda or Justin to claim your prize.
But yeah! Is your mind blown? According to Us Weekly, these two are absolutely almost definitely dating, which is super exciting! Actually, the way their source phrases it is especially enjoyable, so I’m gonna just reproduce the quote in its entirety for you:
“Justin is super private about his relationships, [so] I’m not positive how they exactly met, but they’ve known each other for awhile, when they were seeing other people. They recently started hanging out more, going on date-like activities. They’re both busy … but they’re seeing where it goes.”
Ugh, you guys. I love this. It’s so hilariously vague, even for an ‘inside source’. “Listen…I’m not sure exaaaactly how they met, or if they even know each other, but they have certainly hung out before, and completed activities that could technically be construed as dates, as long as we’re not sticking to the strictest sense of the word. I wish I had more details for you, but I’ll just leave you with the phrase ‘they’re seeing where it goes’, because that’s open-ended enough that it applies to literally every possible option.”
Another source says the two of them have a ‘similar sense of humor’, and apparently they showed up together for a Lovelace event on July 30th and were ‘inseparable’.
“Justin came alone and stayed close to Amanda all night. They weren’t making out or anything like that, but they were just inseparable during the event. He hung out when she talked with others.”
Okay so yeah, they certainly didn’t kiss or anything tell-tale like that, but they stood quietly next to each other while they interacted with other people and it was a romance for the ages. I’ve never seen anything quite as electric, and if anything proves they’re totes a couple, it’s this steamy tweet from Justin where he boldly declares his love and does everything but propose marriage to Amanda:
— Justin Long (@justinlong) August 10, 2013
Previously Justin, 35, dated the aforementioned Drew Barrymore off-and-on between 2007 and 2010 and was rumored to be seeing Kate Mara last summer, while Amanda, 27, was with an actor from Dexter by the name of Desmond Harrington until a while ago, and dated Dominic Cooper for over three years before breaking up in 2010. She has said about the actor, “He’ll always be in my life regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think. I’m never going to be with a guy that can’t deal with my friendship with him.” So, like, I hope you’re cool with that, Justin.
