You know how your grandmother (or your most bitter lady friend, if you're in your mid-20s and entering the thick of wedding season) is forever muttering "always the bridesmaid, never the bride"?
Amanda Seyfried would like to flip a big ole bird to that one. Girlfriend is always the bride. Always. She plays the bridal half of the marital duo in this weekend's "The Big Wedding," but this white tulle dress-up thing isn't new for her — it's been going on for years. Get More »
Receiving an invitation to the Oscars is great. Receiving an invitation to the MTV Movie Awards is even better (that's right, even better). Receiving an invitation to both? Why, you've just hit your zenith as an actor. You've covered all bases. The old white people at the Academy think you're important, and the MTV generation thinks you're rad. Yes, rad.
But which of the two prestigious events did the following thespians enjoy more, by our perception?

Nicholas Sparks has a well-deserved reputation as the master of the romantic drama, thanks to films like "The Notebook" and new release "Safe Haven." Last year's movie "The Vow" has everything you would expect from a Nicholas Sparks film: hot actors (Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams), a wife in a coma, lingering amnesia and the joy of love rediscovered. Just one thing -- somehow, amazingly, Sparks didn't actually write it.
Yeah, we're surprised, too. So in honor of "The Vow," we hereby present our list of the Top Five Movies You'd Think Were Written by Nicholas Sparks. Get More »
We know Amanda Seyfried can carry a tune. But can she, you know, ride into the sunset?
The "Les Miserables" star will soon time-travel from the days of the French Revolution to that of the American West as she's saddling up to join Seth MacFarlane's western comedy, "A Million Ways to Die in the West," according to Heat Vision. Get More »
Sometimes, two ladies make out with each other in major motion pictures. Other times, they not only make out with each other — they simulate sexual intercourse with each other. AND because the Internet exists, each of those instances is easily accessible to everybody with a computer, context-free. I know, right? And some people claim to be "pessimists?" (laughs to himself.)

They say timing is everything. Lucky for Amanda Seyfried, that time is now.
After bursting onto the Hollywood scene in 2004 with "Mean Girls," Amanda has dazzled us with her romantic features in, well, romantic features. Needless to say, we're totally psyched to see her breaking hearts and hitting high notes in "Les Miserables."
And, yeah, we're also totally psyched for the excuse to celebrate her gorgeousness with a gallery. Enjoy!
Choosing between opening presents on Christmas Eve or opening them on Christmas morning may seem like a difficult call, but you haven't seen anything yet. Try deciding whether to have a one-night stand with Anne Hathaway or Amanda Seyfried.
Welcome to our "Les Misérables" edition of Eff, Marry, Kill.
This game goes exactly how you think it does. We want you to determine which actress — Hathaway, Seyfried or newcomer Samantha Barks — you'd like to spend the rest of your days with, whose days you'd like to end for good and which one you'd enjoy (or suffer through, as the case may be) spending one single night with.
Because such decisions are so difficult, we've asked a few of our buds to weigh in. Hit the poll below and hear thoughts from our experts underneath. And don't forget to give us your thoughts in the comments!

I can't imagine there's a single warm-blooded heterosexual male who saw "The Dark Knight Rises" and didn't fantasize about a one-night stand with Selina Kyle, so my answer in the Eff category should be pretty clear. Which leaves marriage or death for poor Samantha and Amanda … cruel fates for either one, to be sure. I suppose I would elope with Ms. Barks, since she's O.G. "Les Miz" and I assume that means she'd tolerate my late-night renditions of "Javert's Suicide." Sorry, Seyfried, but this is one confrontation you won't survive.

Marry: Samantha Barks

The lady I'd make sweet loving' to? Amanda Seyfried. I mean have you seen her work in "Chloe" and "Jennifer's Body"? She's a very sensual little minx! Now then, when you're talking wifey material, I'd take the amazing Anne Hathaway. She's massive amounts of talented, and she seems genuinely kind as well. Plus, she's had awful boyfriends in the past, so my efforts to spoil her wouldn't be taken for granted. Finally, I hate to be the one doling out death, but Samantha Barks would have to go. She seems like a great kid, but I don't think I could date a 22-year-old at this point in my life. Sadly, there's only room for one "barks" in my house, and that's when my dog Bugsy suspects an intruder.

Amanda Seyfried's never done much for me, and did make me regret existing for 108 minutes during "Mamma Mia!," so she's gotta go. Don't know much about Samantha Barks, except that I wouldn't kick her out of bed. And love love Anne Hathaway, even though I'm not digging on the pixie-style cut she's been rocking lately (has it really not grown back since those bastards shaved it?). But I'm confident we could make the type of compromises a marriage needs to work, especially if one of those compromises involves her Selina Kyle costume from "Dark Knight Rises."

Note to self: What happens in Tokyo, does not stay in Tokyo. Amanda Seyfried found that out during her appearance on "Ellen" yesterday afternoon. Thanks to some serious sleuthing, DeGeneres had discovered that Seyfried and her "Les Miserables" co-stars had gone out for a night of karaoke while they were in Japan for a press tour. "So what?" you ask. Big whoop.
Well, dear friends, Seyfried admitted that she not only took her turn at the mic after a few rounds of sake, but that she was dressed as a frog at the time. Yes, we said she dressed as a frog. Naturally the talk show host happened to have a giant frog head handy so the 27-year-old starlet could reenact this special moment for a national TV audience. Get More »
Proceed with caution, ladies and gents: The following video will make you wish it was your birthday.
"Les Miserables" star Amanda Seyfried celebrated her birthday in New York over the weekend, smack in the middle of the press tour for the film. Co-star Hugh Jackman, who plays her adoptive father in the movie, gave Seyfried a less-than-fatherly birthday surprise: A rendition of the "Happy Birthday" song (yes, sure, dads do that) followed by a smack on the lips and preceded by a lap dance (dads don't do that).
Perez Hilton obtained video of the scandalous celebration, embedded above.
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• John Cusack is a triple threat this week! In just the past few days he's scored roles in the legal drama "Due Process," the Stephen King adaptation "Cell" (Cusack's second King adventure, following "1408") and Roger Avary's "Duel"-type thriller, "Airspace."
• Hollywood loves it when a one-night stand leads to true love (and, often, a baby ... and not always in that order). Deadline reports that Amanda Seyfried and Patrick Dempsey will be playing unexpectedly expecting parents in "Wonderful Tonight," a romantic comedy that we hope gets a new title sooner rather than later (sorry, Mr. Clapton, but do you really need the extra money?).
