“I’m terrified of being promiscuous. I don’t like the feeling you get when it’s not something that you truly want to do, and I hate the emotional abuse you give yourself afterward.”
Amanda has had two public relationships since being thrust into a media frenzy, one with her Mama Mia! costar Dominic Cooper and the other with Ryan Phillippe.
She added of her distaste for casual relationships, “It’s just uncomfortable when you’re with somebody and you’re like, ‘I don’t really know if I’m even comfortable with this. Why did I? Eww!’ I think dating can come without sex.”
Amanda continued, “Right now I’m happy to not have someone’s naked body around me. Except for my dog’s.” Since breaking up with Ryan, the actress has had a few low-profile flings, which she told Glamour were sorta hard.
“You learn very quickly what people are so enamored with, and it’s not necessarily me. … I think it’s all the bullshit of the idea of someone who’s famous, which seems more exotic than the fact. You have to be careful whom you date.”
So who does the actress have an eye on currently? Not her In Time costar Justin Timberlake, that’s for sure. “I think any female that meets him at first is like, ‘I want to date you.’ He seems so perfect, but you get to know him, and he’s a good pal. He’ll tell you what he really feels. But, you know, he’s really famous, which has its downsides.”
However, Amanda is looking to date … and have a few kids even. “I think about kids all the time. I feel like the next person I commit to, that’s going to be the guy who I’m going to have kids with.”
