Amanda Seyfried says reuniting with real-life ex Dominic Cooper for Mamma Mia 2 made her husband jealous

They went out after falling in love on set during Mamma Mia, so yeah, bit awks for her hubby.

MAMMA MIA! HERE We Go Again is being released this Friday as the sequel and prequel to 2008′s wildly successful film Mamma Mia.

The film had an all-star cast of Amanda Seyfried, Dominic Cooper, Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth. And in a case of life imitating art, two of the main stars of the film, Amanda and Dominic met and fell in love on set in 2008 after playing a couple in love.


But unlike the movie, the couple didn’t make it down the aisle and split in 2011 after 3 years together.

This week, Amanda has revealed that her now-husband Tom Sadoski had some jealousy issues surrounding her and Dominic reprising the roles that made them fall in love. Speaking to the Mirror, Amanda divulged:

I think he [Tom] has the same kind of issues that I would have if we were hanging out with his ex-girlfriend from long ago. I think it’s always like, ‘I’m so in love with this person, so that person must be so in love with her too.

Yeah, and also a bit more is at stake when your ex is Dominic Cooper.

I assume everyone’s in love with Tommy because I’m in love with him. I assume that everybody sees him the way I do. I’d guess he assumed Dominic is in love with me the way he’s in love with me. And it’s just not the case.
That’s quite an endearing way of looking at the situation – sounds like Tom and Amanda are both still mad for each other, even after welcoming a daughter last year.

Amanda continued:

It’s sweet. I’d rather he be jealous than completely fine with it. He’s been great. He’s very supportive and he loves this movie, and [he and Dominic] got along absolutely fine when we were shooting.

Dominic went on to date Irish actress and Oscar-nominee Ruth Negga for 7 years, before splitting earlier this year.
