The Summer of Breakups Is Now Invading the Fall and I’m Scared
Literally everyone in Hollywood is breaking up these days. Some are sad (Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck), some are totally unsurprising (sorry, Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting), and others are just totally unimaginable (Kermit and Miss Piggy — HOW?!) but all these splits are definitely making me believe something is in the water over there and I'm scared.
The latest couple on the love chopping block is Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long. These two were pretty low-key and generally flew under the radar, but they dated for two years which is basically an eternity in Hollywood. Page Six is reporting that Justin was ready to pop the question and Amanda wasn't ready for that commitment. Bummer.
Amanda gave some curious quotes about her relationship to Vogue back in May, saying: “I really do have my own identity, both inside and outside the relationship, if that makes any sense. It just feels right. It’s also really good to feel OK being alone.” She also added, “Justin likes being at home with his parents. And I like that about him. I was in Allentown (Pennsylvania, where she grew up) last weekend and didn’t want to come back.” Hmmm..
For his part, Justin told Kathie Lee and Hoda on TODAY last November that they were “in it for the long haul.” Sads.
