Amanda Seyfried's boyfriend, real estate broker Justin Huchel, has just kicked her to the curb. She says she'll probably remain single for a while. But why? There's a guy out there for whom she'd be just perfect. A man for whom the 26-year-old Seyfried seems almost tailor-made. At 24, he rich (presumably), famous, handsome (sort of), and a professional athlete. And he even has a catchy, alliterative name. Tim Tebow.
So why would Tebow and Seyfried make such a great couple. Tim's a virgin, and while Amanda Seyfried may or may not be verifiably medically intact, she's undeniably a virgin at heart. When she was recently asked by an unbelievably rude interviewer if she was "going through a 20s sl** phase, Amanda, who will play the late porn icon Linda Lovelace in the upcoming biopic, Lovelace, replied:
"No! 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. 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. I think that's a really fun way to do it. Right now I'm happy to not have someone's naked body around me. Except for my dog's."
Amanda also admits that she thinks about having kids "all the time." And it certainly seems like a no brainer that Tim Tebow will be a family guy at some point in the future. Looks like some sex-free dating culminating in matrimony is practically written in the stars for these 2.
Best of luck and lots of happiness, you crazy, virginal kids. And just remember where you got the idea.
Note: As for the interviewer who asked Amanda Seyfried if she was going through a sl** phase, it is sad that of all the ugly hate slurs which unfortunately abound in our culture only slurs against heterosexual women can be used with impunity. In fact, they're used regularly and often with profligate glee. Imagine what would have happened to a "journalist" who so blithely used a homophobic, racial, or religious slur. Isn't it about time you called off your old tired ethics, people? It's 2012, not 1952.
