Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long were one of those couples that chose to be mostly low-key. But on some occasions, that two would drop pictures on Instagram of how much fun they were having. And apparently, Instagram was also the place where their love story started. While they already knew each other through friends before they got together, it was actually Long’s Instagram that sealed the deal. Seyfried thought the comedian’s posts were funny, which essentially led her to slide into his DMs.
“I followed him on Instagram,” Seyfried told Vogue in a June 2013 cover story, “and I thought something he said was really funny. It was a beautiful picture of a snail, and the caption said, ‘F*****g MOOOOOOOOVE.’ It made me laugh out loud, so I texted him.”
At the time, their relationship was still relatively new, but Seyfried shared why she thought they were good for each other. “I really do have my own identity, both inside and outside the relationship, if that makes any sense,” she explained. “It just feels right. It’s also really good to feel OK being alone.”
