Amanda Seyfried looks very different in childhood close-up you need to see

The Dropout star turned a lot of heads

Long before she was gracing red carpets in designer gowns, Amanda Seyfried was a regular kid just like anyone else - and it turns out she could pull some pretty epic faces.  

The star left her social media followers in disbelief with a snapshot from her childhood and we didn't recognize her.

Amanda shared the fun throwback of herself 

They live on an expansive farm in the Catskills area of New York – full of chickens, horses, and goats galore.

Amanda and Thomas married in 2017, and had a small and very private wedding while the Mamma Mia actress was nine months pregnant with their first child.

Amanda has become a Hollywood A-lister 

Amanda is flying high with her career currently and has astounded fans with her jaw-dropping performance as Elizabeth Holmes in Hulu's The Dropout mini series.

She recently opened up about the challenge of playing the disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes in an interview with Entertainment Weekly

Amanda made the shocking revelation that she didn't meet the Silicon Valley con, and in a way she was glad it worked out that way.

"I don't think I would've been able to play her with the kind of abandon that I was able to cultivate in my process of researching and stuff… I would've felt like I'd owed her more than I did, and I know that about me."

She even said she was relieved by the way it turned out, saying: "At the end of the day, I'm glad I didn't have the opportunity because it would've been a hard decision to make and I'm glad it was made for me."
