Amanda Seyfried Was Starstruck While Working With Cher On 'Mamma Mia!' Set: "She Is So Cool!"
It’s a return of Abba-mania with the release of a new movie, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. The film reunites original cast members, including Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Julie Walters, and many more.
And then, there’s one more person many are excited to see in the comedy – Cher. How was it like for the cast and crew to work with such an iconic singer?
Amanda Seyfried gladly reveals the answer
In the movie, Cher plays Amanda’s grandmother. And the 32-year-old’s reaction to this news was priceless. As she revealed on Late Night with Seth Meyers:
It’s a dream. I cried when I found out she was going to play my grandmother. And when she came on set, she was just so cool!
Even though Cher is 72 years old, Amanda says she’s still a young woman. In the beginning, the actors were intimidated by the presence of such a star. And surprisingly, Cher was intimidated by them as well:
We saw her fear and I think we could all relate to each other. It’s like we are all humans at the end of the day.
Clearly, Amanda is starstruck by Cher, as she couldn’t stop saying how cool the singer was. And the actress is not the only person with such an opinion. Countless fans from all over the world enjoy seeing the icon in the movie and use every opportunity to flood comment sections on social media platforms to shower her with love.

I just saw Mamma Mia 2. I smiled, I cried and I couldn't stop tapping my feet. When I got home I downloaded songs on Itunes. Lily James nailed it. Cher was killer. I can't wait to go back to see it again. LOVED IT!!! #MammaMia2 #universalstudios #ABBA # pic.twitter.com/nXRpcG81S2— Claire (@TopTweeterGirl) July 23, 2018
