As YourTango partners up with Dear John to bring you even more content about love, we thought it worth showering the film's two stars—Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried as, respectively, an enlisted soldier and a college student in love—with some much-deserved adulation. We've admired Amanda since her turn as Karen in 2004's Mean Girls. She's since shone on the small screen as the oldest child of the polygamous Henrickson family in HBO's Big Love, and she fought (and kissed) a zombified Megan Fox in Jennifer's Body. In addition to her acting resume, Seyfried's always struck us as one of Hollywood's more intelligent and grounded starlets.
And Channing, well, it should be obvious why we like this easy-on-the-eyes 29-year-old. If his all-American good looks weren't enough, he'd still have our hearts after his roles in 2008's Stop Loss, 2006's A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints, and as other lauded films.
