She has successfully avoided being typecast.
In an interview last fall, Amanda said that she turned down many of the "dumb blond" roles that were offered to her after her turn as an airhead in Mean Girls. Judging by her varied movie roles she's since embodied, it seems she's been making wise choices. Aside from her role as the romantic Sophie in Mamma Mia!, she's played the aforementioned polygamist's daughter in Big Love, a dead girl in Veronica Mars and a nerd in Jennifer's Body. After her turn as Savannah in Dear John, you'll see her as a seductress in Chloe, alongside Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson, and in the romantic comedy Letters to Juliet with Vanessa Redgrave and Gael Garcia Bernal.
