When the musical Mamma Mia! was released in 2008, the movie was pretty much an instant hit, charming audiences with a winsome ABBA soundtrack and an enthusiastic A-list cast. If you’re looking for behind-the-scenes facts about the movie’s wacky, colorful world, you’re in luck. Here’s the untold truth of Mamma Mia!
The first Mamma Mia! film centers around Sophie and Sky, a young couple preparing for their wedding. The lovebirds were played by Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper, and in an adorable turn of events, the two actors actually fell in love during the first movie!
Sadly, nothing good lasts forever, and the couple split up three years after the release of Mamma Mia! However, in the sequel film, the actors had to play a married couple – which meant they each had to tap into those old emotions.
Seyfried told Elle about how it was hard not to slip back into old habits, saying,
“You know, it’s very strange having to not be intimate with someone you’ve had an intimate relationship with. It can be hard but you have to step back and be professional.”
Luckily, the two were able to get past the potential awkwardness, as it had been ten years since Cooper and Seyfried had been together. Cooper explained in an interview with Attitude,
“It was a pleasant atmosphere. It was really interesting to see how different our lives are after 10 years. It is a long time and it was nice to spend time [with her].”
