Actress Amanda Seyfried is teaming up with her gay roommate to open an antiques store in New York City, so she has something to fall back on if the acting roles dry up.

Amanda Seyfried's singing in Les Miserables was sometimes so bad her co-stars feared she was having a stroke.

The cast all wore special earpieces to help them sing in time and on key but the forgetful actress would often leave hers somewhere on set and try to sing a capella, according to the New York Daily News.

Her co-star, British actor Eddie Redmayne, confesses that during one duet, her singing was terrible but he was too embarrassed to tell her.

He says, "I was doing a romantic duet with Amanda (Seyfried) and she was singing off-tune and slightly off-tempo, and I kept thinking, 'T...
