LONDON: Amanda Seyfried keeps all the romantic notes her former boyfriends used to send her because she thinks it is lucky.

Amanda Seyfried keeps her old love letters for "good luck".

The 'Dear John' actress - who is currently dating her 'Mamma Mia!' co-star Dominic Cooper - used to exchange notes with a former boyfriend and says she still holds on to them as they help to inspire her.

Amanda - whose character Savannah Curtis in 'Dear John' stays in touch with her soldier boyfriend by post - said: "The last time I wrote a letter was at Christmas, in my childhood bedroom, as a response to a letter I had received. And it was the most beautiful letter I had ever written.

"But me and my previous boyfriend used to write each other love notes from time to time even though we lived close by and it was nice. I keep them for good luck and something to inspire me."

Amanda - who co-stars with Channing Tatum in the film - shot the movie in Charleston, South Carolina, and she is now keen to buy a property there and renovate it.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I loved being in Charleston - it's so beautiful and the people are amazing. I want to buy a house there and there's actually a property I've seen, which I want to buy and fix up. It's a dream life down there."
