Having a great pair of legs is certainly nothing to hide.

Someone who knows this all too well is Mean Girls actress Amanda Seyfried.

The 26-year-old was spotted out and about in Malibu wearing a pair of some very short denim shorts.

Seyfried was also seen later on in the day taking a stroll on the beach with her current beau, Josh Hartnett as they walked his pet pooch Iggy.

The couple who are going through a bit of a rough patch didn't look very in love as the 33-year-old actor appeared to more interested in following his dog's trail.

And she looked down in the dumps as she lagged behind with her hands in coat pockets.

However, on Thursday Amanda was seen in picking up her dog, Finn, and Hartnett's best bud, Iggy from a grooming session at the Dog House in West Hollywood.

Which has to be a sign that the couple are working things out as the Pearl Harbor actor must trust her enough to leave his dog in her care.

The actress wore a grey and burgundy striped jumper, denim jeans and dusty workman boots with a pair of sunglasses.

Although it has recently been reported that she is on the verge of getting back with Dominic Cooper after she was seen being dropped off at a gym by her former co-star.

Seyfried shared a reunion lunch with Josh Hartnett last Saturday in Venice, California.

The two reportedly broke up at the start of the month while she was shooting scenes for the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables but it appears the 26-year-old couldn't seem to quit handsome Hartnett.

They were seen again the following morning grabbing an early breakfast in Los Feliz.

The In Time star looked like she had just tumbled out of bed, with her loose waves and jogging clothes.

She looked fit and toned in tight-fitting Lycra workout gear and brightly coloured trainers.
