Amanda got loud applause from the audience as she made her way to her seat. She appeared quite surprised by the attention she got from the audience that when she sat down, she asked Stephen, "What do you pay them?" 

When Stephen asked, "What?" she simply said nothing. Amanda must have had many of her fans in the crowd to have gotten so much attention. 

A Witch Who Has Chickens

Besides being an actress, Amanda also owns an animal farm. The actress' picture was featured on the show. The photo captured the Dropout star standing in front of a farmhouse with different animals striking poses around her. 

According to the actress, she made all the animals pose for the photograph except for the photoshopped chickens. Stephen described the photo as one from a horror movie. He noted, "I have to say, this looks like a press photo for an A24 horror movie about a witch who has chickens."

During the show, Amanda also spoke about her tortoise that got missing. Stephen then jokingly said, "If you have seen a tortoise in the state of New York, contact Amanda Seyfried."

Amanda mentioned the tortoise's name, Franklin. When asked if Franklin responds to her name, Amanda affirmed that he does and demonstrated how she calls her tortoise. 

"I actually am not kidding, he does. And I'm always walking around now, like this, saying, 'Frankie, come here, Frank."

Amanda's latest appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert was fun and lively. It had everything: fashion, elegance, comedy, and animal love. The audience and viewers surely had a good time with her.
