Celebrities and fans alike praised the actress' magazine cover debut.
Amanda Seyfried first graced a magazine cover in 2003, but it had nothing to with promoting an acting role.
On Monday, the actress took to Instagram to reveal her first-ever magazine cover shoot was one for Entertainment Weekly back in 2003. However, Seyfried wasn't the star highlighted on the cover -- Clay Aiken was.
The magazine's front page showed Seyfried alongside a group of screaming female fans, who were reflected in Aiken's aviator sunglasses. Aiken, who was fresh off of "American Idol" at the time, showed off a smile for the shot.
