'It's Israeli fight training. I work with this girl named Avatel and I've only had four sessions. But go ahead, choke me. Do it,' Amanda dared Jimmy.
After lunging at the blonde bombshell, Seyfried used both arms to subdue to late night host into submission.
'You almost broke my wrist. Oh, that hurt me there,' Fallon stuttered.

Amanda, realizing she slightly injured Jimmy, turned apologetic.
She said, 'Sorry, my technique is off. Oh I'm so sorry and you've got the baby.'
The Big Love actress donned a brunette curly wig to play the title role in the biopic about porn star Linda Lovelace.
Seyfried recently revealed that she had fun simulating oral sex on her co-star Peter Sarsgaard, who plays her husband-turned pimp Chuck.

'Because they are ridiculous at the end of the day. So fun! I mean, I had a popsicle. That was my idea. It was melting all over him.'
To prepare, Amanda read Linda's books, studied her New York accent, and met with Linda's children and lawyer.
However, she did not sit through the 1972 XXX film that turned Linda into a household name - Deep Throat.
There's no point in watching the whole movie,' she said in the August issue of GQ. 'It's the same s**t for an hour and a half. If you've seen a clip of it, you've seen the movie.'
Lovelace - which spans her life between 20 and 32 - was helmed by two-time Oscar winner Rob Epstein and Oscar winner Jeffrey Friedman.
Sharon Stone, Peter Sarsgaard, Chris Noth, Bobby Cannavale, Hank Azaria, and James Franco also appear in the biopic.
The first time the Mamma Mia star ever saw a porno movie was at the tender age of six.
it was the first time I'd ever seen a penis, and I remember it being very graphic, and I remember when he came: it was so terrifying,' Amanda recalled of the cop-themed flick.
'It was funny. But it was also like, so, so, so wrong.'
Up next for Amanda is Seth MacFarlane's western-comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West - due out May 30 - with Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, and Neil Patrick Harris
