Amanda Seyfried plays Linda Lovelace in the new film ‘Lovelace’, which is currently screening at the Sundance Film festival. Amanda is at Sundance promoting the movie, and she gave a new interview to MTV about her apprehension in shooting some of the more ‘risque’ scenes.
She says, “It wasn’t that hard [deciding to do the movie]. I felt like this is a pretty fascinating story and this woman is a fascinating character, and we only really know her one way, and of course I’d like to show the world the other aspects of her life that, you know, almost seem unbelievable. I think, the trepidation came with playing somebody that actually existed, but the content, the porn aspect and the violence and all that stuff, didn’t scare me at all. I wanted to jump right into all that kind of stuff because I think it’s good work.”
She adds, “I just hope that nobody grabs onto the fact that there are a lot of b**bs and stuff. I don’t want that. I didn’t notice them at all. I didn’t because there was much else going on. And you know what’s funny? My friends all had incredible things to say just after the movie, and my sister’s like ‘There’s just so many b**bs’.” She continues, acknowledging that it’s definitely a component of the movie, but that people shouldn’t focus on that. She finally adds, “You know, it’s naturally done and it’s very tastefully done, you don’t get that in a lot of movies.”
‘Lovelace’ is currently screening at Sundance and also co-stars Juno Temple, James Franco, and Peter Sarsgaard.
