Amanda Seyfried on ‘dark’ Lovelace role

Exclusive: “It was a tough shoot but that’s what I was looking for…”

Inside issue 209 of Total Film magazine, we bring you the full story behind the success of ‘70s porn phenomenon Deep Throat, starring Linda Lovelace.

Amanda Seyfried stars in the title role of Lovelace, a new biopic that sheds light on the woman who went from infamous starlet to anti-porn campaigner.

We chat to Seyfried inside the issue (which is available for the hard-to-resist price of just £1.99 on your iPad), and here’s an excerpt of what of she had to say about a role that’s guaranteed to become a talking point…

Playing a porn star could be about the most controversial role an actress can take on…

“It was a tough shoot but that’s what I was looking for. I’ve played in several romantic movies but I’ve always been looking for darker roles, and the story of Linda Lovelace’s life is a very dark place to go.

“We couldn’t show half of what she went through, although our film is still a pretty harrowing experience. But it was still the most intense and most rewarding experience I’ve ever had on a film.”

Lovelace opens in the UK on 23 August 2013. For much more from Seyfried,pick up issue 209 of Total Film magazine, which is out now!
