Amanda Seyfried's new movie Lovelace premiered at Sundance Tuesday night, and it's safe to say it bears little resemblance to her performance as Cosette in Les MisĂ©rables. She took over the role of infamous '70s and '80s porn star Linda Lovelace from her Mean Girls costar and trainwreck Lindsay Lohan.
At a panel following the screening, Seyfried said that filming the scenes of Deep Throat and recreating Lovelace's abuse at the hands of her husband/manager (played by Peter Sarsgaard) were the most difficult. The nudity? A no-brainer.
"I don't know why I'm comfortable," she said. "Nudity: whatever! Sex: we all do it. There's a time and a place to be naked...she's a porn star!"
It would be pretty hard to play a porn star without nudity, so, props. "We needed to be naked a lot of points in the movie and it wasn't a big deal. It's like a costume."
