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 Misérables. 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."
