Amanda Seyfried will be playing porn star Linda Lovelace in her latest movies. There have been a few movie posters released showing the actress’ transformation and now the trailer for Lovelace has just been released.
The movie focuses on 70s porn icon Linda Love Lovelace, who was most famous for the movie Deep Throat. Seyfried plays the title character while Sharon Stone, Hank Azaria, Chloë Sevigny, and Peter Sarsgaard fill in the supporting roles. Oh, the movie also features James Franco playing Hugh Hefner.
The movie has a lot of people excited because, well, Amanda Seyfried will be playing a porn star. But people shouldn’t really expect a feel-good movie. Lovelace is a kind of depressing story about a woman who was abused by her husband Chuck Traynor and forced into the porn industry.
Seyfried said that she hoped the movie educates people about Lovelace’s life and shows them that she was much more than a porn star.
Seyfried said: “She was forced into everything! She was forced into pornography. ‘Deep Throat’ for her was really just an escape from her husband. There’s so much about her that no one knows. Unless you read her autobiography, you wouldn’t know. So we’re turning the tables on what the public thinks – on what their idea of her is – and it’s gonna be interesting.”
Here’s a look at the new Lovelace poster.
You can see Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace in theaters this August. But for now, check her out in the trailer here.
