Topless pictures of Amanda Seyfried in her upcoming biopic, Lovelace, have emerged online.
Seyfried sheds her clothes in the film, which documents the controversial and tumultuous life of Linda Lovelace, a porn star who starred in Deep Throat, and it shows her life between the ages of 20 to 32.
The actress has admitted that this role could ruin her career, and the new topless promotional stills are certainly in stark contrast to her previous performances in the likes of Mean Girls and Mamma Mia.
Seyfried told The Sunday Times Magazine, “This is the riskiest thing that’s happening in Hollywood right now.” Seyfried needed to go topless for a number of scenes as she recreated Lovelace’s porn career.
The actress added, “It’s funny, because I felt liberated when I was doing it. I’m sure people that are very protective of me wouldn’t feel very comfortable with that, but it’s like, what’s the big deal?”
She then concluded, “Growing up I was made to feel nudity was wrong because everything was always censored in movies, and it was just like, ‘why are we covering ourselves up?'”
Previously, the 27-year-old admitted that she saw her first pornography scene at the age of 6. She explained, “It was a cop — a guy dressed in a cop costume, and it was a girl going down on him. It was the first time I’d ever seen a penis, and I remember it being very graphic, and I remember when he came: it was so terrifying. It was funny.”
Seyfried then added, “But it was also, like, so, so, so wrong. It was 1990 or 1991, and so AIDS was really rampant. Watching any kind of sexual acts when you’re a six-year-old would make you think you were going to contract AIDS somehow.”
She also admitted that she was terrified before taking the role, but then she jumped into it wholeheartedly.
