Amanda Seyfried talks about her role in Lovelace

 
Amanda Seyfried is making the rounds as she promotes her latest film ‘Loveless,’ which is debuting in theaters around the country this month. When the subject of your film is one of the most famous porn movies of all-time you can imagine some of the scenes can be a little graphic. Amanda Seyfried is generating a lot of buzz for the film, she portrays Linda Loveless, the legendary porn star from the film ‘Deep Throat’.
 
Amanda Seyfried (27) talked about working on the film, along with some of the more mature scenes at the Los Angeles press-event stating, “It’s funny, because I felt liberated when I was doing it.” She added, “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?”
 
The highly anticipated film is set to open August 9, 2013. Although sex-scenes and nudity are commonplace in movies today, it’s all too common that some people are still offended by it, but like many actors Seyfried doesn’t really see the big deal in the matter. She told reporters, “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?”
 
She continued, “It didn’t seem as scary as I thought it was (going to be),” adding, “It was astonishing how quickly I was able to jump in whole-heartedly.” It’s probably a good thing that she did, the film is getting terrific press, and early critiques of the film have been positive.
