Amanda Seyfried on dark Lovelace role

Inside issue 209 of Total Film magazine , we bring you the full story behind the success of ‘70s porn phenomenon Deep Throat , starring Linda Lovelace.

Amanda Seyfried stars in the title role of Lovelace , a new biopic that sheds light on the woman who went from infamous starlet to anti-porn campaigner.

We chat to Seyfried inside the issue (which is available for the hard-to-resist price of just £1.99 on your iPad ), and here’s an excerpt of what of she had to say about a role that’s guaranteed to become a talking point…

Playing a porn star could be about the most controversial role an actress can take on…

“It was a tough shoot but that’s what I was looking for. I’ve played in several romantic movies but I’ve always been looking for darker roles, and the story of Linda Lovelace’s life is a very dark place to go.

“We couldn’t show half of what she went through, although our film is still a pretty harrowing experience. But it was still the most intense and most rewarding experience I’ve ever had on a film.”

Lovelace opens in the UK on 23 August 2013. For much more from Seyfried,pick up issue 209 of Total Film magazine, which is out now!
