A brunette and freckled Amanda Seyfried portrays notorious '70s adult film star
Linda Lovelace in an upcoming biopic, and we have an exclusive clip from the movie featuring one of her early photo shoots…
In ETonline's Lovelace clip, Linda sits down for the photo shoot in a revealing bathing suit. The photographer (played by Wes Bentley) asks her to describe the person she's playing, and as she talks, her inhibitions seem to melt away as she opens up just like the flower she's describing.
Set against the sexual revolution of the 1970s, Lovelace tracks the rise of the legendary Deep Throat star. To the public, she was an enthusiastic spokesperson for sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism. But behind closed doors, she was used and abused by the porn industry at the hands of her coercive husband, Chuck Traynor (played by Peter Sarsgaard). In time, she learned to take control of her life, and soon changed her tune to reveal that she was actually the survivor of a far darker story.
Directed by Oscar winners Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (Howl, The Celluloid Closet), Lovelace also stars Hank Azaria, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, James Franco, Debi Mazar, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Sharon Stone, Chloe Sevigny and Juno Temple.
