Risque roles for Hollywood leading ladies always opens doors for industry accolades, so I’m assuming Amanda Seyfried was thinking Best Actress Academy Award when she signed her name to “Lovelace.” The biopic which puts Amanda in the lead as the former porn star-turned anti-porn activist Linda Susan Boreman, a.k.a. Linda Lovelace. Needless to say, this looks very promising.

Here’s more about the film from IMDb: “Story of Linda Lovelace, who is used and abused by the porn industry at the behest of her coercive husband, before taking control of her life.” She struck fame in 1972 with her film “Deep Throat.” Her Wiki page has more juice:

In 1972, Boreman (Lovelace) starred in Deep Throat, which achieved surprising and unprecedented popularity among mainstream audiences, and even a review in The New York Times.[4] In Deep Throat she famously performed the film’s eponymous act; additionally, all of her pubic hair was shaved off and she engaged in anal sex. None of these were common in pornographic films of the early 1970s.

[More about the actress:]

Linda Susan Boreman (January 10, 1949 – April 22, 2002), better known by her stage name Linda Lovelace, was an American pornographic actress who was famous for her performance of deep throat fellatio in the enormously successful 1972 hardcore porn film Deep Throat. She later denounced her pornography career, claiming that she had been forced into it by her first husband, and for a while became a spokeswoman for the anti-pornography movement. [Source]
