Amanda SeyfriedÂ is almost unrecognizable as average-woman-turned-iconic-porn-star Linda Lovelace, in this first image from the biopic Lovelace. The movie aims to tell us the real story behind Linda, the seemingly fun-loving, sexually confident woman who starred in the infamous Deep ThroatÂ porn back in the ’70s. Linda Boreman, as she was known outside of the movies, was married to Chuck TraynorÂ (portrayed here by Peter SarsgaardÂ with very creepy facial hair); later in life, she accused him of forcing her into the movie under threats of beating and other abuse.
As you might’ve guessed, the photo above is from happier, pre-Deep ThroatÂ times. The movie also stars Demi MooreÂ as feminist Gloria Steinem;Â James FrancoÂ as Hugh Hefner;Â and Adam BrodyÂ as Harry Reems, who plays the doctor who informs Linda’s character that her clitoris is stuck in the back of her throat and she must perform oral sex to get rid of her “tingle.” Oh, the ’70s.
