Sweet little Amanda Seyfried from the musical “Mamma Mia!” doesn’t make the words “porn star” come to mind. But if you saw that stone-cold fox sex it up with Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore as a call girl in “Chloe,” you know she won’t have any trouble playing Linda Lovelace for a biopic about the porn star. “Lovelace” will focus on the star of “Deep Throat,” an iconic ’70s skin flick about a woman whose clitoris is in the back of her throat, so she can only orgasm from … well, you know.

Amanda isn’t the only actress in Hollywood who’ve made a movie premiere an extremely awkward moment for their mama. After the jump, more actors and actresses who’ve played porn stars.
Before she was big on wigs, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak was big on hairspray. Bravo released some pictures of her back in the day. I must say, her natural hair is impressively large. And, now that I can see her real face, it’s clear who her daughter Brielle takes after.

Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Salman Rushdie took a break from Tweeting about smart stuff (like which Phillip Roth novel is best … I vote for American Pastoral!) to weigh in on Kim Kardashian’s divorce in limerick form:

So this is what it looks like when highbrow and lowbrow make a Twitter baby. Absolutely delightful! I feel like Kim should consider hiring him as her publicist. He could write limericks instead of press releases.
Hipster men of the world, try not to wet yourselves. Are you sitting down? Zooey Deschanel shall be single again. Life is imitating art for actress and singer who plays a single gal on Fox’s “New Girl.” Us Weekly confirmed that she and hubby Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie are splitting mutually and amicably after two years of marriage. Another indie dream duo is dead. Clap your hands if you still believe in marriage. [Us Weekly]
Some weeks in the blogging world are known as “slow news weeks.” Those are weeks devoid of pregnancy announcements, sex scandals, and A-list divorces. And there are other weeks when tabloid stories are breaking like waves in a hurricane. Yesterday, we enjoyed a double story break with the announcement of the end of Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries and Jessica Simpson’s “mummy” confirmation. When big stories break, it’s always strategic. Whenever a celebrity wants to hide something, they make an official statement after the weeklies have dropped.
