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.
“Breaking Bad”‘s Walter White might just be a hero for the Occupy Wall Street movement. After all, he’s a perfect example of a guy whose health insurance wouldn’t cover his medical treatment, forcing him to pick up a little “side job” in order to make ends meet. Sure, there’s that whole meth problem, but … oh wait, nevermind. [The Daily What]
Best Coast singer Bethany Cosentino’s obsession with her big orange tabby cat Snacks is well-documented. So it should come as no surprise that Cosentino and her band mates made an entire video featuring kittens. Admittedly, this video for “Crazy for You” is a couple months old, but we figured today was as good a day as any to revel in a few minutes of purrrrfect harmony. [YouTube]
No one in my book club is having children after last month’s selection: We Need To Talk About Kevin, by Lionel Shriver. It’s a novel about Eva, a successful travel guide writer who is ambivalent about getting pregnant and ends up giving birth to pure evil. No, it’s not like “Rosemary’s Baby” with a literally evil child: her son Kevin is psychopathic and Eva realizes it, but her husband is completely oblivious. So Kevin grows up, tormenting and terrorizing the people around him, until one day as a teenager he commits a heinous crime that will leave your blood cold. It’s an amazing book that I highly recommend reading. So I can’t wait for the film version in theaters early next year, starring Tilda Swinton as the mom, John C. Reilly as the dad, and Ezra Miller as Kevin. The trailer is absolutely chilling, so I can only imagine how disturbing the actual movie will be. [YouTube]
