“In real life, [Linda Lovelance's experience in porn] was much more violent. I don’t think people could have watched. For instance, there’s a gang-rape scene, in which [Lovelace’s husband] Chuck Traynor takes her into a room and she’s gang-raped. It’s portrayed as if this happened to her later. That was the first thing that happened to her. They really didn’t have a relationship. She always called him Mr. Traynor. She was terrified of him. I’m not sure anybody would have been able to sit in a theater and watch what really happened. I think [the filmmakers] did the best they could.”

– Hollywood didn’t get Linda Lovelace’s personal story quite right. That’s according to iconic feminist activist Gloria Steinem, who attended a screening of “Lovelace,” a new film about the infamous “Deep Throat” adult film actress. Lovelace later renounced pornography and came public about the abuse she suffered in the industry (notably at the hands of her husband, who effectively acted as a pimp). “Lovelace,” which stars Amanda Seyfried, apparently makes the sexual violence and physical abuse in her story less heinous and popcorn-friendly for movie-going audiences.  Steinem penned an article for Ms. magazine called “The Real Linda Lovelace,” so she should know. While I haven’t seen “Lovelace” yet, I can recommend the 2005 documentary “Inside Deep Throat” as a realistic portrayal of what occurred. [NYMag.com]

Amanda Seyfried - Lovelace

Before your dude friends drag you from your couch to see “Lovelace,” the new flick about  the star of the infamous porn film “Deep Throat,” you might want to share this phrase with them: “no full-frontal nudity.” At least not from Amanda Seyfried, the woman playing famed porn star Linda Lovelace. The reason for her modesty? “I want to save something for my husband!” Seyfried also described how she used a popsicle to simulate her oral sex scenes with Peter Sarsgaard, who she dubbed as the “easiest person to do anything with.” Those scenes “didn’t feel that sexual or invasive” while shooting, she explained, and instead said that the hardest ones were the ones involving domestic abuse between the two. I’m actually pleased to hear an actress confirm that violence, not sex, causes more distress.

Amanda Seyfried And Other Actors Who Have Played Porn Stars

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. [The Wrap]

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.

The Daily Squeeze: Sex In Movies

  • If you’re planning on staying home this weekend to lounge around in your pajamas and watch a DVD, track down a copy of Power and Passion: The Technology of Orgasm, a doc about sex toys and their history. (The electromechanical vibrator was invented in 1883, the same year as the toaster!) [Variety via Jezebel]
  • Why is it that the sex in mainstream American movies often features an amorous couple knocking over of furniture (something that doesn’t seem all that common in our everyday lives)? This writer thinks its because we’re uncomfortable with sex. [SFGate]
