[Movies] Amanda Seyfried Wasn't Afraid To Get Naked In Lovelace Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.25.2013
She was fine with it...
In an interview with Indiewire, Amanda Seyfried talked about her role in Lovelace and the fact she's not bothered by being topless in the film.
On being comfortable with nudity: "I don't know why I'm comfortable. Nudity: whatever! Sex: we all do it. There's a time and a place to be naked (laughs). There's no part in this movie that makes me think, ‘Oh, wow, she's naked.' She's a porn star! We simulated some scenes but there's no graphic content in this movie, at all. I mean the graphic stuff is when he's raping me on my wedding night. You see my skirt go up over my head when I'm being gang raped, but it's like so perfectly done. "Chloe" is so graphic. And this is not."
On getting intimate with Peter Saarsgard in the film: "Both of us are not shy about our private parts. We also weren't walking around with our genitals out; our bottom half genitals. That might have been a little strange for me. I don't really have any interest in people seeing my vagina. It's just a personal thing. I don't mind seeing other people's vaginas. I guess I'm just insecure in that way. Peter… same thing. He was always covered up in that way. I think it's just our mutual understanding of we needed to be naked a lot of points in the movie and it wasn't a big deal. It's like a costume. I don't know why I feel comfortable. To be honest, when I was younger, I was terrified of sex. I don't know what happened over the years. I now have an appreciation for it, for people who don't put so much heaviness on it."
On if it was a hard film to watch: "No, it was just the critical aspects. I'm very critical of myself. I didn't have a hard time watching it at all. From another angle, I think it's fun to see something that you worked so hard on put together. It's nice to see something come together in a really good way."
