Lovelace has stirred controversy ever since it was announced but have you seen the first official film poster yet? We couldn’t be more excited to see Amanda Seyfried’s performance as Linda Lovelace now. The brunette curls, the brown eyes and all that 70s clothing (we’re in love with her tribal-pattern rucksack and array of wedge sandals.) Amanda has spoken out about the pressure of playing such a role, she recently said, ‘it’s going to be really hard and kind of terrifying at the same time! I’m playing someone that existed in history and had quite an established reputation for something very extreme.'
And to think, Lindsay Lohan was set to play the American porn actress and later, spokeswoman for the anti-porn movement but had to drop out due to her problems with the law (eek.) With Demi Moore also having to bow out of playing renowned feminist Gloria Steinem due to her stint in rehab, Lovelace will officially see Chris Roth, yes, that’s Mr. Big to you, play alongside Sarah Jessica Parker again as SJP was pulled into the role. Sold yet?
A clean-shaven James Franco will play a young Hugh Hefner and An Education’s Peter Sarsgaard is set to play the adult actress's pornographer husband, Chuck Traynor. Oo er. The film is set to chart Linda’s troubled relationship with her tyrannical husband and is due for release later this year. The all-star cast also sees The O.C’s Adam Brody, Hank Azaria, Sharon Stone, fashwan girl Chloe Sevigny and ridiculously cool Juno Temple. Get your aviators out, people. The 70s are back.
