Fresh from cooing her way into our hearts in the holiday hit "Les Miserables," Amanda Seyfried arrived in Park City Tuesday night with "Lovelace," a project that couldn't be more different from Tom Hooper's earnest, Oscar-nominated musical. In the biopic, helmed by "Howl" duo Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Seyfried tackles her most challenging role to date as Linda Lovelace, the pornographic movie legend and star of "Deep Throat." A hard-core cultural sensation, Lovelace led an abused and troubled life at the hands of her husband and manager Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard). Indiewire sat down with Seyfried the morning following the film's world premiere at the Eccles Theatre (where the film was swiftly acquired by Harvey Weinstein's new hybrid label RADiUS-twc) to discuss this new stage in her career, why she still looks back on "Mean Girls" as her best work and the nudity required to play Lovelace. »
