I can’t think of any movie I’d rather watch less than Lovelace, but star Amanda Seyfried seems to think it’s going to be revolutionary and people are going to care enough about it that it could possibly ruin her career since she gets naked on screen.
From The Sunday Times Magazine (via The Mirror):
“This is the riskiest thing that’s happening in Hollywood right now,” she told The Sunday Times Mag.
Amanda, who was a little less bare in Abba musical Mamma Mia! was concerned what the amount of flesh she flashed could do for her reputation as an actress.
“The first thing you think about is that it could ruin my career,” she added.
“It’s funny, because I felt liberated when I was doing it. I’m sure people that are very protective of me wouldn’t feel very comfortable with that,” she continued. “But it’s like, what’s the big deal.”
I guess this is what she’s worried about:
Not that they’re at all comparable as actresses (Seyfried is mediocre at best, and that’s being generous), but has she never heard of Kate Winslet? She gets her boobs out in like, every single film and is still rather widely regarded as a total queen and the Meryl Streep of her generation. No one cares, girl. This will just be another film in your list of credits that makes people cringe but they ultimately probably won’t remember much about.
