Amanda Seyfried ‘terrified’ of porn role

Amanda Seyfried ‘terrified’ of porn role

We wouldn’t usually think that following in Lindsay Lohan’s acting footsteps would be too scary. Following in her actual, real life footsteps – into courtrooms, prisons, and morgues where she carries out community service – is a far more daunting prospect.

But Amanda Seyfried has said that her upcoming role as porn star Linda Lovelace will be “really hard and kind of terrifying”. Lindsay Lohan was originally pegged for the X-rated role, but after a series of well-documented legal woes, she was dropped from the project.

It was rumoured that Kate Hudson was going to take the part, but now it’s been confirmed that Lindsay’s Mean Girls co-star is to play Lovelace.

Amanda told ABCNews.com: “It’s going to be really hard and kind of terrifying at the same time.”

Speaking at her 26th birthday party at New York’s Norwood club, she added: "It’s something completely different. I do have some liberties there but I am playing someone that existed in history and had quite an established reputation for something very extreme.”

Since getting the role, Amanda’s been doing lots of research (we’re sure it’s more than just watching a bit of porn): “I’ve read everything I can possibly read and now I just have to start physically getting into a mode.

“She was such a different person than what we expect. It’s a good story to tell, and I’m really, really excited about it.”

Are you looking forward to seeing Amanda play a porn star? Or do you think Lindsay Lohan would’ve been better for the role?
