Amanda Seyfried: I like creeps

Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfried says “broken” guys can be “attractive”.

The stunning Hollywood actress plays adult movie star Linda Lovelace in the new film Lovelace. Linda famously starred in the shocking 1972 movie Deep Throat and later claimed she had suffered abuse at the hands of her husband Chuck Traynor.

Amanda, who previously dated her Mamma Mia! co-star Dominic Cooper, understands why some women are drawn to the wrong guys.

“Unfortunately there’s something attractive about someone who is broken, for me, and for a lot of women that I’ve spoken to. My best friend and I are attracted to creeps - sometimes,” she said in an interview with British newspaper The Sun. “They’re interesting and mysterious and they provide us with this rush and this need to chase or fix - just these needs they fill in yourself.

“It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a weird psychology but unfortunately it’s the way the world works.”

Amanda’s latest role is a departure from her previous films. Lovelace contains a series of sex scenes and required the 27-year-old star to appear nude.

Amanda doesn’t understand why the subject of sex on the big screen is still considered risqué.

“Sex in movies shouldn’t be as big a deal as it is. Guns are huge in American cinema but with sex everybody is so prim about it here. Something is changing in American cinema,” she argued. “We’re going through some kind of sexual revolution right now, I’d like to think.”

Amanda had a great time making Lovelace, revealing she found the process of shooting musical blockbuster Les Misérables much tougher. The cast were required to sing live during scenes and the actress had to make sure she kept her voice in top condition.

“It was exhausting trying to keep your voice protected,” she recalled. “It’s difficult because we’re very fragile and that was mainly the reason it was so tough.”
