Amanda Seyfried: Wigs work wonders

Amanda Seyfried has shared the "wonders" of a wig when it comes to totally transforming for a film role.

The 27-year-old actress stars as porn star Linda Lovelace in biographical drama Lovelace.

Amanda looks totally different as the big screen character, and insists it's all down to a clever costume. The stunning star relied on hair pieces to totally alter her signature style.

"It's crazy to become somebody completely different - I've never channelled anybody for a role before," she explained in an interview with

"Costumes work wonders for people and with this more so than ever - I had brown contacts and wigs and had freckles drawn on. It didn't take long because I barely wore any make-up, but man, the wonders a wig can do. At first, it was strange seeing myself like that, but I love disappearing."

Amanda stars in some risqué scenes in the movie. The blonde beauty initially had reservations about watching the film with her father thanks to her rather exposed appearances.

"I was nervous about my dad seeing me naked," she admitted.

"It was hard watching it with him, but he's such a big supporter and I really need his approval. He was so influential in getting me into the role and getting me there emotionally. But nudity isn't very scary - there are certain things that I don't want to expose for personal reasons, but I do expose more than some people because I'm comfortable with that."
