Amanda Seyfried stars as a porn star in the upcoming film, “Lovelace.” The film is based on the real-life career of Linda Lovelace, an adult film star, and her rise to fame and subsequent activism against the industry that gave her stardom.
In a trailer for “Lovelace,” the main character is seen as a good, innocent girl engaging in a relationship with an older man. The man introduces her to an entirely new world, including the adult film industry. Lovelace quickly rises to fame, seemingly losing her relationship with her parents along the way. However, she soon decides to quit the porn industry and is faced with the wrath of her husband.
The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard as Chuck Traynor, the man who took Lovelace out of her sheltered life, then became her husband and abuser. Adam Brody also appears as Harry Reems, the porn star who starred with Lovelace in “Deep Throat,” an iconic film that changed the industry. James Franco appears as Hugh Hefner.
“Lovelace” will have a limited release on August 9. Check out the trailer below.
