Amanda Seyfried Talks ‘Lovelace’ & Seeing Porn At Age 6

August 9th, 2013 // Leave a Comment

In case you’ve been living under a rock, it’s possible you’ve missed the news that Amanda Seyfried will be starring as Linda Lovelace in the new biopic, Lovelace.

Well not only has the actress been looking fabulous as she goes around promoting the movie, but she’s also been talking to folks about porn in her own life. Oh, and if Linda Lovelace doesn’t ring a bell, she was the actress who starred in Deep Throat.

Now, while most people see porn in their teens, Amanda was a little bit younger than that. 

In an interview with GQ alongside co-star Peter Sarsgaard, they were both asked when they saw porn for the first time. “Yeah. I was five or six. Six, I think,” Amanda told the magazine. The number shocked Peter as Amanda went on to describe it:

“Yeah. It was a cop—a guy dressed in a cop costume, and it was a girl going down on him. It was the first time I’d ever seen a penis, and I remember it being very graphic, and I remember when he came: it was so terrifying. It was funny. But it was also, like, so, so, so wrong. It was 1990 or 1991, and so AIDS was really rampant. Watching any kind of sexual acts when you’re a six-year-old would make you think you were going to contract AIDS somehow.”

I wish she’d told us why she watched it that young, because that seems like a bit much. Luckily the move doesn’t seem to have stayed with her too much. In fact, maybe it just helped her performance.

Launch the gallery to check out all the photos of Amanda keeping it casual in NYC. Will you be checking out Lovelace when it hits theaters? Think 6 is way too young to see porn? Answer these and more in the comments!
