“I found it fascinating that the idea of her, it’s all very much a general idea of who she is based on the fact that she was a porn star. But she wasn’t really a porn star, she wanted to be an actress and she had a really intense, violent relationship with her husband and her husband essentially just coerced her into this world and she was exploited and she was left with essentially nothing. I think that’s not what people expect to hear at all. She tried so hard to be heard and I felt like that’s part of the reason I wanted to make this.” - Amanda Seyfried on playing Linda Lovelace
