Amanda Seyfried Goes Porny for Deep Throat Vintage Art

Happy Monday! With filming underway on Lovelace, one of two competing biopics about '70s porn actress turned anti-porn advocate Linda Lovelace, the New York Times has a look at a faux-vintage poster featuring Amanda Seyfried as the XXX starlet in her star-making 1972 skin flick, Deep Throat.

Lovelace's life story, as we've touched on before, is a very dark one; after rising in the porn ranks, Lovelace broke off and accused husband Chuck Traynor of abuse and forcing her into sex acts and prostitution. The NYT profile addresses the darkness of Lovelace's tale, curiously enough, as an element producer Heidi Jo Markel and Co. wanted to balance out with levity; it also highlights the link and difference in approach between Markel and rival Lovelace project Inferno, which Markel was once helping to develop.

But first things first: Before the Lovelace war really heats up, and until we see just how directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman pull off their version of things (check out the James Franco-as-Hugh Hefner propositioning Lovelace anecdote at the end for a taste), let's take a closer look at Seyfried as the porn icon. Is Seyfried in period pose untangling your tingle?
