Violence in 'Lovelace' terrified Amanda Seyfried

Los Angeles, July 23 (IANS) Actress Amanda Seyfried says she was not afraid of nudity in "Lovelace", but the violence and beatings in the biopic scared her.

"Lovelace" is a biopic on porn star Linda Lovelace.

"It was a risky role to play, I suppose, but the nudity didn't scare me. I was more afraid of some of the violence and beatings she (her character) suffered. But she was a courageous woman and I've never been so affected by a role as I was by this," quoted the 27-year-old actress as saying.

"The story of Linda Lovelace's life is a very dark place to go. We couldn't show half of what she went through, although our film is still a pretty harrowing experience," she added.

"Lovelace" focuses on "Deep Throat" actress' life in the adult film industry. It traces her life from the time she was 20 to 32 years.
