Amanda Seyfried IS Linda Lovelace!

Acting in movie bios can be the best way to win an Oscar – see Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles or Sissy Spacek as Loretta Lynn as examples – but taking on a controversial person’s life is also fraught with danger…I mean, look at Seyfried HERE!

Amanda Seyfried built a career in films popular like “Mamma Mia” and “Les Miz”, but, along with a stellar cast, took on a very controversial role…

The story of Linda Lovelace is a fascinating, tragic one – Seyfried’s co-star is Peter Sarsgaard, who was also willing to take on the very difficult role of Chuck Traynor, Lovelace’s abusive husband…along with James Franco, who plays Hugh Hefner in the film…

Seyfried is terrific in the role, capturing the naïveté of a woman who became a star without realizing the consequences:

This is a story that is so sad on so many levels, yet it is also the story of an amazing time of social upheaval in our country, so let’s take a look!

Meet Linda Boreman AKA Linda Lovelace!

Linda Boreman was born on January 10, 1949 – and was better known by her stage name Linda Lovelace, made instantly famous for her performance in the 1972 XXX film “Deep Throat.” Boreman later denounced her pornography career and became a spokeswoman for the anti-pornography movement.

An Actress At The Forefront Of The Sexual Revolution…

The story of Linda Boreman really begins when she meets Chuck Traynor. He woudl become her husband AND Manager. These pictures show a happy couple, but according to Boreman, Traynor was violent and controlling.

Boreman said that Traynor forced her to move to New York, where he became her manager and husband, and got her into the then-underground porn business.

Allegedly coerced by Traynor, Boreman was soon performing as “Linda Lovelace” in hardcore “loops”, which are short 8mm silent films made for peep shows. At the time, XXX movies were an underground industry, shown in the grimiest movie theaters on 42nd street in New York.

In 1972, Boreman starred in “Deep Throat”, in which she famously performed the film’s eponymous act. “Linda Lovelace” became a household name, as the film achieved unprecedented popularity among mainstream audiences. In fact, the movie became front page news, and even got a review in The New York Times.

Bring On The Pickets!

“Deep Throat” was prosecuted for obscenity all across the country, and picketed by religious groups as well – but the film opened the doors to XXX-movies being screened everywhere…and the sexual revolution was underway…

At one point, the movie industry trade bible Variety actually included the box office gross for adult films on their box office chart…and pornography made it into the mainstream…

Deep Throat – The Most Popular Adult Film Of All Time! 

This is a newspaper ad from my hometown paper in Seattle – highlighting just how long the film played in town!

The box office chart in Variety magazine actually included the film – the first time that ever happened for a XXX-rated film!

See that story here:

“How far does a girl have to go to untangle her tingle?” Look at the imagery here – a woman raising her arms up in the air – happy and smiling! The poster’s yellow color and happy smile suggested a sunny, fun movie – certainly NOT pornography. This ushered in a new freedom in film – an era when “XXX” went mainstream and never looked back.

Cue A Sequel! “A Depressing Fast Buck Attempt…” Indeed!

In 1974, Boreman starred in the R-rated sequel “Deep Throat II”, which a critic writing in Variety described as “the shoddiest of exploitation film traditions, a depressing fast buck attempt to milk a naive public”.

Linda also became a published Author at this time – twice!

In 1974, she published two “pro-porn” autobiographies, “Inside Linda Lovelace” and “The Intimate Diary of Linda Lovelace.”

And Now, Things Turn Grim…

Even with these books out, the real story apparently wasn’t being told…but that was about to change…Linda Boreman changed her tune soon after, and her stories became much more serious and tragic.

Linda Lovelace Chuck Traynor

In her suit to divorce her husband Chuck Traynor, she claimed that he forced her into pornography at gunpoint, and that in Deep Throat itself, bruises from his beatings can be seen on her legs. She made the assertion that her husband “would force her to do these things by pointing an M-16 rifle at her head.”

Boreman also claimed in her later autobiography that her marriage had been plagued by violence, rape, forced prostitution, and private pornography.

Ordeal!

Later, Linda Boreman published a book that described her ordeal…and she became an outspoken advocate against pornography.

And Then, A Tragic Death…

On April 3, 2002, Boreman was involved in a serious automobile accident, suffering massive trauma and internal injuries. On April 22, 2002, she was taken off life support and died in Denver, Colorado, at the age of 53.

Seyfried also bared all in the film “Chloe” and continued to make films across all genres…Lovelace was the first “XXX” Superstar, but there were others:

  1. There probably won’t be a movie about Nina Hartley. Her story isn’t tragic enough….

    • You are absolutely right…mainstream cinema will only tell the stories of the tragedies or the inept, which is why films were made about Ed Wood and “The Room”…while both are terrific, there’s a smugness in how cult filmmakers and talent are treated, and certainly that is the case with adult performers…

  2. I thought ‘Lovelace’ was an excellent bio film, with the cast taking it seriously, and delivering great performances. It was shown uncut on mainstream, TV here, and I enjoyed it much more than I did ‘Deep Throat’.
    Best wishes, Pete.
