Amanda Seyfried is most known for her roles in Mamma Mia and Les Miserables. Roles that could be described as "good girls".
In her newest film, Lovelace, she puts a different spin on the good girl image.
Despite Seyfried's performance being applauded in many of the Lovelace reviews, the actress recognizes that there is risk in taking on the role of Linda Lovelace.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Amanda Seyfried admits that the porn biopic "may ruin my career."
A film about a porn icon is not one that many actresses might jump on so Seyfried is likely correct in her reservations.
However, if the film's first weekend at the box office, in limited release, is any indication, Seyfried has no need for concern.
Lovelace averaged $184,000 in each of its 118 theaters which is not too shabby. Not great, but not horrible by any means.
Are Seyfried's fears unfounded? What say you?
