Lovelace Information

Lovelace is a 2013 American biographical film about Linda Boreman, better known as Linda Lovelace. It covers the part of her life when she was "20 to 32". The film was directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, written by Andy Bellin and stars Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Adam Brody and Juno Temple. The film had its world premiere on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.


Linda Lovelace gets under the all-consuming influence of her abusive husband and self-declared manager, Chuck Traynor, who uses all means possible to persuade her to comply with his demands.

The fragile woman becomes an infamous porn star, seems to be happy, but eventually breaks free from her husband and discloses the truth in order to prevent other women from getting similarly exploited.




In January 2011, pregnant Kate Hudson was offered the part of Linda Lovelace while James Franco was in talks to portray Lovelace's husband Chuck Traynor. The production of the film was said to start after the birth of Hudson's child and as of April 2011, the actress was still involved in the project. However, on November 1, 2011, Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard were reported to be in discussions to play Lovelace and Traynor. Sharon Stone told on November 16, 2011 that she would play Lovelace's mother. In December 2011, Juno Temple and Wes Bentley were cast as Lovelace's best friend and Larry Marchiano, her second husband.

In December 2011, Franco received the part of Hugh Hefner. Robert Patrick, Hank Azaria, Chris Noth, and Bobby Cannavale landed the respective roles of John Boreman (Lovelace's father), Jerry Domiano, Anthony Romano and Butchie Peraino. On January 2, 2012, Adam Brody and Eric Roberts were cast as Harry Reems and Nat Laurendi, while Demi Moore joined the film to make cameo as Gloria Steinem. A few weeks later she dropped out of the film for personal issues and was ultimately replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker. Cory Hardrict and Debi Mazar play Frankie Crocker and Dolly Sharp. ChloŽ Sevigny plays a feminist journalist

To prepare for the role, Seyfried read Lovelace's books and studied videos of her speaking. She also watched the film Deep Throat and underwent a New York accent training. Seyfried said of Lovelace: "She was such a different person than what we expect. It's a good story to tell, and I'm really, really excited about it." Brody prepared for the role of Reems by watching his interviews. He told that "the arrest and indictment of Reems on federal charges of conspiracy to distribute obscenity across state lines" are not shown in the film. He described as "brotherly" the relationship Reems shares with Deep Throat co-star Lovelace, explaining that "he was the antithesis of her husband [Traynor]".



The Hollywood Reporter reported that filming had already begun 2012 in Los Angeles. A few days later, photographs of Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace on a film set were published. Scenes were shot in Glendale, California. Filming wrapped in February 2012.

During the filming, the cooperation between Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard went so well that she called him with hindsight "the best actor I've ever worked with".


The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
