Yet another film I’ve been waiting for since this year’s Sundance, it’s the Linda Boreman biopic, Lovelace, featuring the first ever sufficiently gratuitous Amanda Seyfried nude scenes. I say “sufficiently” because the Mean Girls veteran is no stranger to on-screen nudity. We saw her strip completely naked before jumping into a pool in the very dimly-lit scene in Alpha Dog. Then in 2009 we a hint of nipple here and a flash of sideboob there in the erotic thriller, Chloe, which included the famous lesbian sex scene with Julianne Moore. But all of that ain’t nothin’ like what you’ll see here and now.
The Amanda Seyfried sex scene that starts off the nudity in Lovelace is considerably less tame than its predecessor. When it started out, I actually got a little disheartened when I saw the actress walk into the room wearing nothing but her ocean-patterned panties but with her hair covering her breasts. Thankfully, that turned out to not be a sign of things to come, with her hair quickly separating, giving the camera a nice look as she dives onto the bed. From this point on, the director didn’t even try to keep her covered. Her titties are in full view for the entire rest of the scene as she’s lying on the bed in the nude.
The next time we see Amanda Seyfried naked is when she’s skinny dipping in a motel pool. Well, not entirely skinny dipping; she is wearing bikini bottoms. We do, however, get a nice look at her large, bouncy breasts from under the water as she comes up to surface. The filmmakers missed out on following that shot with an out-of-water one, in my opinion, but it’s all good. The third nude scene – actually two nude scenes close together – has the now famous Linda Lovelace in a photo shoot with a red polka dot dress and umbrella. Rather, it does so for the first, like, 4 seconds, after which the dress is no longer in the picture.
We see Amanda Seyfried’s breasts here from a good few angles and the picture even triples up the amount of shots shown at the same time. It’s like someone egged them on to see how much Amanda Seyfried nudity they could put up on the screen at the same time. Not that I’m complaining or anything like that. The photo shoot ends, and then the last time we see Amanda Seyfried nude is in a very rapey sex scene with her husband Chuck Traynor, played by Peter Sarsgaard. He tears her dress open, exposing her breasts, and does the deed while choking her. An interesting homage to David Carradine, but considerably less arousing than her other nude scenes in the film.
Something that folks might notice – particularly those that have seen Chloe – is that Amanda Seyfried’s boobs seem a lot smaller in this film. I searched about to see if there’s any news of the actress having gotten breasts reduction surgery à la Christina Ricci or something like that, but that does not seem to be the case. She lost a fair amount of weight before Lovelace was shot, so I guess her once massive funbags just melted away along with the rest. A real pity, I gotta say.
Nonetheless, if you want to see Amanda Seyfried topless without all of the studio tricks hiding the good parts, you’ll probably enjoy Lovelace. The only thing I have to say – and I know that this seems kinda contradictory to the rest of the post – but I’m kinda surprised there was so little nudity in the film. I mean, there is a decent amount, to be sure – probably a little over two minutes’ worth – but it’s still a film about a porn star. I expected that there’d at least be a full frontal scene. Maybe next time.
Video and caps from the Amanda Seyfried nude scenes from Lovelace are below. I’ve edited all of the scenes into one clip since there are a few short ones that don’t need to be standing on their own. Have fun!
