For the perky blonde Amanda Seyfried it’s a long stretch from the star-struck Sophie of Mamma Mia! to the dark and troubled Deep Throat porn queen Linda Lovelace. And when I talked with 26-year-old Amanda the other day she was still, as she put it, “detoxing” just a few days after finishing work on the biopic Lovelace. She plays the woman who became the world’s first erotic superstar from the age of 17 to 32 and, she told me,

“It was a really challenging role and I don’t know how it’s going to go for me. It’s the first time I’ve ever had to play a real life character and I took the experience home with me every night. It’s a really troubled story and I’m still getting over it.”
 Her next role is sure to take her mind off it: she is due to go to New Orleans shortly to meet up with Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman to co-star in the movie version of Les Miserables.
