Amanda Seyfried 'Felt Liberated' Doing On-Screen Nudity For 'Lovelace'

Amanda Seyfried's portrayal of porn star Linda Lovelace unsurprisingly involved some nudity. (After all, she was playing the woman who starred in "Deep Throat.") But the star told press that filming the nude scenes was a positive experience.

According to People magazine, during the "Lovelace" press day in Los Angeles, Seyfried spoke about how her on-screen nudity made her feel:

It's funny, because I felt liberated when I was doing it. I'm sure people that are very protective of me wouldn't feel very comfortable with that, but it's like, what's the big deal? ... Growing up I was made to feel nudity was wrong because everything was always censored in movies, and it was just like, why are we covering ourselves up?

Seyfried has a point. Despite the media's fascination with how actors and actresses feel when they strip down (see every interview Lena Dunham has ever given), making nudity a huge deal doesn't really do anyone any favors. As The Gloss' Julia Sonenshein pointed out: "They're just bodies." We don't need to run around naked at all times, but taking the mystery away from nudity might help us all recognize that our "just bodies" are nothing to be ashamed of.
