Amanda Seyfried On UK Porn Ban: 'You Should Be Free To Watch It Whenever You Want'

This month, Amanda Seyfried stars as Linda Lovelace in "Lovelace," the new biopic about the late porn star. The role required the 27-year-old actress to strip down, physically and emotionally, delving into the life of the famed pornography actress.

With the release of "Lovelace," Seyfried spoke out on the UK's recent porn ban, restricting citizens' access to pornography. "You can't put a ban on it," Seyfried is quoted as saying in an interview with Bang Showbiz. "I mean, kids under age are still drinking. It just makes it that much more powerful. It's freedom. You should be free to watch it whenever you want."

Not that Seyfried is a fan: "I've watched porn, yes. Enjoyed? No," Seyfried added. "I saw some when I was six. It was really disturbing. I was at my friend's house and their parents weren't around and the older brother, who, I think was 10 at the time, puts this on and I was just blown away."

Seyfried wasn't the only big name to speak out against the ban. Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales gave his take earlier this month, saying, "It's an absolutely ridiculous idea. It won't work. The software you would use to implement this doesn't work. Additionally when we use cases of a pedophile who's been addicted to child porn videos online, you realize all that [David] Cameron's rules would require him to do is opt in and say 'Yes, I would like porn please.'"
