Amanda Seyfried was so deeply involved with the character of Linda Lovelace when she filmed the adult movie star’s biopic, that she was grateful for her role in Les Miserables, for allowing her to escape her emotional involvement with the role. Reporting from the Sundance Festival, where Lovelace is debuting, Fox News reveal that the experience was an intense one for the 27 year-old.

“I had a hard time letting go of Linda at the end of the movie," she said. "I had a really intense time with (co-star) Peter Sarsgaard. I think we both had a hard time letting go because we went to these places. He played a man who consistently beat his wife. And I played a woman who was raped and abused, psychologically and physically. I was constantly taking my clothes off. I didn't have an issue with that. She had an issue with that. So it was a lot. And the only thing that helped was getting onto Les Mis." Sarsgaard plays the role of Chuck Traynor, Linda’s abusive husband.

Seyfried also revealed that there’s more to Linda Lovelace than many may expect. “this woman had a fascinating story,” insists Seyfried. “There are things that a lot of people don't know. People have an idea of her. It's very one-dimensional." The movie has been snapped up by the Weinstein Co.’s Radius label for a reported $3 million so it won’t be long before we can all make our own minds up about the seemingly tragic tale.
