Amanda Seyfried plays 70s adult film star Linda Lovelace in her new biopic.

Amanda Seyfried is featured in a new trailer for her upcoming movie “Lovelace,” and shows a range of emotions that will have critics talking Oscars, although she will be a long shot to win one given the nature of the subject matter.

She plays ’70s porn star Linda Lovelace, real name Linda Boreman, who rewrote the book on adult films with “Deep Throat,” a 1972 picture that popularized porn and pointed it toward the mainstream.

Unfortunately, the story doesn’t have a happy ending for the real Linda Lovelace, who was always conflicted about her work and later claimed she was abused by controlling husband Chuck Traynor.

In one of her scenes, Seyfried reportedly performs oral sex on co-star Peter Sarsgaard, who plays Traynor. But Seyfried told Conan O’Brien that no real sex occurs in the movie.

“We had to do some oral sex, so I used a Popsicle,” she explained. “Which is great, because it would make my lips wet and inflamed,” she added.

Seyfried has more experience with on-screen nudity than her young Hollywood contemporaries thanks to her 2009 role in the movie “Chloe.” A look back at that film shows her at her erotic best. Check it out here.

The biopic, due to be released later this summer, features a supporting cast that includes James Franco, Hank Azaria, Adam Brody, Chris Noth, Chloe Sevigny and Juno Temple.
