Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard attend the official wrap party for their film Lovelace, presented by DeLeon Tequila, at The Writer’s Room on Friday (February 3) in Los Angeles.
The 26-year-old actress and the 40-year-old actor were joined by their co-star Juno Temple, 22, at the party.

Her Glamour interview gives perfect illustration of why Amanda may never reach that next level in terms of her acting. She says she would never do full frontal, yet she takes a role as a porn star. This pretty much guarantees Lovelace movie will be a tame compromise. I can't imagine someone like Fassbender or Carey Mulligan taking on a role of a porn star whilst declaring they would never do full frontal. I don't get why actors get cast for parts that they aren't willing to go full out (literally) for.

Other than that, she manages to be very candid and unfiltered in her interviews without coming across poorly like Rooney Mara. There is something endearing about her honesty.

^Then again, isn't most of the nudity one gets to see in Hollywood gratuitous?

Besides, you really don't need to get your kit off to prove you can act. The reason her career hasn't taken off like Emma Stone's is primarily because of poor script selection. She just appears to sign everything that's offered to her and doesn't appear to be selective at all. Films like Red Riding Hood, In Time et al did zilch for her career.

Well even she has actually done nudity before (in Chloe) but not frontal. I feel like if you really are passionate about acting, you should be willing to do things that you don't want to do including nudity. That's what makes acting so challenging!

However, Cate Blanchett has managed to have a successful career without doing nudity (that I know of). I don't know what her stance is on nudity, but she did have a body double for Elizabeth: The Golden Age because she didn't agree with the director's decision to put it in the film.

But other than Blanchett, it's no real coincidence that the actresses who refuse to do it don't get very far in their respective careers. Perhaps these actresses have turned down roles that could've done something for their careers?

Yes, but she's playing a porn star in Lovelace--nudity would be almost a necessity in such a role, no?

Cate Blanchett is definitely a rarity among the more esteemed actresses. The "America's Sweetheart" variety of actresses (Reese, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston..etc) get away with the no nudity because of their perceived box office power and their movie choices are safe. Actors in the higher quality artistic films that get nominated for awards tend to be more fearless and less prudish-- Julianne Moore comes to mind.

Amanda's film choices are so all over the place it's hard to say where she's aiming. Maybe she's modeling herself after Angelina? I think Emma Stone is headed towards "Sweetheart" territory-- I'd be surprised if her clothes ever came off.

^^ Amanda Seyfried modeling herself after Angelina Jolie?? I really don't think so. Angelina has done some really serious, well received films. I think Amanda's career, if it lasts, will consist of purely cheesy B-movies. Lets face it - she's not a super great actress, and she's not very selective, as someone previously mentioned. And she doesn't have the same spunky personality as Emma Stone. Amanda reminds me of someone like Rachel McAdams; she's just there to do the cutesy movies, but to be taken seriously? Don't think so.

I. Want. Her. Hair.

Also, 'Lovelace' looks interesting. Does it take place in the 70s..?

Rachel might do crap, but at least she balances it out. She's worked with Woody Allen and Terrence Malick!

I know! How does she get it like that??

Yup, takes place in the 70s.

I think this project might be a her big test. She hasn't delivered since her break and the recent let downs have hurt her credibility, but this looks quite intriguing and has a great cast so it might put her back in the spotlight.

I don't find her the greatest actress but I do believe there's more to her than what we've seen.
