Amanda Seyfried: I like creeps

Amanda Seyfried says “broken” guys can be “attractive”.

Amanda Seyfried is sometimes attracted to “creeps”.

The stunning Hollywood actress plays adult movie star Linda Lovelace in the new film Lovelace. Linda famously starred in the shocking 1972 movie Deep Throat and later claimed she had suffered abuse at the hands of her husband Chuck Traynor.

Amanda, who previously dated her Mamma Mia! co-star Dominic Cooper, understands why some women are drawn to the wrong guys.

“Unfortunately there’s something attractive about someone who is broken, for me, and for a lot of women that I’ve spoken to. My best friend and I are attracted to creeps - sometimes,” she said in an interview with British newspaper The Sun. “They’re interesting and mysterious and they provide us with this rush and this need to chase or fix - just these needs they fill in yourself.

“It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a weird psychology but unfortunately it’s the way the world works.”

Amanda’s latest role is a departure from her previous films. Lovelace contains a series of sex scenes and required the 27-year-old star to appear nude.

Amanda doesn’t understand why the subject of sex on the big screen is still considered risqué.

“Sex in movies shouldn’t be as big a deal as it is. Guns are huge in American cinema but with sex everybody is so prim about it here. Something is changing in American cinema,” she argued. “We’re going through some kind of sexual revolution right now, I’d like to think.”

Amanda had a great time making Lovelace, revealing she found the process of shooting musical blockbuster Les Misérables much tougher. The cast were required to sing live during scenes and the actress had to make sure she kept her voice in top condition.

“It was exhausting trying to keep your voice protected,” she recalled. “It’s difficult because we’re very fragile and that was mainly the reason it was so tough.”

well, the short version is that she gives a way for selfish assholes to rationalize their selfish assholishness haha. her concept of the ubermensch is just so eyeroll-inducing.

(and she's shit from a pure writing perspective too. like, there's absolutely NO justification for putting in a 60-page speech other than gross self-indulgence lbr.)

Ok I can get where you're coming from, from what I read (in summary lol) about her work she def puts the "self" and individual before the grater good, advocating a selfish mindset

I've heard things about her work but never studied her so I don't have much of an opinion

Ngl I liked a lot of her quotes, from what I saw, they all seemed very much about building self worth and uplifting an individual. but little quotes never give a persona good idea of what a philosopher or writer is really going on about, so I could see Amanda seeing a quote of hers, only having a basic understanding of who she is and retweeting it, just agreeing w the quote itself

plz? don't base your opinion off someone solely because they have some nice sounding quotes. i'm sure mussolini and mobutu had some really moving quotes if you feel the need to check those assholes out.

she was a terrible woman who disposed all homeless, spoke in favor for eugenics, hated anyone who took any money from the government, period, need money for food? well why dont you bootstrap yourself some bread you vagrant. even though she hide the fact that she took welfare + social security from the public until the day she died, she was a shitty writer with shitty inconsistent and naive views. it's hard to make a short list of all the things that make her a horrible person, but pretty much libertarians idolize her because she pushes the 'fuck you, got mine' way of living to the extreme.

I JUST said I have no opinion on her because I've never studied her or read her work, so no, I'm not basing my opinion on her on some nice sounding quotes

So no need to get snarky and on your high horse

I only meant I went on some website and some of the quotes, obviously taken out of context sound more about uplifting the individual and not about whatever she was prob going on about...so somebody sees that quote retweets it on twitter not thinking anything of it, and boom, ppl think she's a Ayn Rand supporter

the thing about her work is that it sounds really great and empowering on the surface because it's all about self worth and furthering your own success. but her philosophy is flawed because it assumes that's how humanity is run and that's how humans should conduct their lives. it's simplistic in the worst way and doesn't really work practically at all.

she basically wants to rid the world of goodwill and that's not an exaggeration of her belief system.

Ahhhhhhhh I can definitely see why ppl call her the devil on here then lol

It's the worst when people hide a negative viewpoint and philosophy behind positive sounding propaganda

I was reading more about her and I can really see what your talking about, and why so many conservatives would rally behind her work :-/
