When Amanda Seyfried isn’t rapping dressed as a frog, she is a very sexual being, and she’ll be the first to tell you.
The Les Mis star has opened up about sex, former lovers, and becoming Ms. Deepthroat herself, Linda Lovelace, in ELLE’s August issue, which she covers looking sultry as ever in a scarlet, glass-jeweled silk Dolce & Gabbana lace top and briefs. In the accompanying spread, she has a Givenchy moment that make our jaws drop, beds a cup of tea in leopard Simon Rocha coat, and wears a ton of Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane. But while the supreme fashion, styled by Joe Zee himself, is truly awe-inducing, it’s her quotes that already have people talking.
On accepting the title role of Lovelace:
“I read the script and I was like, ‘Wow, this is the riskiest thing that’s happening [in Hollywood] right now.’ The first thing you think about is that it could have ruined my career. At the same time, I was like, ‘This is my chance to show them, to show the industry, to be recognized.'”
On the need for physical attraction in a relationship:
“Everybody I’ve dated I’ve been sexually attracted to immediately. Sparks don’t grow—your vagina doesn’t become more inclined to wanting someone just because you’re around them.”
On her Mamma Mia co-star and ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper:
“We love each other… He’ll always be in my life regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think. I’m never going to be with a guy that can’t deal with my friendship with him.”
We truly feel as bad as one can feel for Cooper’s future sweethearts, because if we had to deal with a lingering ex that looks and talks like Seyfried, we’d be fraught with worry on the regular. View the entire spread below, and if you’re in the mood for some more Mandy, we’ve got you:
