I guess people who are huge supporters of Hugh Heffner and the movies Flashdance and Coyote Ugly as well as the television series the Playboy Club might enjoy watching the film biography Lovelace. However, everybody else might cringe at the mere mention of the film. I can imagine the conversation between Amanda Seyfried and her agent.
Amanda Seyfried: Ok, what films do you have for me to audition for?
Film Agent: Well, you can play the rigid, inflexible wife who is never any fun to hang around with who only warms up when the football team wins the Superbowl. You can play some dude's crazed, lunatic girlfriend from heck who is never any fun to hang around with. Or you can play a prostitute stripper with a heart of gold who dies in a convenient car wreck when she starts an anti-pornography crusade against the pimp who employed and abused her. The prostitute stripper with a heart of gold is the only woman film role who is lots of fun to hang around with. Which means that lots and lots of men in Hollywood would rather hang out with hookers instead of hanging out with genuine actual women. Which film role do you want?
Amanda Seyfried: Well, I want to stay in that amazing mansion that I'm currently living in so I'll play the a prostitute stripper with a heart of gold who dies in a convenient car wreck when she starts an anti-pornography crusade against the pimp who employed and abused her. Such a shame there isn't any other film roles out there beyond those limited three.
Film Agent: Hey, this is Hollywood. That's the way it's always been and that's the way it always will be. You might as well learn to live with it.
