Adam Brody compares celebs to porn stars

Adam Brody

Adam Brody believes some celebrities start out “as porn stars”.

The actor stars in Lovelace, which follows the life of Linda Lovelace, who became the world’s first erotic superstar after starring in 1972 movie Deep Throat.

Adam discussed how attitudes towards pornography have changed over the years.

“Nowadays you’ve got celebrities who essentially start out as porn stars. It might be with their boyfriends – but that’s essentially their big break – there isn’t that stigma and maybe there shouldn’t be,” he told the UK edition of Cosmopolitan magazine. “But I can’t imagine [porn] is that healthy psychologically for those involved.”

Adam plays a porn actor in the film, and his part brings a touch of humor to an otherwise tragic story. Linda later went on to denounce her movie career, admitting she was forced into it by her then husband, and became a spokeswoman for the anti-pornography movement. Adam says the violence Linda suffered is more painful to watch than the porn.

“The domestic violence we see in the movie is a million times more destructive than the porn. It is really sad,” he reflected.

“I’m not in favor of making the entire thing illegal; that seems harsh, but I don’t know what the answer is either.”

Adam stars alongside Amanda Seyfried in the biopic. He recently revealed who he’d most like to work with one day.

“Bill Murray [is my dream co-star]; I’d love to play his son,” he told UK InStyle.

“I did [do my own stunts in Lovelace], but it’s an R-rated movie, so they weren’t that extensive. They mostly involved facial expressions.”
