Adam Brody “regrets” not having more time to grow his film moustache.
The actor is playing porn star Harry Reems in Lovelace, which also stars Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard.
Adam’s character plays Linda Lovelace’s co-star in adult movie Deep Throat, and the former The O.C. star had to grow facial hair ahead of his role.
“I loved it. My only regret was that I didn’t have more time to grow it. If you see pictures of Harry’s real ‘tache, it was probably twice the size of mine,” he joked in an interview with UK magazine Heat.
“I grew mine for about a month, but I don’t think I could ever have reached his stage.”
Real-life porn star Linda became the world’s first erotic superstar after starring in the 1972 movie, and the film follows her story, including her relationship with abusive husband Chuck Traynor.
Adam says Amanda “nailed” the role, before jokingly adding what research he did ahead of the shoot.
“A lot of steamy nights by myself,” he laughed. “I watched the Deep Throat movie – it’s goofier than you’d believe – but I was surprised at how graphic and modern the sexual gymnastics were.”
Adam also explained he wasn’t too bothered about the nudity involved in the film.
“As a guy you’re fairly safe, as you’re never going to be made to show full frontal. Not that I really want to show my butt, but then again who cares? And if I had to, that’s fine,” he said.
“But with a girl it’s a much more specific conversation.”
