Amanda Seyfried & Jessica Carpenter Grab Lunch in NYC

Enjoying some time out with one of her gal pals, Amanda Seyfried and actress, friend Jennifer Carpenter went out for lunch in New York City on Friday (July 26).

Seyfrieds fans will soon be seeing more of her literally. Next month she returns to the big screen with her starring role as 1970s adult film queen Linda Lovelace. Lovelace rose to fame in one of the best-known pornographic movies of all time: Deep Throat.

Talking about the racy role, Seyfried told press, It was a risky role to play, I suppose, but the nudity didnt scare me.

The upcoming role is a far cry from the ditzy, innocent, and/or virginal characters that the 27-year-old has become known for in flicks like Mean Girls, Mamma Mia, and Les Miserables.

Playing a sexually open woman changes perceptions, she said. It can be easy to get stuck doing certain kinds of nice girl or sweet girl parts.
