The Word: Amanda Seyfried’s porn name is amazing

You know that game where you take the name of your first pet and the name of the street you grew up on, and that’s your porn name? Well, the game is over forever because Amanda Seyfried has won.

Seyfried, who plays real porn star Linda Lovelace in the new film “Lovelace,” told GQ her own porn name would be “Bad Pussy Washington.” Or possibly “Bad Pussy St. Cloud,” depending on which childhood street of Amanda’s you go with.

Obviously the street matters not at all. The amazing thing is that tiny Amanda had a cat named Bad Pussy, as though named specifically to dominate at this game. But she seemed to have a very liberated childhood: She says she first saw porn at age six. “It was the first time I’d ever seen a penis, and I remember it being very graphic, and I remember when he came: It was so terrifying.”

Well, at least she had Bad Pussy there to comfort her.

Amanda plays a porn star in “Lovelace,” and performed nude scenes accordingly. That doesn’t mean she’s as comfortable with nudity as a porn star would be, though — at least when it comes to her father seeing it. (Actually, porn stars probably aren’t comfortable with that either.) She found a solution at the screening, though: a sort of high-stakes game of peek-a-boo.

“I was sitting next to my dad and I had to cover his eyes,” she revealed to E! Online. “I have to be on guard because my boobs might pop out and I have to shield him.”
