Olivia Wilde Wants to Play Porn Star Linda Lovelace

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on July 29, 2011 0 Comments

Olivia Wilde is considering starring in a third movie about porn star Linda Lovelace.

The real-life Deep Throat character has become almost as popular as the fictional character Snow White, with Kristen Stewart and Lily Collins causing quite a stir by starring in competing fairytale films featuring the princess. However, Olivia’s movie has a little more competition.

The Cowboys & Aliens actress would be joining Malin Akerman, who filled in for Lindsay Lohan when she left the movie Inferno, and Kate Hudson, whose biopic will begin shooting later this year. The project Olivia would be joining is titled Lovelace. But would Wilde be able to take on such a racy role?

Olivia WildeWell, she’s shot partial nude scenes in Cowboys & Aliens and The Change-Up, but Lovelace might require her to show a little more skin than she’s comfortable with. Getting nude for the role might be worth it to Olivia Wilde, however, because she did have this to say about the project: “It would be a tremendous honor. It’s such a cool role. She was a fascinating woman – with where she came from to Deep Throat to then working with Gloria Steinem and (filmmaker) Nora Ephron. It’s really fascinating.”

The actress says that she’s not completely sure she’s going to go after the role just yet, but it would definitely be something different for her. Olivia Wilde has done a lot of sci-fi movies lately, including Tron: Legacy, In Time, and Cowboys & Aliens, so perhaps she would like to try her hand at a few dramas (after all, she did become a star on the serious medical series House).

Linda Lovelace really would be an intriguing character to play (and perhaps such a part would be worthy of an Oscar nomination). She’s become known as one of the world’s first major porn stars through her role in Deep Throat, but she later denounced pornography and said that she was forced into shooting the movie by her husband.

So what do you think — should Olivia Wilde make such a wild career move?
