Actress Amanda Seyfried, who is playing Linda Lovelace in a biopic, says the adult star had been forced to perform extreme sex acts under the threat of the barrel of her first husband's gun.
Lovelace, whose real name was Linda Boreman, was married to Chuck Traynor and he used to beat and exploit her.
Traynor died in 2002, three months after Lovelace passed away.
Seyfried, 27, said that she understands why some women are attracted to bad men like Traynor, reported Sun online.
"Unfortunately there's something attractive about someone who is broken, for me, and for a lot of women that I've spoken to. My best friend and I are attracted to creeps sometimes.
"They're interesting and mysterious and they provide us with this rush and this need to chase or fix just these needs they fill in yourself. It doesn't make any sense. It's a weird psychology but unfortunately it's the way the world works," she said.
The actress believes countries get too wound up about nakedness. But she thinks audiences and filmmakers are becoming more liberal in their attitudes towards sexual material.
"Sex in movies shouldn't be as big a deal as it is. Guns are huge in American cinema but with sex everybody is so prim about it here. Something is changing in American cinema.
We're going through some kind of sexual revolution right now, I'd like to think."
