(Park City, Utah) Critically acclaimed actor, Peter Saarsgard, looked almost unrecognizable as he exited the LA Times studio at the Sundance Film Festival while promoting the controversial film, ‘Lovelace’, starting himself and Amanda Seyfried.
Peter Saarsgard recently revealed that playing the abusive husband of Linda Lovelace, Chuck Trainer, was extremely taxing on his well being and he had to think twice about doing the controversial role, he tells USA Today – “I kept dragging my feet. It took weeks to decide. And then it was tough the entire way. It was like every day I was going on the set, looking on the call sheet and I was doing something awful.”
It’s good to know that behind all that hair lies a big teddy bear that hasn’t shaved his bushy beard from a movie project because his youngest daughter only knows him as “a man with a beard” and he doesn’t want to traumatize her by shaving it off. What a good dad!
