Amanda Seyfried Covers ELLE, August 2013Carter Smith/ELLE

Amanda Seyfried's sexiest and most daring film to date -- "Lovelace," the biopic about the eponymous "Deep Throat" porn star -- hits theaters next month, and the 27-year-old actress is thrilled she overcame any initial trepidation about taking on the role of Linda Lovelace.

"I read the script and I was like, 'Wow, this is the riskiest thing that's happening [in Hollywood] right now,'" the ELLE cover girl recalls in an interview for the magazine's August 2013 issue. "The first thing you think about is that it could have ruined my career. At the same time, I was like, 'This is my chance to show them, to show the industry, to be recognized.'"

Perhaps emboldened by her turn as a XXX icon, Seyfried also speaks frankly about her love life. "Everybody I've dated I've been sexually attracted to immediately," she admits. "Sparks don't grow -- your vagina doesn't become more inclined to wanting someone just because you're around them."

Seyfried, who's dated/been sexually attracted to the famous likes of Dominic Cooper, Ryan Phillippe, Josh Hartnett, and Desmond Harrington, is currently crushing on a man we may never have heard of. "[He's] someone separate from my industry life -- I've known him since he was 16," she reveals. "I picture him as the father of my children all the time. But it is a fantasy right now."

"Fantasy" will take on a whole new meaning when "Lovelace" opens August 9.
