Making women everywhere jealous, Malin had to shoot a few love scenes with Ryan for the flick.

“He’s a wonderful guy. We had such a great camaraderie and a great bond so it felt really comfortable." she explained to reporters. But no worries, Amanda Seyfried fans — there's nothing going on romantically. "Not as good as my husband!" Malin laughed.

The platinum blonde bombshell is gearing up to lead in the highly anticipated drama Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story. Malin will play the role of Linda Lovelace, a role that Lindsay Lohan was at first slated to play.


“I’m really excited to do the film. I think it’s going to be an amazing journey," Malin revealed. "It’s an exploration of a battered woman and her relationship with her husband, so I think it’s going to be incredibly challenging and amazing. I’m actually studying a lot about battered women. We all have that big question mark as to why they’d stay in a relationship. Why don’t they leave? And it’s so complex.”

How could anybody gear up for a role as complex as Linda Lovelace? Malin tells OK! she's been “reading a lot on the internet. Google is a fantastic thing!”
