Cory Hardrict got a sexy striptease from his wife, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, on a recent episode of Tia & Tamera, but things are about to heat up even more for Cory. He has a large part in the new film, Lovelace, based on the 1970’s porno, Deep Throat. Yeah, we know. Kind of a huge deal.

And we chatted with the star about playing a real person in the film, working with Amanda Seyfried, and his favorite 90’s show (other than Sister, Sister, of course. Sorry, Tia!). Read on!


OK!: Congrats on the movie! How did you approach playing a real person vs playing a made up character?
Cory Hardrict: Thank you very much! It is truly a blessing. I approached the character from the standpoint of staying true to the reality of Frankie instead of trying to mimic his voice and just copying everything I researched about him….it was just about bringing his soul to life.

OK!: The ensemble cast in this film is incredible. Who were you the most starstruck/excited to meet?
CH: I must say the whole cast was incredible to work with. I was very excited to meet Amanda Seyfried. She is one of the most humbling human beings you will ever meet. She deserves success.


OK!: In this film you have stars from 90’s shows like Friends, Sex and the City, and The OC. What’s your favorite 90’s show and why (aside from Sister Sister)?
CH: I have to say Martin. Martin Lawrence had no filter, and to me that was the greatest half hour of all time. Martin was ahead of his time.

OK!: Lindsay Lohan was originally cast as Lovelace in a different Lovelace biopic. How do you think she would’ve played the role differently than Amanda did? CH: Lindsay Lohan is a great actress, just comparing apples and oranges. I’m sure she would have been wonderful as well, but Amanda embodied the character. I can’t wait for the world to see her performance.


OK!: You play a radio DJ in the film. If you were a present day DJ, what kind of music would you be playing and listening to?
CH: I would play some Chicago house music because you will have no choice but to dance. It takes it back to the days when you leave the party drenched!

OK!: Are there any other real people who you would love to play on screen? Who do you think needs a biopic about their life that doesn’t have one yet?
CH: I would love to play the President of the United States. I have been told we resemble each other, and it would be a challenge I would be up for. Obama is from the south side of Chitown and so am I..I’m just saying, but be on the lookout.
