Actress Amanda Seyfried has said that pornography must not be banned as people should be granted the freedom to watch whatever they want to. The 27-year-old actress, who essays the 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace in her latest movie, Lovelace, doesn't feel that adult movies and clips are anything to be ashamed of, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"You can't put a ban on it. I mean, kids under age are still drinking. It just makes it that much more powerful. It's freedom... You should be free to watch it whenever you want," the actress told Bang Showbiz at a special screening of the movie Monday at the Mayfair Hotel here.

The, Les Miserables star, however, admitted that she doesn't enjoy porn herself. "I've watched porn, yes. Enjoyed? No. I saw some when I was six. It was really disturbing. There was a policeman... I was at my friend's house and their parents weren't around and the older brother, who, I think was 10 at the time, puts this on and I was just blown away," Seyfried said.
