Les Miserables actress Amanda Seyfried hopes to become a movie producer and said she finds independent films more "interesting" than studio films.

The 27-year-old star is keen to get behind the camera after getting a taste of producing on Lovelace.

Speaking to WWD, Seyfried said: ''It's great to get your ideas heard and to have creative input, to be part of the process. At some point, I'd love to produce things that I don't necessarily have to be acting in.''

The Mamma Mia star further explained that she prefers working on independent films as they are much more interesting to make.

She added: ''Independent films are the ones I find most interesting right now. I like indulging in certain situations which I wouldn't normally be in. I like that idea, of playing somebody really lost or going through something impossible to understand, because that's a journey in itself. You come out of those experiences with a richer, broader view.''

''Lovelace felt like a big shift in my life and career. That culture is fascinating. I loved the idea of portraying her internal stuff and examining what was going on behind the scenes, that no one saw. Knowing that we were only telling her story made it a lot easier for me -- I had to respect her and be her voice.''
