London: `Les Miserables` star Amanda Seyfried says she finds independent films more `interesting` than studio films and hopes to produce a movie.

The 27-year-old actress is hoping a transition from being in front of the screen to behind it after getting a taste of producing on `Lovelace`, a biopic in which she plays porn star, Linda Lovelace, reported Contactmusic.

"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," Seyfried said.

"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."

The blonde beauty feels that `Lovelace` was a shift in her career.

"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."
