Sarah Jessica Parker In 'Lovelace': Actress Replaces Demi Moore As Gloria Steinem
It looks like Us Weekly had the wrong Parker. According to "Lovelace" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Sarah Jessica Parker -- and not Mary-Louise Parker -- will replace Demi Moore in their new film about porn star Linda Lovelace. She'll play journalist and Ms. magazine co-founder Gloria Steinem.
Moore joined the project on Jan. 2, but was forced to drop out this week after being checked into the hospital for what her representatives called "exhaustion." On Friday, the 9-1-1 call from Moore's house was released, an unsettling ten minutes that revealed -- per Moore's friends on the call -- the actress suffered convulsions after apparently smoking something similar to incense.
Sarah Jessica Parker was last seen onscreen in the omnibus romcom "New Year's Eve." She joins a "Lovelace" cast that already includes Amanda Seyfried as the titular porn star, Peter Sarsgaard as her abusive ex-husband, James Franco (in a cameo as Hugh Hefner) and Adam Brody as Lovelace's "Deep Throat" co-star Harry Reems.
