Demi Moore was slated to portray Gloria Steinem in the Linda Lovelace biopic, "Lovelace," but it seems that's no longer a go. A rep for the 49-year-old actress tells CNN that she is not working on the film.
Moore's rep adds that the actress, who recently separated from her husband of six years, Ashton Kutcher, has been dealing with stress.
As a result, "Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."
On Tuesday, reports circulated that Moore had been rushed to the hospital on Monday night, with TMZ citing anonymous sources who allege the issue was substance abuse. Moore's rep did not have a comment on those allegations.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed to CNN that the department did respond to a 911 call from Oak Pass Road, a street on which the actress lives, at 10:49 p.m. for an unknown illness.
However, the spokesman added that he was not allowed to identify the patient, whom he says was transported at 11:21 p.m. to a local hospital.
