Sarah Jessica Parker stepped in at the last minute to play Gloria Steinem in "Lovelace," but her work didn't make it into the film.
According to Entertainment Weekly, directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman were originally planning to end their biopic of adult actress Linda Lovelace in 1984, which would've included scenes of Lovelace after she'd gone back to using her real name and had taken a stand against porn, becoming affiliated with Steinem.
Demi Moore was first cast as the feminist icon, but she dropped out of the role last year when she sought treatment for "exhaustion and [to] improve her overall health." SJP then quickly took on the role, a move the directors called "very gracious."
But after deciding it would be better to end the movie in 1980, Steinem's scenes were among those cut out of the film.
Amanda Seyfried, who stars as Linda Lovelace in the biopic, previously said that both actresses did a fine job.
Moore, she told CNN last February, "worked so hard and she was the perfect Gloria. Things just don't work out the way you want them to ... It sucked but Sarah Jessica Parker was so awesome. Oh my God, I couldn't believe it. I mean, I know she felt bad, she felt really bad, too. And she was really nervous. Gloria Steinem's an icon. [But] she filled her shoes really well."
"Lovelace" debuts at the Sundance Film Festival, which starts today.
never leave sarah's sight–wait until i tell you what else..in person kay
don't give her any blogging business...
personal touch is much better anway....
And to think, Mathew Broderick came this close to finally nailing a p0rn star, or at least someone pretending to be one for the first time. If you dont count John Travoltra that is
CNNlicks; You know, a lot of people less racist than you might have missed the fact that there were four whole jewish people involved in the making of this film. Too bad about your...well, you know.
i would love to see the series..
enjoy it...but i would like to see mathew's show....
" Things just don't work out the way you want them to ... It sucked "
Isnt the remake of p0rn, still p0rn?
As peter griffin once said 'they let sarah jessica parker on tv and she looks like a foot'
I'm sorry I don't mind a bit of SJP but those jokes nearly made me wet myself at work!
she is gross...your right.
Why Sarah Jessica Parker won't be in Lovelace.
Because she is too hideous to be on a big movie screen.
Wow, the stupidity here is astounding. All the "horse" jokes...how creative (about 10 years ago, when they started). Your originality is severely lacking. Idiots. Ms Parker had already accomplished more by the age of 21 than any of you will in your entire lifetime. Suck on that...LOL!
I smell a hypocrite.
While you blast the "horse jokers" for making their jokes which you call 10 years old... maybe you should stop using the "celebrities are better than normal people" routine which is over 10 years old. If you truly think that every single person who has made it big deserved it, then you are truly delusional. " has done more in one year than you've done in a lifetime." Well that depends... compare the resources the rich celebrity has to the average person. Yeah, I'd love to donate $20 million to a charity... if I HAD IT. We're talking Sarah Jessica Parker here, not Mother Teresa.
Snoopy, just S T F U.
Go back to your doghouse.
Im sorry snoopy, are we not allowed to have some fun on a cnn msg board? Get a life!
Why is this actress so popular?
That's because she's a horse. Not many horses leave the farm. She not only left the farm but went on to star in an incredibly trashy and pathetic TV series with a bunch of other saggy has-beens and has starred in some forgettable movies.
I ATE HORSE POOP ONCE. TASTED LIKE ARBY'S.
Did it have any horsey sauce on it?
I like cookies.
Sarah Jessica PArker looks like a horse
her hair is pretty.
I just love your teeth, sarah. May I ask,who's your dental vet?
Not to mention the fact that she is a horrible actor.
iIntroducing our newest ski sloper the SJP ...wow and I thought Barbra had a nose.
So this horse goes into a bar and the bartender says " Why the long face " ?

Epstein and Friedman directing Sarah (Horse) Parker playing Steinem. Can we get anymore Jewish here?
They should put her back into the movie! How dare they discriminate against horses!
Get back on your meds please.....thank you.
Speaking from experience?
Nice! I hope for a torrent of stink nuggets to rain down upon her head.
Its not the hair thats the problem. Its whats its sitting on.
I prefer a chicken pot pie for dinner afterwards. But that's just me.

I applaud you... finally someone spells the L word correctly!!! You, sir... have won the internets.
