SJP to fill Demi Moore's role in 'Lovelace'

Now that Demi Moore is focusing on recovery, the crew of "Lovelace" has made swift work of finding a replacement.

Moore, 49, was supposed to play Gloria Steinem in the project, one of the two biopics in the works about adult actress Linda Lovelace. But amid reports that she'd been rushed to the hospital last week, Moore's rep told CNN that she was pulling out of the project.

"Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," her rep said at the time. "She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."

In the meantime, "Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker will be taking Moore's place in the film, which is being directed by "Howl" duo Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.

Amanda Seyfried stars in the project as the titular adult film star, with James Franco portraying a younger version of Playboy titan Hugh Hefner and Adam Brody as adult actor Harry Reems. Production on the project is said to have kicked off in late December.

    No way I'll see this movie now. SJP is a horrible actress. My baby's toots are more amusing and entertaining than she is.

    i can't say which is more laughable, "treating her exhaustion" or sjp playing steinem...not that demi was a great choice either. i'll ask the question as well, "who's casting this crap!?

    They're going to replace a burned out wanna-be cougar with a used up actress that's been put out to pasture? Who's casting this carp?

    The people who are "jealous" of these celebrities are just as bad as the people who defend them.

    Before you defend these celebrities, realize that they're overpaid for mediocre material... intended for OUR enjoyment. If you want to trade places and be our guinea pigs of entertainment, go ahead. Make that money, no one will be jealous of that, sorry. There's always a price to pay for fortune and fame.

    I knew as soon as I read the headline that the horse jokes would follow. While I love my life and my looks, if I had to choose between looking like her and having her fame and fortune or trading places with yall, I'd pick her.

      It's not that simple, you simpleton.

      You do realize it's more than just existing... she worked her butt off to get where she is. If she didn't all she would be is a horse face with no talent. Some may argue she doesn't have talent, but that's another story. Think before you make such a stupid defensive comment.

    Wow, amazing amounts of jealousy here. Interesting how people sitting at home can cut other successful people down so badly.

    SJP will be better in my opinion because she is not the drama queen that Demi is. Also she looks more like Steinem.

    Horses have feelings, too guys. She was just tired of all those Budweiser commercials... speaking of which I think they fired her from those because she got too old to move around carrying all that weight.

    Oh this is bad. SJP is a disgusting horsefaced lesbean witch. I too had heard it was going to be MLP who would have been a good choice. Sarah Jessica will ruin this project like she has so many others.

    Earlier reports stated Mary Louise Parker was plying Steinem? In my opinion MLP is the better actress for the part, I've always thought of SJP as a one note actress and cant picture her has Steinem.
