LOS ANGELES, Jan. 16 (UPI) — Sarah Jessica Parker’s portrayal of U.S. feminist trailblazer Gloria Steinem has been cut from the porn-themed film “Lovelace,” its co-directors told EW.com.
“Mamma Mia!” and “Les Miserables” actress Amanda Seyfried plays porn star Linda Lovelace in the film.
The movie’s co-directors — Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman — told EW.com they initially planned to end the movie after Lovelace quits the adult film business, befriends Steinem and becomes an anti-pornography activist, but instead the filmmakers decided to wrap the bio-picture earlier, meaning Parker’s part was left on the editing room floor.
“You never want to make that call,” Friedman told EW.com.
“But she was a pro,” Epstein said of Parker, who replaced Demi Moore, who dropped out of the production due to unspecified health issues.
