Sarah Jessica Parker has been tapped to replace Demi Moore in the film “Lovelace.”
Moore dropped out of the project to get help for what her rep described as “exhaustion” after her hospitalization last week.
Parker will play the small but pivotal role of feminist icon Gloria Steinem in the movie about the 1970s adult film star Linda Lovelace.
Earlier reports suggested that Mary Louise Parker was on board to take the role, but “Lovelace” producers confirmed that Sarah Jessica Parker will play Steinem in the film.
Filming on “Lovelace” began last month in Los Angeles. Amanda Seyfried has the title role.
