SJP Talks About Taking On Demi Moore’s “Daunting” Lovelace Role

|

Sarah Jessica Parker snapped up Demi Moore‘s role in Lovelace pretty soon after Moore had to withdrawal from the film following her alleged drug-related emergency. Looking back…it might have been a little too quick for SJP. “I didn’t know at the time that they were down to their last few days of shooting on the whole movie,” Parker told Entertainment Tonight at last night’s amfAR Gala in New York. “I read the script and didn’t have enough time to think about it properly. [If I had,] I probably would have said no, because it was a daunting experience for lots of obvious and less obvious reasons.” Such as? Come on, Sarah. You cannot leave us hanging like this!

If you recall, there were only two whirlwind days between Demi’s decision to drop out of filming and Sarah landing the part, during which the rumor mill also volleyed names like Mary Louise Parker and Chloe Sevigny as possible replacement Gloria Steinems. Based on the photos snapped on-set of Parker’s famous feminist, she at least looks the part. If we’re basing our assessment solely on her wig (and we are), we’d say SJP’s professional reputation has nothing to worry about.
