Demi Moore Out, Chloë Sevigny In: Linda Lovelace Movie

Chloe Sevigny, Big LoveDemi Moore has left the cast of Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's Lovelace, a biopic about Deep Throat porn star-turned-anti-porn Born-Again Christian Linda Lovelace that began shooting in Los Angeles last December. But you lose one, you win one. Moore has exited just as Chloë Sevigny has joined the Lovelace ensemble.

According to Deadline.com, Moore, who was to have a small role as radical anti-porn feminist Gloria Steinem, exited Lovelace “because of the stresses in her life right now” that have forced her “to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health.” Also as per Deadline, Sevigny has joined Lovelace to play “a feminist journalist assigned to write a story about Lovelace.” Now, at this stage it remains unclear whether this “feminist journalist” is Steinem herself. Reports vary on the matter.

Sevigny is best known for three roles: her Oscar-nominated performance as Hilary Swank's lover in Kimberly Peirce's real-life inspired (and highly fictionalized) Boys Don't Cry; her Golden Globe-winning turn as a member of a, huh, extended Mormon family in the television series Big Love; and as the woman performing oral sex in Vincent Gallo's widely derided The Brown Bunny.

The Lovelace cast includes Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace, Peter Sarsgaard as her abusive husband Chuck Traynor, James Franco as Hugh Hefner, in addition to Eric Roberts, Hank Azaria, Adam Brody, Wes Bentley, Sharon Stone, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Debi Mazar, Cory Hardrict, and Juno Temple.
