Demi Moore was 'devastated' to lose 'Lovelace' role

Demi-Moore.jpgDemi Moore had to pull out of the film "Lovelace" because of her recent health/drug crisis. She's been replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker in the role of famous feminist Gloria Steinem in the movie about real-life porn actress Linda Lovelace. According to the producers, Moore cited a "personal crisis" as the reason for leaving the film.

According to People, Heidi Jo Markel, who is producing "Lovelace" with Jim Young and Laura Rister says the actress was "devastated" to lose her role. "It was a shock and a concern for all of us," she said. "We got a call from [Moore's representative] on Tuesday morning and said, 'There's been a personal crisis and we need to let you know that.' And we were clueless. We had no idea what it entailed. We just knew she was out, that there was probably a health concern, and to move on."

Moore's friend Patty Jenkins told the site, "I just saw her and she's doing great. I think she's doing much better than it's made out to be."Demi is awesome and so strong. I also hate when people make it a bigger drama than what is going on. She's great."
