Demi Moore to Play Feminist Gloria Steinem in Lovelace Biopic
Demi Moore has been cast as feminist Gloria Steinem in the upcoming film about “Deep Throat” star Linda Lovelace.
Moore, who filed for divorce from husband Ashton Kutcher in November last year, will act alongside Amanda Seyfried, who will play Lovelace. “Lovelace” is one of two upcoming biopics about the famous adult star who played the main role in what is perhaps the most popular pornographic film of all time. The other film about Lovelace is “Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story,” whose star was originally Lindsay Lohan before her legal troubles set in. Malin Ackerman has now been cast in the title role.
“Lovelace” boasts of an all-star cast that includes James Franco as Hugh Hefner, Peter Sarsgaard as Lovelace’s husband, Chuck Traynor, and Hank Azaria as “Deep Throat” director Jerry Damiano. The ensemble cast also includes Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Eric Roberts, and Chris Noth, among others.
Steinem is an important character in the movie as it was the feminist and journalist who wrote a profile of Lovelace in Ms. Magazine, where she claimed that the “Deep Throat” star was coerced and physically abused to force her to become a porn actress.
