Demi Moore 'Devastated' to Give Up 'Lovelace' Role, Says Producer

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- It wasn't easy for Demi Moore to step away from her role in an upcoming film based on the life of porn star Linda Lovelace.  She was "devastated" when she made the decision following her hospitalization last week, Lovelace producer Heidi Jo Markel tells People magazine.

Recalling that the producers felt "shock" and "concern" when they learned the news, Markel says, "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."

Moore had been cast as feminist Gloria Steinem.  She was replaced late last week by Sarah Jessica Parker.

Moore's rep has said the actress is battling exhaustion, though one of the people heard on the 911 call placed prior to the Ghost star's hospitalization said Moore had been "smoking something" and was experiencing "convulsions."  Moore reportedly left the hospital on Thursday.

Sarah Jessica Parker Replaces Demi Moore in 'Lovelace'

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Following her hospitalization last week, Demi Moore dropped out of a film based on the life of porn star Linda Lovelace.  She has since been replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker, who will fill the role of feminist Gloria Steinem, according to Entertainment Weekly.  Parker begins work on the film Monday.

The filmmakers behind Lovelace confirmed Parker's involvement just hours after Us Weekly reported -- erroneously, as it turned out -- that Weeds actress Mary-Louise Parker was taking over Moore's role.

Lovelace
will star Amanda Seyfried in the title role.
