"I'm grateful that she wants to do it so much, because of the subject matter - because she understands how important sex trafficking and forced prostitution is. Linda Marciano's story can happen to anyone. And that's my role, I believe, in the movie - to say that. So I'm very honoured that she wanted to do it." Feminist icon Gloria Steinem is thrilled she'll be portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker in new biopic Lovelace. Parker won the role after Demi Moore pulled out of the project and namesake actress Mary Louise Parker turned the part down. Amanda Seyfried will portray adult movie star-turned-anti-porn activist Linda Lovelace in the film. Lovelace became Linda Marciano when she turned her back on X-rated movies.
