The actress was going to cameo in the movie – which stars Amanda Seyfried as the legendary adult film star – as Gloria Steinem.
A replacement is being sought.
Meantime, Chloe Sevigny (a girl who knows more about adult films than most mainstream film actresses) has also joined the cast, playing a feminine journalist assigned to write a story about Lovelace.
The project reunites with Sevigny with her former “Big Love” co-star Seyfried (Robert Patrick also did some time on “Big Love”, and he has a role in the film too).
Peter Sarsgaard, Debi Mazar, Cory Hardrict, Adam Brody, Eric Roberts, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Wes Bentley, Sharon Stone and Juno Temple also star in the Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Freidman directed film.
