Wonder if she had the same sentiments when Demi Moore was playing her!
Gloria Steinam is speaking out about appearing in the Linda Lovelace biopic, Lovelace, as played by Sarah Jessica Parker, and the feminist theorist reveals that although she and the actress have chatted in person and over the phone, she doesn't care how she's portrayed - so long as the film's message gets across!
"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. And 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 honored that she wanted to do it. All I was thinking about was Linda. It didn't dawn on me that she was playing me. But she said she'd been watching interviews. I think that Sex and the City was one of the few pop cultural admissions that friendship among women is crucial and that has really continuing appeal."
And we're happy to hear that she's giving her blessing on project!
It only makes us more interested in checking it out!
How about U?
