But wasn't Kate Hudson attached to the project first?
Not according to the directors! Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman say there was only one actress who could her head get completely around the part. Epstein says:
"We love Kate Hudson, but she just wasn't right for Lovelace."
According to the Epstein, Amanda was perfect as she was looking for something "that would push her own boundaries."
The directors say they never went past the meeting stages with Kate, who was pregnant with little Bingham when the film was casting.
Sounds like she had found something else to push her own boundaries! LOLz!
