Demi Moore Devastated to Lose Lovelace Role

Demi MooreDemi Moore was "devastated" to lose her role in Lovelace.

The Hollywood actress - who has been replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker in the role of feminist Gloria Steinem in the movie about real-life porn actress Linda Lovelace - is said to have cited a "personal crisis" as to why she pulled out of the movie appearance after being hospitalized last week, according to the film's producers.

Heidi Jo Markel - who is producing the motion picture with Jim Young and Laura Rister - told People, "It was a shock and a concern for all of us. 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. We just knew she was out, that there was probably a health concern, and to move on."

Demi was rushed to the Sherman Oaks Hospital last Monday evening where she was treated for exhaustion after suffering a seizure at a birthday party she was hosting at her home. But her director friend Patty Jenkins says the brunette beauty is now recovering: "I just saw her and she's doing great. I think she's doing much better than it's made out to be. Demi is awesome and so strong. I also hate when people make it a bigger drama than what is going on. She's great."

Will About Last Night Get Another Night in Theaters?

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Sony, Drama, Comedy, Trailers, Videos,


About last night – any of you remember what happened? No? Then this piece of remake news might help jog your memory.

The 1986 entry that, in my opinion, surpassed St. Elmo’s Fire on the chart of Brat Pack-era films, could be hitting the big screen once again.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Screen Gems is toying with the idea of remaking About Last Night – a film about a couple who try to turn a one-night stand into a relationship.

Demi Moore on the message behind The Joneses

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, New Releases, Trailers,


‘s new movie The Joneses is about learning to balance love and money.

The 47-year-old actress admits the film - which stars Demi and as a seemingly perfect couple who attempt to sell the American dream to their neighbors - teaches people to make the most out of their lives.

“At the heart of it I do believe that the most important messages is that there’s anything wrong with our desire for nice things - things that are new, cutting edge, great car, great house, great job. It’s just that at the end of the day that cliché, of saying when we get to the end of our life nobody’s asking for another day of work. Nobody’s asking for that new Yves Saint Laurent bag,” she said.

“They’re going to say I wish I had another day with the people I love. I think at the heart of it that’s what it’s trying to communicate,” Moore added.

, which originally debuted at the Toronto Film Festival in 2009, hits theaters this Friday.

Oscar statues

When you throw in an extra host, add five more Best Picture nominees, take away the Best Song performances and nominate two formerly married directors—what do you get? A night that will surely be talked about.

Although many believe the will end with very few surprises, the possibility of an upset is still too great to ignore. Will the box office champ (Avatar) win Best Film as well? Or will The Hurt Locker - or even Inglourious Basterds - take the prize? Is Jeff Bridges a shoo-in for Best Actor…or could BAFTA winner Colin Firth sneak past him? Will Sandra Bullock have to deliver another acceptance speech, or will Meryl Streep take home her first Oscar since 1983?

To find out if the ceremony ends in a world of Hurt or Up in the Air, stay tuned here for the live results!

Baking Buff Rumer Willis

Rumer Willis and mother Demi MooreNewly turned 21-year-old Rumer Willis would much rather bide her time making pies than doing the Hollywood scene.

The Sorority Row actress, who is the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, can’t resist her cravings for sugary baked goods, so she spends her free time in the kitchen.

“I just don’t care about fame. I have better things to do—like making pies. I love making pies. It all started when I went on a road trip with my boyfriend. We stopped off at this diner and had this strawberry and rhubarb pie, and I thought, ‘This is incredible. I’m going to learn how to make it.’ So I did.”

Rumer is so accomplished at baking, she even treats Demi and her stepfather Ashton Kutcher to their favorite pies.

“My mom likes either pecan pie or German chocolate, and I just made a coconut banana cream pie for Ashton. He liked that very much. It was gone in a matter of three days.”
