From wide-eyed, love-stricken Cosette in "Les Miserables" to the uniquely talented porn star Linda Lovelace in "Lovelace," two very different sides to Amanda Seyfried will have been displayed within weeks of each other. But with the latter film gearing up for a Sundance Film Festival premiere, it looks like there have been some changes made on the way from the editing room to the screening room.

From wide-eyed, love-stricken Cosette in "Les Miserables" to the uniquely talented porn star Linda Lovelace in "Lovelace," two very different sides to Amanda Seyfried will have been displayed within weeks of each other. But with the latter film gearing up for a Sundance Film Festival premiere, it looks like there have been some changes made on the way from the editing room to the screening room.

Sarah Jessica Parker has seen her already small role cut from the film. As you'll recall, almost exactly a year ago, the actress stepped in to replace the previously cast Demi Moore in the role of iconic feminist, Gloria Steinem. But as "Lovelace" writers and directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman ("Howl") tell Entertainment Weekly, the decision had nothing to do with her work, but with the focus of the movie. Originally, the plan was to cover Lovelace's history through to 1984, when she became an anti-porn crusader, but the helmers decided that their picture worked better if they wrapped things up in 1980 instead.

Though the part is small, one wonders about removing a feminist from a movie about a porn star, particularly given her modest invovlement. Steinem penned the article "The Real Linda Lovelace" which took Lovelace's husband, Chuck Traynor, to task for the stories he was spreading around about the sexual appetites of his wife. Steinem also wrote the introduction to Lovelace's memoir, "Out Of Bondage," in which she claimed she was essentially raped while filming "Deep Throat." The feminist also appeared at the press conference for Lovelace's first book, "Ordeal."

Nevertheless, the movie is definitely one of the hot tickets of the fest. A new, provocative image from the movie appears above. No distributor yet, but keep your ear to the ground.
