‘Sex And The City’ star Sarah Jessica Parker says replacing Demi Moore in ‘Linda Lovelace’ was “daunting”.

Parker was approached to play feminist Gloria Steinem in the forthcoming biopic following Moore’s decision to check into rehab after suffering a seizure on January 27,reported

Showbiz spy.

But Parker,46,believes she might not have had the courage to join the movie which is based on the life of porn actress Linda Lovelace had she had more time to think.

“They explained the circumstances and asked if I would read the script quickly that there was a sense of urgency and I didn’t know at the time they were down to their last few days of shooting on the whole movie.

“So I read the script and I didn’t have the right amount of time to think about it properly. Had I,I probably would have said no because it was a daunting experience for lots of obvious and less obvious reasons,” Parker said.

The mother-of-three hopes she has managed to do justice

to the role in Moore’s absence.

“I can’t speak for the filmmakers,I don’t know if they were pleased,I hope they were. They were lovely and hospitable and I was very conscious of the circumstances so everybody was great and I hope I did right by the great Miss Steinem,” Parker added.
