Sarah Jessica Parker made a spur of the moment decision to accept a role in the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic and "probably would have said no" if she had more time to consider the offer.
The star was contacted by movie chiefs last month about tackling the part of Gloria Steinem in "Lovelace" after Demi Moore pulled out following her hospitalisation for exhaustion.
Parker was given the script to look through, but film executives needed her answer fast and the actress said yes before she could deliberate the implications of playing the feminist icon.
She tells Entertainment Tonight, "I read the script and didn't have enough time to think about it properly. (If I had), I probably would have said no, because it was a daunting experience for lots of obvious and less obvious reasons."
