S *arah Jessica Parker *'s portrayal of American feminist *Gloria Steinem *has been cut from *Amanda Seyfried *'s upcoming *Linda Lovelace *biopic.

The Sex and the City star signed on to Lovelace, about the porn icon who starred in 1972's Deep Throat, last year after *Demi Moore *dropped out of the film.

The drama, which stars Seyfried as the title character, is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah next week but viewers won't get to see Parker's performance since filmmakers decided to end Lovelace's story in 1980, four years before she met Steinem.

Director *Rob Epstein *told EW.com it was a tough decision to leave Parker's scenes on the editing room floor.
