Demi Moore is pulling out of the Linda Lovelace biopic Lovelace, her rep confirmed to EW today. Moore was slated to play women’s rights activist Gloria Steinem in the film. Earlier this afternoon, Moore reportedly entered a facility to recover from exhaustion after being rushed to the hospital Monday night.

It was announced that Moore would join the cast, which includes Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody, and Sharon Stone, earlier this month. The Rob Epstein and Jerry Friedman-directed Lovelace, which follows the life of Deep Throat star and 1970s icon Linda Lovelace, began shooting in December.

Anthony Breznican contributed to this report.
