According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 49-year-old actress will have a cameo in the film about porn star Linda Lovelace, who appeared in the 1972 adult movie "Deep Throat."

Steinem, the founder of Ms. magazine, criticized adult entertainment and wrote the 1972 profile, "The Real Linda Lovelace," in which she detailed how Lovelace was forced into the industry.

Amanda Seyfried will play the title role in "Lovelace," while Eric Roberts will portray a lie-detector expert, and Adam Brody will star as "Deep Throat" male lead Harry Reems.

"Lovelace," which is currently filming in Los Angeles, will also feature Sharon Stone, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Robert Patrick, Bobby Cannavale and Chris Noth.

Moore has been keeping somewhat of a low profile since splitting with Ashton Kutcher in the fall. This year, she'll appear in the comedy, "LOL," co-starring Miley Cyrus and Ashley Greene.
