The sultry actress reveals why she turned down the role of Linda Lovelace.

We applaud Olivia Wilde, 27, star of films like Tron: Legacy and Cowboys & Aliens and awesome shows like House and The O.C. (remember that one?). According to E! Online, the Hollywood hottie is not doing the biopic about Linda Lovelace, a famous porn star from the 70s known for her appearance in the adult film, Deep Throat.

On Tuesday night, Wilde revealed her decision at the Glamour Reel Moments event in West Hollywood, where she was making her directorial debut with a short film called Free Hugs. She told E! Online, "I'm not doing that one, no," when asked about the Lovelace project. Olivia Wilde Splits From Her Italian-Prince Husband

She mentioned the reasons for backing out included scheduling conflicts and deciding that the role wasn't what she was looking for. This is quite a change of tune, since she said of the opportunity back in July, "It's such a cool role. (Lovelace) was a fascinating woman—with where she came from to Deep Throat to then working with Gloria Steinem and Nora Ephron. It's really fascinating." 

Now, Kate Hudson is a rumored choice for the role, possibly co-starring with James Franco (we just loved him on General Hospital!). So, not to worry—there are plenty of star lights that will shine in this racy flick. We can't wait to see it!

We wish Wilde well with her new found directing passion and whatever projects she does decide to do in the future. Olivia Wilde: Post-Divorce Dating Is Like 'Entering A Shark Pool'
