Debi Mazar’s Kids Kept Her From Watching Deep Throat

Lovelace's Debi Mazar has not yet seen all of Deep Throat, the Linda Lovelace porn around which the new biopic is centered (and in which her character, Dolly Sharp, co-starred). But unlike Sharon Stone, she wanted to see it. "I was going to get the film, and every time I was about to order it, I got interrupted by my kids,” she told us at the Cinema Society screening last night. “Every time I was trying to do research on my character: ‘Mommy! What are you watching?’” Making the project even more of a family affair: Mazar's husband was actually in Lovelace, in a scene in which Dolly is receiving oral sex while having a casual conversation. “I got to use my husband,” said Mazar. “It’s his movie debut. At least while I’m delivering my lines, I know it’s my husband there. We got to practice at home the night before. So yeah, I was well prepared. His mother was proud.”
