Imagine my shock to read Sean Mitchell's article on actress Julianne Moore ("Not Strictly Naked Ambition," Sept. 28) and her performance in the upcoming R-rated "Boogie Nights," where he states that Moore's role as a porn star in the film ". . . involves hard-core scenes in which she has sex on camera with Mark Wahlberg." Really! So Moore and Wahlberg, possibly in an effort to add unheard-of realism to their parts, didn't simply simulate the act but actually engaged in it, right there in front of the crew?
