(LOS ANGELES) — Pink’s new album The Truth About Love will hit stores Sept. 18, but some fans will get to see her very first movie 10 days before that. The movie, Thanks for Sharing, will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 8.
The movie, in which Pink is billed under her birth name, Alecia Moore, is described as a “comedy drama” about a group of people who join a support group for sex addicts. Pink plays Dede, one of those sex addicts, who starts a relationship with Neil, another member of the group, played by Josh Gad. The movie also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo and Tim Robbins. The festival’s programmer describes Pink’s performance as “charming.”
Earlier this year, Pink told Cosmopolitan magazine that while making the movie, she was intimidated by Gwyneth Paltrow on set, but was able to get through her big movie debut because she totally understood her character. “It’s not like I was playing the girl next door; she’s a sex addict,” Pink says of Dede. “I was on lots of drugs as a teenager and had friends die of overdoses, so addiction isn’t a foreign concept. I get that.”
