Actress Julianna Margulies passed on playing a lesbian in the film Cherry, which co-stars James Franco and Heather Graham and is based on a script written by Stephen Elliot and former porn star Lorelei Lee.

The 44-year-old star of CBS' The Good Wife talked about movie scripts she had been offered during a The Hollywood Reporter drama actress roundtable with Kelly Macdonald, Christina Hendricks, Melissa Leo, Regina King, Katey Sagal and Connie Britton.

Margulies, who has a 3-year-old son, at first said she “got offered a porn movie,” but then she explained it was a movie about porn.

“James Franco is doing it,” she said. “And because he's doing it, it's attracting all these people. I was like, ultimately I'm like a lesbian porn star going down on women. I can't, I have a child. That's what's being offered to me? I think I'll just keep my day job.”

“It wasn't that I was insulted by it,” she said. “I was actually incredibly thrilled by it.”

Margulies added she believes women are being offered better roles on television than films.
