Red carpet chatter focused on Pink at the premiere of “Thanks for Sharing” on Sept. 16.

Josh Gad and Tim Robbins were among the film’s stars who praised Alecia Moore’s (better known by her stage name Pink) acting debut during the film’s preem at ArcLight Hollywood. The dramedy, which also stars Mark Ruffalo (who didn’t attend the Los Angeles premiere), Gwyneth Paltrow, and Patrick Fugit, follows a group of addicts who depend on each other to overcome their sex dependencies.

“I’m not an actress; I’m just here,” Moore said modestly. “It’s just new, you know? I’m with people that are at the top of their game and it was awesome to get to watch.”

However, her costars didn’t let her get the last word in.

“I think she is an actress, no matter what she says,” Robbins said. “She’s really good, really good!”

In fact, Gad, who starred opposite Moore in the bulk of her scenes, said the songstress-turned-actress’ raw talent left the cast in awe.

“She showed up the first day and she’s like, ‘You know guys, I’m sorry. I don’t want to hold people back. I’m new to this whole thing,’” Gad recalled. “And then, all of a sudden the cameras roll and it was like we were in “Sophie’s Choice.” Like it was the most amazing acting I’ve ever seen. I looked over at Tim and Mark Ruffalo [and said], ‘We’re dead. She’s going to steal the whole movie from us.’”

The movie delves into the timely topic of sex addiction, which is also explored in Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s upcoming film “Don Jon” and in 2011’s “Shame,” starring Michael Fassbender. Moore said “Thanks for Sharing” stands out from the other flicks because of its comedic and light-hearted approach to the serious issue.

“I think in the universe things just happen like that,” Moore said. “It’s like, why’d you put out an album called “Funhouse” and then three months later, Britney [Spears ] puts out “Circus”? I don’t know. It just happens this way. This one’s different though. I am a firm believer that a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down.”

Moore said the film helps counter the misconception that sex addiction isn’t a legitimate disease.

“I know a lot about addiction,” she said. “I’ve lost a lot of people in my life and had some interesting experiences myself. I believe that all addiction comes from the same monster, it just wears different masks.”

The stars later made their way to Hollywood’s Aventine bar where they rubbed elbows with the likes of Rebecca Romijn, Tony Shalhoub, Russell Simmons, and Peter Gallagher.

    This isn’t Pink’s acting debut. She was in a movie a while back about something hunting some folks in a sewer in Paris. Though perhaps the fact that the movie was generally forgettable contributes to the fact that everyone claims that this is Moore’s acting “debut”.

  4. P!nk is amazing. I love how humble she was when she showed up on set. – Not the usual diva you’d expect.
