Young actress Millie Bobby Brown dreams of stepping into Britney Spears' shoes by playing the star in a biopic. The main character is obviously not thrilled with the idea.
She's alive, no one will play her. Britney Spears has decided that there will be no biopic about her, despite the fact that Millie Bobby Brown was already thinking about it. In the space of forty-eight hours, anything was possible. On Tuesday, during the Drew Barrymore Show, the 18-year-old actress, star of Stranger Things and Enola Holmes, confided her dream of slipping into the skin of the pop star if a biopic project was born: "I want to play a real person. And I think for me it would be Britney, Britney Spears. Above all, I think her story resonates with who I am."
Confronting Drew Barrymore, Millie Bobby Brown explains this parallel: "I'm growing up in the public eye, watching her videos, watching her interviews to see how she acted when she was younger […] I don't know her, but when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way, in her way only."
"Guys, I'm not dead!"
Confession of an intimate dream or a real shot across the bow of production studios and Britney Spears herself? Either way, the answer is no. As usual since the end of her guardianship, the star expressed herself on Instagram, with a lot of enigmatic photos and evocative smileys. "I've heard that people want to make movies about my life… Guys, I'm not dead!"
The opportunity for Britney Spears to return to the conflict between her and her family: "Good news, good news!!! I'm still breathing … it's funny, the same two people who gave me life are the same two people who took it away from me … but guess what!!! I'm alive and breathing again!!!" So there is no question of depriving her of this fresh air by locking her up again in the gaze of a camera and the telling of a story that is not her own.
