Millie’s Interest in Playing Britney Spears
Millie Bobby Brown, best known for her role as Eleven in Stranger Things, recently appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show, where she shared her interest in portraying Britney Spears in a biopic if one were ever to be made. Millie expressed that she feels a connection to Britney’s story, as both grew up in the public eye, and Millie believes she could tell Britney’s story correctly.
“I want to play a real person and I think, for me, Britney. [It] would be Britney Spears,” Millie said. “I think her story, first of all, resonates with me. Just growing up in the public eye, watching her videos, watching interviews how when she was younger.”
“I see the scramble for words [in her interviews] and I don’t know her,” Millie added, “but when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in the right way and hers only.”
Britney Spears seems to have caught wind of Millie’s comments and isn’t too thrilled about the idea of a biopic.
In an Instagram post, Britney wrote, “I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life…dude I’m not dead !!! Although it’s pretty fucking clear they preferred me dead 🙄🙄🙄.”
Putting Things into Perspective
While it’s understandable that Britney might not want a movie about her life while she’s still alive, it’s also likely that Millie didn’t mean anything serious by her remarks. Biopics are a popular genre in Hollywood, but it’s important to remember that they are dramatized versions of actual events and people’s lives. It’s also worth noting that a Britney Spears biopic has yet to be officially announced or confirmed by anyone involved.
