Kristin Chenoweth has been told by the Dolly herself, that she is the country music superstar’s first choice to play her in a movie, should the opportunity present itself. According to Chenoweth:
“I love Dolly, everybody loves her. I talked with her at the Capitol on Memorial Day at one of the concerts and she jumped out of a freakin’ cake with a red white and blue hat and just looked amazing. Her waist was tiny and I was just in amazement (sitting) in the wings. She walked up to me and she said, ‘I’ve been hearing about you now Kristy. I just can’t see anybody else playing me but you.’ She calls her assistant in, ‘Carol have you seen this girl? She’s so me! Look at her.’ Then she said, ‘You know what, I’m gonna have my people stay in touch with you and see what we can do about that.’”
And congratulations, Angelina Jolie, you’ll be happy to hear that I’ve very graciously chosen you to play me in a movie. You can stop holding your breath now.
