Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is on a promotion spree for Netflix’s ‘Enola Holmes 2’ which has her a seat reserved on various shows.
She appeared as a guest on The Drew Barrymore Show, where she stated that she would like to play Britney Spears in the singer’s biopic.
“I want to play a real person, and I think for me, Britney. It would be Britney Spears. I think her story, first of all, resonates with me,” Brown said on the show.
While appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show, Millie Bobby Brown said, “Just growing up in the public eye, watching her videos, watching interviews of her when she was younger. I mean, same thing with you. I see the scramble for words and 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 and hers only.”
However, Britney Spears wasn’t very keen on the idea of her biopic being made, “Good news, good news !!! Still breathing … it’s funny. The same two people who gave me life are the same exact 2 people who took it away … but guess what !!! I’m alive and I’m breathing again !!! Yeah, I know I’ve posted too much this week on Instagram… kinda fun though !!! Now that I’m breathing … I have time … it’s different !!! I like it !!!” “I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life … dude I’m not dead !!! Although it’s pretty clear they preferred me dead … I guess my family is going to lock their doors now !!! Either way … I just want to say hi and share these fabulous doors !!! I did kinda post too much this week … I’m embarrassed !!! I get it … oh well !!! Have a good day!!!” wrote the Toxic singer in an Instagram post.
Spears clearly took offense to Brown’s comments; fans pointed out that she meant no harm.
“We love you, Britney ❤️ Also, I think Millie Bobby Brown meant it as a compliment that she wanted to play you in a movie and that she’d honor you properly, don’t be offended, Queen! ❤️✨️,” commented a person.
Millie Bobby Brown recently acted in the second part of the Netflix film Enola Holmes, in which she played the titular role of a young detective steering through life and attempting to keep up with her brother Sherlock, played by Henry Cavill.
