Dolly Parton is as bold and busy as ever. And the 68-year-old knows it will take an equally vivacious and bodacious personality to inhabit her when it comes time to make Dolly’s busy life come alive on screen. Her choice to play herself? Scarlett Johansson. ScarJo’s qualifications? “I think they would have to have the right personality,” Parton told The Guardian in an interview, adding another important factor: “I think they would have to have some big boobs.”
Parton, ever the professional performer, even went out of her way to distinguish between the dramatic Dolly on stage and screen. “Kristin Chenoweth would be great for the stage,” the country superstar said. Chenoweth is slightly less curvy–only slightly–but her voice touches the heavens. And you should know: a movie about Dolly Parton’s life isn’t just some far-fetched idea–Parton’s been working on the project for some time. She’ll get it done, surely.
