Who is it? It’s Millie Bobbie Brown, bitch. Tea Enola Holmes 2 star shared with Drew Barrymore that one of her biggest career goals is to portray Britney Spears in a biopic about her life. She connects with the star through their shared experience of being in the spotlight at such a young age. “I think her story, first of all, resonates with me growing up in the public eye. Watching her videos, watching interviews of her when she was younger. Same thing with you; I see the scramble for words [in the interviews],” Brown explained to Barrymore. “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.” Brown makes a strong case for why she, a Brit, would play the perfect Brit(ney), especially since she’s already shown off her singing voice and sang Spears’ “Gimme More” in a game with her BFF Noah Schnapp. Schnapp could probably play K-Fed or Bryan Spears once Brown produces the film in ten years. You may say Brown is a dreamer, but she’s not the only one; plenty of others have noticed the similarities between her and Spears.
However, people eventually wake up from their dreams. The next morning, Britney herself seemingly responded to Brown’s pitch and wasn’t happy about the idea of a biopic. “I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life… dude I’m not dead!!!” Britney posted on Instagram the day after the interview was posted. While her post was mostly about her parents’ treatment of her throughout her life, it seems that Britney isn’t on board with a biopic.
