Dolly Parton has said who she would want to play her if a movie was made based on her life and career. The country music star was interviewed for Elle whereby she said which big stars she would be happy to portrayed by on the big screen. She said: "That depends on when I get it done," later saying Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon have crossed her mind.
The #Metoo movement
Parton reflected on how the #MeToo movement has changed things for women today.
She said: "I think that brought so much stuff to the forefront that people had not been willing to look at, even though they knew it was happening," she states. "At that time, we really hoped that it would make a bigger difference than it actually did. Although I do feel like it did open a lot of doors and a lot of eyes to a lot of problems that we'd been having since time began."
She added:"We still have a lot of the same problems. I think that we just have to keep working at it. I think the new #MeToo movement and all that stuff has thrown more light onto it. I think women are in a better place now than they've ever been before. I've been fortunate in my life that my being a girl kind of helped me along the way, and being from a strong family of men, and women, and not being afraid to stand on my own or to say, 'Go to hell,' if that's where you needed to go."
