The actress recently went on The Drew Barrymore Show, where she said she wanted to play the pop princess in a biopic. Spears’ response is, to say the least, surprising.
The actress who played Enola Holmes told Barrymore, “I want to play a real person.” Brown told Barrymore, who also knows what it’s like to grow up as a child star, “I think for me, it would be Britney Spears.
I think her story, first of all, speaks to me. Just growing up in the public eye, watching her videos and interviews from when she was younger. I mean, the same thing with you.”
“In her interviews, she seems to be at a loss for words. I don’t know her, but when I look at pictures of her, I feel like I could tell her story in a way that is only hers.”
Brown was trying to be respectful of the singer’s story, but this news didn’t seem to sit well with Spears, so she took to Instagram to talk about it. Look at the original article to see the media that is embedded.
“Good news, good news!!! Still breathing… it’s funny that the same two people who gave me life are the same two people who took it away… but guess what??? I’m alive, and I’m breathing again!!!” she wrote about the conservatorship she was under for almost 13 years until it ended in November.
She went on to say, “I hear that people want to make movies about my life… dude, I’m not dead!!! But it’s pretty clear they’d rather I was dead… I guess my family will lock their doors now.”
Brown hasn’t said anything about what Spears said about her wanting to play the pop star.
