Of all the actresses performing these days, Britney Spears as dubbed Natalie Portman as the one worthy to tell her life story.
The pop star has revealed she would like to see the Oscar-winning Black Swan and Thor: The Dark World portray her on the big screen if there is ever a biopic made about her life. In a Twitter Q&A to promote her new album Britney Jean on Tuesday, Britney was asked, "If you could pick anyone to play you as a character in a movie, who would you choose? @britneyspears #AskBritneyJean [sic]."
The 31-year-old star responded by suggesting the 32-year-old brunette beauty, who began her acting career over 20 years ago and, like Britney, grew up in the spotlight.

"I had a sense that it was going to jump around in different ways. But it’s not as if that inhibited me — I felt like I could just go for it. But even when [director Harmony Korine] sent me that first treatment, [he] said I want this to feel like a Britney Spears video meets a Gaspar Noé film, which says a lot."
- James Franco talks about the inspiration behind his latest film, Spring Breakers, helmed by Trash Humpers writer-director Harmony Korine.

Lindsay Lohan has always wanted to be Britney Spears.
The 23-year-old actress knew from a young age that she wanted to emulate the pop star’s worldwide success and be the talk of gossip columns and magazines.
“Everyone goes through tough times, and the second that I decided I wanted to be in front of the camera… I think I always kind of aspired to be like Britney Spears. I wanted to be in the tabloids when I was in middle school. It’s kind of something you sign up for in the beginning, and if you really want it, you know what comes with it.”
Lindsay, who has had three stints in rehab for drug and alcohol addiction and been charged with driving under the influence, insists that she is proud of what she has achieved and has grown in confidence with age.
While it’s not unlike Quentin Tarantino to make unexpected casting choices (Travolta as a hitman?), you can add this bit to the Too Outrageous to Believe category.
A report in the Daily Telegraph claimed the Inglorious Bastards director had been looking to hire Britney Spears for a role as a killer lesbian. The movie, a remake of the 1965 film Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, centers around a trio of strippers who terrorize a couple they find in the desert.
According to the British newspaper, both parties were eager to work together on the project. “Quentin is convinced Britney will be brilliant. She’s delighted. She thinks it could turn her career around,” said a source.

US Magazine is reporting that Britney Spears may be taking on a very holy role in the near future. It seems a French producer has deemed the
pop star a perfect fit for his satirical take on the classic nativity story. In this modern-day version, Britney would play an unwed pregnant girl, named Mary, who gives birth on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, Maryland.
Although the film is hers for the taking, Spears is still supposedly mulling over the offer. A decision on the role is expected to be made within the next few days. Production on Sweet Baby Jesus is scheduled to begin in March.

What’s hot this Halloween? Hollywood is always hot, and this year the costume ideas are churning right out of LA. Will you have the popular look this October 31st?
Britney is in…at least, she’s in if you’re trying to make her look bad. This Halloween, plenty of men are dressing drag and letting beer bellies hang. The look? Britney Spears, a la the VMAs. The costume? Extremely skimpy – so don’t wear it unless you plan to stay indoors.
Little boys are gearing up as mini Transformers and suiting up in the black Spidey costume, so be prepared to meet pint-sized heroes at the door this year. Pirates of the Caribbean outfits are still in; it’s the Halloween look that just won’t go away (like the movies).
Spartans sporting the 300 look will be appearing at parties this year, as will the more comedic look of Will Ferrell’s Ricky Bobby. Though the movie is old (over a year, now), the look is not – elaborate and over-the-top Marie Antoinette costumes are all the rage for those who want to go all out.

Joe Nasser, the executive producer of the new Anna Nicole Smith movie, is embarking on another Hollywood project. He’s in pre-production on a flick titled Hollywood Brats, which will be based on the real-life crime events of “a trio of young celebrities.” Hmmmm. I wonder to whom he could be referring? Nasser said the film is about Hollywood girls getting into trouble. All will go to jail, get arrested, and go through trials and tribulations during the flick. The script will use the names of real celebs, but Nasser is staying tight-lipped about what those names are. Early guesses suspect Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan, and Britney Spears. Hollywood Brats will be an independent flick, and Nasser says he can make the feature even without permission to use certain names. “As long as we stick to the truth, we’re in good shape.” The move will be based on public record.
