HOLLYWOOD: Angelina Jolie reportedly turned down a Celine Dion biopic.
Celine, 51, wants to turn her life story into a musical movie and she is said to have asked Angelina, 43, to play her. However, Celine was left disappointed after the star – who is a good friends – turned her down because she is too busy.
A source told RadarOnline: ‘’For years now, Celine’s big passion has been a musical movie adaptation of her life, career and marriage to Rene [Angelil]. She wants this to happen for both her kids and her fans, and was dead-set on Angie landing the part.’’ ‘’Celine considered Angie a good friend, and is devastated that she’s turning down the role.’’ Meanwhile, Celine – who has children René-Charles, 18, and eight-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy with late husband René – recently claimed that she is happier than ever at the age of 51. She said: ‘’I am like a one-year-old! I’m not saying that I don’t care what people think of me, but I’ve reached a point in my life where I can let myself make my own decisions and choices…. ‘’Now I am discovering myself more and more. I am a woman assuming her own destiny, full of energy and in love with life. It’s never too late to start. At 51, I have the sense that I am at my pinnacle!’’ The ‘My Heart Will Go On’ hitmaker is delighted to have landed a deal as global spokesperson for L’Oréal Paris because she wants other women to feel as ‘’strong’’ and positive as she does.
