Millie Bobby Brown says she would love to play Britney Spears in a movie one day

Millie Bobby Brown says she would love to play Britney Spears in a movie one day

The Stranger Things actor told Drew Barrymore that Britney's story 'resonates' with her as a child star.

Millie Bobby Brown has her eyes set on the prize.

That is, if the prize was playing pop icon Britney Spears in a biopic.

During an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, the Stranger Things star told host Drew Barrymore that the next thing she really wants to do is to play someone real.

When Barrymore pressed Brown for who she would love to play, the first name that came to the 18-year-old's lips.

"I want to play a real person. I think for me, Britney," Brown told Barrymore.

Brown revealed that Spears resonates with her as she too has grown up in the public eye.

She then told Barrymore that she felt the same way about her.

Barrymore got her big break in 1982 in the iconic 1982 film E.T.

Brown added: "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."

Fans seemed on board with the idea, with social media lighting up after the clip dropped from The Drew Barrymore Show.

One user said: "Two Queens."

A second shared a photo of the two stars alongside each other, adding: "The similarities are insane"

A third joked: "She shaved her head once, she can do it twice."

Others raised concerns about how a possible biopic would come about.

One person said: "We don’t want a Britney biopic anytime [soon] without her permission. Britney doesn’t need to be exploited [any]more."

A second agreed: "Unless she’s the writer, director, and executive producer I don’t want it."

This isn't the first time the idea has been bandied about though.

Although the Enola Holmes star used to be compared to a young Natalie Portman, others have suggested she would be perfect to play Spears.

Back in May, Brown set social media on fire with her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and looked like an utter star in a striking purple outfit.

Those who saw the show all wound up making the same comparison: Brown looks sort of like a young Britney Spears.

Naturally, that led to calls for Brown to play the pop icon in a hypothetical biopic.

We'd pay to see that. We don't know if Brown can sing or dance (we do assume so though). Then again, anything is possible with autotune.
