Avril Lavigne Names The Actress She Would Like To Portray Her In A Possible Movie
Access Hollywood interviewed Avril Lavigne at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards. She unveiled the Hollywood star that could portray her in an autobiographical movie based on Lavigne’s journey of becoming the Pop Punk Queen.
In recent years, the biopics about iconic bands and musicians such as Mötley Crüe’s ‘The Dirt,’ Freddie Mercury’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ and Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’ drew significant attention from the movie and music lovers simultaneously. The musicians mostly were in charge of their portrayals and the plot of these autobiographical movies about them. The story and casting the right actor were essential for them since many fans want a precise portrayal of their beloved musicians.
Finding the actor to portray a famous musician can be very hard considering the possible negative responses from the fans. Therefore the producers and casting directors must find the person that looks and acts like them as if they are the lost twins of the musicians. In addition, the other artists’ fans are waiting for the new announcements about their upcoming biopics, and Lavigne’s fans can be considered one of them.
Thus, the reporter wanted to know the actress that Lavigne would choose in a possible movie about her life, and her answer was the ‘Twilight’ star, Kristen Stewart. She stated that it would be cool to have Stewart playing her, and the fans started to wonder about the star’s ideas. Moreover, previously Stewart had portrayed Joan Jett in the American biographical drama film, ‘The Runaways,’ so she’s an experienced actress in that genre.
Lavigne stated in her interview that:
“Trying to think. Kristen Stewart would be cool to play me in a film. She’s dope.”
