Britney Spears wants Natalie Portman to star in her biopic

During a Twitter Q&A to promote her upcoming album "Britney Jean," Britney Spears was asked who she would choose to star in a movie based on her life.

We definitely can't blame Brit-Brit for going with gorgeous actress Natalie Portman, since ageless Natalie probably still could pull off playing Britney during her "Baby One More Time" days. The Oscar-winning star also proved that she's willing to shave her head for a movie role in "V for Vendetta," and she spoke with a Southern accent in "Where the Heart Is."

Spears isn't the only celebrity who has a star picked out for a biopic. Here's a look at a few other celebs who have chosen who they want to see in movies based on their lives:

Hulk Hogan

This wrestler/reality show star wants Natalie Portman's "Thor" co-star to rock his signature bandanna and horseshoe mustache. Chris Hemsworth certainly has the bulk to play Hulk, and a lot of ladies would love to see him in tight spandex. Back in August, Hogan revealed that two "hot young writers" are still working on the screenplay for his biopic, so he has plenty of time to try to talk Hemsworth into throwing on a feather boa and stepping into the wrestling ring.

Elton John

This legendary singer wanted Justin Timberlake to don his signature snazzy specs and splashy suits in the upcoming movie based on his life. "No. 1 on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of 'Rocket Man' and was superb," John told the Los Angeles Times. This certainly would have been a sight to see, but Sir Elton didn't get his way. However, it's hard to imagine the singer complaining about who got cast in his biopic instead. According to Variety, "The Dark Knight Rises" actor Tom Hardy will star in the movie titled "Rocketman." After wearing Bane's insane face mask, Hardy should have no problem pulling off Elton's goofy glasses.

Kim Kardashian

In 2011, Kim told Next Movie that she'd choose "Desperate Housewives" actress Eva Longoria to star in her biopic. This proved to be the perfect pick -- the lovely ladies look so much alike that singer Bret Michaels once got them confused. However, Kim might consider playing herself now that she has a big acting credit under her belt -- she starred in Tyler Perry's "Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor" earlier this year. The critics weren't kind, but maybe Kim would do a better job playing Kim after doing so on E! for all these years.

Iggy Pop

This punk rocker has one of the wackiest casting ideas for his biopic. According to Prefix Mag, The Stooges singer told Australia's Triple J radio that Lindsay Lohan is his top choice. "She looks like me, and she's the only one with enough attitude too," he said. "They could tape her boobs up or something. She's been in jail at the right age and everything, so I thought she could do it." However, Lindsay's body would still have to be digitally altered since Iggy wears a shirt about as often as Lindsay wears a bra.

Aretha Franklin

This soul singer once said that she'd love to have Halle Berry star in her biopic, but the stunning Oscar-winning actress backed away from the project because she can't sing and doesn't feel comfortable playing Franklin. Luckily, Aretha has plenty of R-E-S-P-E-C-T for two other potential stars, Jennifer Hudson and Tony winner Audra McDonald.

One Direction

Apparently the young members of this British boy band want their movie to be set in the future -- they all want to be played by older actors. Niall Horan made the most reasonable pick by choosing "Harry Potter" baddie Tom Felton, but Liam Payne went with "geezer" Robert Downey, Jr. Pretty boy Zayn Malik inexplicably chose bald action star Vin Diesel, and at least Louis Tomlinson picked someone who he sort of resembles by going with Leonardo Dicaprio. Harry Styles's choice was "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Johnny Depp, which might have something to do with why Hazza keeps getting tattoos -- he just wants to look more like the inked-up actor.

Do you agree with any of these stars' biopic picks?
