Paula Patton says that she is keen to play Whitney Houston in the rumoured upcoming biopic.
Several famous celebrities have been pipped to play the legendary singer in the film about her turbulent life, since she tragically died on February 11. Rihanna and even Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina have reportedly been considered for the role, but Mission Impossible actress Paula has now volunteered to take on the role.
"It would be an honor to play her. She’s a magnificent woman with an extraordinary career and personal life," Paula told GlobalGrind.
"And someone I admire greatly for everything she accomplished. I can’t even fathom it, but if it was to come my way, I’d absolutely be interested. For now, it feels way too soon though."
Would Paula do the role justice? Who do you think should play Whitney?
