Rumors circulated earlier this week that Lady Gaga was set to play Amy Winehouse in a big screen biography of the late UK singer. Her family has chimed in on the subject and even admitted that although at first they were reluctant, they are now warming to the idea of a movie about their daughter’s short, but brilliant life.
First, Amy’s father took to Twitter to comment on the Lady Gaga rumors. “I never said Lady Gaga will play Amy in film,” her father Mitch said. “What a load of rubbish.”
The family’s spokesperson later released a statement on their thoughts about the big screen serving as a venue for telling their daughter’s story.
“Mitch and the family would entertain ideas perhaps for a film, but only one they were sure would tell the truth,” the statement read.
