Reese Witherspoon 'Too Old' to Play Stevie Nicks Says the Deluded Singer

Say What!? 4

Reese WitherspoonStevie Nicks thinks Reese Witherspoon is too old for her. Yep, the legendary singer wants to hook up with the legendary actress. On the big screen, people! Get your minds out of the gutter. Reese had been Stevie's personal pick to play her on the silver screen should her life ever become a biopic, but Reese is quickly aging out of that role. Stevie became a star when she was 26 and joined Fleetwood Mac and Reese is now 37. However, Stevie needs to look at the big picture. Reese is a STAH. Plus, she can belt out a tune. Not necessarily with that gravely voice that Stevie is famous for, but she could at least convincingly lip synch to Stevie's croak!

But Reese's star power isn't quite swaying picky Stevie. She told ET Canada: "I've told [Reese] she's almost too old."

And apparently Reese agrees with her, reportedly telling Stevie: "I could play your mother."

But on the up side, Reese doesn't look her age. (Although I hate that phrase. What's a 30-something-year-old supposed to look like?) Reese could definitely pass for her early to mid-20s, covering Stevie's early years, and then easily portray a woman in her early 30s for Stevie's diva years.

Of course, this means the movie would have to get started pronto, and no movie ever gets started pronto, especially when it's still just a gleam in Stevie's and Reese's eyes. The movie doesn't have a script or a greenlight or anything of the sort. So, yeah, it's not looking that great for Reese. She could be a grandma by the time The Stevie Nicks Story reaches your local cineplex. Maybe one of the kids from Glee could take over.

That said, Stevie should be happy to have Reese at any age. There are few women in Hollywood who can open a movie -- but Reese is one of them. I mean, you can't see Julia Roberts playing Stevie, can you?

And let's not forget that Reese won an Oscar for playing June Carter in Walk the Line. And it really takes a big star to get a movie rolling these days. So Reese would be perfect. She might be even able to pull it off in her 40s, who knows. Anyway, Stevie, never talk about your lady friend's age in public, that's just rude!

Other actresses who can sing include Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway, and Scarlett Johansson. Yeah, not seeing them as Stevie either. Maybe Selena Gomez could dye her hair? Or they could just get a little radical and put Justin Bieber in a wig.

Who do you think should play Stevie?

Carrie Underwood as Stevie Nicks. Lose that twang. . .

I agree with Stevie. If the movie is going to be set in the Rumours era then Reese is too old to play her. Now if the film is going to be 80's solo career and drug rehab/klonopin Stevie, then Reese could be just fine, though I think I'd rather see an unknown or little known actress play Stevie.

Stevie should look into actress Taylor Spreitler from the daytime soap Days of our lives. The first time I saw her I thought she looks like a young Stevie Nicks.

Mark Wright

I thought that samething. She also sings too. Taylor S go for it
