Britney Spears Biopic Actress Says the Movie Is "A Feminist Story at Its Core"

Watch the trailer for ‘Britney Ever After’ here.

Last year, news broke that Britney Spears will get her very own biopic. Entitled Britney Ever After, the film is produced by cable network Lifetime, and stars Australian actress Natasha Bassett as the pop princess. Highlighting everything from the Britney’s past relationship with Justin Timberlake to her infamous shaved head, the movie aims to pay tribute to one of the most iconic divas of our generation.

In a recent interview with Vogue, Bassett spoke candidly about her audition, as well as why she believes that the movie is “a feminist story at its core.” As she explains,

[The movie] shines a positive light on how strong Britney is and what a great human being she is. She’s not only one of the world’s most powerful performers, she’s also a mother to two gorgeous sons and she has a residency in Vegas, so it shines a light to all these positive attributes of her personality. I hope she sees that.

Britney Ever After premieres on Lifetime at 8 p.m. EST on February 18. Sneak a peek at the film by watching the trailer below:
