Stevie Nicks: Reese Witherspoon Is 'Too Old' to Play Me in a Movie

Stevie Nicks has said Reese Witherspoon would be her choice to portray her in a biopic, but now the Fleetwood Mac singer has cooled on the idea. "I've already told [Reese] she's almost too old," Nicks told Entertainment Tonight Canada at the premiere of her new documentary, In Your Dreams.

The film tracks Nicks as she crafts her 2011 album, In Your Dreams, and the singer endorsed the 37-year-old Witherspoon in the movie. But Nicks now thinks too much time has passed. "I love her, but she's like, 'I could play your mother.' I'm like 'O.K.,'" said Nicks, 64.

It wouldn't be Witherspoon's first go at playing a musician onscreen: the actress won an Oscar, Golden Globe and SAG Award for her role as June Carter in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.
