Goldie Hawn‘s daughter Kate Hudson is throwing her hat in the ring to play Stevie Nicks in a biopic. While there have been several documentaries about the rock star, there is not currently a biopic in the works about her life and career. However, with all of the biopics in recent years, it would be no surprise if one does come out of the woodwork.

Hudson opened up about her dream in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. She admitted, “I think for all girls who love rock, Stevie’s just our No. 1. Her whole life experience and the music. Fleetwood Mac, that whole journey from before Stevie to after Stevie? And her relationship with Lindsey [Buckingham]? It’s like a trilogy. There’s so much there. To me, that’s like the ultimate rock & roll story.”

However, the 45-year-old said that her family may not be thrilled if she ever got the role. She added, “My family might, like, disown me if I ever got a chance to play Stevie. Cause they’d be like, ‘Can we not go method?’ I would probably go way too far into that character.”

Nicks is not the only artist that Hudson would love to emulate. She would love to play Dusty Springfield, an iconic singer who passed away in 1999. Hudson said that Springfield had a very interesting life and shared, “She had a lot of stage fright. Really fascinating woman. I think she struggled with being open about her sexuality. That could be a very powerful movie.”

Hudson could be the perfect choice for either of the ladies because not only can she act, but she can sing. Just a few weeks ago, she released her debut album called Glorious. When asked why she waited so long to share her voice with the world, she revealed that she was afraid of rejection for many years. She explained, “I really just want to share it. I recognize that you’re not gonna win everybody over. But I can’t be led by that fear, or else I just would never put art into the world.” Listen to one of her new songs below and let us know what you think of her voice!
