Stevie Nicks: Reese is too old to play me in biopic

As a member of Fleetwood Mac as well as a successful solo artist, Stevie Nicks is undeniably one of music’s true legends. Her wild past of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll are the perfect fodder for the big screen and the singer knows who she’d like to portray her in a biopic — Reese Witherspoon. Her choice makes sense — Reese did, after all, win an Oscar for playing another iconic musician, June Carter Cash, in Walk the Line.  But it seems it might be too late to make this movie magic happen, since Stevie says, “I’ve already told her she’s almost too old.”

True, Reese is no longer on the ‘edge of seventeen’ but too old? “I love her, but she’s like, ‘I could play your mother’ I’m like okay.”

We caught up with the Gold Dust Woman on the Toronto red carpet of her new film, In Your Dreams. The documentary chronicles the making of Stevie’s first solo album in 10 years, of the same name, In Your Dreams.

Filming the process was her producing partner, Dave Stewart’s idea. “He’s totally insane and fantastic and he films everything,” Stevie says of Dave, who himself is a member of one of music’s iconic groups, The Eurythmics. “When he suggested it I was like ‘oh please, you’re not serious, right?’” Stevie eventually agreed to let the cameras in, but assumed the footage would end up being a personal memento, not a full-length feature film! “I thought a few people would see it and love it and it would go back on the library shelf,” she explains. “They say good things come to people who wait… I think good things come to people who don’t expect anything!”

Stevie walked the red carpet just over 24 hours before a reunited Fleetwood Mac are to take the stage for a nearly sold-out show at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre.

Clad in her trademark head-to-toe black, Stevie admitted that, even after all these years of performing she still gets nervous before a big show: “I said to Lindsey (Buckingham) it’s disturbingly big because you’re putting on your shoes and all of a sudden you’re walking on stage in front of 16,000 people and you’re like, ‘is this really happening?’”
