Recently, Marie Osmond revealed information regarding her preference on who she considers a perfect actor to play her character in a possible future biopic. In an interview with Closer, the singer detailed that her choice would be Selena Gomez. “I think that she could probably do my life,” Osmond told the outlet. “I think she’s darling.”
She stated that she chose Gomez because they both began their careers at a tender age as child stars. “She kind of had that childhood background as an entertainer,” the country-pop singer explained. “That’s another component that I think is important to understand, being a child celebrity. There are drawbacks to that too.”

The 63-year-old believes that both she and Gomez share some similarities and experiences. “I think we kind of maybe looked alike back then a little bit,” Osmond noted. “She’s been through some really tough stuff in her life, and I think I have too.”
