Kate Bush says she’d choose Johnny Depp to play her in biopic

But the singer-songwriter said her life wasn't 'interesting enough' for a feature film

Kate Bush has brushed off the idea of a feature film based on her life story.

The famously reclusively 58-year-old singer-songwriter said that she would not be comfortable with a biopic being made about her in a new interview.

“I don’t think it’s a very nice idea at all,” she told Canadian magazine Maclean’s. “I don’t think my life is that interesting. I’m quite a private person and I like my work to do the talking.”


But despite withholding her blessing for a biopic, Bush disclosed a rather unusual preference for the actor to play her.

“However, if I ever were in a position to choose who would play me, I think I’d choose Johnny Depp,” she added.

In the same interview, Bush praised Theresa May, describing the UK prime minister her as “wonderful”.

“She’s a very intelligent woman but I don’t see much to fear,” she added. “I will say it is great to have a woman in charge of the country. She’s very sensible and I think that’s a good thing at this point in time.”

Bush became the first woman to achieve a self-penned UK number one with ‘Wuthering Heights’ in 1978 and her 1980 album ‘Never For Ever’ made her the first British solo female artist to score a No.1.

Her latest live album ‘Before the Dawn’ is on course to return her to the top of the charts this weekend. Listen to ‘Wake Up’ from the album below.
