Sharon Osbourne is planning to turn her life into a movie, according to a new interview.
The former X Factor judge first became a regular on screens thanks to the hit MTV reality show The Osbournes, which ran from 2002-2005. Since then, she has also appeared in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Family Guy, Will & Grace, America’s Got Talent, and more.
Speaking to The Sun, Osbourne reportedly revealed her plans to produce a biopic focusing on her life before fame. “Of course my husband [Ozzy Osbourne] takes part in the movie – somebody will play him – but, mainly, it’s about my life story up until I met my husband,” she said, adding that she had asked Danny Boyle to direct the film.
“Just before Christmas, somebody said they had seen a movie script written about my life and it was on this website called Blacklist – that is where writers go with scripts that are available to buy,” she explained. “So I downloaded it, read it, and it didn’t make sense. Timelines were all crazy.”
She continued: “It had no heart, it just wasn’t me. How could somebody do that without asking me first? I got really upset but forgot it because I’m working on my own thing.”
Osbourne added that she had received a call from a friend who works at Universal, who revealed that the studio is considering making the script she downloaded into a film of their own. “I’m like, ‘No, no, don’t do it. No, I’m not involved, that’s not my life,’” she said. “It was the same script that was on that Blacklist and I was fuming.”
Last year, Osbourne revealed how she drugged her husband with sleeping pills in a bid to find out about his affairs. “He would have never told me the truth, ever,” she said of her reasoning behind taking the drastic measures. “He was ashamed, afraid. I knew how long. I knew who it was. I knew what he was thinking and then, you know, you leave.”
Meanwhile, Ozzy has postponed the first dates on his upcoming No More Tours 2 UK tour.
The Black Sabbath singer has been forced to reschedule shows in Dublin, Newcastle, Nottingham, and Manchester after contracting the flu.
