Dolly Parton knows exactly what actress she would like to see portray her in a biopic and now that star, Scarlett Johansson, has reacted and sounds like she’s up for it.

“Those are big shoes to fill,” the 34-year-old actress shared during her appearance at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles, according to Entertainment Tonight in a piece published Tuesday. (RELATED: Celebrate Dolly Parton’s Birthday With Her Most Memorable Looks [SLIDESHOW])

“Or, probably not. They are probably very tiny, dainty, sparkly, fabulous shoes,” she added, while discussing the idea of playing like the legendary country singer in a film. (RELATED: Celebrate Anna Kendrick’s Birthday With Her Hottest Looks [SLIDESHOW])

Johansson continued, “I have never found a biopic that I felt compelled to try my hand at. But maybe. I don’t know. Just for the costumes alone!”

“She [Parton] is quite a woman,” the “Avengers” star went on. “She’s a hard-working woman and she embodies everything that is fierce independence. So, I’m sure it would be a lot of work but it would be good work. So, maybe!”

It all comes after the 73-year-old singer/actress dropped Johansson’s name and Reese Witherspoon’s recently when asked who she would like to play her in a future biopic. However,  there is currently no movie about Parton in the works, according to Fox News.
