Joni Mitchell on idea of Taylor Swift playing her in biopic

Independent News and Media

JONI Mitchell has addressed rumours that Taylor Swift is set to play her in a film about her life and chosen to wish the pop sensation, "good luck".

But while the Canadian legend's message may sound friendly enough, she is far from keen on the idea and there is more than a hint of sarcasm to her tone.

Swift was first considered for the role in a film adaptation of Girls Like Us by Sheila Weller back in 2012. The book studies Mitchell's impact on the music scene, along with that of her Seventies contemporaries Carly Simon and Carole King.

Mitchell admitted to stalling the project last November when she claimed to have "squelched" plans, but when asked again recently about being played by Swift, she still had more to say.

"I've never heard Taylor's music," Mitchell said, according to New York Magazine. "I've seen her. Physically, she looks similarly small-hipped and high cheekbones. I can see why the cast her.

"I don't know what her music sounds like, but I do know this - that if she's going to sing and play me, good luck."
