  • Heather Mills wants Reese Witherspoon to play her in life story

    HEATHER MILLS CERTAINLY sets her sights high – she’s reportedly hankering after Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon to play her in a movie depicting her life story.

    Miss Mills has flown to America after the deadline she set Sir Paul McCartney to agree a £50 million divorce settlement passed without agreement.

    Heather is now set to embark on a media barrage in the US. First stop? A meeting in Los Angeles with American film writer and producer Robert von Dassanowsky to discuss the making of a film of her life.

    ‘Heather has been working for some time on the biopic. Of course it had all been shelved while she thought they were heading for a settlement,’ one insider tells the Daily Mail.

    ‘But the script was dusted off pretty rapidly over the weekend. She had wanted Heather Locklear to play her. She now feels someone with slightly more credibility like Reese Witherspoon should play her.’

    He added: ‘Heather sees this film as the tragic and empowering story of her life – a young model who gets run over and loses her leg, overcomes her difficulties and marries her prince. But the most interesting part of the tale will be the dark goings on between the couple behind closed doors.’

    The 39-year-old is also lined up to reveal all on the Larry King and Oprah Winfrey TV shows.
