Miley Cyrus wants to play Dolly Parton on big screen

London: Pop star Miley Cyrus has reportedly been begging her godmother, singer Dolly Parton to let her play her in a movie of her life.

The 21-year-old `Wrecking Ball` hitmaker is concerned the role in the highly-anticipated biopic on Parton will go to actress Scarlett Johansson and is doing everything she can to convince the `Jolene` singer she is the right person to play her in a movie about her life.

"Miley is bugging Dolly for the role. But Dolly refuses to play favourites, even though Miley has been bombarding her with audition tapes," a source said.

"This movie is her legacy, and she told Miley she doesn`t have the acting chops to pull it off," it added.
