Stevie Nicks has voiced her opinion on the subject of which Hollywood actress should ever portray her on the big screen.

As the lead vocalist of Fleetwood Mac and a popular solo artist, Nicks feels confident that a biopic based on her life would be a great success.

During a recent interview, the singer talked casting for a future bio-picture while debuting her documentary "In Your Dreams" in Toronto.

The 64-year-old singer first named Reese Witherspoon as the ideal actress to portray her in a possible biopic, but has since changed her mind.

"I've already told [Reese] she's almost too old," said Nicks of 37-year-old Witherspoon, according to ET Canada.

"I love her, but she's like, 'I could play your mother.' I'm like, 'OK,'" Nicks added.

The Grammy Award-winning singer has been deemed "The Reigning Queen of Rock and Roll" and one of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" by Rolling Stone magazine. Nicks' band, Fleetwood Mac, has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Fleetwood Mac is best known for their number-one album "Rumours" which was released in 1977. It became the eighth best-selling album of all time.

Meanwhile, Witherspoon has won an Oscar, Golden Globe, and SAG Award for her portrayal of singer June Carter in 2005's "Walk the Line." The actress is also well known for her roles in films such as "Legally Blonde," "Sweet Home Alabama," and "Water for Elephants," among many others.

Witherspoon herself has commented on the process of aging, claiming "nothing's going north" on her body during an interview with Elle magazine last year.

"It's all going south, might as well put it on film now, but not without a lot of padding and a push-up bra," said the actress.

Furthermore, Witherspoon was quick to dispel that she had a perfect life.

"No one's life is perfect, and I'm sick of whatever tabloid stuff or this or that story tries to portray," said the starlet. "My life is just as realistic as everybody else's."
