Kate Bush: 'I'm not interesting enough for a biopic'

29th Nov 16 | Entertainment News

Kate Bush doesn't think her life story is interesting enough to warrant a big screen biopic.

The 58-year-old musician rose to fame at the age of 19 with her self-penned 1978 hit Wuthering Heights before becoming one of pop music's more enigmatic figures.

She gave up touring in 1979 and shied away from the public eye after the release of her 1993 album The Red Shoes, rarely releasing music or giving interviews and only returning to the stage in 2014.

Despite her unusual life story intriguing fans, Kate says she'd be uncomfortable with a film being made about her.

"I don't think it's a very nice idea at all," she tells Canada's Maclean's magazine. "I don't think my life is that interesting. I'm quite a private person and I like my work to do the talking."

However, should a Kate Bush movie be made, she has an unusual choice for the actor to play her, adding, "I think I'd choose Johnny Depp."

Until she began promoting her new live album, Before the Dawn, recorded at a series of concerts she gave in 2014, the star had not given an interview in six years.

Now the singer-songwriter has returned to the limelight, she has even weighed in on the series of extraordinary political events which have occurred in her native Britain this year (16).

In June (16), Britons voted to leave the European Union (EU), causing Prime Minister David Cameron to resign and be replaced by Theresa May.

Kate expressed her support for Theresa in the interview, saying, "I actually really like her and think she's wonderful. I think it's the best thing that's happened to us in a long time. She's a very intelligent woman but I don't see much to fear. I will say it is great to have a woman in charge of the country. She's very sensible and I think that's a good thing at this point in time."

Before the Dawn is the top selling album in the U.K. so far this week, putting Kate on course for her first number one record in more than three decades when the new chart is announced on Friday (02Dec16).
