Just days before she died, the blockbuster novelist revealed who she wanted to play her in a movie about her life.
Jackie said that she thought Angelina Jolie, the 40-year-old Hollywood actress was perfect for the part – because as she put it “she’s done everything” – referring to her wild past.
The British-born writer, who died last week aged 77 after a six-year battle with breast cancer, expressed her wish while in the UK promoting her latest book The Santangelos.
“I’d choose Angelina Jolie… she’s been the wild child, she’s been married, she’s done drugs, she’s done this, she’s done that, she’s done everything. Now she’s a wonderful humanitarian, she’s got a great husband, she’s got tons of kids.
“I’ve always said if you’re going to get married you’ve got to do everything before you get married so that you’re never looking out of your marriage saying what have I missed, because you haven’t missed anything.”
It’s also been revealed that Jackie’s sister, Joan Collins, only discovered her sibling was ill a fortnight before she died. Jackie managed to keep this a secret from not only the public, but from her family also.
What do you think of Angelina Jolie playing Jackie Collins in a movie about her life? We think she’d be perfect!
