Kylie Minogue says she wants fellow Aussie Margot Robbie to play her should her life ever get turned into a biopic.
When asked by E! News this week who she would like to play her in the big screen version of her life, Minogue immediately responded with a laugh: "Margot Robbie — in my dreams!
"She'd have the Australian accent down, that's for sure."
Minogue and Robbie have more in common than just their home country; both women got their first big break on Neighbours.
Both actors joined the long-running soap when they were just 17.
Minogue played Charlene Robinson from 1986 to 1988. Meanwhile, Robbie arrived in Ramsay Street in 2008 as Donna Freedman.
Elsewhere in the interview, Minogue spoke of who she would love to collaborate with musically.
“Most collaborations I’ve done have come to me, so I haven’t had to make that decision,” she said. “But whoever I work with. There’s always something to learn.”
She then named Beyoncé and Rihanna as dream collaborations.
Minogue is currently promoting her upcoming Las Vegas residency at The Venetian Resort, which kicks off on November 3.
"I was thinking years ago I want to do it when I’m younger, like, I don’t want to do it when I’m at the sunset of my career," said told reporters last week.
She added: "I think I’ve got it right somewhere in the middle where I feel like I’ve earned the right to and have the experience to really enjoy being there."
The show will feature songs from her upcoming sixteenth album, Tension, and also cover the biggest hits of her four-decade career.
"I want it to be the kind of essence of what a Kylie show has become, so enough glamour and abandon," she explained. "I’ve got some versions of songs that have not been heard, reinterpretations of songs, which is exciting. Live band and dancers, amazing costumes. That’s the base — and then we’ll see what surprises we can come up with."
She'll be the inaugural headliner at Voltaire, a new 1,000-seat venue, which promises to blur the lines between an intimate club, concert and entertainment venue.
"I'm so grateful to feel a part of the inception of this," she said. "It's just so exciting that we're going to be creating something new."
And who knows, maybe one day Robbie will reenact the residency in the biopic of Minogue's life!
