Britney Spears Inspired Gwyneth Paltrow's Character In "Country Strong"
Who knew Gwyneth Paltrow would ever find out she was really playing Britney Spears? In her new flick Country Strong, Paltrow plays a strugging addict star and Britney's the inspiration behind the film says writer-director Shana Feste.
"That's where this movie came from. I mean, I was seeing what was happening in the media to Britney Spears," Feste told the Ministry at a Los Angeles screening of the film.
"I finished the script when Michael Jackson passed away. I think it's tragic how we treat people who give us so much, and we love to see them knocked down to build them back up again, to knock them down again.
"It's a weird fascination."
