Dolly Parton has confirmed she's writing a stage musical about her own life - and if it's turned into a movie she'll play herself.

The singer, who is receiving rave reviews in Los Angeles for writing the stage version of her hit movie 9 To 5, is hoping to follow up that project with a life story double whammy.

Parton reveals three actresses will portray her at different points in her life in a stage version - and she'd play the current Dolly - if the musical is picked up as a movie.

"I'm writing my own life story as a musical. I won't even probably be in it, but, if I do it as a movie, I would play the later part." - Wenn
