Amy Winehouse’s former boyfriend, Reg Traviss, has turned down an offer to make a movie of Amy’s life, telling pals that the movie would be too painful.
He has been approached to help film a biopic of the late singer’s life, after she passed away from alcohol consumption back in July. However, Reg isn’t up for it and has declined to take part.
In a new interview, he said, “I guess a biopic is inevitable. I have been asked but I honestly don’t think I could do it. I’d be too close to it. But whoever does write and direct the film may exaggerate certain points to make it more Hollywood.”
He added, “The family would want to be involved to make sure that it’s done justice. But right now it’s all too raw.”
He is absolutely right. Right now is a bit too soon and however inevitable the movie is, if they don’t get the details right, then why bother shelling out the dough to make it? And why would we shell out our dough to go see it in the theaters?
