“I do intend someday to be on Broadway, but I’m thinking now that I might do my life story as a feature,” she continued. “Maybe possibly even a musical feature, so we’re in talks about that.”

Dolly went on to say, that in her vision, Kristin would be one of several actress to portray her at various ages.

“We’d probably have to have — as long as my career has been — like a little Dolly and a middle Dolly and then the older one,” Dolly explained.

Dolly then revealed the actor she has in mind to play her one-time musical partner Porter Wagoner.

“You know who would make a great Porter, though, in all seriousness?” Dolly said. “Oh goodness, what’s the guy that does Ace Ventura? Jim Carrey.”
