"Blake is a hoot!" Midler recently told Billboard
in an interview on Thursday. "He is on the small screen, but I personally think -- if I were his agent -- I would get him on a big screen as quick as possible."
While Blake Shelton only has a few acting credits to his name -- including guest hosting Saturday Night Live
in 2015 and playing Wyatt Earp in Adam Sandler's Ridiculous Six
-- Midler has no doubts as to his potential movie star power.
"He’s so photogenic, like a John Wayne type," Midler shared.
Midler didn't just love her time with Shelton, she seemed to have a great time helping mentor his young Voice hopefuls as well.
"I wasn’t going to do it," Midler admitted. "I was with a bunch of people and I said to a very well-known singer, 'I don’t want to do The Voice, because what have I got to say to those kids?' And he said, 'You don't have to tell them what notes to sing. You tell them what it means to be a performer.'"
"The singers on the show have some of the most beautiful voices I’ve heard in public," she added. "This show has a real sweetness at its core. It’s not mean-spirited."
"You don’t get to see women doing slapstick too much, and in the movie you can see that we’re having a blast," she shared. "All the shackles were off, as Donald Trump likes to say, and we were allowed to be as wild as we wanted to be. It was a perfect storm of fun."
"For the life of me, I can’t understand why there’s not a sequel," she added, echoing the sentiments of Hocus Pocus fans around the world.
