New Britney Spears Biopic Photos Unveiled, Recreate Pop Star's Wedding to Kevin Federline
By Latifah Muhammad
Lifetime has released new photos from its upcoming Britney Spears biopic, a day ahead of the pop princess's 35th birthday.
On Thursday, the cable network debuted several pics that show actress Natasha Bassett, who plays Spears, recreating both personal and professional moments in the GRAMMY winner's life including her wedding to Kevin Federline and romance with Justin Timberlake.
Bassett and actor Clayton Chitty, who plays Federline, are all smiles in shots depicting the former couple's wedding day. Other pics feature Bassett posing for a photo shoot and snuggling up to Timberlake, played by Nathan Keyes.
In an exclusive interview with ET, Basset dished on how she prepared for the film, while expressing her "respect" for Spears.
"I have a huge amount of respect for Britney and for her career," Bassett said. "I listened to her music so much growing up. I have videos of me as a tween practicing her songs in the mirror with a hairbrush in my hand."
The 23-year-old Aussie admitted that she wasn't a dancer prior to the film, but prepared for the role by immersing herself in "Britneyland."
"I really hope she watches the movie, because I think she'd really enjoy it," Bassett said. "It's really a love letter to her and to her story, so I really hope she watches it and I just wish her all the happiness in the world."
Lifetime will debut Britney in February 2017.
