For what it’s worth, there are reports floating around that producers want Angelina Jolie to play Nigella Lawson in a dramatic film chronicling the Domestic Goddess’s life. There’s certainly a lot of material to work with: In the past year, the star of The Taste got divorced after a public choking incident and admitted to dabbling in cocaine during a nasty fraud trial. The report claims that the biopic will be released next year, which seems about as likely as Anne Hathaway playing Ruth Reichl, or Gwyneth Paltrow portraying Gabrielle Hamilton. [NYDN]
