Dell'Olio wants Cruz for biopic
Nancy Dell'Olio would like Penelope Cruz or Monica Bellucci to play her in a screen biopic.
The Italian lawyer, best known for her past relationship with former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, is writing her debut novel, inspired by her own life, and is in talks to follow this up with a TV film.
She already has an idea of who she'd like to portray her, telling the Daily Telegraph: "I have a few names in my mind - Monica Bellucci or Penelope Cruz."
She is also on the look-out for a handsome co-star to portray the love interest.
"It's too early to know who could play the love interest. Not Brad Pitt, I've more complicated taste - I need more brains," she added.
Nancy described the protagonist of the novel as a "very glamorous, beautiful Italian woman in England".
"It's inspired by my life. I'm working on the script for a television movie too," she added.
