Sharon Osbourne has revealed she wants Carey Mulligan to play her in a film.

There is talk of Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne's autobiography I Am Ozzy being made into a movie, and Sharon, who was his manager as well as being his wife, joked to Hello! magazine he wants Denzel Washington to play him, while she wants Angelina Jolie.

Sharon said: "Can you imagine him [Denzel] in the little round glasses with a Brummie accent? As for me, well it would have to be Angelina Jolie ... seriously, though, I'd love Carey Mulligan to play me - she was absolutely fantastic in An Education."

Asked who he'd really like to play him, Ozzy told The Guardian: "I quite fance Robert Downey Jr - he'd be great at the accent."

The 57-year-old America's Got Talent judge has published two autobiographies, Extreme and Survivor, and is about to publish her first novel, Revenge.

She told Hello! of Ozzy's book: "It was me who encouraged him to write the book but he really only skimmed the surface of his life.

"I Am Ozzy is a really funny, great read. I've known Ozzy for 40 years now and he has so many hilarious stories to tell. He should write more. I hope he'll do a second book."
