Kylie Minogue has had a movie-worthy life between the soap operas, the locomotion, a comeback, and a battle with cancer. But it would probably be best, if said film is ever made, for Kylie to stay out of the casting process. When the singer was asked who she would want to play her in a film, Minogue offered, “I’ve been told Hilary Duff resembles me.
