Parton apparently hasn't been giving in very easily to Cyrus's interest in playing her role. Although there has been a great deal of controversy surrounding Cyrus due to her often sexually provocative twerking acts, nevertheless the media gave her a lot of positive coverage during her Bangerz Tour. Furthermore, according to the International Business Times Cyrus has become a “teen queen” and “idol of an entire generation." But Parton still isn't making it easy for Cyrus to get her role.

A source says Cyrus remains intent on landing the role of Parton. She has been bugging Parton for the role. It is said Cyrus has been sending Parton a lot of audition tapes for the part. Still Parton has been looking into other actresses for this role. Surprisingly Parton has even said Cyrus she really doesn’t have what it takes to portray her in her biopic.

Although Parton continues to refuse to give her god daughter the role, she apparently still has a lot of faith in the potential for Cyrus's future. Parton says she's convinced Cyrus is going to make the right choices for her career. Parton sees Cyrus as being gifted and special even though she has at times done some drastic things just to prove a point about her talents. Parton says she too pushed hard to make a name for herself and stand out when she was breaking into the entertainment industry.

Cyrus nevertheless still wants the role of Parton so bad she actually appears desperate over this desire reports Cyrus appears concerned the role may go to Scarlett Johansson according to sources. Parton may also be considering Kristin Chenoweth or Jessica Simpson for the role. Nevertheless, it appears as if her god daughter, Cyrus, with her many talents, might still be the best choice for this role.
