Gwyneth Paltrow stars in a new movie, “Country Strong,” playing a struggling country star dealing with addiction.
Inspired by Britney.
Writer/director, Shana Feste, tells the LA Times the movie is about building up a star just to see their downfall.
“That’s where this movie came from. I mean, I was seeing what was happening in the media to Britney Spears,” Feste told the Ministry at a Los Angeles screening of the film.
“I finished the script when Michael Jackson passed away. I think it’s tragic how we treat people who give us so much, and we love to see them knocked down to build them back up again, to knock them down again.”
“It’s a weird fascination.”
