Catherine Zeta Jones has apparently asked about the film rights to singer Susan Boyle's life story and sensational appearance on Britain's Got Talent.

A good likeness? How Catherine Zeta Jones might look like as Susan Boyle?

She'd need to tone down her famous sex appeal - and seriously cultivate her eyebrows.

Even so, Catherine Zeta Jones is said to be desperate to play Susan Boyle on screen. Mail Online reported.

Miss Zeta Jones, 39, has apparently asked about the film rights to the singer's life story and sensational appearance on Britain's Got Talent.

It is believed that Oscar-winning film director James Cameron, who was behind Titanic, has expressed an interest in a similar project.

Miss Boyle, a shy church volunteer from West Lothian, Scotland, has become a star in the U.S. after her performance of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables on the ITV show several weeks ago.

Footage of the performance has become the most viewed YouTube clip of all time with about 100million hits.

Miss Boyle has been dubbed the 'hairy angel' because of her frizzy hair cut and bushy eyebrows - and she claims to have never been kissed or had a boyfriend.

A source on Britain's Got Talent said of the Zeta Jones proposal: 'This is one of many requests we have had to play her [Miss Boyle], for movie deals and for stories of her life.

'All these people are coming out and want to be associated with her. She is the biggest thing in the world. It is mental.'

A spokesman for Miss Boyle said she was unwilling to comment.

Miss Zeta Jones's publicist in the U.S. said there were currently no plans for her to play Miss Boyle.
