Spears Inspires Paltrow's New Movie

London, Dec 18 (IANS) The media treatment of pop star Britney Spears inspired Gwyenth Paltrow starrer movie "Country Song", reveals director Shana Feste.

Feste has confessed it was the "Toxic" hitmaker Britney who gave her the idea for the movie, which sees Paltrow playing a country singer trying to resurrect her career while dealing with an addiction problem, reports mtv.com.

"That's where this movie came from. I mean, I was seeing what was happening in the media to Britney Spears," said Feste.

The director completed writing the script for the movie which also stars Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester when Michael Jackson died in 2009 and she admits the media portrayal of his death played on her mind.

"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," she said.
