Dolly Parton says she experienced deja vu playing a dancer turned talk show host in her new movie “Straight Talk.” The country singer said she beat out actresses including Julia Roberts, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn because the role of a Southern woman who goes after her dreams was meant for her.

“This character is not separate from me in any way,” Parton said last week. “There sometimes, between takes, when it would be just like deja vu.”
