Filming Begins on the Unauthorized Britney Spears Lifetime Biopic

Britney Spears on Dating: 'It's Silly'
Britney Spears, we totally get where you're coming from.

Filming has officially begun on the unauthorized Lifetime biopic of the one and only, Britney Spears.

Australian actress Natasha Bassett was given the honor of being cast as the young pop princess, and she showed off her acting chops as the paparazzi snapped photos eerily similar to ones they’d taken of Spears years ago. First, Basset took on Spears as a mom as she played in the park with young Sean Preston and Jayden Federline lookalikes.

Next, Bassett was seen spending time with a young Justin Timberlake, played by Nathan Keyes. Then Bassett took on the darker side of celebrity, as she filmed a scene of Spears leaving a doctor’s office with a baby in tow, screaming at the paparazzi to leave her alone.

Spears may not have authorized the upcoming TV movie, but they sure got the outfits down.
