Angelina Jolie is reportedly being lined up to portray Nigella Lawson in a biopic about the TV chef's life.

The 38-year-old actress has apparently been approached to play the 54-year-old celebrity chef, according to The Sun newspaper.

A source told the newspaper: ''Angie had planned to take a lot of time off next year but this role is very tempting.

''She has been gripped like everyone else by all the drama surrounding Nigella these past few months and thinks she is a remarkable woman. The story has got it all - and she's as intrigued as anyone else by it.''

Nigella recently opened up about marriage breakdown and claims that she had used drugs, saying: "I have to be honest, to have not only your private life but distortions of your private life put on display is mortifying, but there are people going through an awful lot worse and to dwell on it would be self-pity, and I don't want to do that.''
