While a biopic on  Avril Lavigne is yet to appear on the horizon, the Canadian music star already knows who she wants to play her - 'Twilight' actress Kristen Stewart.

On Tuesday, March 22, the 38-year old was asked on the red carpet of iHeartRadio awards whether she had anyone in mind to play her if a biopic on her was ever made. Lavigne did take a minute to think over it, but the second she had an answer, she said without missing a beat that it would have to be KristenStewart.

Fans also noted that back in December 2021, Lavigne hinted that she would consider turning her 2002 single "Sk8er Boi" into a movie.

On an episode of 'She Is The Voice', Lavigne said, "Recently with it being almost the 20th anniversary, a lot of people have been asking me to play this song on some TV shows, so it keeps getting brought back up and people will always reference it to me."

She then revealed that "Sk8er Boi" is in fact one of her favorite songs to perform in front of a live audience and then added, "I'm actually going to turn this song into a film… and take it to the next level." Further discussion revealed that this song was written by Lavigne when she was 17 and is based on her experiences in high school.

She says, "You know what it was like in high school, you have all the different groups and cliques, and there's like skaters, preps, jocks. It's kind of like a missed opportunity at love. The skater boy is in love with the preppy girl but like she's too cool for him but then five years from now she's feeding the baby and she's all alone and she wishes she would have followed her heart and not tried to live up to society's expectations."

Fan had a lot to say on the possibility of Stewart playing Lavigne in a biopic sometimes in the future. One user said, "Um, Avril thinks she is big enough for a biopic? Yeah, she had some hits. I don’t recall her being “legendary” or worthy enough for a movie about her contributions to music. Also, who’s going to play Chad from Nickelback? Maybe a VH1 movie? If that."

Another noted, "Avril has a wide range of high notes, is Kristen able to do that?"
