Cher reveals she wanted to make a movie about Winston Churchill's wife before Trudie Styler snagged the book rights: 'Sting’s wife got to it first'

Cher once dreamed of making a movie about Clementine Churchill.

The 73-year-old singer-actress said she fell in love with the story of the wife of Winston Churchill while listening to an audiobook about her life, in an interview with WSJ Magazine

'Clementine: The Life of Mrs. Winston Churchill…that one is really one of the great stories of all time,' she said of the book by Sonia Purnell.

Said the If I Could Turn Back Time hitmaker: 'I loved it so much that I wanted to make a movie about it, but Sting’s wife got to it first.'

IMDb shows that Trudie Styler is set to serve as a producer on 'Untitled Clementine Churchill Biopic' which does not yet have a release date.

It will be written by The Good Lie scribe Margaret Nagle and produced by Styler's company, Maven Pictures.

Clementine Ogilvy Spencer-Churchill was born in 1885 in Mayfair, London and was married to legendary British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill from 1908 until his death in 1965. 

She organised canteens for munitions workers during World War I and was Chairman of the Red Cross Aid to Russia Fund during World War II.

She died in 1977 at the age of 92, having outlived her husband by almost 13 years, as well as three of her five children.

Cher also spoke about her bedtime routine, admitting she doesn't have a set bedtime: 'Bed happens when it happens'. 

'I just fall asleep in my workout clothes or nothing at all,' continued the Academy Award winning actress. 

'But I also like my onesies. I have two of them: a fuzzy one that my kids gave me and a cotton one that Jesse Jo [Stark] from Chrome Hearts gave me.' 

'That one’s so fabulous I’ve worn it out a couple of times.'
