Judge Judy reveals surprising choice for actor to play her in biopic

Judge Judy Sheindlin has a casting suggestion if a biopic is ever made about her life.

The television courtroom judge says although she’d prefer not to have a film made about her life — and one has not been confirmed — if she had to choose someone to play her, it would be Reese Witherspoon.

“We’re friends, and she gets me, and I know she does,” Sheindlin, 80, told E! News, adding that she thinks the Oscar-winner is a “fabulous lady.”

“And I think she’s a great actress, and I think she could — if they did, which I would not like — I think that she could carry that off,” she said of making a movie with the 46-year-old star taking the lead.

“Judge Judy” went off the air after 25 seasons in July 2021 following Sheindlin’s cutting ties with CBS.

The iconic daytime TV star went on to launch “Judge Justice” in 2021 — a digital sequel to “Judge Judy” — on Amazon’s Freevee, and it’s since generated more than 75 million streaming hours in the US and the UK.

Sheindlin doesn’t see herself retiring anytime soon, she told the Hollywood Reporter in 2021, adding that she was enjoying making the spin-off, in which her granddaughter, Sarah Rose, appears alongside her.

“I don’t play golf or tennis. I have no desire to learn how to play mahjong, chess or checkers. I know what I like to do,” Sheindlin told the outlet. “Why, at my stage in life, would I try to find something else when I already know what I like?”
