If a Stevie Nicks biopic ever does get made, it doesn't sound like it will be starring Reese Witherspoon. In a new interview with ET Canada, the Fleetwood Mac singer says she'd like Witherspoon to play her on the big screen, but thinks it may be too late.

"I've already told her she's almost too old," Nicks, 64, said of the 37-year-old actress while attending the Toronto premiere of her new documentary, In Your Dreams.

And it sounds like Witherspoon, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of country singer June Carter Cash in the 2005 film Walk the Line, agreed with Nicks during a recent conversation. "I love her," the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member added of Witherspoon, "but she's like, 'I could play your mother.' I'm like, 'Okay.'"

Whether or not a movie about Nicks' life is even in the works, meanwhile, remains unclear.

In September 2011, the Grammy-winning "Stand Back" crooner shot down reports that a biopic about her eventual life -- her battles with drug addiction, her romance with bandmate Lindsay Buckingham and more -- was being developed. At the time, Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff were rumored to be in the running to play her.

"Nobody is making a movie about my life," Nicks told Us Weekly at the time. "When there is a movie about my life being made, everybody will know. And it will be serious. Everybody thinks they are making a movie about my life but it's not true."
