Shane Filan stole the hearts of millions across the globe almost a decade ago with infamous boy band Westlife. Fast forward to 2018 and he's set to do the same with his collection of timeless love songs in his solo career - from You and Me, Right Here, to his latest - Love Always.
In this exclusive interview, Marie Claire chats with the Irish singer-songwriter about the power of social media and getting Jennifer Lawrence to play the lead in Love Always.
If Love Always was a movie, who would play the lead?
The star – probably Leonardo DiCaprio, someone not too big. And what’s the blonde one’s name, the one who is in all the movies now…
Jennifer Lawrence! You know what, I’d go for Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. Silver Linings Playbook. The movie will have to be set in Ireland, wouldn’t it? Maybe he goes away to Malaysia. He’s fallen out of love with her, but then he comes back. And he becomes the eternal flame… [laughs] He dies somewhere, not Malaysia. Maybe she dies. Maybe they both die and they love always, forever. Copyright this, we’re writing the movie. Ring Jennifer, ring her.
