Judge Judy reveals a surprising decision for an actor to play her in a biopic

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

The TV court judge says while she’d prefer not to have a film made about her life — and one hasn’t been confirmed — if she had to pick someone to play her, it would be Reese Witherspoon.

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

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

“Judge Judy” went off the air after 25 seasons in July 2021 after Sheindlin severed ties with CBS.

The legendary daytime TV star launched Judge Justice – a digital sequel to Judge Judy – on Amazon’s Freevee in 2021 and has since generated more than 75 million streaming hours in the US and UK.

Sheindlin doesn’t see her retirement anytime soon, she told the Hollywood Reporter in 2021, adding that she enjoyed working on the spin-off, which her granddaughter Sarah Rose stars alongside her.

“I don’t play golf or tennis. I don’t feel like learning mahjong, chess or checkers. I know what I like to do,” Sheindlin told the outlet. “Why should I try to find something different in my life phase when I already know what I like?”
