Amy WinehouseHer dad supports the actress playing his daughter in an upcoming biopic … even if some people think she’s a doppelgänger for Amy.
Marisa Abela She landed a coveted role in “Back to Black” … but the first pictures from her set released this month — shocker — have flooded social media with hateful comments.😲
Angry fans slammed Marissa as a low-budget Amy who looked nothing like the late singer.
But Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse — even the executor of her estate — disagrees with TMZ … Marissa is a great choice for the role, even if she doesn’t look like Amy.
The way Mitch sees it, Marissa is Marissa and Amy is Amy … so it’s no big deal if they’re not mirror images.
Eddie Marsan plays Amy’s dad in the movie, and Mitch notes that Eddie isn’t like him either.
Amy’s dad says he puts too much emphasis on looks… because there are plenty of Hollywood examples of actors not looking like their real-life characters.
What Mitch remembers is “day and night,” where it’s beautiful Gary Grant He plays a famous music composer and lyricist Cole PorterNot considered beautiful.
The internet may not agree, but Amy’s dad is in Marissa’s cast.
