WASHINGTON - – Britney Spears takes a back seat to Barack Obama on an upcoming "Entertainment Tonight" segment as the Democratic presidential candidate chats about his favorite movies and stars.
His top films are three Oscar winners — "The Godfather," "The Godfather: Part II" and "Lawrence of Arabia." Obama says his favorite actors are Jimmy Stewart, Spencer Tracy, Humphrey Bogart, Meryl Streep, Susan Sarandon and Angela Bassett.
Will Smith is Obama's pick to play him if a movie is made about his life, something the two have discussed.
"Will and I have talked about this because he has the ears!" the Illinois senator said in an interview slated to air Tuesday and Wednesday.
But campaigning doesn't leave much time for him to watch movies. It's hard enough eating three, healthy meals a day, he said.
"Sometimes when you're out in remote areas, there's not much you can do," Obama said. "You go for a burger, that's safe. If you start getting fancy you could get into trouble. If you're in a place like Iowa or Wisconsin there's gonna be cheese on just about everything. If you start eating too much junk you'll never survive."
