Shania Twain: ‘I would definitely add an Oscar to my bucket list’

Country music superstar Shania Twain has added an Oscar win to her bucket list after falling in love with her new acting career.

The Still The One hitmaker made her big screen debut opposite John Travolta in 2019 action film Trading Paint, and has now teamed up with Gary Sinise for upcoming movie, I Still Believe, in which she portrays the mother of Christian musician Jeremy Camp.

Working alongside the two Hollywood veterans proved to be valuable masterclasses for Shania, who credits the stars for helping to bring out her acting talent.

“They are both so experienced as actors, and they influenced me a lot. I learned a lot from them,” she tells syndicated columnist Allison Kugel. “They were kind and very helpful and made me feel very much at ease, and I just loved being on the set.

“John Travolta made me feel very comfortable, and a film set is somewhere I feel I belong. It comes to me very naturally. I have no nerves about it or anything like that.”

The singer-turned-actress admits she had never harboured onscreen dreams before tackling Trading Paint, and now she is hooked.

“I really would love to do more on film, so it sparked an interest I didn’t realize I had,” she explains. “It’s a newfound joy in my life where I can be creative and step out of myself like no other element in my career.”

And Shania is so determined to build up her acting resume, she is hoping it will one day lead to a big win at the Academy Awards.

She smiles, “It would be fun to get an Oscar… That would be a bucket list thing, of course! Why not? I would definitely add an Oscar to my bucket list.”
