    Let's face it. It's only a matter of time before a movie is made about Nigella Lawson. Especially given what the TV chef has gone through over the last several months—from the headline-making alleged choking incident involving her now ex-husband Charles Saatchi to the highly-publicized trial involving two former assistants, during which the 54-year-old's alleged drug use became a major focal point.

    And while The Sun is reporting that such a project is supposedly in the works, with Angelina Jolie as the apparent front-runner, a rep for Lawson tells E! News, "We are not aware of a movie being made and would not comment further."

    Nevertheless, like we said, it's surely only a matter of time. So, which Hollywood actresses do we think has what it takes to play the Domestic Goddess? Here are our top five picks.

    Angelina Jolie: Sure, the project might be non-existent right now, but we certainly understand why the Oscar winner's name is being thrown around. Not only is she one of Tinseltown's biggest stars, but Brad Pitt's other half has proven time and again she can play a wide range of roles.

    Catherine Zeta-Jones In addition to looking a bit like Lawson, Zeta-Jones already has some experience playing a chef. After all, she did just that in the 2007 flick No Reservations opposite Aaron Eckhart.

    Kate Winslet: At 38, the Labor Day star might seem a bit on the young side, but then again, hello, this is Kate Winslet we're talking about here. Not to mention, we kinda, sorta already made this argument once before.

    Sandra Bullock: Given the box-office success of just her last two movies alone—The Heat and Gravity—producers would be wise to approach the highly bankable star.

    Rachel Weisz: British? Check. Resemblance? Check. Talent? Check. What's more, maybe she could even convince hubby Daniel Craig to play Saatchi!
