Shawn Johnson, Dancing with the Stars


Shawn Johnson may be somersaulting onto the big screen.

The Olympic gymnast and recent Dancing With the Stars champ tells me she's mulling over the chance to break into acting in a big way...

"I got an offer for a movie," Johnson, 17, told me yesterday at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's A Time for Heroes Celebrity Carnival in L.A. "If I take them up on it, it'll be very exciting."

She didn't want to give too much away, but she revealed that it's a starring role in a kids flick.

Filmmakers have given her about a month to decide. "It's nerve-racking," she said. "I have a lot of decisions to make."

As for the broken disco ball trophy from Dancing With the Stars that she first told me about last week, Johnson was happy to report that she should have it back in a few days. "It will be home in about a week," she said. "It was an accident. Things happen."
