The Legally Blonde star's music career didn't exactly take off, but her acting dreams became a reality and she tells her heroine Dolly in a new InStyle interview she always knew she'd be famous - like the Jolene singer.

"I was skipping around the blacktop at school by myself, and my P.E. teacher said, 'Why aren’t you playing the game (with the other kids)?’ I said, ‘Well, I’m not going to play the game because, Ms. Wright, I’m going to be Dolly Parton when I grow up'".
