In “Dumplin'”, Jennifer Aniston plays Rosie Dickson, a former beauty pageant queen whose plus-size daughter, Willowdean (played by Danielle Macdonald), signs up for a beauty contest amid a struggle with body image and self-esteem.

Author Julie Murphy, who penned the original novel, has said that her story was inspired by some of Parton’s songs.

“I got a call sayin’ Jennifer Aniston had taken the book and was gonna make it into a movie,” Parton explained in a sit-down interview for a new CMT special. “I said, ‘I would love to do the music!’”
