Marie Osmond thinks Selena Gomez is the perfect actress to portray her in a future biopic or miniseries, E! News reported.

The 63-year-old multi-hyphenate spoke to the outlet Monday and recalled becoming a child star at the tender age of 3 and expressed her gratitude for all the experiences she's had in her long career in the industry.

When asked if she had a particular actress in mind whom she'd like to portray her in a biopic or a miniseries about her life, Marie answered, "I think Selena Gomez would be amazing, only because she has been through a lot of the things that I've been through."

"I think it's nice to have a child's perspective as being an entertainer," she added. "Because it's very different."

Marie is the youngest sibling in the successful musical group Osmond Brothers. She released "Paper Roses" in 1973, and it dominated two Billboard charts. She released another album in 1974, and it featured two duets with her older brother, Donny Osmond: "I'm Leaving it All Up to You " and "Morning Side of the Mountain." Both reached the top 10 of the pop charts. In 1975, Marie and Donny then hosted a special variety show, which eventually became a weekly variety show, "Donny & Marie," in 1976.

Meanwhile, Gomez also began her career as a child star, starring on the kids' show "Barney & Friends." As a teenager, she appeared in "The Wizards of Waverly Place," "Another Cinderella Story" and "Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie," among others.

In the same interview, Marie shared that she had not missed anything even though she started working very early. "I don't look at life that way. I look at what's positive. I like to dwell on that more than what I missed," she said.

At the height of her career, Marie was able to work with Hollywood legends Sonny & Cher, Lucille Ball and Bob Hope whom she said had given her advice on maintaining a career in the entertainment industry.

"They approached it as a job and that everybody around them was just as important, and to work really hard," she said. "There was no entitlement. There was none of that. It was a job, and to keep improving and improving, and I think that's one of the reasons that I'm still around."

On the work front, Marie is starring in a musical event titled "A Marie Osmond Symphonic Christmas" alongside the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra at the Edward W. Powers Auditorium in Ohio on Dec. 8.
