She was butchered along with four other people with cult leader Charles eventually being jailed for the crimes.

Speaking to TMZ , Debra said she would prefer Australian actress Margot Robbie to play Sharon over Oscar winner Jen.

"Not that I have anything against her, but she’s not pretty enough to play Sharon,” Debra, 64, said.

“And the way she even carries herself is similar to that of Sharon,” she continued.

"Physical beauty wouldn’t be so important but Sharon’s six years of her public life were all based on that incredibly beautiful, natural, perfect look in both soul, heart and spirit. So that’s what I’m looking to try to capture.”

While Kate Bosworth has reportedly been attached to play Sharon in a biopic of her life said to be directed by Michael Polish.
