Although "Grease" star Olivia Newton-John has had a career that spans decades, she knows that she'll always be seen as Sandy.

“It is so loved by people,” Newton-John said about the iconic film. “I was actually nervous to do the part because I had made a movie in England that was a bit of a disaster. I asked if I could do a screen test to make sure I could pull it off. I was all of 29 and was worried I couldn’t look 18. You look back now and go, "What?" But at the time, it's all relative.”

But 34 years after she first put on those skintight, black leather pants, Newton-John has a few ideas in mind about who could play Sandy 2.0.

“Someone asked me that last night and I said Taylor Swift,” she said. “But my daughter would be exceptional at that role. She sings my songs so well. She’s stunning, she could do it. I don’t know if they will even do it but we will see.”
