A movie about Halsey’s life has been in the works for three years, and the real-life making of it seems to be turning into a romantic movie within itself!
Back in 2018, Deadline reported that Sony Pictures closed a life rights deal with the singer/songwriter to develop a film loosely based on her life similar to Eminem’s 8 Mile, with Halsey starring as herself.
On Tuesday, a fan shared a screenshot of a 2018-dated article about the artist’s movie announcement on Twitter asking, “This lives in my mind, rent free. Why did this never happen???” Halsey wrote back the sweetest response, “bc alev was supposed to be writing it the past 3 years and we slowly fell in love instead. you know the rest!”

26-year-old Halsey revealed in late January on Instagram that she was pregnant and expecting her first child, and the father of her baby was later revealed as her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin, Billboard reports. The couple was first spotted together in public in October 2020. She set the record straight months later by letting critics know, “My pregnancy was 100% planned, and I tried very hard for this bb.”
She wore a rainbow crochet crop top in her pregnancy announcement that served as a subtle reminder of her previous pregnancy loss, with the expected child being a “rainbow baby.” Halsey opened up about suffering a miscarriage before she even had time to fully process she was pregnant in 2018. She also shared that she was battling endometriosis, which can cause infertility, and underwent surgery for it in 2017.
She decided to freeze her eggs in 2018. She said, “I need to be aggressive about protecting my fertility, about protecting myself.” Per Billboard, Halsey proudly showed off the scars on her lower abdomen from the surgery on her Instagram Story back in February. She wrote, “The scars that got me this angel #endowarrior.”
Here is her latest post from May 4:
Halsey previously starred as herself in a small cameo in 2018’s A Star Is Born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
