When Billie Eilish hosted Saturday Night Live in December 2021, she admitted that, as a kid, she wanted to be an actor.
“My mom and dad were both actors, and so was my brother Finneas, and it was my dream to be in a movie,” she said in her monologue. But when her mom wrote and starred in an autobiographical movie about a mother and son—no daughter!—Eilish “got the hint.”
That said, she killed her SNL appearance, proving that her mom should have considered putting Eilish in that movie, after all. Since then, Eilish has been busy dating a boy, touring, releasing new music, putting out new fragrances, and designing new Nikes; fitting another acting gig into that packed schedule seemed impossible.
