Dolly Parton Meets Her Drag Impersonator Jason Cosmo On Red Carpet At Premiere Of ‘Dumplin’
On Thursday, while on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of Dumplin’, Dolly Parton met her drag impersonator Jason Cosmo.
The two posed for the cameras and shared some giggles.
Parton was also joined by the film’s stars Danielle Macdonald and Jennifer Aniston.
Netflix’s new comedy film, which is based on the book of the same name, will feature music from Patron.
Recently in an ABC News interview, the music legend was asked if she had once said that it’s a good thing that she was born as a girl because otherwise, she would’ve been a drag queen.
“Yes, it is true. Because I’m so over-exaggerated and I have so many fans in the gay community, and the drag queens,” Parton said.
The “Jolene” singer also told Aniston, whose film features bisexual actress Cameron Dove and non-binary star Bex Taylor-Klaus, that “I’ve always had these drag queens dress like me. And I even lost a Dolly Parton lookalike contest.”
Aniston’s film, Dumplin’ is expected to follow a plus-sized teenage daughter of a former beauty queen, who signs up for her mom’s pageant as a protest which later escalates when other contestants begin following in her footsteps.
Dumplin’ is now available to stream on Netflix.
