Quentin Taratino is set to be making a movie about the Manson murders, which means casting someone to play the role of Sharon Tate. Well when it comes down to it, Sharon’s sister Debra says that if it came down to Margot Robbie or Jennifer Lawrence the choice is clear.The sister of late actress Sharon Tate thinks that despite Jennifer Lawrence winning an Oscar, the “Joy” star lacks the stunning beauty necessary to tackle the role of Sharon in an upcoming Quentin Tarantino film. “Not that I have anything against her, but she’s not pretty enough to play Sharon,” Debra Tate told TMZ. According to Debra, Margot Robbie has the chops and beauty to play Sharon Tate in a Quentin Tarantino movie about the Manson murders, but Jennifer Lawrence…not so much. According to a report…Tarantino’s putting finishing touches on a script for the Manson project, and both actresses are in the running for roles, though it’s not clear who they’d play. Script details are scant but one of the stories centers on Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969. Debra also said she has not heard a peep from Tarantino…which could be a problem because she owns the rights to her sister Sharon’s image and likeness.
