Bethenny Frankel's new book, "Skinnydipping."

Did you ever imagine who would play you in a movie version of your life? Bethenny Frankel has and she’d pick Mila Kunis!

The Skinnygirl creator has a new book, “Skinnydipping,” that has stirred interest from production companies who now have an interest in turning the fictional work, loosely based on Bethenny’s life, into a movie!

“I’ve been approached for the book to be a film and a television series,” Frankel, 41, told the Associated Press in a recent interview. “My gut says it really is a film; maybe later it could be a TV series. It has the arc, the story, the characters to be a film.”

While we would love to see this turned into a TV series (we’d get 100 hours rather than 2), we couldn’t help but put our minds to the test and cast the parts of Bethenny, husband Jason Hoppy, baby Bryn, Dr. Xavier Amador, and assitant Julie Plake!

Take a look at who we cast below and tell us who you’d pick!

  • Bethenny Frankel 1 of 20

    The title role of Bethenny would have to be filled with a strong, independent woman who has great looks, a fiery attitude, and a loving heart.
  • Sophia Bush as Bethenny 2 of 20

    If you happened to watch season 5 of 'One Tree Hill,' you're well aware that Sophia Bush can pull off the role of a woman running a million-dollar empire.
  • Demi Moore as Bethenny 3 of 20

    If we were to cast Bethenny at her present-day age, we'd cast Demi Moore. She is fierce, but soft - all at the right moments.
  • Mila Kunis as Bethenny 4 of 20

    Bethenny suggests Mila herself and we couldn't agree more with this choice.
  • Bryn Hoppy 5 of 20

    Bryn is undeniably cute and we'd have to cast an equally adorably tot!
  • Suri Cruise as Bryn 6 of 20
    Suri Cruise as Bryn
    Suri may be a brunette, but with her parents both as high-profile actors, she could definitely pull off the role.
  • Shiloh Jolie-Pitt as Bryn 7 of 20
    Shiloh Jolie-Pitt as Bryn
    Shiloh has the right hair color and the charm to act as Bryn with a tomboy flair!
  • Stella McDermott as Bryn 8 of 20

    Stella is a star in the making. This photo could even serve as her headshot. You're hired!
  • Jason Hoppy 9 of 20
    Jason Hoppy
    Jason laid back, but strong personality. He's also tall and extremely good looking.
  • Ashton Kutcher as Jason 10 of 20
    Ashton Kutcher as Jason
    Ashton would do an amazing job as Jason. Hey, he even has proven chemistry with Mila Kunis and Demi Moore. (Two of our picks for Bethenny!)
  • Ryan Reynolds as Jason 11 of 20
    Ryan Reynolds as Jason
    Ryan is drop dead hot! He'd play an excellent Jason.
  • Matthew Morrison as Jason 12 of 20
    Matthew Morrison as Jason
    There is also Matthew Morrison, who is underestimated as an actor. We'd love to see him play Jason.
  • Dr. Xavier Amador 13 of 20
    Dr. Xavier Amador
    We couldn't cast a movie without having Dr. Xavier Amador in the picture.
  • James Earl Jones as Dr. Amador 14 of 20
    James Earl Jones as Dr. Amador
    How excellent is this choice?
  • Bill Gates as Dr. Amador 15 of 20
    Bill Gates as Dr. Amador
    Bill Gates may not be an actor, but he's a dead ringer for Dr. Amador.
  • Anthony Stewart Head as Dr. Amador 16 of 20
    Anthony Stewart Head as Dr. Amador
    All you 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' fans will appreciate this pick.

    The cute and adorable Julie was an easy part to cast.
  • Bethany Joy Galeotti as Julie 18 of 20

    Coming fresh off of 'One Tree Hill,' Bethany's schedule is all clear!
  • Hilary Duff as Julie 19 of 20

    How perfect would it be to get Hilary Duff as Julie?
  • Haylie Duff as Julie 20 of 20
