Sia revealed she’d originally cast Shia LaBeouf in her upcoming movie, Music, before switching to Kate Hudson.

In an interview with Studio 10 on Thursday, the 44-year-old singer said Shia was supposed to have played Kate’s character, Zu.

‘I was going to do a narrative film, and in fact, Shia LaBeouf was cast to play Kate’s character,’ she revealed.

But Sia said she changed her mind after stumbling across a video of Kate, 41, singing a Christmas carol in a video posted to Instagram.

‘I asked for a meeting with her, and she said she was born to do it. She could sing, she could dance, she could do it all,’ explained Sia. 

‘I liked the tone of her voice. I said, “Would you shave your head?” and she said yes, and Bob’s your uncle.’

The movie is a musical-drama about an autistic girl who’s sent to live with her drug dealer half-sister after the death of her grandmother, and also stars Maddie Ziegler and Leslie Odom Jr.

It’s the first venture into films for the Chandelier singer, who directed and co-wrote the movie.

In an unusual move, Sia ditched her trademark oversized wigs and showed off her heavily made up face for her interview with Studio 10. 

'I asked for a meeting with her, and she said she was born to do it. She could sing, she could dance, she could do it all,' explained Sia. Pictured together at an Amazon Studios party in LA in December 2017

She wore her long peroxide blonde locks in a casual wavy style, and accessorised with an oversized headband on her head.

When asked why she decided to show her face during the interview, Sia said: ‘I think when you are talking about feelings, you should be able to see someone’s eyes.’ 

But she joked that she was still technically wearing a disguise, and wouldn’t run to Target in her chosen ensemble.
