Rock royalty Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are making a film about their enduring love story.
With one of the longest marriages in showbiz – 38 years and counting – the couple have defied the odds to stay together following Ozzy’s substance abuse, sex addiction and extra marital affairs.
Ozzy, 71, who revealed this week he has been battling Parkinson’s since 2003, admitted manager wife Sharon is masterminding their move to the big screen.
He said: “Don’t ask me anything about it.
“My family are involved and I said to my wife, good luck. I nearly lost her a few times but you learn by your mistakes."
He added: “We stuck together and it’s good. It’s a pretty boring existence ‘happily ever after’.
Former X Factor judge Sharon hopes the project will focus on their relationship rather than Ozzy’s wild antics as the frontman of Black Sabbath.
His most infamous stunt was biting the head off a dead bat during a gig in the eighties.
Sharon, 67, said: “People thought I was insane trying to get a movie done on Ozzy.
“Our story is a love story and it happens that he’s a musician. We’re working in our own quiet way, doing our own thing on that.
“It’s totally different to what anybody would think.”
The project comes after the box office success of Freddie Mercury and Elton John biopics Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman.
Last month Ozzy spoke for the first time on being diagnosed with Parkin 2, a rare form of Parkinson’s but has now admitted his illness has been with him for 17 years.
He takes medication for tremors, which can cause short-term memory loss, but is refusing to let it hold him back.
Ozzy, speaking to the LA Times, said: “I’m not dying from Parkinson’s.
“I've been working with it, most of my life. I've cheated death so many times.
“If tomorrow you read, ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him’.”
