I don't think I could handle fame - Amy

A new trailer for an Amy Winehouse movie shows footage of the star predicting she "wasn't going to be very famous" and saying "she'd never handle it (fame)".

The movie, titled Amy, has been directed by Asif Kapadia, the man behind the much-acclaimed Senna.

In the trailer Winehouse can be seen singing and also talking to the camera.

"Singing was always important to me but I never thought 'Oh, I'll end up singing, I'll be a singer'," she says.

"I wouldn't write anything unless it was directly personal to me, just because I wouldn't be able to tell the story right. I'm not a girl trying to be a star or anything other than a musician."

When asked "How big do you think you're going to be?", she replies: "I don't. I don't think I'm going to be at all famous. I don't think I could handle it, I would probably go mad..."

Winehouse died tragically at the age of 27 in July 2011 from alcohol poisoning.
