Dolly appeared in a cameo role as herself in the 2005 film "Miss Congeniality 2--Armed and Fabulous" starring Sandra Bullock who plays an FBI agent investigating a case in Las Vegas. During the investigation, Bullock’s character tackles Dolly after mistaking her for a suspicious impersonator.
Bullock explained how she got Dolly to accept the role, which includes some comic groping. She said,
“I sent her a letter with a lot of ‘pleases’ in it, and she wrote back saying ‘OK.’ It always freaks me out when things are easy, because I'm used to having to beg and going for the alternate choices.”
