Aretha Franklin is really advocating that Halle Berry plays the Queen of Soul in her upcoming biopic. Halle Berry in as kind of manner as possible, explained that she didn’t see how that would work considering she could not sing. But, we all know what Halle Berry was really trying to say. Basically, it would be a stretch for Halle Berry to play Aretha Franklin, and the movie actually seem believable and not pure fiction or fantasy.
Well, Aretha Franklin is not buying the singing excuse, and wrote Wendy Williams a response to Halle Berry. Read the response when you continue…
I would have liked Halle Berry to portray an older Aretha in my upcoming biopic…She was my first choice, everything subject to negotiations, and she shouldn’t underestimate her own talent. There are a number of other leading ladies out there, that can definitely handle the role. I never expected Halle to sing, she’s an actress, not a singer. Many actress have portrayed vocalist by lypsynching to the artist original recordings.
My question is: Why is Aretha Franklin trying to be Halle Berry? Something is strange here. I would think you would want the best actress for the job, and one that happens to sing, but to each his own. Watch as Wendy Williams suggest other actresses, like Jennifer Hudson or Queen Latifah.
