Halle Berry Declines Offer To Play Aretha Franklin
Uh-oh! Although the queen of soul, Aretha Franklin has her mind made up on who she wants to play her in a biopic, Halle Berry is "respectfully" declining the offer.
Halle told E! News on the red carpet that she can’t sing worth a lick and that would be key to her taking the role.
Halle stated, “If I could carry a tune, I’d consider it,” she says. “Someone should tell Aretha that I can’t do her justice.”
However, in 1998 Berry played the singer Zola Taylor, one of the three wives of pop singer Frankie Lymon, in the biopic Why Do Fools Fall in Love. Also, in 1999 Berry played Dorthy Dandridge.
But she may feel more is required to take on playing the Queen Of Soul.
