I Don’t Think Aretha Franklin Wants Jennifer Hudson to Play Her

March 15, 2007 / Posted by:

Aretha Franklin has confirmed that she’s in talks with several studios about a biopic of her life story. Aretha also said that Jennifer Hudson was in talks to play her and I don’t think she’s really loving it. Access Hollywood asked Aretha about the Oscar-winner playing her and she sort of didn’t answer the question.

Aretha said, “The producers want to know how I feel about it, about her playing me. What I’d like to see is three different people playing me. Perhaps someone playing me from the age of 25 to about 40 and then someone else beyond that.”

They are going to need 3 people to play just one of her, because homegirl is large!
