Damn, Aretha was fine in this throwback pic above, but Halle Berry still hasn’t signed on to play her in her biopic. ReRe has been quite adamant about using Halle for the part and is not backing down…this has been going on for 3 years now, SMH:
Aretha Franklin wants Halle Berry to show her some R-E-S-P-E-C-T and sign on to portray a younger version of the Queen of Soul in an upcoming biopic. The 68-year-old singing legend sent out a press release this week revealing her choices for Hollywood stars to play top roles in a planned film about her life and career.
Besides Berry, Franklin says she wants another Academy Award winner – Denzel Washington – to play her father, the late C.L. Franklin, a prominent Baptist minister and civil rights leader in Detroit.
