Recall back in January, when Halle Berry was asked by about her participation in Aretha Franklin’s biopic film (as already documented, Ms Berry was Aretha’s first choice to play her in the film), and she responded stating, “I can’t sing! If I could carry a tune, I’d consider it. Someone should tell Aretha that I can’t do her justice.”
Much to Aretha Franklin’s chagrin, I’m sure, who, in an interview posted on USA Today’s website, had this to say about Halle’s response: “[I] never expected (Berry) to sing. It was more about her likeness, and the fact that she has (acting) experience. But I guess she wasn’t confident in her ability to lip-sync.”
Ok, um… was that a diss from Aretha directed at Halle, specifically the part about her not being confident in her ability to lip-sync, or am I just startin’ somethin’ here? :)
In the same write-up, Aretha seems to suggest that she already has a director attached to the project, but she won’t name him/her… now I’m wondering who it could be.
