Hmmm, seems like Aretha Franklin might have gotten a little ahead of herself. The singer called into the Wendy Williams show last week and named Halle Berry as a contender for the lead in her upcoming biopic. But, it seems like the actress isn’t too interested. Speaking With E! News on the Golden Globes red carpet, Berry dismissed rumors, citing her inability to sing as too big of an obstacle in undertaking the role. “If I could carry a tune, I’d consider it,” she says. “Someone should tell Aretha that I can’t do her justice.” Ouch. Sorry Miss Franklin! How about Jasmine Sullivan? Or Jennifer Hudson?
SN: With some makeup and weight, Halle could actually favor Aretha in this pic, huh?
