Halle Berry Doesn't Want To Play Aretha Franklin

Although Aretha Franklin personally requested Halle Berry to play her in a biopic, Halle Berry has turned the role down. There are many reasons to why Halle shouldn't play Aretha in a movie, but her reason is because she can't sing. She recently told reporters that she wouldn't do Aretha the justice that she deserves.

If I could carry a tune, I'd consider it.” 
 “Someone should tell Aretha that I can't do her justice.”

The problem with the above quote is Halle Berry has played singers in movies before. The real reasons Halle Berry should be turning the role down is because she looks nothing like Aretha Franklin. Halle is mixed while Aretha is not. Halle has always been skinny while Aretha has always been a thick girl.
Now on the other hand Halle should go on and do the role. She hasn't played in a black centered movie since the 90's. I think either Aretha Franklin will convince Halle Berry to take the role soon or Halle will just have a change of heart. After all, if singing is her only reason for turning the role down someone will remind her of a certain thing called lip-singing.
