The National Enquirer swears Halle Berry is “fuming” over being passed over for the Aretha Franklin biopic, despite conflicting reports that the actress actually turned down the role.

Early on in the process, Franklin famously wanted Berry to play her on the big screen, even gushing to Wendy Williams, “Halle Berry is my pick.”

But our spies say that Berry declined the offer a while back, which made room for Jennifer Hudson to be seriously considered. J-Hud is reportedly ready to sign on, with the film now being fast-tracked by the producers of “Straight Outta Compton.”

But, the Enquirer is quoting an insider that claims Halle is “heartsick” that she was “passed over.”

    Jennifer Hudson is better suited to play the role anyway. It’s not like Halle Berry can’t even sing much less she to light anyway. J. Hudson is the best pick hands down!
