Aretha Franklin Reveals She May Be Halle Berry’s Not So Distant Relative

Post By RelatedRelated Post

It has only been a few days since it was revealed that Halle Berry is related to former Republican vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, and now it has been revealed that Halle Berry could be tied to yet another celebrity.

Aretha Franklin has also come forward as a possible relative of  the Academy Award-winning actress.

Franklin, an 18 time Grammy award winner, announced, in a press release, that she is looking into the claims of a family member who says that Franklin and Berry’s grandmothers were first cousins.

If the claim turns out to be true, it would probably make the Queen of Soul very happy since she has been known to say that Berry reminds her of her younger self. Franklin has also been quoted as saying that she wanted Berry to play her in her biopic which is in the making.

In spite of Franklin’s desire for Berry to play the lead role in her biopic, Berry has said that she would not accept the role if it were offered. In a 2011 interview with E! News, Berry said,

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

Maybe when Halle Berry finds out that her and Aretha Franklin may be related she will reconsider her decision.

  1. Eventhough Halle Berry has not responded to the possibility of her and Aretha Franklin being relatives, deep down inside, I doubt Halle Berry would even care. In other words, yes, for Palin, no, for Franklin. If I was Aretha Franklin, I would not bother to do the research. Also, what is Franklin seeing in Berry that reminds her of her younger self? They have nothing in common.

  2. There is nothing wrong with aretha franklin very beautiful soul sister halle berry beautiful also don't have to have anything in common if they r kin good

  3. It is ridicilous the fixation Aretha has on Halle Berry. She basiically begged her to play her in a movie. And Halle respectfully turned it down. And now this thing about being distant, and I mean distant cousin. What a shame for the Godmother of Soul.
