Jennifer covered the publication to speak about her incredible role as the queen of soul Aretha Franklin in Respect, which was released last week.

"I feel like that's where the respect comes from, when you can value what it is you have and let that light shine," she explained.

"And for me, that's the whole premise of Respect. Once Aretha found her light, her voice, and she used it for herself, that's when we got our queen of soul."

She added that the role had "inspired" her to own "own mine that much more" and that "finding" and "celebrating that" was key.
