Jennifer also rocked Fendi and Bulgari jewels

She explained: "We had breakfast at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in New York City. That was our first sit-down meeting about me portraying her. And then, eight years after that, that's when she called me and said, 'I've made my decision, and it is you who I want to play me.'

"I was very excited in the moment that I learned that she wanted me to play her. But then, the next second, like, 'Oh my god. Like, it's Aretha Franklin. Where do you even start?' So, it's exciting, but the scariest thing at the same time."
