Not only is Jennifer an accomplished singer, but she's also a talented actress and will be playing the soul legend Aretha Franklin in upcoming biopic, Respect, which is scheduled for release in August.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Empire star reflected on the time that she once met Aretha.

"We met in New York," the star told the publication. "And one of the first things she said to me was 'You're going to win another Oscar for playing me, right?'

"Imagine Aretha Franklin looking you in the face and saying that. I was like 'Eh, uh, eh… I can try."

Speaking about how she tackled the role of such an iconic singer, Jennifer explained: "Aretha was a very subtle person. It wasn't a lot of big gestures, whereas I'm far more expressive…

"She had this presence, but also this stillness about her, so I would tell everybody on set, 'If you don't feel uncomfortable when I'm around, then I'm not giving you Aretha at all.'"
