*Apparently there are rumors going around that Halle Berry was cast as the lead in an upcoming biopic about her friend Oprah Winfrey.
During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to air Monday, the Oscar winner sets the record straight.
“I’m not going to play Oprah,” the Oscar winner says in an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to air Monday. “No, I was just like [pretends to be on the phone], ‘Hey, Oprah, Am I playing you? Just tell me because nobody has told me this.’ I don’t know where these rumors come from.”
Is there even a movie being made?
“I don’t know,” admits Berry. “Not that I wouldn’t want to play Oprah if there was a movie. I just don’t know how this stuff gets made up.
Winfrey will launch her network, OWN, on Jan. 1 after stepping down from her talk show after 25 years.
