Seen On The Scene: Cinema Crasher Jennifer Hudson Pops Up At ATL ‘Respect’ Screening, Intros New Film

The actress/songstress handpicked to portray Aretha Franklin is on a press run for “Respect” and she recently did some cinema crashing.

On Tuesday, Jennifer Hudson surprised guests at Atlanta’s IPIC Theaters at Colony Square where they were attending a Christina Granville-hosted private screening of the biopic.

According to Jenn, she just wanted to “put eyes on the crowd” and she hoped they enjoyed the film…

J. Hud recently revealed in a cover story for Variety, that Aretha is “still with me, almost every day in some way.”

“Sometimes, while taking pictures with someone, I’m like, ‘Oh wow, I’m smiling like Aretha,’ ” Hudson said about her experiences. “Or, ‘That response was more Aretha-like.’”

“You identify little things like that in yourself that are still there,” she continued.

 

As previously reported BOSSIP was part of an audience of media professionals who attended a preview event for the “Respect” trailer reveal and were also on hand for the ATL premiere. We can confirm that the Queen of Soul picked the right one to play her as J. Hud effortlessly epitomized Aretha down to her speech pattern and voice. Hudson previously said she challenged herself to become a better piano player while playing the role and she also faced an interesting decision about whether to sing Franklin’s songs “like Franklin” would or to do them as “Jennifer Hudson influenced by Franklin would.” Based on the film, we’d say J. Hud did a bit of both.
