LONDON - Hollywood actress Halle Berry has denied reports that she has been roped in to play Oprah Winfrey in her rumoured biopic.
“I’m not going to play Oprah, 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 rumours come from,” express.co.uk quoted her as saying in an interview with TV host Ellen DeGeneres.
Berry admits she’s not even sure a movie is being made. However, she wouldn’t be opposed to the part.
She adds, “I don’t know. 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,” she said.
Winfrey will step down as the host of The Oprah Winfrey Show later this year to launch her network, OWN, Jan 1, 2011.
