She says she 'can't sing' and wouldn't be able to 'do her justice.'

Aretha Franklin says she wants Halle Berry to play her in an upcoming movie about her life.

But Berry isn't ready to sign on.   "I can't sing!" she told E!'s Ryan Seacrest before Sunday's Golden Globes. "If I could carry a tune, I'd consider it. Someone should tell Aretha that I can't do her justice."
