American Idol winner Jennifer Hudson is showing some respect for the Queen of Soul. On Tuesday, the Dreamgirls actress, 38, was photographed in New York City while on the set of Respect, the 2020 biopic film based on the life of the late great Detroit native Aretha Franklin. In the photos, Hudson, who portrays the legendary singer in the movie, got into character wearing a retro-style bun paired with an over-sized tweed coat and elaborate earrings, as she walked the streets beside costar Marlon Wayans, who plays Franklin’s first husband, Ted White. Movie comes out October 2020.
