AceShowbiz - Marlon Wayans made confessions about his "Respect" co-star Jennifer Hudson. As he was making his way to his car in a parking lot, the "Marlon" star told a female reporter that he was aroused by the "American Idol" alum's voice.
"That voice. Yo, like that voice? It's weird. It actually gave me a woody," the 47-year-old actor said before adding, "Don't tell her this, please." When the reporter said, "This could be you shooting your shot," he was adamant that he didn't want the actress to know about his comments.
He also gushed about J-Hud's "amazing" kiss. "Have you ever kissed an angel? I did," he claimed. "Her breath was amazingly fresh, whole lips like pillows. It felt like I was kissing that cloud." He even ranked her kiss among the "top three" in his lifetime.
When asked who had a better voice, Jennifer or Beyonce Knowles, he scolded the reporter for trying to pit two black women against each other. He, however, was quick to give his answer when Taylor Swift's name was thrown into the comparison.
Jennifer Hudson plays the lead role of Aretha Franklin in the true-story movie while Marlon Wayans stars as Ted White, the late singer's first husband. The other cast members include Forest Whitaker, Audra McDonald, Mary J. Blige, and Tituss Burgess.
The long-gestating biopic is helmed by award-winning stage director Liesl Tommy. The music legend was involved in the development before her passing at the age of 76 in 2018. The movie is scheduled to make its way out across the country starting August 14, 2020.
The movie was more than a decade in the making and Jennifer was hand-picked by Franklin. "A year after I won my Oscar, she had me meet her here in New York City, and we talked about it, so now it’s actually manifesting and happening," revealed the "Idol" singer.
