Of course, as she got into the music business herself, Hudson got to know the Queen of Soul personally, even getting Franklin’s blessing to play her in the biopic Respect. When it came time to film the movie, though, Hudson told us she started to realize that, as big of a fan as she’d been, there was an awful lot she still didn’t know about Aretha Franklin.
