As an Oscar-winning actress, Halle Berry has spent plenty of time with talk show hosts.
But have all those chats properly prepared her to actually portray a talk show host—in particular, Oprah Winfrey?
"I'm not going to play Oprah," Berry tells DeGeneres. "No, I was 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 rumors come from."
What's more, the actress admits she isn't even aware if there are possible plans for a biopic.
"I don't know," Berry says. "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."
DeGeneres then explains why she's been grilling Berry about the topic in the first place.
"Because I was going to play Oprah," she reveals. "But that's OK. I'm not going to do it now, if you want to do it. That's why I'm just asking."
