Jennifer then revealed the character she would want to play in a potential live-action Hercules movie.

“But I was Calliope, the head muse, on a Disney cruise ship, so that means I’m ready for my part,” Jennifer shared.” “We are the muses, goddesses of the arts and proclaimers of heroes.”

She continued, “That was me, Calliope. So I’m ready, just roll the camera. You ain’t even got to send a script, I don’t need the music. I’m ready to shoot. So I’ll just wait for your call, thank you.”

In another recent interview, Jennifer talked about being hand-picked by the late Aretha to play her in Respect, which is out in theaters now.
