Could Janet Jackson pull off a role as challenging as portraying late entertainer, Eartha Kitt ? According to Jackson, the opportunity to play Kitt in a biopic would be a dream come true. “I adore her and I had the opportunity to spend time with her,” says Jackson. “She had expressed wanting me to portray her and was excited about the idea of me portraying her in a film.” While Jackson is optimistic, it is unclear when and if a production based on Kitt will be shot. “If that’s really going to happen, I’m not quite sure, but I hope it does,” says Jackson. “What an icon. She had gone through so much – not just her adulthood, but her childhood.”
