Whoopi Goldberg Reveals She Has a Clause in Her Will That Prevents Anyone From Making Unsanctioned Biopics About Her Life
On this week’s episode of The View, Whoopi Goldberg revealed that she has a clause in her will that prevents unsanctioned biopics about her life.
While her co-star Sunny Hostin mentioned the ethical issues surrounding the controversial film “Blonde” about Marilyn Monroe, she suggested that many would be eager to make a biographical film on Goldberg when she dies.
“It sounds macabre, but I was speaking to Whoopi, and I was saying that she’s such a famous person that when she passes away, people are going to make films,” Hostin said.
In response, Goldberg said, “Actually, they’re not. They’re not going to make films because in my will it says, ‘Unless you speak to my family, try it.’ Try it.”
Although Goldberg has banned unsanctioned biopics on her life, she recently appeared in the Emmet Till biopic as his mother, Mamie.
