In an age where celebrity film biopics like Nina Simone and Marvin Gaye have been surrounded in controversy, one A-list actress is determined to avoid the behind-the-scenes movie drama.

Halle Berry always said her dream role was the biopic of 1960s political activist Angela Davis. But the Oscar winner told BET.com that she would never make the film without Davis’ blessing.

Find out why in the video below. Berry also talks about what it was like starring opposite Morris Chestnut in her new psychological thriller The Call, the 20th anniversary of Queen and more.

The Call hits theaters March 15.
