BEYONCE KNOWLES studied her Motown idols intensely before taking on her role in the film version of Broadway musical DREAMGIRLS. The CRAZY IN LOVE star was so excited to get her part, she spent months researching her role. Beyonce says, "I looked at everything The Supremes and Martha Reeves did. We rehearsed for two months before we started filming. And I prepared for two months before that. This was my dream, to be in that film. I wanted it bad."
