Etta was played by Beyoncé in the 2008 movie Cadillac Dreams. The pair appeared friendly enough during the film's promotion but Etta later claimed she "can't stand Beyoncé" and that she would "get her ass whipped", possibly as a result of Beyoncé being invited to sing At Last at Barack Obama's inaugural ball.
