In the company statement, they said:

That sounds so unlikely!

The part of Princess Tiana in Disney's Princess & The Frog was a highly coveted role that many big named actresses auditioned for.

But, the casting director for the movie, Jen Rudin wrote in her book Confessions of a Casting Director that Beyoncé actually expected an offer rather than auditioning for the role like everyone else!

Which doesn't sound like Bey at all! She's always so humble about everything in her life!

Jen dished on the whole audition process:
