Halle Berry has had a weird career. At least for those of us who have followed her career since childhood. Yes, she won the Oscar, the first and only black woman to win Best Actress for Monsters ball in 2001, but she wasn’t a Hollywood mainstay like Ryan Gosling, Amy Adams or even her X-Men co-star Hugh Jackman. Berry tends to be more of a wave, in and out of the public consciousness with every film she makes.
Now, however, the 54-year-old actress seems to be on the cusp of another comeback. Halle Berry will direct and star in her next film, bruised. Netflix will release the film on its streaming platform in November 2021. Who knows? The film could well be Berry’s next big hit. We could see her on the red carpet or something if the movie does well enough.
In an interview with Weekly entertainment, Halle Berry talked about her upcoming movie, doing her own stunt work, and aging in Hollywood. Could be bruised be the next big hit of Halle Berry’s golf-like career? What kind of wisdom did the actress learn during her career? Here’s everything you need to know.
What attracted Halle Berry? bruised?
bruised, a film about a disgraced MMA fighter trying to be a better mother to her son, was originally a Blake Lively vehicle with a male director at the helm. Berry, however, said it stayed with her. When Lively left the project, Berry said, “So about six months later when… [Lively] decided in her own time that it wasn’t for her, I went to the producer, Basil Iwanyk, who I had just done John Wick 3 with, and gave him my pitch. And he said, ‘Great, we like that idea. Now go find a director.’”
As for her idea? Berry said, “I couldn’t get it out of my head, so I thought, is it possible this could be reimagined for someone like me? Because I think I have a view of it that could actually work — making it about a middle-aged black woman, someone who is fighting for one last chance instead of another.” She added:[W]when you’re at a certain stage of your life, it gets a little more impactful and meaningful, doesn’t it?”
Berry did try to find a director, but when no one saw what she saw, she went back to Iwanyk and said she wanted to direct the film. “I had to go back and say, ‘I tried really hard, but what’s in my head, nobody else sees. This is going to sound really crazy because it’s crazy for me to even think it, but I think I have to direct this.’” He agreed, and that’s how bruised her directorial debut.
Aged and Hollywood
Halle Berry, as any fan can tell you, goes hard for her roles. On the set of John Wick 3Berry broke two of her rubs. On the first day before bruised, she also broke two of her ribs. They are, feels them to notice THAT, unlike the two ribs she had broken earlier. That’s four broken ribs filming this stuff, Halle. We’re starting to get a little concerned.
Still, Berry enjoys where her career has taken her. She thought, “Your career used to be over at 40, and I mean really done. Or you had to wait until you were old enough to play Grandma and then you could have another bite of the apple, right? I mean, I couldn’t think I’d be playing an MMA fighter at age 54. Yet I did, so it has to change. I’m proof of that.”
