Halle Berry is on the cover of Variety‘s latest issue, out now.
Here’s what the 54-year-old Academy Award-winning actress had to say…
On her experience working with Bryan Singer on X-Men: “Bryan’s not the easiest dude to work with. I mean, everybody’s heard the stories — I don’t have to repeat them — and heard of his challenges, and what he struggles with. I would sometimes be very angry with him. I got into a few fights with him, said a few cuss words out of sheer frustration. When I work, I’m serious about that. And when that gets compromised, I get a little nutty. But at the same time, I have a lot of compassion for people who are struggling with whatever they’re struggling with, and Bryan struggles.”
On Catwoman: “The story didn’t feel quite right. I remember having that argument: ‘Why can’t Catwoman save the world like Batman and Superman do? Why is she just saving women from a face cream that cracks their face off?’ But I was just the actor for hire. I wasn’t the director. I had very little say over that.”
On a failed Bond spinoff for Berry’s character Jinx: “It was very disappointing. It was ahead of its time. Nobody was ready to sink that kind of money into a Black female action star. They just weren’t sure of its value. That’s where we were then.”
Another X-Men star came forward with their own experience of working with the director.
