Halle Berry has undoubtedly blessed moviegoers with a number of classics over the years. Who can forget her award-winning performance in ‘Monster’s Ball,’ the cultural phenomenon? However, not every Halle film has been a hit with the audience. In reality, when it was released 17 years ago, the film ‘Catwoman’ damaged her reputation. However, it appears that Halle’s sense of humour about the picture is still intact. She responded to compliments for her portrayal in the action-thriller with a lighter comment earlier today. “I’m sorry, but Halle Berry ate up her ‘Catwoman’ role; I’m not sure why people despise those movies; they’re camp.” “I adore it,” one Twitter user said.
Given that she isn’t mentioned, we’re not sure how our good sis found the tweet. Halle, on the other hand, answered with a dash of wit and a little bit of history thrown in for good measure. Halle answered with a tweet, “I’m seeing all the ‘Catwoman’ love, everyone.” “Wasn’t it 17 years ago when you guys were here?” She closed her message with a laughing emoticon, implying that she was joking about people leaving her in the dust when the film was released. Halle has been cast in the part of Patience Phillips by Warner Bros., as you may well know. Patience works for a huge cosmetics firm as a shy graphic designer.
She stumbles across a scam to sell substandard beauty products one day, and the rest of the narrative leads to her becoming Catwoman. Halle’s Oscar win for “Best Actress” in 2002 did little to alleviate the harsh criticism she received for her performance in “Catwoman.” On Rotten Tomatoes, the film currently has a nine percent tomatometer rating and an 18 percent audience score. The consensus among critics is that “Halle Berry is the lone bright light, but even she can’t redeem this ridiculous action movie,” according to the site. And the negative feedback didn’t cease straight away. Halle got a Razzie Award for “Worst Actress” for her portrayal in the film the same year.
If you didn’t know, the Razzie Awards is an annual satirical ceremony that “honors” the year’s worst performances and projects, per People.At the 2005 ceremony she thanked Warner Bros. for “putting me in this piece-of-sh–, God-awful movie” during her acceptance speech.Then and now, she has handled the backlash with grace and humor — we see you Halle!
