Halle Berry Had Tough Words For Bryan Singer

Halle Berry has never been one to beat around the bush when it comes to speaking her mind. The Monster’s Ball actor proved that she is tough as nails during her time as Storm in the X-Men series. While filming X-Men 2, Berry staged an intervention for director Bryan Singer who was then struggling with drug abuse. Fearing for the cast and for the welfare of Singer following his erratic and disturbing behavior, Berry was quoted to have told the director,

“I’ve heard enough. You can kiss my Black a**.”

The Catwoman actor had earlier discussed her poor working relationship with Singer but also stated that her harsh words came from a place of empathy for the director’s personal struggles.

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.”

Halle Berry’s co-star Alan Cumming  in his memoir Baggage: Tales from a Fully Packed Life, detailed the experiences of the cast during X-Men 2 and Berry’s strong rebuttal to Bryan Singer during the intervention.
