Halle Berry’s Sense of Humor Comes Out to PlayPublished by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Halle Berry isn’t always in the press for the best reasons, so when the actress let’s her, uh, hair down and gets playful with the media, it’s a nice reminder that she does in fact have a sense of humor.
On a press tour for her upcoming film Cloud Atlas, the gorgeous Berry is dropping LOL-worthy quotes like candy. Just today, Berry revealed a surprising famous relative in her family tree, and also discussed the curious places her new film has taken her as an actor.
“You wanna know who I’m related to?” Berry said excitedly in a video interview on Extra. “Sarah Palin!” The actress wouldn’t (or couldn’t) specify exactly how she and the former VP candidate share blood, but insists it’s true. “In some twisted way…somebody sent me this information that she was my distant [relative].” (Trivia: her Cloud Atlas co-star Tom Hanks is a distant cousin of Abraham Lincoln).
At another point, the actress sat down with EurWeb.com to discuss her crazy, boundary-stretching roles (that’s right, roles) in Cloud Atlas. One of the close to half-dozen characters Berry plays is that of an Asian man. “I have to say I did love being turned into [Korean physicist] Dr. Ovid,” Berry gushes. “Never before in my life would I ever have thought anybody anywhere would hire me to be an Asian man for any reason.” Yeah, us neither.
Well, it’s always nice to see Berry crack a smile between paparazzi beat downs and battling her ex Gabriel Aubry for custody of their 3-year-old Nahla. Hope we continue to see more of this light-hearted Halle as the promo tour of Cloud Atlas continues.
