“X-Men” star Halle Berry weighed in on her desire to continue playing Storm, how women of color can continue to break down barriers in Hollywood and accepting her Razzie Award for “Catwoman” in a recent interview with Deadline.
When asked if she would like to star in a Storm film, she responded, “In a heartbeat. In a heartbeat I would do a Storm movie. I love that character through and through. So if that ever became an opportunity for me if it’s before I’m 65-years old I would absolutely do that.”
“Well, I think they should do it,” she added. “If the fans want that the fans need to speak up and I’m sure it would be a possibility. If Fox felt like they could make money off of a Storm movie I’m sure they would do it.”
She also spoke a little about her experience breaking down barriers as a woman of color in Hollywood. “I think I’ve always been willing to take those risks to move us forward, especially women and then women of color. Sometimes it’s worked out and sometimes it hasn’t but it doesn’t mean that every try hasn’t been worth it. That’s what evolution is. Sometimes you don’t get it right but it doesn’t mean you stop.”
However, for all her success, Berry revealed that she isn’t afraid to laugh at herself as well. “I pride myself in being somebody that has pushed the envelope and done things that people don’t always think I should do. But I’m one to always try to break those stereotypes and march to the beat of my own drum and do what I want to do. Kind of like when I showed up to receive my Razzie Award for ‘Catwoman.’ I don’t think anybody would have even done that. I’ve always just done things on my own terms and don’t take myself all that seriously. I never put myself in that box of you’re an Oscar winner so you can only do this or that. ”
