Halle Berry felt the ‘Oscar curse’ after her historic 2002 win

Not even halle-berry” target=”_blank”>Halle Berry< Berry reveals “it was surprising” that more movie roles did not immediately pour in after her historic Oscar win in 2002 for her role in Lee Daniels’ “movies” target=”_blank”>Monster’s Ball<

Berry made history nearly 20 years ago when she became the first black woman to win for Best Lead Actress at the eventsBerry appeared in a string of flops after the win, including 2004’s “Catwoman,” which earned her four Razzie Awards.

Berry currently stars in her directorial debut, “Bruised,” an indie film about a disgraced MMA fighter’s return to the ring, a role Blake Lively turned down.

“They gave me the script, and I loved the story, but it was written for a twentysomething Irish Catholic white woman,” Berry, who turns 55 this week, said.


Still, “I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so I thought, is it possible that this could be reimagined for someone like me? Because I think I have a take on it that could actually work — making it about a middle-aged black woman, someone fighting for a last chance rather than another chance,” she said.

Netflix reportedly paid Berry $20 million for worldwide distribution rights of the film. It premieres on the streaming giant on Nov. 24.
