Halle Berry's story has been one of overcoming adversity in her life. She has faced some difficulties throughout her decades-long career. Berry opened up about the biggest hurdle she had to overcome in her life. The Oscar winner said about facing abuse:
Opening up about her abuse experience showed a different side to the Oscar winner. The public persona crafted by the media and fans only revealed one side to Halle Berry. Berry took the time to debunk the myth that the beautiful ones don't face hardships in their lives. As the actress pointed out, all the admiration and love didn’t spare her facing some traumatic moments.
But speaking openly about abuse wasn’t the only issue Halle Berry tackled. The actress gained some insight into Hollywood after being part of the system for four decades. She saw herself as being a vessel for others through her work. The Moonfall star said to The New York Times about her experience as a Black woman:
Portraying Black women in the right light seemed to be Halle Berry’s mission. That mission drove the Oscar winner to get behind the camera. She delved into why she chose to direct the mixed martial arts-themed Bruised.
Using her life experiences to inform her directorial debut made the film sound like an intriguing watch. Fans have watched as Halle Berry spoke up and showed her process in creating Bruised.
