Halle Berry is glad people are enjoying ‘Catwoman’ after she carried ‘the weight’ of the film for years

On Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Halle Berry stopped by and reflected on the fact that she is finally getting some love for her 2004 film, Catwoman, which was a box office bomb and a critical failure. But Berry says that while it seemed like pretty much everyone was disappointed in the film, she actually wasn’t.

“I worked really hard to be a Catwoman. I learned capoeira. I did the work,” Berry said. “The disheartening part was I didn't direct it, I didn't produce it, nor did I write it. I was just the actress in it. But for all these years I have carried I think, you know, the weight of that film. And whatever success it had or didn't have, somehow it seemed like it was all my fault. But it really wasn't my fault. But I've been carrying it.”

As host Jimmy Kimmel pointed out, Berry posted a Tweet in late October after she started randomly getting a bunch of love from people who were discovering, or re-discovering, the film and praising her performance.


“So when that came up,” Berry said of the random Twitter praise. “It gave me a chance to sort of like… to stick it back.”
