Halle Berry didn’t shower for 2 months


Halle Berry is a well-known actress who has appeared in a variety of film and television projects over the years.

In 1991, she made her acting debut in a movie alongside Samuel L. Jackson, in which she played a character struggling with a crack-cocaine addiction.

In preparation for the role, Berry revealed that she took method acting to the extreme by not showering for eight weeks during the production of the film.

During an interview, Berry explained that while she wasn’t willing to experiment with drugs in real life, she wanted to fully embrace her character and immerse herself in the role.

She stated that while it was a challenging experience, she felt it was necessary in order to accurately portray the character.

She said: “I didn’t smoke crack. I drew the line there but it was 23 years ago so I was brand spanking new and at that time all I could really do was kind of try to be it, to be it so I didn’t shower for the whole entire time that we shot that movie, so that was probably about eight weeks.


“It was gnarly, it was gnarly. Certain body parts got washed, let’s just say that.”

Despite the difficulties, Berry’s performance received praise from audiences and critics alike.

Ten years after her acting debut, Berry won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in “Monster Ball.”

In an interview with Live! with Kelly and Michael, she shared that she keeps the award in her bedroom, away from the public eye.

She stated that her home, which she shares with her husband and fellow actor Olivier Martinez, is meant to be a private space and doesn’t have any visible evidence of their careers as actors.

Berry explained that she keeps the Oscar in her bedroom as a reminder of her accomplishments and as a personal motivation.
