Halle Berry Movie Career

In 1998, Berry received praise for her role in Bulworth as an intelligent woman raised by activists who gives a politician (Warren Beatty) a new lease on life.

In 2001, Berry appeared in the film Swordfish, which featured her first topless scene.At first, she refused to be filmed topless in a sunbathing scene, but she changed her mind when Warner Brothers raised her fee substantially. The brief flash of her breasts added $500,000 to her fee. Berry considered these stories to be rumors and was quick to deny them.As Bond girl Giacinta ‘Jinx’ Johnson in the 2002 blockbuster Die Another Day, Berry recreated a scene from Dr. No, emerging from the surf to be greeted by James Bond as Ursula Andress had 40 years earlier. Lindy Hemming, costume designer on Die Another Day, had insisted that Berry wear a bikini and knife as a homage. Berry has said of the scene: “It’s splashy”, “exciting”, “sexy”, “provocative” and “it will keep me still out there after winning an Oscar”.

As of 2013, Berry’s worldwide box office gross has been more than USD$3.3 billion. In 2011, she appeared in New Year’s Eve. She played one of the leads in the film Cloud Atlas, which was released in October 2012.
