Halle Berry Gets Candid About Fighting With Bryan Singer While Working on 'X-Men': 'Bryan Struggles'

Halle Berry is on the cover of Variety‘s latest issue, out now.

Here’s what the 54-year-old Academy Award-winning actress had to say…

On her experience working with Bryan Singer on X-Men: “;Bryan”;s not the easiest dude to work with. I mean, everybody”;s heard the stories –; I don”;t have to repeat them –; and heard of his challenges, and what he struggles with. I would sometimes be very angry with him. I got into a few fights with him, said a few cuss words out of sheer frustration. When I work, I”;m serious about that. And when that gets compromised, I get a little nutty. But at the same time, I have a lot of compassion for people who are struggling with whatever they”;re struggling with, and Bryan struggles.”;

On Catwoman: “The story didn’t feel quite right. I remember having that argument: “;Why can”;t Catwoman save the world like Batman and Superman do? Why is she just saving women from a face cream that cracks their face off?”; But I was just the actor for hire. I wasn”;t the director. I had very little say over that.”;

On a failed Bond spinoff for Berry’s character Jinx: “;It was very disappointing. It was ahead of its time. Nobody was ready to sink that kind of money into a Black female action star. They just weren”;t sure of its value. That”;s where we were then.”;

Another X-Men star came forward with their own experience of working with the director.
