“This one hurts all through my heart you can’t explain this woman’s impact on those of us who knew her….. If you didn’t know her you missed it……What a beautiful friend.” – Steve Harvey

“Patti was the most understated STAR I’ve ever known. Her faith, wisdom and support will truly be missed as well as her love and friendship.” – Chris Paul

“Patti and I have worked together for almost 20 years and she was a friend, a daughter and a sister to me. It’s like I’ve lost a fourth sister. But I thank God that I was able to be with her and sing to her before she passed. She was loved and admired by many and will be truly missed.” -Patti LaBelle

“Patti Webster never gave up. No matter what she was facing in business or in her personal life, she had the kind of attitude that inspires everyone around her. It was never about her. It was always about how she could help everybody else. I’m deeply saddened by this loss. However, I’m comforted knowing Patti’s influence on myself and those she met was so powerful and so positive it changed all of our lives for the better. May she rest in peace.” – Kelly Rowland

Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
