You already know Halle Berry doesn’t play when it comes to her kids. Back in 2013 the Oscar winner was instrumental in getting the state of California to pass a law that the paparazzi can’t harass public figures while they are with their children.
So it’s no surprise the first film she made after getting that bill passed is all about a mother who will stop at nothing to save her child.
“I had just gotten the bill passed, Senate Bill 606, that got the paparazzi off my kids, and that was something I didn’t think I could do, but I gained strength in knowing that if I really wanted to do something I could do it,” she explained.
“This was the first movie after I started a production company – 606 films, and this was right in line with that female empowerment saying as women we can do exactly whatever we set our minds to there are no limitations.”
And there are no limitations to what Berry will do to get her kid back in Kidnap. In the film Berry chases down the creeps who snatch her 6-year-old son played by Sage Correa, and, she told Hiphollywood she loved the physical demands of the role — when not behind the wheel of her trusty mini van.
“I had just had a baby,” joked Berry. “My son was really little when we started filming so I needed to be running my butt off.”
You can see Berry kicking some butt when Kidnap hits theaters Aug 4th.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
