Halle berry made her directorial debut with Bruised this fall, and the actress recently revealed how far she’s willing to go to make sure her labor of love crosses the finish line.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Berry explained that she broke two ribs on the first day of filming. She quickly added that these were not the same ribs she had fractured during the filming of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum in 2019.
“When you break something, it calcifies and it’s stronger. You don’t usually break the same bones twice, ”Berry said. She explained that she chose to work through the pain because, during Parabellum, her injury stopped production.
“I spoke to the manager about it,” they told insurance. We had to shut down for months and it was a big ordeal, “recalls the 54-year-old actress.” On that note, because it was an independent film, we didn’t have a big budget. The director in me said, “I haven’t come this far and haven’t worked so hard to get home.”
Eric Brun, who worked as a stunt coordinator for Bruised, was impressed with Berry’s determination.
“[It was] some kind of crazy wound. But that was just his intensity, ”said Brown. “Halle is a special case. I’ve worked with tons of actors, and almost none of them have that kind of work ethic.
Bruised, a sports drama in which Berry plays a disgraced MMA fighter on the road to redemption, premieres November 24 on Netflix.
