Halle Berry Apologizes for Accepting Transgender Role


This week actress Halle Berry caused a bit of a firestorm after announcing she was considering a role as a transgender man.

After pushback from the trans community Halle apologizes for being insensitive...

Apparently while Halle was discussing the role on a podcast she misgendered the trans character several times and also used "it" to describe the transition.



After pushback from the trans community Halle apologized and promised to step away from the project.

Hollyweird is filled to the gills with transgenders, hiding behind different genders. That role should have gone to a transgender. I give no fucks about the lmnopqrstuvwxyz community and their issues, but fair is fair.

Wtf is a cisgender woman??? I swear I can't keep up with all these new gender terms.

why is she apologizing, she's an "Actor" and that's what they do is act. I miss Obama sometimes and then too, I have to give him the side eye for creating literal monsters with this group. Wish they would go away

Halle doesnt fool me. This is just a tired ass stunt to keep her name out there. Notice how she wouldnt say the name of this project or who is involved besides her. Its a total stunt. There is no project in the works. Girl go raise your kids and just accept that its over. You had a good run.

Don't try to keep up, that stunt queen community do entirely the fucking most. I have never seen so many labels for two random ass human beings, this is why I don't rock with them, that and the fact the greys behind this movement is racist af and only use the tragic kneegrows, for their numbers to carry out their retarded ass agenda's. In the hetro world you are either male or female, this is the result of krakka nonsense and like nigga nonsense I don't ride with either.

I respect everyone and however they choose to live their lives.
With that being said, why are people mad a Halle for accepting a job that was offered to her? Seems it would be better to direct your anger at the people who are doing the casting.

Hmmmm...this is a double edged sword...She is an actor and role playing is what they do. But no one said anything about male actors who were casted as women/gay...Two Wong Foo, Will in 6 Degrees, Travolta etc...
However, I'm offended when they cast white actors portraying black characters..

Halle still would be bitching if she was offered a role playing a grandmother. Halle you need to face the facts you're not that girl in hollyweird anymore. Nobody is checking for you.

Speaking as a bisexual woman, I'm sick of these trans Nazis. It seems like there's very few trans people who mind their own business. These trans people and trans allies have become a hate group. This is why I deal with the LGBT community with a long handled spoon these days.

@10:57 I agree! Halle is not some superb actress. Angela Bassett and Viola Davis should have been got the amount of accolades this overrated Heffa has gotten. And she ain't as sexy and beautiful as people hype her up to be. She ain't got NOTHING on Vanity from Vanity 6, Kenya Moore, or Tyra Banks.

So trans people shouldn't play women or men going with this logic. Or let actors act...

Hollywood has werked her so bad that now she’s playing dykes. They would have definitely had her in some butt naked lesbian sex scenes like they did in Monster’s Ball- looking a damn fool. Smh

Hallie's best role, to me was Loosing Isaiah, as a crack head mother. She was really good. Outside of that, her movies really have not been that success based on her performance.

They should give the role to whom ever is best for the part. It dont matter your role play in the bedroom. What actor can bring it and make me believe your character.

Hilary swank played a transgender and won an Oscar. What is the problem?

At some point no actor will be able to play anything outside of their range and comedians won't be allowed to tell an offense joke that's directed towards anyone other than their own people. Halle's not cut out for roles beyond sex-pot or a crackhead because she's incapable of successfully playing anything in-between. However, where do we draw the line if an actor isn't allowed to actually act? Are they all supposed to get social media approval before they even consider taking on a role? Now don't get me wrong. Some of these actors need to sit their asses down -- like Zoe thinking she could pull off Nina Simone. But a lot of great actors can do a story justice if they have the right amount of talent.

And I agree Niyabinghi/ObeahWomanWarriorall. All these terminologies, labels and rules are confusing AF! So much for calling people what they are: male or female.

Halle is damn near flawless to look at but is NOT the greatest actress. If such a role does exist she must not want to muck it up in times such as these where all eyes will be on her. Hell she seemed confused when she let her son walk around in her high heeled shoes. Let someone who could perform a full transformation and great story do the part. But to see a beautiful guy become a beautiful girl... will wait for video and shouldn't it be played by someone in their early twenties??? We already seen a mid life crisis who wants to bring Bruce Jenner life story to the big screen. Hey.... now theres an idea that would be a good Lifetime movie title Bruce with a thin line through it or an X with Caitlyn. Seeing him sneaking in Kris closet playing dress up while Kris out pimping her daughters.

Drag Queens hate women and they are always attacking them. TS Madison is especially hateful towards black women and until they hateful asses start treating women the way they want to be treated fuck em. They are men until then.

Hilary didnt REALLY play a trans person. She played a gay stud. Brandon (the person she played) hadnt undergone any operations or hormone therapy.

What I've found interesting about trans actors is, they only want to play their preferred gender or a trans role. If you ask them to play the role of an opposite gender or the role of a pre-opp trans character, they fold immediately because it's too psychologically daunting for them to get into that character. This is partly why I don't take the trans community seriously. The only time any actor should be entitled to a to a role, based on gender or race, is if the project is an autobiography. Or, if race/gender is an important part of that characters development. Anything else should be fair game. It should be about acting and the depth of that character. However, Hollywood is so jaded, biased, and bigoted, that these opportunities would only go to cisgendered yt males - most of whom can't act worth a damn.

As for Halle, I'm proud that she's at least searching for roles outside of the stereotypical box. She may not be the most talented actress of our generation but I'm happy to see a black woman playing an astronaut (TV series "Extant"), an assassin in Morocco (John Wick 3), a black UFC fighter (Bruised), etc...like I said, Halle is trying and I, personally, would have loved to see what she would have done with a transgendered character.
