Halle Berry: Appointment with Acting Coach

Halle Berry: Appointment with Acting Coach

Halle Berry is all smiles after visiting the home of her acting coach on Monday (October 25) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 44-year-old was recently announced as one of the many celebs slated to appear on CNN Heroes: An All Star-Tribute, which airs on Thanksgiving (November 25).

Yesterday, Halle and her beau, Olivier Martinez hopped on his Harley Davidson and biked to brunch.

That same day, Halle‘s daughter Nahla spent time with her dad, model Gabriel Aubry, at a pumpkin patch.

FYI: Halle wore an AllSaints Brocade Military Tailcoat like she did on Sunday!

    Smart girl, acting coach, you need it

  • Will

    If anybody needs an acting coach it’s her. She desperately needs it.

  • she shall remain nameless

    She’s got super style!!!!

  • Jean

    Why would a veteran actor still need an acting coach?!

  • ????


    Because she can’t act! LOL Why do you think her movies do so poorly?

  • SamIam

    This woman is gorgeous dressed up or dressed down!

  • isis

    Janet Jackson is a much better actress than she is. So is Jennifer Hudson and more than 95% of the actresses in Hollywood for that matter.

  • abbeylee

    How would you know she was visiting an acting coach? You’re not an insider Jared

  • Poy

    @isis: Thats cuz Jennifer Hudson only plays herself. Halle is biracial, why do you only mention black actresses? Just because her skin is dark does not mean she isn’t as much white as she is black.

    And the one drop rule continues………..

  • isis


    Maybe it’s because she identifies herself as black and because she calls herself the first “black’ actress to win the oscar..idiot. Take the issue up with her, not me.

  • Tony

    She can’t act her way out of a paper bag.

  • Hi

    Her acting coach is Ivana Chubbuck and she’s a sociopath…she thinks she’s the god of acting and charges you 20 dollars just to AUDIT her class…and she only takes cash…talk about avoiding the tax man. She won’t even look up at people who audit her class or shake their hand, unless you name drop of course then she’s all smiles!

  • Family Lawyers Melbourne

    here is the cat women, love her outfits, looks military

  • Awwww come on!!!!

    She looks great and don’t forget about her playing the “crackhead” in spike lee’s movie and Monster’s Ball. Your an idiot if you say she can’t act.



  • Estela Gomez

    Believe me if a PuertoRican like Lala Vasquez, Rosario Dawson and Rosie Perez can call themselves Latino when they have not a drop of Latino, Halle who is at least half black can call herself that.

  • Gonzalez

    If you want to stay relevant and in the game regardless of your profession you continue to study to learn and any person with common sense should know that.

  • coach not the same as lessons

    Having an acting coach even if delusional as IC, is still not the same as taking acting lessons or classes where you can work with others. Both are delusional.

  • Me

    she got the oscar because anagela basset didnt make a movie that year….and they needed to give it to a black insult to all black actresses . if you cant act you cant act, the oscars are a popularity contest. Just tells you which actress swallows her pride and celans the dirt when told. I love all teh black actresses around but the academy should try to reward TALENT! I hope angela basset is recognized for her talent VERY SOON!

  • bellabela

    My goodness you are a dumb little something. Halle is not suppose to get every role for many reasons…I suspect her $10 million dollar paycheck may say something about whether Tyler Perry want to pay that or have a star star in this fim. It is about ensemble playing and pehaps he didn’t want anybody in there with more star power than Janet.
    She has three homes,access to whatever she wants, is rich and gorgeous and has built a career when it is really difficult for white actresses to do let alone white actresses. So go find yourself a life and quit sniffing around Halles’

  • Me

    MOST ACTORS HAVE COACHES to help them read etc. In HALLEs case its much needed and she is half wite and half black so she can call herself BOTH is she wishes..I personally dont see the point of being only black or white..we all ahve a ton of differnt races mixed over years, …the race crap is just people concerned with building line across ppl do it, white ppl do it and hispanics do it……there is a little bit of a racist in all of us!

  • bellabela


    I meant to say building a long standing acting career is hard enough for white actresses let alone black actresses. Also it is quite possible that Halle had prior film committments. She has two movie already shot and contracts for 3 more…You may like her acting, but enough people do that she keeps making top dollar for her work. Halle just had standing room only in two appearances in Europe….one in Poland, and one in Germany for the debut of her new perfumes. Americans especially black Americans who have never traveled abroad ought to get a clue that there is a world of people who adore Halle Berry and while her movies are not always hits here, they are in other countries.

  • bellabela


    Me, you sound as iliterate as your “online” moniker. I disagree that it is much needed…but we can disagree. Please learn to spell…

  • bellabela

    Sounds like you needed a therapist rather than a acting coach. I suspect the acting coach saw you as a no talented whiner and really didn’t want to encourage you to come back…

  • bellabela

    Boy the losers are out today. Halle does not call herself the first black woman to win an Oscar…the media and the Screen actors guild acknowledgse that Halle is the first black woman to win an best actor Oscar…there was one other black woman who won the best supporting actress Oscar in the 40′s

  • bellabela


    So, tell me little Ms Isis….which of those women you mentioned gets a $10 million dollar for their paycheck for an acting gig?

    I don’t think Janet is that good, but I think she has potential, now that she is living a grown up life.

    I like Jennifer, but I don’t think she should have won that supporting actor Oscar. I did not think what she did on screen was any different than many of us has seen with our girl friends…she was playing a pissed sistah…sorry, but that did not take much acting range. I think BEyonce is a much better actor than Jennifer, but as America does if you are too pretty, too talented, then folks get mad if it looks like you are getting everything and they try to cut you down a bit…Jennifer’s part was easy…it was loud and angry…any coach will tell you that is easy to play. BEyonce had to play a nuanced performance…not too much grandstanding, but subtle work. I will always think she should have won.

    The same reason MDs’, neurosurgeons, and psychiatrists are required to sbumit to continuing education classes and psychiatrists are also to see a psychiatrist as part of their continuing monitoring of the work they are doing and their own mental health.

    Actors have to sharpen their skills and often if they are doing a role they have never played before, it make sense to go back and test your skills. Halle is doing a broadway play later this year or early next year. She is doing a comedy…they take different acting muscles…the same difference is you are running a 100 yard sprint or or running laps. Most of you on here have so little understanding of what it takes to be a successful actor and maintain a long career….you just get snark happy and down right nasty about someone you have never met. You only do that when you are jealous of their life…its clear to us who read you.

  • no 10M

    @bellabela: Halle hasn’t made $10M since Perfect Strangers. She my other post on one of the other Halle thread on this.

  • @Bellabella baby…

    @no 10M: See my other post re: this. 2008-2010: Variety/Hollywood Reporter said Halle was on the list of actors/actresses who make $3-$5M per picture. She made considerable less on Things We Lost in The Fire–very small budget for an indie film. Don’t know what she made as actor/producer of Frankie & Alice, it wasn’t $10M, don’t know if she even got paid yet because of the past financial problems. Dark Tide another film without a huge budget-Halle didn’t get paid $10M for this either.

  • bellabela

    @Estela Gomez:

    Rosario Dawson and the rest of those women are Latino…you mean because they have browner skin they are not Latino…Latino derives from the word Latin…and sorry Latino does not mean white skin…has the world gone totally crazy…

  • bellabela


    gosh that bad acting pays enough to have several homes and life style you don’t seem to have…just guessing, but I rarely see her on these forums windom peeping at your life Tony…just sayin

    Also actors and actresses are often only as good as the parts they are given ….go see Halle in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever…She is brilliant. The same in Monster’s ball…the problem is that Halle like most beautiful women is given fluff…and being a black actress, you want a career worth anything, you have to cull through the junk to find the half decent. I loved the work she did in the film with Bruce Willis and she was good in the film with Ducovny….Halle is a good actress, she just needs the role and director who will pull it out of her.

  • johnthebaptist

    @Me: Oh please Angela Bassett is a good actress, but I don’t particularly like her style. She’s a little “hard” in every picture…and at one time she had been to the gym several times to many….she had more muscles than a male gym instructor. But also Angela is not a glam gal and that’s fine, she is still beautiful …Halle can’t help what she looks like…but she has been very smart and used those looks to move her ahead like every other white movie star has done. I just don’t get the nasty whine that follows Halle. Not one of us had a say in how we landed on this earth, all we can do is make the best of it. You don’t like her acting, then don’t go to her movies…but what is this hanging out o line trying to rip her to shreds..that is some sick …..t

  • Cora

    ….. testing ….. having site problems

  • Smith

    The SAME reason EVERY veteran PRO ATHLETE, SINGER, DANCER, ETC. utilizes a coach–to keep their skills HONED! With your mindset, I can tell u’re not GREAT at ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Me


    Never paid for a halle movie, but sometimes she is paired with someone I like and its shows up on tv..

    I actually hardly pay for any movie unless its what I condier good . And my good is different from your good. I offered an opinion about her acting and yours may differ, but you cant tell me what movie to watch adn what not to. I dont care about halled ancestry…black green yellow blue..we are all human.

  • John

    Halle Berry is an excellent actress! Her performance in numerous movies attest to that, especially her role in Monster’s Ball. That film allowed her to prove that she is a dynamic actress who can play a variety of roles. Furthermore, her newest movie, Frankie and Alice, gives her the chance to showcase her remarkable acting abilities even further as she portrays a woman who has multiple personalities. Playing this kind of character speaks to her exceptional skills, as all of her personalities are real and believable. Additionally, the movie is simply outstanding! She and her co-star Stellan Skarsgard have excellent chemistry and her supporting cast, including Phylicia Rashad from the Cosby Show, are superb. The movie is captivating and entertaining. Halle is again at her finest!!

  • rose

    Halle Berry is a seasoned actress with great skill. She is also the only black woman to win an Academy Award. Where is the respect for her accomplishments? If so many of you can out do Ms. Berry, please do! Until then, she deserves respect and admiration for her tremendous accomplishments.
