Halle Berry did stunts with broken ribs for three days on the set of Bruised
Working while injured has become a badge of honor it seems in Hollywood. Tom Cruise continued acting after breaking his ankle while filming Mission Impossible: Fallout. Halle Berry broke two ribs while filming John Wick 3 which forced production to shut down for eight weeks while she recovered. Halle learned from that experience and not in a good way in my opinion. Halle recently stated that she broke two different ribs on the first day shooting her newest movie and directorial debut, Bruised (out tomorrow on Netflix). Halle told USA today that after this happened she didn?t tell anyone because she didn?t want to be responsible for shutting down production. Instead, Halle continued to film fight scenes for three more days without complaint.

?I knew if I told (producers) this happened, they would shut down and I would probably lose my funding. I just willed myself to do it,? she says. ?I took a bunch of Advil and I just acted as if it wasnt happening.?

Six-time UFC champ Shevchenko, who plays Lady Killer in the film, remembers it similarly. ?Every single take you have to do with your full power, full speed,? the fighter recalls, noting the bruises that audiences see on their bodies are real. ?You could tell something happened.?

Berry, 55, who had trained relentlessly in judo, taekwondo and Muay Thai for more than two years, also knew what delays cost: Making 2019?s ?John Wick 3,? production shut down for eight weeks when she broke her ribs.

After Lively moved on, Berry and screenwriter Michelle Rosenfarb re-envisioned the character as a has-been, middle-age fighter and absentee mother on a quest for redemption. When she couldn?t find the right director, Berry put herself up for the job.

?I felt like I was at a point in my career where I had to bet on myself,? she says. ?I had to make it happen.?

Onscreen for much of ?Bruised,? Berry?s famous bone structure is disfigured under bulging black eyes, blood or both. She loved it.

?Especially being me and people always commented on how I look, it was so liberating to wake up every day and the more (expletive) up I looked, the better it was going to be for the days work,? she says.

[From USA Today]

I know for some that this is a flex but I don?t believe that it is. In a way it?s sad that she felt she had to do this to keep her investors for her directorial debut. I believe no matter the job, my priority must always be my health. Not to mention it?s also dangerous. What if Tom got a traveling blood clot from breaking his ankle or if Halle bruised some organs without knowing it? When actors injure themselves they should tell someone. At the same time, it is also insane that Halle was able to work through that much pain. The injury may have helped inform her character because MMA fighters are constantly breaking things and sustaining injuries. Halle got the opportunity to fully experience what MMA fighters go through. Anyways, I hope Halle has spent time to allow her body to heal. I am glad she didn?t sustain anything worse.

Salma Hayek was told 'you?ll never find a job here' early in her career

Salma Hayek was told 'you?ll never find a job here' early in her career
Salma Hayek is currently starring in two movies at the box office, The Eternals and House of Gucci. Not only that, Salma has now become the 2709th celebrity to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In her acceptance speech, Salma encouraged people to pursue their dreams and never give up despite the odds. Salma said that she almost gave up in the beginning of her American career. Executives told her she would never get a job in Hollywood and that she should go back to doing telenovelas. Here?s People?s writeup of that:

During her acceptance speech, Hayek encouraged others to find something to love as much as she has loved cinema over the years.

If you think you arent good at it like I did, make yourself good at it, the House of Gucci star told the crowd. It doesnt have to be the movies. Be your best at everything you do.

Try to be better. Try to find the joy in what you do, she continued. Work hard. Prepare. Dont care what anybody says. But most importantly, dont listen to yourself when you bring yourself down.

The actress said a poor man who was on the floor and was very messed up attempted to attack her after she ignored his catcall while showing a friend around the area. Eventually, Hayek said, a pair of gentlemen from the Hells Angels stopped the man and escorted the women to their car.

Every time I thought about Hollywood Boulevard, this is what I remember, the star said at the ceremony. The truth is that when I went home that night, I said What am I doing here? Nobody wants me. I mean, I almost got killed today.

The Eternals actress also recalled facing racism both in both public and professional settings. Hayek recalled one studio telling her, Why dont you go back to the (Mexican) telenovelas? Youll never find a job here, which she claims happened many times.

[From People]

I really like Salma despite her saying some of the most facepalm things I?ve ever heard. I believe Salma when she said folks in Hollywood were racist towards her. I believe that was about her being Mexican. The fact that Hollywood executives were telling Salma to go back to where she came from during a period where Latinx women were popular aesthetically says a lot about anti-Mexican sentiment in America particularly. Remember when Catherine Zeta-Jones, a Welsh woman, played a Spanish character in The Mask of Zorro?

I also cant believe that Salma was almost stabbed because she ignored a man?s catcalls (why are some men like this?). The beautiful thing about these anecdotes is that Salma never gave up on her dreams despite everything she?s been through. Salma comes from a very privileged background back in Mexico, but that does not mean that she did not have to work hard to get where she is now. Salma is now a household name and has done well for herself in her career. It must feel good for her to look back and see all she?s overcome.
