Halle Berry spilled the beans on a secret she’d been keeping since her time on the 2002 James Bond installment of ‘Die Another Day’.
The actress spoke with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday’s edition of ‘The Tonight Show’ and revealed that while filming the movie alongside Pierce Brosnan, he once saved her life on the set after began chocking – and for that, she’s eternally grateful to the Bond star.
‘I was supposed to be all sexy, trying to seduce him with a fig’, Berry said of her Bond girl character Jinx Johnson. ‘I end up choking on it and he had to get up and do the Heimlich’.
The 53-year-old ‘Monster’s Ball’ standout couldn’t contain her laugher as she continued.
‘That was so not sexy’, she added, prompting Fallon the maintain that we’d never see James Bond perform such a maneuver in a movie.
‘James Bond known how to Heimlich! He was there for me, he will always be one of my favorite people in the whole world’, Berry said.
During their conversation, the topic turned to the ongoing coronavirus quarantine and Berry opened up about holed up with her two children, daughter Nahla, 12, whom she shares with ex Gabriel Aubry, and son Maceo, 6, whom she shares with ex-husband actor Olivier Martinez.
While her daughter is taking this time in stride, the same can’t be said for Maceo, who is ‘like a madman right now’, Berry said. ‘He’s bouncing off the walls, he just doesn’t know what’s happening. It’s really hard for him’.
Barry recently said she has been utilizing her son as a weight during her at-home workout session and said Maceo is holding up well during her leg extensions, which aids in keeping him occupied.
‘I even use my son as workout equipment when we’re goofing around’, Berry wrote in Women’s Health last week. ‘I’ll sit in a chair and he’ll lay across my feet, and I’ll do a few sets of leg extensions’.
The workout should serve Barry well for her upcoming role in a film that she also directed titled ‘Bruised’, in which she plays disgraced MMA fighter Jackie ‘Justice’.
