HALLE BERRY REVEALS SHE ONCE LIVED IN A HOMELESS SHELTERAugust 10, 2017
Halle Berry started her career in a homeless shelter.
The Oscar winner has disclosed that shortly after arriving in NYC to start her modeling & acting career she found her without a roof over her head.
“I mean three months later, I was out of my cash,” she told People. “I called my mother and asked her to send me some money, and she said no, and that subsequently led to a year of not speaking to her because I was so upset that she wouldn’t help me.”
But the Kidnap star believes her mother’s tough love and the time in a Manhattan shelter helped mold her into who she is today.
“That’s probably one of the best things she did for me … She said, ‘If you want to be there, then you work it out.’ And I had to work it out.”
Halle added: “And shelter life was part of figuring it out for a minute until I could get a waitressing job. Then I got a bartending job, and until I could figure that out, that’s what I did.”
And the rest is Hollywood history!
