Since then, things have not gone exactly as one might expect.
The actress added, “I think this is largely because there was no room for someone like me.”
“I thought, ‘Oh, all these great scripts are going to come my way; these great directors are gonna bang on my door,'” Berry said. “It didn’t happen. It was a little tough actually. They call it the Oscar curse. You’re expected to change award-worthy honors.”
Nearly two decades later, Berry said the moment was bigger than him and opened the doors for “every nameless, colorless woman” who won an Academy Award, frustrated that she is the only one.
“I thought Cynthia [Erivo, the star of ‘Harriet’] Was going to do it last year. I thought ruth [Negga, nominated for 2016’s ‘Loving’] It had a really great shot at it, “Berry said.” I thought there were women who could, of course, be right. I hoped they would, but why it didn’t go like this, I don’t have an answer. ”
It is all about conflicting feelings for the star.
“It’s one of my biggest heartbeats,” she said. “After dawn, I thought, ‘Wow, I was chosen to open a door.” And then, nobody is… ”
“I question, ‘Was that an important moment, or was it just an important moment for me?’ I wanted to believe that it was much bigger than me. It seemed so much bigger than me, mainly because I knew that others should have been before me and they were not. ”
It is not that Berry has not continued to work. He appeared in blockbuster franchises including “X-Men” and “John Wick”.
But she said she has never stopped fighting for roles.
She now resumed with her director in the upcoming film “Bruised” with a female MMA fighter, including her.
This is a new path Berry said she is loving.
“As a director, I have a part in the totality of every department,” she said. “I get a voice. It was different, and I really loved it.”
