Halle Berry: Cloud Atlas was ambitious

Dec 10 2012, 12:07am CST | by

Halle Berry thought 'Cloud Atlas' was far too ambitious at first.

The Oscar-winning actress was initially dubious about working with co-directors Tom Tykwer and Andy and Lana Wachowski in the drama adapted from David Mitchell's novel, which brings together several narratives to explore the interconnectedness of the human race.

She said: ''It was very ambitious. Something I had never read before. It was a challenge to do something unique that would test everybody in new ways. I thought, 'Wow, if they can pull this off and do it all independently, and get to really have their vision...' ''

Reminiscing about first meeting the directors, Halle added: ''I had a poster of '2001: A Space Odyssey' on the wall when I met with them. They said, 'I wanna make that'. I said, 'Are you out of your f**king mind?!... I'm in!' ''

The film - which also stars Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent and Susan Sarandon - uses heavy prosthetics to tell the story of several inter-connected characters throughout time, but although the shoot was tough, Halle's co-star Tom Hanks insisted the mood on set was far from glum.

Tom enthused: ''From the get-go we knew it was going to be very big. That the engineering was going to be tough. That the logistics were going to be very hard. They seemed so happy to see us every morning. It wasn't like, here comes Mr. Wacky-head, who's going to shout out his jokes. It was, 'You're here! We get to have more fun!' ''

RATINGS RAT RACE: ‘Extant’ Steady In Week 2, ‘SYTYCD’ & ‘ Motive’ Down, ‘Big Brother’ Tops Night In Demo

Halle Berry Visits "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"
CBS has made a bet that it can own Wednesdays this summer with its teaming of veteran reality shoe Big Brother (2.0/8) and freshman sci-fi thriller Extant (1.5/5). If last night was any gauge, the network might be holding a winning ticket. Now granted, with the exception of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance (1.04) there wasn’t a lot of competition. Still, CBS easily won primetime both among Adults 18-49 with a 1.5/ ...

Halle Berry Visits "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"
The television world was very busy yesterday with the announcement of the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations but it also pretty packed in primetime last night as well. After a quiet Thursday last week because of the July 4th holiday, all of the Big 4 were playing originals last night. With just Big Brother (2.0/7) on, CBS was the lightest of all the networks originalswise. Having said that, the second elimination of the voyeuris ...

RATINGS RAT RACE: CBS’ Halle Berry-Starrer ‘Extant’ Debuts OK

Jul 10 2014 10:21am CDT | Source: Deadline

Halle Berry Visits "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"
Migrating movie stars did very well in today’s Emmy Awards nominations, so this time next year might be very bright for Halle Berry and her new sci-fi thriller Extant (1.7/6). However, sticking to the present for now, the debut last night of the Steven Spielberg executive produced CBS astronaut series didn’t exactly soar in a 9 PM time slot with only the second hour of So You Think You Can Dance as original competition. Compared to CBS’ last big su ...
