Halle Berry has opened up about her foot injury on the set of new movie Cloud Atlas, revealing she had resigned herself to the fact she’d be fired after breaking five bones two days into shooting.
She was in hospital when filmmakers Tom Tykwer and Andy and Lana Wachowski asked for a meeting with the Oscar winner – and Berry admits she feared the worst.
She tells WENN, “It was a real bummer for everybody involved. I felt like such an idiot because I was being carried around by this guy. It was so physical, what I had to do, I thought there’s no way I’m going to be able to do this, and I thought I was going to be recast. I sat in my bed, foot up in the air.
“I got a call saying that Tom, Andy and Lana wanted to come and talk to me and I thought they were going to give me my walking papers and say, ‘Love you but we’re bringing in Angela Bassett or somebody!’ I thought, ‘I’ll be gracious and take it,’ but they came in and said they really wanted me to stay and work this out.
“They said, ‘(Co-star) Tom (Hanks) wants you too.’ He had to go back and shoot in Majorca (Spain) when we were supposed to be done. It was a big shift and everybody sort of rallied around. With a lot of tape and wrapping around my foot, I found ways to grin and bear it and get through it.”
