7. Halle Berry wants to play Angela Davis?
Halle Berry might be a little out of character for her dream role. The Cloud Atlas star again expressed her desire to play civil rights icon Angela Davis.
“Her story is so fascinating,” Halle told InStyle magazine recently. “I would love to bring it to the screen. I would pick her brain to have a better understanding of her affiliation with the Black Panthers and that period from the 1960s.”
She first mentioned her desire to play Angela in 2011 when she told Jet, “I’ll probably never get to play it in my life and I am going to be sad until the day I die, but I really want to play Angela Davis, badly,” she said.
