Actress Halle Berry recently opened up to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show and shared a really surprising secret. She said that during filming for the 2002 film Die Another Day, her co-star Pierce Brosnan saved her life!
It all went down when she started choking while filming a romantic scene as her character, Bond girl character Jinx Johnson. "I was supposed to be all sexy, trying to seduce him with a fig," she said. “I end up choking on it and he had to get up and do the Heimlich.”
Not surprisingly, the act made a huge impression on Berry. "He was there for me, he will always be one of my favorite people in the whole world," she gushed. Here, the two of them are seen at the film's premiere in Los Angeles.
This wasn't Ms. Berry's first brush with danger on the set of a film. Late in 2019, she was "slightly injured" making her new movie Bruised. Filming of the mixed martial arts film was even postponed for a few days after she was hurt during a fight scene at Mack's Elite Heat Boxing Gym in Newark, New Jersey. Here's to safer roles in the future, Halle!
