Most celebrities have mastered the art of praising any and all projects they've been involved with. Even with movies that are dead on arrival, the stars are often seen trying to talk them up on the talk show circuit. So fans were delighted when Halle Berry was very candid on "Chelsea Lately" about what she called the Hollywood "crapshoot."
Sometimes a movie just comes out terrible. "You don't expect it to be as bad as it is sometimes," she said.
But, as Chelsea Handler pointed out, "Even when a movie ends up crappy, other good things can come out of it. You met your fiance on a movie?î
"On a sh*t movie," Berry agreed.
That film was "Dark Tide," which came out in March 2012 and grossed less than $500,000. With a budget of $25 million, that's an epic disaster.
Still, that's where Berry met and fell in love with her co-star Olivier Martinez, and that's got to be worth at least the other $24.5 million!
Halle Berry can currently be seen in "Cloud Atlas," which made nearly $10 million in its opening weekend alone. "Chelsea Lately" airs every weeknight at 11 p.m. ET on E!
