After a heated controversy, Halle Berry finally decided that she would not embody a transgender man in the movies.
On July 3, she was delighted to announce on Instagram that she was launching a new challenge in cinema: that of embodying “the character of a woman who is a trans character, so this is a woman who made a transition to the male sex“, as Variety reported.
After a few days of controversy, actress Halle Berry has finally given up on a possible new Oscar on her chimney. She, who was the first African-American to obtain this award in the history of cinema, recognized that history was now to be written without it …
First accused of having “mega“the role on which she is eyeing (associations explained to her that she should have used the masculine to speak of her character, since the felt gender prevails), she also received the wrath of the LGBT community who considers that she steals this role to a real transgender.
To cut short the outcry, the one who embodied “Catwoman“announced in a statement on Twitter that she was backing away. She wrote:”Over the weekend, I talked about the role of a transgender man I plan to play, and I would like to apologize. As a cisgender woman, I understand that I should not have considered this role, and that the transgender community should definitely have the opportunity to tell their own stories.“.
And to add: “I am grateful for the advice and conversations of the past few days and will continue to listen, learn and learn from this error. I promise to be an ally and to work for a better representation on the screen, in front and behind the cameras“.
