Halle Berry was promoting her new movie, Things We Lost in the Fire, on Jay Leno last Friday when audience members say she made an anti-semitic joke. The remark came during a segment where she was showing distorted pictures of herself that she made on her Mac.
According to one audience member, “She introduced the first photo by saying, ‘Here’s where I look like my Jewish cousin!’ – it was a picture of her with a huge, distorted nose. No one laughed, and Jay nervously said, ‘I’m glad you said that and not me.’ When the show aired, they cut out her ‘Jewish’ comment and added a laugh track to the bit.”
Berry, who even offered to call Page Six’s source and apologize in person, said, “It was just a lighthearted segment that was meant to make fun of myself. There was a picture where I said I looked like Monica Lewinsky and one where I said I looked like Jay. It was just supposed to be a silly segment. I am so sorry, and I apologize.”
Whoa, hold on a second Halle Berry. I can’t believe this. You have a cousin? That means she must be kind of from the same gene pool. Which means she could be really hot. Your cousin and I should totally get together because I really like having sex with atrociously hot women. It’ll be a perfect match. As long as she’s hot. She’s hot… right?
