Actors on Acting #2 : Halle Berry

Beyond the fame, money and glam of acting, there is the other side of acting. The business side which at its worst can be depressing and full of the isms that plague society. These quotes from Halle Berry reflect that.

There's art and there's commerce. You have to find a way to mesh the two. It's important to do the little movies just for the love of the art. But it's those big movies that take you around the world and make you globally famous.

My life went back to relatively what it was. The struggle was still the same. Maybe people took my calls a little quicker but it really didn't materialize into something magical that would open up all these doors for me.

Love the quote though- I think that it's important that we all continue to strive for our best, regardless of whether doors magically open for us or not.
