Halle Berry Once Revealed That She Began Hating Men Before Starring in ‘Catwoman’
The movie even taught Berry how to stop hating men at a time she was hurt after past relationships.
Halle Berry starred in the 2004 movie Catwoman, which was known for being panned by both critics and fans alike. But it was a movie Berry had very little regrets starring in given the personal benefits Catwoman had on her life.
Speaking to T magazine, Berry once explained why she felt she made such bad choices in men.

Berry has been through a few highly publicized and controversial relationships and marriages throughout her time in the spotlight. Some of the issues she’s had to deal with in her relationships have ranged from domestic violence to ex-lovers turned stalkers. After her marriage and divorce from Eric Benet, Berry vowed to never marry again after the experience.
Halle Berry began to hate men before starring in ‘Catwoman’
Berry was going through a particularly hard time after breaking up with her ex-husband Eric Benet. The r&b singer was married to Berry for a few years before they split due to Benet’s infidelities. The oscar-winner was filming Catwoman around that time, and throwing herself into her work helped her cope with this separation.
“I worked really, really hard on Catwoman. I got in the best shape of my life. I proved a lot of things to myself. I met Benjamin Bratt, who was an amazing man, and that was when I was in my ‘I hate men’ mode,” she said in a 2006 interview with Washington Post. “And Benjamin single-handedly restored my faith, and I thought, oh, I will date again someday. I was ready to ban men for life.”
Catwoman also helped Berry get over a hatred for men she was developing because of her dating experiences. Her Catwoman co-star played a significant part in healing the actor.
Berry once confided that she felt a certain level of guilt and responsibility for her past relationships. The actor had been divorced three times, with her last divorce being from fellow actor Olivier Martinez.
