The 2004 film was estimated to bring in $100 million but only grossed $40 million. While in New York giving a speech at the Matrix Awards Berry remembers how friends and family told her not to do it.
“Everybody around me said, ‘Girl don’t do it, it’s gonna be the death of you, it’s gonna end your career,” said Berry. I followed my intuition and I did a movie called ‘Catwoman’ … and it bombed! Miserably”
However, she explained that, “While it failed to most people, it wasn’t a failure for me … I met so many interesting people that I wouldn’t have met otherwise, I got to learn two forms of martial arts and I got to learn what not to do, and learning what not to do is as important as learning what to do.”
I mean it’d be pretty awesome if you could learn martial arts while meeting awesome people right? Oh and don’t forget about the money.
“And I got that gift, and I got a s–tload of money that changed my life,” explained Berry. An s-load of money can change a lot of people’s lives!
