Hollywood actress, Halle Berry has revealed that after attending the Golden Raspberry Awards in 2005 to accept the award for Worst Actress for 2004’s Catwoman, she “set that thing on fire” afterward.
Widely referred to as the Razzies and Razzie Awards, the Golden Raspberry Awards is a parody award show that honors the worst cinematic projects of the year.
The 55-year-old actress in an interview on Vanity Fair, said if she can collect an Oscar, she can also take a Razzie.
“I went to the Razzie [Awards] because I feel like we all take ourselves so seriously.
“If we get an award, if we get the Oscar, we somehow are made to feel like we’re somehow better than everybody else, but we’re really not. You were just chosen that year by your peers, and you were acknowledged for doing what they considered stellar work…If you find yourself face to face with a Razzie, does that mean you’re the worst actor there ever was? Probably not. You just got the piss taken out on you that year by a group of people that can.
“If I can show up to collect an Oscar when you’re honoring me, I can certainly show up to collect a Razzie when you say, good try, but do better. I always learned that if you can’t be a good loser, then you don’t deserve to be a good winner. So I went there and made fun of myself. I had a great time and then I set that thing on fire. That’s what I did!”
The Oscar winner famously starred as the DC character in the action movie, which saw her uncovering a sinister plot within a cosmetics company run by Sharon Stone’s villainous Laurel Hedare.
Catwoman received poor reviews by critics when it was released nearly two decades ago.
