Halle Berry - world's clumsiest actress?

I know it's wrong to laugh at another's misfortune, but geez -- this woman needs to wear a helmet or something!

Halle Berry 'just fine' after accident
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Halle Berry was taken to a hospital after colliding with a piece of set equipment while filming a running scene for "Catwoman" but is now back at work, production spokesman Joe Everett said.
The accident was minor, Everett said Tuesday, denying reports that the Oscar-winning "Monster's Ball" actress was hit in the head with a microphone boom and spent six hours in a hospital waiting room.
"She had to maneuver past a piece of equipment, a set piece, and she didn't quite run past it, but she's just fine," he said. "She was taken to hospital Saturday night, treated and released and was at work again Monday morning."
Berry, 35, broke her arm last year while shooting "Gothika" in Montreal and injured her eye on the set of "Die Another Day."

Perhaps she was in a hurry fleeing the scene of another accident?

Subconscious need for publicity?

I hope I do not trip and fall into a movie theater that "CatWoman" is playing in.

Has Halle Berry ever been the lead role in a movie that did really well?

Monster's Ball cost 4 million to make and brought in 32 million in the box office, but I would not call that a big hit. Made lots of money, but was not a big hit.

I believe Catwoman is going to bomb.

I can't believe they are going through with making this. Its going to take alot of good advertising for this movie not the flop. Unless of course it actually turns out to be a good movie. Halle berry is a good actress, and super hot, but this is "catwoman" for f*** sakes. I think even if i heard this is the greatest movie ever made, it would still be hard to go see, just because catwoman is such a stupid idea to begin with.

Nothing wrong with the idea of "catwoman"... Halle Berry is the bad idea here.

She is probably the first black woman to be involved in so many accidents.

Clumsy? Perhaps.
Actress? Not really.

It's just publicity to bring attention to the bad movies that she is making and have gotten bad press already....

She keeps getting injured so that people won't forget about her...or someone's beating the hell out of her all the time!

If Halle Berry was your daughter or sister, I bet you insensitive brutes wouldn't be joking about her.

Oh it was a joke and meant as such.
I totally forgot that she used to get hit by her ex husband...David Justice and the one before that, so apparently she needs to choose her men more wisely.
and I'm not taking it back!

That sucks. Accidents like that should only happen to "actresses" that deserve it, like Nicole Kidman. I wouldn't lose a bit of sleep if someone dropped a safe, er....I mean boom mike on her.
