The role of the crack-cocaine addict in the drama released in 1991 became the debut acting experience for Halle.
Today the internationally recognized 47-year-old star star reveals how she was preparing for the role, Channel 24 reports.
According to her words, she didn’t want to experiment with drug preparation or taking in order to understand her character, instead she decided to remain unwashed throughout production.
When asked about the Jungle Fever, Berry said:
“I didn’t smoke crack. I drew the line there but it was 23 years ago so I was brand spanking new and at that time all I could really do was kind of try to be it, to be it so I didn’t shower for the whole entire time that we shot that movie, so that was probably about eight weeks. It was gnarly, it was gnarly. Certain body parts got washed, let’s just say that.”
Meanwhile the Hollywood movie directed by Spike Lee gained mostly positive reviews from critics and became a great start for Halle Berry’s career.
