Halle Berry moved Lady Gaga to tears during her Critics’ Choice Awards #SeeHer acceptance speech. Halle told the crowd she was proud to be ‘living in this moment’ where women are telling their stories.
“I’ve been in the business for 30 years, and I used to think that if I could play the part of a white man, then I was winning. But you know what, wanna know why that didn’t work? Because, if you didn’t know, I’m not a white man,” Halle said during her speech.
And she continued, “So, for those roles to work, they would have to be substantially changed. It would have to be written with the reality of my journey, in all of its beauty and all of its pain.” She added, “This is why I am so grateful to be standing and living in this moment where women are standing up and we are telling our own stories.”
Halle attended the 2022 Critics’ Choice Awards with boyfriend Van Hunt. He looked up at Halle lovingly as she made her heartfelt acceptance speech. The couple sweetly held hands on the red carpet.
