Halle Berry got candid about her friendship with Angelina Jolie and how they bond over their unusual circumstances.
The Catwoman alum, who is set to co-star and co-produce the film Maude v Maude with Jolie, told Variety at the Red Sea Film Festival in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia that the two stars “had a rocky start.”
“We had a rocky start and I think that is going to serve us well in our screen time together,” said Berry.
The X-Men actress, 57, added that she is “thrilled to work with another woman and craft a story with our sensibility and from our point of view. She is formidable.”
Berry shared that the reason behind their rough start has a “good” story which she intends to reveal later. However, she did spill that her bond with Jolie, 48, was reinforced over the things they have in common.
“We’ve been talking a lot about divorces and exes. We bonded, let’s say that,” she shared.
Berry filed to divorce Olivier Martinez, with whom she shares a son, in 2015.
Jolie, for her part, split from Brad Pitt in 2016 after 12 years together. The exes have been involved in messy legal battles following their split.
Maude v Maude is an action-thriller film that will reportedly feature Berry and Jolie battling “physically and intellectually” on the big screen.
