Halle Berry Locks Lips With Lena Waithe On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’
Lena Waithe’s guest host spot on Jimmy Kimmel Live was one for the books. But one of the most talked about moments was her now infamous kiss with Halle Berry, who popped up to show support for Waithe. Berry appeared after Waithe expressed how nervous she was to host the show, which marked her first late-night gig, during her monologue. Waithe told her she needed a little pick me up. She used Berry’s 2002 Oscar acceptance speech as an example.
“I need some inspiration. Like that Oscars speech you gave, that got me hyped. I need you to give me some of that Halle Berry juice.”
And that’s exactly what she did.
“Lena, you know I know you, right? We’ve worked together. So I know that you are a force of nature. You are a beautiful African American queen. You are everything that is her. Lena, tonight you are a writer, an actor, a producer and tonight you are a late-night comedian. You about to slay this show! And you’re already winning girl because you’re dressed way better than Jimmy ever was.”
While that seemed to be enough for Waithe, Berry wanted to seal the deal. So she kissed her! And Waithe was clearly shocked.
Berry said Waithe could return the favor by promoting her new movie, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
