Back in 2019, Hollywood buzzed with the exhilarating anticipation of 'John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.' But more than the action and thrill, it was the heartwarming camaraderie between Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry that took center stage.
The mutual marvel of Hollywood icons
In a sea of press conferences and promotional events, a particular New York presser stood out. Halle Berry, exuding the strength and finesse of Sofia, the assassin she portrayed, expressed her reverence for Reeves. She candidly shared her ambition to "earn the right to be in the same room as Keanu" while prepping for the movie. But Keanu, ever the humble Hollywood icon of the ‘90s, didn't skip a beat. “Oh come on Halle, you’re an inspiration,” he replied, a reflection of the respect he held for the Catwoman actress.
His words were more than just polite reciprocation. Turning to Berry, Reeves remarked, "When you come on screen, there’s an authenticity, an intimacy, a strength. But there’s a mystery. There’s always a mystery to you.” For many, this encapsulated the mutual admiration and respect between two of Hollywood's biggest names.
Berry’s 'Bullet' point of view
Yet, the praise wasn't just about acting chops. Halle Berry was every bit the action star as Reeves in "John Wick 3". A highlight reel shared on the film's official Instagram showcased her unparalleled gun-handling skills. Many fans, including this old-school movie enthusiast, can still recall those fiery comments. One Instagram aficionado rightly pointed out, "She’s not playing around. Halle Berry’s a surgeon with those guns.”
Despite her expansive action-movie resumé, encompassing roles from Bond Girl to X-Men alum, Berry acknowledged the uniqueness of her "John Wick 3" experience. “The training was like nothing I’ve ever experienced... Being in it was life-changing.”
As we reminisce about that era, it's evident that "John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum" wasn't just another action film.
