Halle Berry Dishes on What it Means to Make It in Life and Work

Halle Berry is doing the media circuit to publicize her new movie, the odd and ambitious “Cloud Atlas,” in which she plays six different characters, but she knows she needs to have all eyes on her as part of her profession—movie star—Berry confessed during an interview on “Good Morning America” that she finds life in a “fishbowl” to be tiresome.

Berry, an Academy Award-winning actress, stars with Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant in “Cloud Atlas,” a film that takes viewers on a twisting and turning journey over centuries, in different land with many different characters, in a plot where the viewer is challenged to figure out the links that connect them all. The film opens on Friday—and with a budget that was estimated at $100 million, Berry and the other big-name stars need to do as much pub as they can to make some of that money back for the filmmakers.

When asked in an interview with Cameron Mathison whether she “had it made,” Berry got somewhat philosophical in her answer.

“Well, it depends what having it made means,” said Berry, 46. “You know, do I have an amazing daughter that I’m wildly proud of who’s the love of my life? Then, okay, then, I have it made. A career that I love? Then, okay, I have it made. Um, amazing friends and family? Then, okay, I have it made. There’s certain things about my life that do make me feel like I have it made.”
