Won’t pile on weight for meaty roles: Berry

Halle Berry says she would be game for any acting challenge, but piling on extra weight is not something she's willing to try to embody a character.

She says that she won't do it for health reason, Contactmusic reported.

Asked whether she would ever gain 100 pounds for a perfect role, she said: "My heart would say yes because I feel like I would do anything for my craft, but my brain would say no because I'm diabetic and that might put me on a really dangerous health level so that's probably the real reason I wouldn't."

"Taking care of my health and keeping my weight a certain level is really very much a part of taking care of myself and being healthy and, because I'm a mum now, I wouldn't take risks like that," she added.

Actors Robert De Niro, Jared Leto, Renee Zellweger, Russell Crowe and Rob McElhenney are no strangers to the fatty feat. They have all previously piled on weight for meaty movie roles.
