Coronavirus or not, late night TV continues to plow on, providing much-needed entertainment with grainy call-ins and no audience laughs to bust up conversation because the show must go on.
On Tuesday night, Halle Berry spoke to Jimmy Fallon in an interview you can watch above. The talk consisted of quarantine anecdotes (because, really, what else do people have going on at the moment?) and also featured a pair of cameos from one of Jimmy's daughters. But, at the end, Berry told an interesting story about the time she almost choked to death on a fig until she was saved by Bond, James Bond, himself, Pierce Brosnan.
This particular case of almost choking to death came when Berry was portraying NSA agent/Bond girl Jinx Johnson in 2002's Die Another Day. Don't let the irony of that title be lost on you.
"I was doing a scene with Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day, and I was supposed to be all sexy and, like, trying to seduce him with a fig, and then I end up choking on it," Berry recalled. "He had to get up and do the Heimlich. So not sexy."
"You should've seen it. James Bond knows how to Heimlich. He was there for me," the Oscar winner continued. "He will always be one of my favorite people in the whole world."
Without any proof, let's chalk this up to something he learned on the set of Mrs. Doubtfire:
Watch Berry recall the anecdote at the 9:30 mark up top.
