Everyone from Kanye West (“New Workout Plan”) to J. Cole (“Higher”) to Kendrick Lamar (“Money Trees”) have mentioned Berry in their songs, but in 2018, the actress’ reach went to the football field when former Rams quarterback Jared Goff used her name as an audible. Halle was understandably confused as to why she was being attached to this particular change in the playcall.

Hold up. @JaredGoff16 @RamsNFL - What is a “Halle Berry”?? 🤔😂 https://t.co/nQyaWHQRrn

Halle went on to share a portion of her appearance on Hot Ones where she was asked about her favorite rap song name-drop, and the Oscar winner explained why she couldn’t pick one over another. 

“I think of these references, like my children, in a way,” she responded. “There’s no way I could pick one. I love all these artists. I’m always flattered when any one of them include me, and that they still remember me, or even know who I am. So, to pick one would be like picking my daughter over my son. I love them all.”

Later this year, Netflix will premiere the MMA drama Bruised where Berry makes her directorial debut. Following its screening at the Toronto Film Festival, the streaming giant shelled out close to $20 million, perVariety, to acquire the rights to the film.
