Many actors say they couldn't imagine doing anything else for a job. However, with successful acting often comes fame and wealth, and with it the ability to try out some interesting new ideas. For these celebrities, that meant taking a seat in the director's chair.
For Halle Berry, that means sitting in two chairs at once! The actress is making her directorial debut with the upcoming film 'Bruised,' in which she also stars as the lead role. The film, a drama about a washed-up MMA fighter, is already bound to be a success as Netflix has reportedly offered nearly US$20 million for the worldwide distribution rights. “I am speechless," Berry tweeted. "Thank you @netflix for believing in my vision, cannot wait for y’all to finally see #BruisedTheMovie.”
