Halle Berry may be a glamorous Oscar winner these days, but in her youth, she was an underage bartender! The 51-year-old actress opened up to Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night about her pre-Hollywood life as a bartender in Chicago.
“I wasn’t even old enough to be a bartender. I was in a big city, and I was 19 years old,” she recalled. “I wasn’t very good, but I ended up being good because I would say, ‘OK, so what do you want?’ And they would say, ‘Sex on the beach,’ and I would say, ‘Interesting, what is in a Sex on the Beach?’ And they would tell me, and I would just start pouring.”
But it wasn’t Berry’s fake ID that ultimately led her to get fired from the job.
“I put way too much alcohol in everything, so imagine the tips I got, but I lost my job in about three months,” she told Kimmel, laughing. “They were going through liquor like you would not believe.”
The mystery photographer might, in fact, be Berry’s new boyfriend, British music producer Alex Da Kid. The couple posed together on Berry’s Instagram, confirming their romance earlier this week. Shortly after they were spotted out in London together.
