Halle Berry, after more than a decade of Hollywood superstardom, told ET at her 'Frankie and Alice' premiere that she will now establish herself as a master thespian on the opposite coast.
The actress revealed on Tuesday that she will star in a play called 'The Mountaintop' alongside Samuel L. Jackson as her next major project. This will be Halle's Broadway debut.
But before she hits the live stage, Halle dished to ET on her disturbing role in her new movie: "This was definitely a challenge, but as an actor it's really one of those challenges that you just relish," Halle said.
'Frankie and Alice' revolves around Frankie Murdoch (Halle), a young woman who suffers from multiple personality disorder.
"It was a lot of work, you know, instead of creating one character it was creating three, but it was something that I desperately wanted to do," said the Oscar winner.
Eighteen-year-old actress Vanessa Morgan made her feature film debut in the movie portraying a younger Halle.
"It was very intimidating for sure, having such an inspiring role model I was so honored to be able to play her as a young girl," said Vanessa. "I was so nervous on set when [Halle] was there watching me, but I think it made me a better actor -- her motivating me, showing me some tricks and stuff like that."
Vanessa gushed over her mentor's chances of securing another Academy Award, saying, "She's an amazing actress and I definitely think that it's a great possibility that she's going to get the Oscar."
Halle seemed to be content whether she won a statuette or not, saying, "I'm just happy the movie is coming out. Two months ago I didn't know if it would see the light of day, so the fact that I'm at the premiere of it tonight is just cherry on my top right now."
'Frankie and Alice' opens in Los Angeles Dec. 10 and will be released nationwide in February.
