ET Now: Why Halle Berry's Latest Role Was Nearly Unbelievable

Halle Berry stars as Frankie in her upcoming film Frankie & Alice, based on the true story of a woman suffering from multiple-personality disorder.
The film, in theaters April 4, was actually shot five-and-a-half years ago. But when Halle sat down with ET, she was adamant that the film still holds a very special place in her heart.
"This is a real woman who suffered," she said. "That right away gave it gravitas for me. If it weren't real I might have to question, 'Would a black woman really be a white woman and think she'd be racist?' But because it was real and I got to know that for sure by conversations I had with the real Frankie, I knew it was real."
But promoting Frankie & Alice isn't the Oscar-winning actress's only job at the moment. She is a doting mother-of-two to 5-month-old son Maceo and 6-year-old daughter Nahla, and is currently filming her upcoming summer CBS series Extent.
