Unlike some other celebs, Halle Berry did not embarrass herself when asked about the Movement for Black Lives. The recently pregnant-not-pregnant knockout did say she was tired of hearing about Black Lives Matter ... with one redeeming caveat.

According to HipHollywood, Berry had this to say during Cannes:

In my world I get tired of people complaining about, “Oh black lives matter,” and they pontificate and pontificate about it, and I say, “Well, what are you doing about that? It may not seem significant to you, but that’s how we start. Have you called your local politicians, have you written a letter?”


She continued, “When they say they’ve done nothing, I say, ‘Well, don’t talk to me … because you are part of the problem, because you are sitting here spewing negativity and complaining.’”

So, yeah. Halle is all about that “Don’t talk about it; be about it” life.
