HALLE BERRY REVEALS HER . . . SECRET TO HOT SEX ON SCREEN
'Now I'm really at the party' | Film | The Guardian
Halle Berry can only laugh - even now a little hysterically - when she is asked what went through her mind when she heard her name read out on Oscar night. Her eyes widen. I know what happened after that because I've seen the video. But when they said my name I looked at my mom and I looked at my husband and I can't even remember seeing their faces. Berry's acceptance speech was certainly memorable.
When Thornton dropped by HuffPost Live to discuss his Emmy nomination for "Fargo," he and host Ricky Camilleri chatted about what it was like to film that scene, which has become one of the most popular sex scenes on the Internet. There's obviously some excitement in filming an intimate moment with one of Hollywood's sexiest women, but Thornton said because the film was so dark, he felt "pretty exposed" rather than titillated. Still, it was a thrill to work on, he said. I would have written 'Monster's Ball' myself immediately," he said.

I edited the entire section for clarity, grammar and style. I altered the text in the summary from: In facing these hurdles, Leticia drinks frequently and is thereby unable to pay her bills, leading to an eviction notice. I made the change because there's no clear message that Leticia drinks frequently, now or in the past, or that her drinking is part of her financial difficulties at all. I also think it's important to point out the loss of her car as her inability to pay for the car's maintenance, as well as her house payments, were both discussed in the scene when she visits her husband in prison. The loss of the car was what led her to choose to walk home the night her son was killed and both the loss of the car and the house are the only real signs she is in a bad financial situation anyway.
