Halle Berry had to answer some tough questions about her sexuality after she accidentally showed her teenage daughter a lesbian sex scene she was in.

The 55-year-old Hollywood actress plays a UFC fighter who sleeps a man – and a woman – in the Netflix hit Bruised.

And she said Nahla, 13, was stunned when she saw the love scenes at an early screening, telling her superstar mom: ‘We need to have conversations.’

Halle, who made her directorial debut with the sports drama, revealed her editor unexpectedly jumped on the film’s hottest moment during the screening.

She said: “So Nahla is watching the love scene (with a man). She looks at me and she’s like, ‘Oh, whoa, mom. Really? Wow!’ So my editor, who’s sitting next to me not really realizing my daughter’s there, says, “Go to the second love scene, I want to see what that looks like.” a love scene with a woman.

“My daughter is like, ‘Whoa, mom, we need to have some conversations. You didn’t tell me.

“And I said, ‘Nahla, it’s a movie, none of that is true. Like, none of this is real”. It started a conversation – really for the first time – about what I do and play characters and what’s real and what’s not.

“She was like, ‘How do you do that?’ and, ‘How do you feel?’ I explained that these are some of the most difficult scenes actors do, the most awkward. It’s not always fun.

“So I had a real conversation with my daughter about it, about my sexuality, about my work in the company and how much I had to fight to make the film.”

Halle plays disgraced mixed martial arts fighter Jackie Justice, who makes a comeback while juggling personal issues.

A brief romance erupts between Jackie and tough trainer Bobbi Buddhakan (Sheila Atim) as she prepares to face bantamweight champion Lady Killer, played by real MMA fighter Valentina Shevchenko.

Even though the film has a 15-year certificate, Halle let her teenage daughter watch it to see the hard work she put in for the role.

Nahla is the daughter of her ex-boyfriend, Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, 45. Halle also has an eight-year-old son, Maceo, whose father is her ex-husband, French actor Olivier Martinez, 56, whom she divorced in 2015.

Halle said, “I asked Nahla, ‘Would you like to come see my movie? You may never see it on the big screen because it’s on Netflix. So I would really like you to see what I did”.

“I said, ‘That’s not quite appropriate for you, you’re 13. But you are my child, so I really want you to see what I worked so hard on and why I missed so much time with you.”

“The irony is that she only ended up seeing those two love scenes because the color was wrong, so the editor called it screening time.”

Another unique parenting experience came when she homeschooled her two children at their beachfront home in Malibu, California during lockdown in 2020.

Halle, who also has a pad in the Hollywood Hills, said, “I got so involved with my kids in a whole new way. I became a homeschooler and we had to find things to do around the house. Our creativity has gone to the next level.

“We have become closer as a family. My kids found ways to start getting along because they really had to talk to each other. They were friends.

Halle has spent her 30-year career convincing people that she’s more than a pretty face.

Now dating musician Van Hunt, 51, she revealed: “The truth is I can’t wait for someone to come along and say, ‘You’re talented’ or ‘You’re a good mother’. But I have always just people commenting on my appearance.

“I tried to fight and prove myself. But at 55, I’m tired of trying to fight all the time.

She won the Best Actress Oscar in 2002 for her role in the hard-hitting drama Monster’s Ball, making her the first black woman to raise the gong. But after her big win, she says “no script has arrived”.

While chatting with fellow actors Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes on their SmartLess podcast, Halle said, “I thought, ‘This is the highest award in our industry, it’s going to get me better opportunities.’ But nothing has changed.

“The script truck didn’t back up to my door. Because there was still no path for colored people.

“So I feel like this award means different things to different people. If you ask Nicole Kidman, she might have a different reality about what this award meant to her.

“But it didn’t mean that to me. I was not offered all these wonderful scripts with these great directors.

But Halle proudly recounted how her breakthrough win helped break down barriers and create opportunities for the next generation of on-screen talent.

She said: “If you look at our evolution from 20 years ago to today, black women are everywhere.

“They are in all kinds of roles. They take roles for men and turn them into women and become more inclusive. I think that moment inspired a lot of people to think differently and believe that anything was possible. So that way, I feel like it mattered.

“It’s always very rewarding and satisfying. And it reminds me that I’m doing my part through history. We all carry the ball as far as we can and hope the younger generation will pick it up and then go even further. This is what we want for our children.

“We always want our kids to be better, smarter, to go further than we could.”
