X-Men Star Halle Berry Shares ‘Frustration’ on Working with Director Bryan Singer

Bryan Singer may have helped kickstart modern comic book films with X-Men, but the #MeToo era has branded him as one of the most unprofessional directors behind the camera, having terrible work ethic and multiple counts of sexual misconduct. Halle Berry, who had worked with Singer on X-Men shares her experience having to work with Singer.

Talking to Variety, Berry explains, "Bryan's not the easiest dude to work with… I mean, everybody's heard the stories — I don't have to repeat them — and heard of his challenges, and what he struggles with."

Berry goes on to say how angry she would be at Singer for not being present on the set. She continues:

"I would sometimes be very angry with him… I got into a few fights with him, said a few cuss words out of sheer frustration… Sometimes, because of whatever he's struggling with, he just didn't always feel present… He didn't feel there. And we're outside in our little ‘X-Men' stage freezing our ass off in Banff, Canada, with subzero weather and he's not focusing. And we're freezing. You might get a little mad."

It's very complicated when you look at Singer's career because no matter how people say he's terrible on set, his movies always make bank in the box office, and studios are just eager to work with him. Even after allegations came out, he was said to be eyed to direct a Red Sonja movie.

For now, it looks like Singer won't be working anytime soon, but we'll just have to wait and see what happens moving forward. Worse people have found themselves back in the spotlight, but here's to hoping audiences won't allow that anymore.

As for Berry, her first directorial film, Bruised, is set to come out this month.
