Halle Berry brings one personality to Hollywood premiere of 'Frankie and Alice' [Updated]
"Frankie and Alice," which premiered Tuesday at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, stars Halle Berry as a multi-racial stripper struggling with multiple personality disorder -- and one of her personalities is a racist.
No wonder it's been called Oscar bait.
Cast members turning out in addition to Berry included Chandra Wilson, Joey Bothwell, Melanie Papalia, Adrian Holmes and Kira Clavell, keeping company with director Geoffrey Sax and screenwriter Cheryl Edwards.
Berry, also a "Frankie and Alice" producer, told Access Hollywood on the red carpet that as recently as six weeks ago she "wasn't sure this movie was going to see the light of day." The title was included on an Oscar reminder list in 2009, but was in fact not eligible for consideration that year. It screened at Cannes in May.
The film, based on a true story, opens Dec. 10 in L.A. It goes wide in U.S. theaters Feb. 4.
