Celebrities who train MMA: Halle Berry
One of the toughest actresses in Hollywood is Halle Berry. Berry has starred in some of the biggest films in history and has played some of the toughest and most physically active roles in her career. From films like Catwoman and X-Men, Berry has to be in her top physical shape. The way she gets into shape can vary, but lately, Berry has been training and hanging with some of the UFC’s biggest star.
Berry is currently in training for an upcoming movie where she will play an MMA fighter, the movie is called Bruised. Berry will not only star in the film, but she will also direct it. In training for a mixed martial arts based film, Berry will have to go through extreme training. Although where this training will occur has not been made public, Berry is very close with former UFC featherweight champion Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino.
Berry accompanied Justino to the Octagon for her last title fight against UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes. She was also seen spending time with Justino at her gym in California. After the loss, Berry reached out to Justino on Instagram.
“It’s often easy to be great in victory, but who we are in defeat is the truest measure of our character,” Berry wrote. “Cris is a champ in the cage and a champ in life! Congratulations Amanda Nunes – she and Cris put their hearts in it last night and deserve total respect. I wish everyone had the opportunity I had last night to hear Cris’s thoughts and words as she reflected on the fight – her light was as bright as ever! She is a quality human, a true warrior, and a total inspiration. You are loved by so many and you’ll rise again champ!!
Berry is an avid fan of the sport a well. She can be found cage side at big events and now she will be seen inside the cage as well, at least on the big screen.
Her fandom reached new heights when she starred in Bruised, an MMA movie.
