*Halle Berry says she has no regrets about starring in perhaps the biggest pothole on her Hollywood journey, “Catwoman.”

The superhero film was a critical and commercial flop upon its 2004 release and went on to earn multiple Razzie Award nominations, including a Worst Actress win for Halle – which she famously accepted in person.

Yet, in spite of the film’s reputation and the warnings of people around her, the 51-year-old insists that her “Catwoman” experience was positive.

“Everybody around me said, ‘Girl, don’t do it. It’s going to be the death of you. It’s going to end your career.’ But guess what I did? I followed my intuition and I did a movie called ‘Catwoman’ and it bombed miserably,” she recalled, as she accepted the 2018 Matrix Award from the New York Women in Communication on Monday.

“While it failed to most people, it wasn’t a failure for me because I met so many interesting people that I wouldn’t have met otherwise, I learned two forms of martial arts and I learned not what to do.”

She also admitted that she made “a s**t load of money that changed (my) life.”

Berry also told the crowd that she was initially nervous about accepting her Oscar-winning role in “Monster’s Ball” due to the “explicit” sex scene involved.

“When I read that script as a young artist, I was scared to death,” she said. “But I knew that this was a role that could change my life and help me reach that dream that I longed for since I was a little girl.”

  1. Well, let’s see, she single-handedly ruined “Catwoman” for D.C., while also completely ruining every installment of the X-Men franchise for Marvel, and her response is that she was embarrassed all the way to the bank? Of course she’d say that.
