Halle Berry Gave Lena Waithe a Big Kiss For Luck on Her First Night Hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live!


Whereas Jimmy Kimmel was off co-hosting the reside Norman Lear tribute on Wednesday, he left his speak present in good fingers by actor and comic Lena Waithe to visitor host Jimmy Kimmel Reside! whereas he was away. Whereas Waithe has plenty of experience in entrance of a digital camera due to engaged on Grasp of None and The Chi it felt like one thing was lacking.

Fortunately Waithe was ready for that risk and pushed on the “Berry Button”, which summoned the Oscar-winning actress to the stage. Berry appeared and requested Waithe, “Baby, what can I do for you?”

“I want some inspiration. Like that Oscars speech you gave, that obtained me hyped,” Waithe replied. “I need you to give me some of that Halle Berry juice.”

Berry was more than pleased to conform and launched right into a heartfelt, inspirational monologue for the visitor host. “Lena, you know I know you, right? We’ve worked together, so I know that you are a force of nature,” Berry stated. “You’re a beautiful African American queen.”

She continued, “Lena, tonight you are a writer, an actor, a producer and tonight you are a late-night comedian. You about to slay this show!” If that shifting speech didn’t get Waithe pumped, Berry gave it yet one more go: “And you are already winning, girl, because you are dressed way better than Jimmy ever was.”

The John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum star wasn’t achieved but. She checked out Waithe a second and stated, “I think you need something else.” She then planted a giant outdated kiss on Waithe, earlier than pulling away and declaring to Waite: “Now you’re good!”

Whereas it’s unclear whether or not the kiss was deliberate or impromptu, Waithe was completely satisfied to share the second on Twitter as a teaser for her internet hosting gig. Clearly, Waithe must be given her personal speak present quickly so she will be able to push “The Berry Button” any time she needs or wants or simply feels prefer it.
