Diabetic Halle Berry refuses to put on weight for roles

November 03, 2012 19:00 IST
Halle BerryHalle Berry has said that she would never pile on extra pounds for a film role, as she fears it would put her health in jeopardy. 

'My heart would say yes because I feel like I would do anything for my craft, but my brain would say no because I'm diabetic and what that might do to me on a health level could be really dangerous so that's probably the real reason I wouldn't,' Contactmusic quoted the 46-year-old as telling US talk show host Wendy Williams, when asked whether she would ever gain 100 pounds (45.36 kilograms)
for the perfect role. 

'Taking care of my health and keeping my weight a certain (level) is really very much a part of taking care of myself and being healthy and because I'm a mum now, I wouldn't take risks like that,' she said.
