Halle Berry has pulled down to play a transgender man in forthcoming film after facing an online backlash.

The Catwoman star was criticised heavily after revealing in an Instagram live interview earlier on Friday (3 July) that she had been preparing for the mysterious role.

“[It’s] a character where the woman is a trans character, so she’s a woman that transitioned into a man,” said Berry.

“She’s a character in a project I love that I might be doing.”

Berry was called out for misgendering the character multiple times during the interview.

“Who this woman was is so interesting to me, and that will probably be my next project,” she said.

Berry further added that she will use her voice to promote better representation in the film industry, saying: “I vow to be an ally.”
