A lot goes into the promotion of a movie, especially if names like Oscar winner Halle Berry are attached. But one of the few touches of magic that truly glitter a movie PR trail are a celebrity pregnancy (or a post-baby body), which ensures press for days as people lean in for “bump watch.” Makers of The Call have the movie gods to thank for that with Halle’s pregnancy — and of course our cultural obsession with neck craning at famous pregnant lady bodies.
Daily Mail reports that Halle Berry has been in Brazil promoting her new film The Call, with plenty of tabloids hot on her heels to capture those baby bump shots. And when they’re not analyzing and scrutinizing every angle of her tummy, you best believe they’re looking at everything else:
…Halle Berry’s figure is certainly blossoming. The 46-year-old displayed her tiny baby bump in a sheer black top, which was highlighted even further by a leather belt as she promoted her new movie The Call in Brazil on Wednesday. The expecting actress glowed as she waved to fans at the Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio de Janeiro. And it seems that the Monster’s Ball star already has maternity dressing down pat, looking effortlessly cool and polished for her photo call. Mother-of-one Halle also rock a pair of black leather trousers and some monochrome stilettos. Keeping things effortless, she accessorised with some giant hoop earrings, some silver bangles and of course her engagement ring from fiance and father of her unborn child, Olivier Martinez.
And in case you didn’t glean that Halle Berry is pregnant from all that, the Mail tosses in an awkwardly worded “glowing with pregnancy health,” before describing how she wore “minimal makeup” and had styled her hair into “sassy spikes.”
Whoever is pocketing the money from this promotion sure are lucky ducks.
