Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry reveals in an artfully directed spot borrowing from the genre of the interview what her new, upcoming perfume Reveal is about (advance review forthcoming by the way.) Playing opposite actor Stephen Dorff who can be heard off-camera,...
...she was asked by director Richard Cooperman to play the scene by seeking inspiration in the love scene taking place between George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez in Steven Soderbergh's film, Out of Sight. The commercial was shot at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.
This, as you can see, is a lot of name-dropping, but they are all there in the press release for your enlightened information. Berry added, to blur the lines further and help maintain a sense of ambiguity it seems, that “It involved less acting than my other [commercials] because I got to be myself. I got to answer questions honestly, with my own sense of mystery, with my own wonderment about the world. I got to expose a part of my real self.”
