Actors Whose Careers Tanked After Winning an Oscar

For some, an Oscar is a ticket to a whole new realm of opportunity. For others, not so much. Halle Berry was the first ever African American to win a Best Actress Oscar — of course the next year she won the honor of kissing Adrien Brody when he accepted his own award (and if not for his good working relationship with Wes Anderson keeping him afloat, Brody would be on this list, too) — but nowadays Berry has a stronger connection to rap songs than award-winning films.

Quite honestly, while pulling this list together, a pattern emerged fairly quickly. Every single person on this list, whose career either stalled or totally died after their win, is either a woman (particularly over 30) and/or a person of color. Hollywood can be an ugly place sometimes — and these nine talented people know that all too well. Check out a list of talented performers who haven’t been able to replicate that Oscar magic after taking home a statue.

It may not help that Renee Zellweger looks drastically different than she did in Cold Mountain. The Gossip Table has more on her recent change in appearance.

‘He’s Delicious’: Halle Berry Praises Husband Olivier Martinez Amid Rocky Marriage Rumors

‘He’s Delicious’: Halle Berry Praises Husband Olivier Martinez Amid Rocky Marriage Rumors

Halle Berry DeliciousHALLE Berry insists her marriage isn’t on the rocks.

The actress couldn’t stop gushing about husband Olivier Martinez when she spoke to Extra TV in a promotion of her new movie, Frankie and Alice.

The actress, 47, said she watched her husband’s premiere on “Revenge” last week and was excited to follow his arc on the show.

“I’m very proud of him,” she said. “I think he’s delicious.”

It had been claimed that Halle and Olivier have been fighting for months — and he has moved out of their Beverly Hills home.

“Olivier thinks Halle is too focused on work and losing the baby weight instead of their family,” says a source.

“He’s been crashing at a friend’s house.”

Olivier was spotted with a friend on March 12, at Halle’s favorite restaurant RivaBella, and eyewitnesses say he seemed down.

“He kept messing with his wedding ring … he didn’t say much,” said the source.

Four days later, Olivier jetted out of LA alone.

“Halle doesn’t want him in the house unless he can be civil… at this point, the chances for a full reconciliation look grim,” blabbed the insider.

Halle Berry: ‘Breastfeeding Helped me Lose Baby Weight’

Halle Berry: ‘Breastfeeding Helped me Lose Baby Weight’

halleberryHALLE Berry says breastfeeding helped her get back into shape after giving birth.

The actress, 47, welcomed a son, Maceo-Robert, in October.

“Every mother should breastfeed. It’s the quickest way to shed the initial weight and then you have to eat right,” she told US TV show Extra.

Berry points out that her daughter Nahla is relishing her new role as a big sister.

“She’s very serious about her big sister role. It’s like one of her doll babies came alive,” the mom of two shares.

“She gets to take care of him, feed him, change his diapers, play with him, dress him up in different clothes like five times a day because she can, so she loves it.”
