Halle Berry Walks Red Carpet at 2013 Oscars
Posted on February 25, 2013
Oscar winner Halle Berry was a presenter at the 2013 Academy Awards. Halle opened the segment celebrating the 50 year anniversary of James Bond. There was a montage of Bond clips and then Shirley Bassey belted out "Goldfinger." According to Deadline, all the actors who had played James Bond were then supposed to make an appearance, but Sean Connery refused because he says the producers of the franchise, the Broccoli family, owe him money. Pierce Brosnan refused because he's still mad at Barbara Broccoli for replacing him too early (he was replaced by the current Bond, Daniel Craig.). So the whole thing fell apart and the poorly edited Bond clip segement didn't help matters.
Halle said on the red carpet that she was dressed as a Bond girl. Viewed in that light, her black and silver beaded Atelier Versace gown makes sense.
