Halle Berry Plants A Big Kiss On Lena Waithe

Who better to give a pep talk than Oscar winner Halle Berry?

The actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she surprised guest host Lena Waithe with a kiss and words of encouragement.

“I know that you are a force of nature. You are a beautiful African-American queen going after everything that is hers! And, Lena, tonight you are a writer, an actor, a producer, and tonight you are a late-night comedian and you’re about to slay,” Berry told Waithe before planting a big kiss on the writer-producer.

Waithe later shared a snap of herself behind Kimmel’s desk, writing, “Grateful to @jimmykimmellive for allowing me to house sit tonight. It was a dream come true. And uh @halleberry…thanks for making my other dream come true.”

I grew up watching late night tv. Single parent household. 🤷🏾‍♀️ – my favorite was @arseniohall. I got to fist bump with him last Friday. Which, I think, was God’s way of wishing me luck. I tried to channel him. Grateful to @jimmykimmellive for allowing me to house sit tonight. It was a dream come true. And uh @halleberry … thanks for making my other dream come true. Don’t be surprised if I add another gig to my resume. Love y’all. And I mean that shit. And grateful to @fearofgod for the exclusive kicks. They gave me wings.
