Halle Berry is prepping for a huge step in her career, but first she's gotta prove herself on the mat.
The actress spent Thursday afternoon training with UFC star Cris Cyborg at her gym in Huntington Beach, CA. It was recently announced that Berry will be taking on her directorial debut in "Bruised," an MMA themed drama in which she's also starring.
Berry will also be featured in the upcoming, "John Wick 3," which wrapped filming the other week in Morocco. Berry had thanked Keanu Reeves and the crew for a memorable experience, but wasted no time getting back to work as she preps for her new film.
After training with Cyborg, Berry said, "From the red carpet to the ring so inspired by your tenacity."
