Halle Berry has pulled out of a role in an upcoming film in which she played a transgender man. Berry said she was preparing for the role during an interview on Instagram Live. She faced backlash online for misgendering the character several times during the interview. On Monday night, she issued an apology saying “the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories.”

Lucy Liu opened up about losing opportunities due to systemic racism early on in her carrier. During an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald she said she did not get a lot of auditions when she first came to Los Angeles compared to her white friend at the time. “I think I was just too naive and didn’t know what was ahead of me or what I was going to be up against,” Lucy shared. “Then I got really lucky with a few jobs, which put me in rooms for auditions where I looked like no other woman in the room. I thought, ‘I don’t even understand why I’m here, but I’m going to give it my all.’”

Kevin Hart celebrated his 41st birthday on Monday. Hart shared on social media how lucky he felt to get that opportunity. The  comedian shared a picture of himself  captioned, ”So blessed & so thankful to see the age 41. I’m lucky to be alive. There will never be another day that just goes by in my life that’s not treated with the highest level of respect and appreciation.”
