Brody Surprises Berry With Kiss at Oscars
2 hours, 57 minutes ago
LOS ANGELES - Best-actor winner Adrien Brody created an amorous Oscar moment to remember when he grabbed presenter Halle Berry and planted a long kiss on the mouth of last year's best actress.
A stunned Berry was left openmouthed and gasping Sunday, although she appeared amused by Brody's enthusiasm after he won an Oscar for his role in "The Pianist." Looking on from the audience at the Kodak Theatre was Berry's husband, singer Eric Benet.
"Whoa, I bet they didn't tell you that was in the gift bag," Brody cracked.
Backstage, the 26-year-old Brody was asked about the smooch.
"Well, if you ever have an excuse to do something like that, that's it," he said. "I took my shot."
Did Berry kiss him back?
"Oh yeah," Brody said, grinning.
