I'd give her an injection.

It forced her to cut back to three cans of frosting per week.
 
2012-11-02 09:51:49 AM  
Um, yeah. That's why when everyone in the X-Men movies had to go to boot camp to bulk up for filming she was the only one that got a pass.

I didn't know she was diabetic. I wonder if she's Type 1 or Type 2, and whether she controls it through diet alone or has to take insulin.

It was an unfortunate comment, but she could do valuable work educating people about the disease and raising money for research.

Being diabetic does tend to force one to make healthy choices or die.

FTFA: It's kind of easy to overlook the bizarre comment, slipping out at about the 1:45 mark on this YouTube video of the nearly 10 minute interview.

But anyone who suffers from diabetes would probably say that they would much rather not have the "little" disease. Even if it brought the appearance of eternal youth and lasting physical beauty.

What do you think? Was Halle Berry wrong to imply that having diabetes has been good for her career?


Jesus... have we really become such nincompoops? As a society, I mean. She was not saying Diabetes is good. She was saying that Diabetes made her focus on her health and live a healthy lifestyle. It's the HEALTHY LIFESTYLE that's been good for her, you idiot reporter. Stop trying to incite a dumb controversy.

She's a Type 1. I know this because my wife (also a Type 1) knows this. Every Type 1 has to take insulin because their bodies don't produce it.

I don't think it was an unfortunate comment at all. She's saying that because she has this disease, she has to take better care of herself. I'm sure she'd rather not have it at all.

I didn't either. I'll have to send this to my wife whose been type 1 since she was 7. It seems weird that you don't hear more about/from these people more often. Bret Michaels and Jay Cutler are also T1s but you never hear them mention it. They may do something but I've never heard about it. These people could really pull in a lot of cash for JDRF or whatever.

How is this a FAIL subby? Having an incurable disease makes her think more about her health and well-being than a regular person and thus she lives a healthier lifestyle than most. Her youth and beauty are a side-effect of that healthy lifestyle, not BECAUSE she has Diabeties. Seriously, if everyone watched their health like that I'm sure we'd all be looking young and trim.

There was actually a bit of a kerfuffle a few years back when she said she was no longer a Type 1 diabetic, but had become a Type 2 instead Link.

My youngest son is the same way. He's 20 and looks abut 14. He works out daily so he looks like a very buff 14 year old. His illness has actually helped me to eat healthier too since I ended up with T2.

My partner is a type-1 and he looks like he's 17 (he's 31). Sometimes I have a mild freak-out that people are going to think I'm his mom, but it's gotten me to eat better so taht's good

Actually... last year about december 6th or so... Cutler paid for a group of Type 1 kids from this area (southern Indiana.. he's from a town called Santa Claus, Indiana... about 30 minutes north of where I am)... to attend a Bears game (he was out with his broken thumb or whatever)... met the kids on the field before the game... gave a big check for $25K to help fund a summer camp for Type 1 kids at Camp Carson (a YMCA affiliated camp in Princeton, IN). Cutler covered the expenses, hotel for friday night, game saturday... my wife and son were on the field. I think the Bears played on Christmas day and they played a clip during the game of the presentation of the check and some interviews with the YMCA camp director and a couple of the kids...

clip about the donation.

oh... and southern indiana JDRF group holds an annual 'walk' to raise money in May each year in Santa Claus Indiana at a place called Holiday World (Will Koch, who grew the park and ran it for the past 20 years or so was a Type 1 diabetic who passed away 2 years ago at the age of 48). Anyway, the year the NFL was on strike, Cutler attended the JDRF walk and signed a lot of stuff and had pictures taken with a lot of kids... he was very nice...

Not really sure what you mean by "pendemic" (pandemic makes no sense) so I won't comment on that. A disease is any disorder that produces a set of symptoms so I'd call diabetes a disease because there is a particular dysfunction that is causing an inadequate or no release of insulin (type 1) or a problem in the use of insulin (type 2). It sounds like you liken the term disease to infection or some external source, when a lot of diseases are genetic or autoimmune (or both) and need no external vector.

You aren't totally wrong. It's a common end result of a multitude of causes. Type 1 is generally the result of an autoimmune malfunction killing the islet cells. (Sometimes it's trauma or other stuff.) Type 2 is longer onset, generally speaking as a result of "overuse." There's also gestational diabetes, resulting from hormonal weirdness during pregnancy, and a few other, less common types. But the result and treatments are related, so they get grouped together.

netringer: ZeroCorpse: Too bad there's not a disease that can improve her acting talent.

Yeah. It's a true Hollywood scandal Halle Berry got her Oscar solely through affirmative action.


Yes, because the Academy Awards are all about talent and not at all a politicized popularity contest.

The integrity of the Academy can't be denied! That's why The Godfather II won Best Picture and Chinatown was only nominated that year. And CLEARLY, Raiders of the Lost Ark deserved to not win, so OBVIOUSLY the Academy knows talent and great acting when they see it.

Nobody said anything about affirmative action (`cept you) but I do think Halle's win was about electing a prom king and queen that would please other actors and industry insiders, and not at all about good acting, because both Halle and Denzel kinda suck.

If you need proof, check out her flat delivery of the "toad lightning" line, or her awful attempt at an African accent (only to drop it in the next film) for the X-Men movies. She can't do much more than play herself, much like Kevin Costner.

And Denzel's only emotions seem to be "intensity" (talking quietly with clipped speech) and "anger" ("I'M SHOUTING BECAUSE I AM ANGRY, SEE?")

Better actors worked that year. I don't know what the Academy's trip was, but it wasn't about picking the best actors. It was about crowning a king and queen of Hollywood.
