Teaming up with Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott on Celebrity IOUHalle Berry is giving back to her fifth-grade teacher Yvonne, who has been her mentor for 40 years. The Bruised star has channeled her inner action-packed characters and roles to incorporate the same into the house’s renovation and remodelling to give her teacher a perfect tribute.
The actress opened up about her teacher’s impact on her life and her growth as a person and said:
“If she hadn’t come into my life, my life would have been completely different. She was really like a second mother in many ways.”
The Celebrity IOU guest continued to reminisce about her childhood and how her teacher Yvonne was a big part of her life when she lived in Cleveland, Ohio.
“My mom was a single mom, so she worked a lot. My sister and I were very much latchkey kids. She sort of took me in under her wing. I had a white mother and she, being a Black woman, taught me about my culture.”
The actress continued:
“We had this thing called cookie talks. I would go to her house and we would sit at the kitchen table and have really deep conversations.”
In an exclusive clip shared by HGTV, Halle Berry helps with the demolition of the house with the help of Celebrity IOU hosts Drew and Jonathan Scott. The brothers asked her if she was competitive or aggressive, to which the actress said:
“Very. That’s why I do those movies. Yes, aggressive. Yes, competitive.”
Halle Berry opened up about this attitude in a confessional and said:
“I am competitive if somebody says, ‘Show me how you can beat the crap out of something.’ I want to be the best.”
The brothers were impressed with her skills as they worked together to demolish the kitchen. The hosts realized that all her action-packed roles in movies have helped her ease into this role on the show and do a great job on the demolition.
