The two celebrities met at Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday (May 22). Waithe was supposed to make a speech and said she was some kind of nervous and needed somebody to cheer her up. And there was no better candidature for it than Halle Berry, who appeared and asked what she could do for a lesbian filmmaker at the moment. “I need some inspiration, like that Oscars speech you gave that got me hyped,” Waithe replied, referring to Berry’s historic 2002 Best Actress win—the first time a black woman had ever received the honor, “I need you to give me some of that Halle Berry juice.” “I know that you are a force of nature. You are a beautiful African American queen. You about to slay this show!” Berry said, also praising Waithe’s gender free sweatshot made by Stuzo Clothing, before quipping that she had not yet given Lena everything she needed, and then giving her a kiss on lips.
