Halle Berry has a juicy secret to share about her X-Men character and a certain clawed mutant.
During an interview with PEOPLE and EW editorial director Jess Cagle, the actress revealed that Berry’s Storm and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine had some romantic history in their X-Men movie universe.
“Storm and Logan used to be lovers,” she said. “It’s true. Storm and Logan had a thing.”
Indeed, it is true — in a deleted scene from Bryan Singer’s 2014 sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, Logan kisses Storm goodbye before traveling back in time to change the course of history. Berry says she and Jackman kept the material for their characters’ backstories. “I joke in the movies, I’m like, ‘How come nobody’s loving on Storm.’ Like what’s wrong with Storm? Nobody is checking for Storm,” she said. “So, we decided that Storm and Logan had a thing, and then Jean came and messed that up.”
Berry described the Storm-Wolverine relationship as “wonderful,” but only “for a time.”
“When he really decided that Jean Grey was his [love] … that caused a problem,” she said. Storm was heartbroken in the aftermath, but Berry maintains “the having two girls at once thing, that didn’t work for … that doesn’t work for Storm.”
