Halle Berry’s weepy, over-the-top performance at the Oscars surprised a lot of viewers — none, it turns out, more than Berry herself. ”I wasn’t in my right head all night — it was like I was out of my body — but the next morning, when I saw it on tape, I thought, ‘Oh, my God! I’m out of control,”’ confesses the Best Actress winner, currently in London following up her Monster’s Ball triumph by modeling a retro Ursula Andress-style bikini for the latest James Bond flick, Die Another Day. ”I had a breakdown, that’s what I did. I couldn’t utter a word. I felt like a babbling idiot.” Still, she has no regrets. ”I spoke from the heart and forced a lot of people to think,” she adds, ”which always feels good.”
