Shaq Sent a Love Letter to Halle Berry in College & She Wrote Back
My years could be off, but when Shaq was at LSU Halle Berry was dating MLB player David Justice, so she might have a thing for athletes. Back in the day before Shaq could send suspect emails he would write letters.
Shaq writing a letter is a scary proposition, but it seemed to get the job done.
Here is an excerpt from Shaq’s book explaining how he was trying to become Mr. Berry.
I remember being in the dorm room one night and we were watching the movie Jungle Fever with Halle Berry in it, and I thought she was so stunning, so I wrote her a letter. I was just kind of kidding around, telling her I was a big fan and I’d love to meet her sometime. The guys totally goofed on me for doing it, but I didn’t care. A few weeks later, no lie, Halle Berry wrote me back. She sent me a signed picture that I still have hanging in my office. Turns out she’s a basketball fan. She wrote, “I’m a big fan of yours, too. I can’t wait until you get to the NBA.”
Halle Berry could have been on Basketball Wives?
How about that.
