    Hugh and Halle meet Mexican fans at X-Men premiere May 16, 2006

    By Kimberly Chase

    Mexico City - Hollywood stars Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman said on Monday that they hope their new film - X-Men: The Last Stand - will inspire Latin American audiences to be true to themselves and to value their heritage.

    Berry spoke of empowering people of colour through the movie, which has a diverse cast of characters and debuts in Mexican theatres on May 26.

    "I think we have to continue to force people to accept us for who we are and the way we are," she told journalists at a Mexico City hotel.

    Wearing an embroidered yellow halterneck top and with loose, brown curls falling over her shoulders, Berry said the Monday night showing would be her first time viewing the movie from start to finish.

    "I'm going to see it tonight at the Mexican premiere with all the fans," she said. "I'm really excited."

    Directed by Brett Ratner, the film is the third in a series based on the X-Men comic books about mutant super-heroes and villains whose special abilities make them feared by the world's human majority.

    Berry said she wanted to depict a strong woman in her portrayal of Storm, who has the ability to control the weather. Berry added that she fought to keep faithful to the comic book version of Storm, which she felt was stronger and more interesting than in the original screenplay.

    "If I'm only on camera for five minutes, that's fine, but let it be five meaningful minutes," she said. "It's not fun to play a woman who does nothing."

    Jackman, who portrays the metal-clawed Wolverine, said he also felt the movie could empower audiences and in particular help adolescents feel confident about themselves.

    "They should follow what their instincts are," he said.

    Jackman added that he thought the film's action and special effects would "resonate" with fans involved in Mexico's comic book culture.

    The Australian actor said he'd be interested in continuing the role of Wolverine, but Berry said that after playing Storm in the three X-Men movies and the title role in 2004's Catwoman, she hoped for a more ordinary role in her next film.

    "I think I'm done," she said. "I'm fresh out of super-heroes at this point." - Sapa-AP

    I'm glad to see Halle actually happy to promote this film and with the role she deserves! I only wish that was Marsden standing beside her! It's sad now looking at that photo when in X1 there was 4 main X-Men(Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops and Jean) but now in X3 2 are dead. It's gonna be emotional!:(

    I'm happy Halle seems excited about this film. Slightly bummed that she doesn't want to do another one, Though I can't blame her. It's just going to hard to get a sequel when Storm is left being the leader.

    BTW i think the folks from IESB are wrong Storm being wallpaper in the first 2 films (she didn't do anything). Maybe they're just sucking up so they could interview her.

    They'll do promotion, don't worry. I think Rebecca said everybody will do their bit. Some will split up in groups over the world.

    Anna and Shawn were promoting the film in San Francisco. Ian has another film to promote but will be at Cannes. I've been wondering why we have seen Patrick Stewart - he hasn't even shown up on british tv.

    They look great. Halle and Hugh have come a loooooong way from the B and C-list stars they were when 2000's X-Men came out. :up:
