Halle Berry is playing the part of an alcoholic in the new movie "Monster's Ball" and the star has done a great job, thanks to her father.

In the movie, Berry plays a character named Leticia who is left to raise a young child when her husband is executed.

At a recent news conference, Berry said she had taken inspiration from her own childhood and alcoholic father.

Berry's own mother struggled to raise her two children after being abandoned by her heavy drinking husband.

Berry said her own father, "had never been loved himself," and it was something that the film's characters experience themselves.

let's just hope Berry's father didn't give her the inspiration for the topless scene in her last movie, otherwise we'll be rally concerned!
