Berry's Tribute To Cheadle

HALLE BERRY paid a bizarre glowing tribute to actor pal DON CHEADLE at the Spirit of Independence Awards on Sunday (29Jun08) - revealing his love of ironing, golf, Tai Chi, and cartoons.
Berry presented Cheadle with the prize at the event, part of the Los Angeles Film Festival, and regaled the star-studded audience with some personal information about the Ocean's Eleven actor.
She said, "I'm here to tell you tonight what you don't know about Don Cheadle. He loves to iron. He loves to iron so much he went and got one of those steamers, like a professional steamer.
"Don has a putting green in his backyard that he built so he can just putt, putt, putt, putt, putt and much to (wife) Bridget's dismay, he's always out there putting.
"Ladies might want to know how Don keeps his sexy figure - 'cause he's hot, he's kinda got a sexy thing going on. He does Tai Chi every morning, or every other morning."
She added, "Don is a funny, funny man in life and in movies he's really funny. You know what makes him laugh? Any Pixar film. I don't know what that says about him other than he has not been able to give up cartoons."
She concluded her speech with the tribute: "Don, I want you to know that I admire you, I respect you. Your heart is one of the biggest of anybody, not only in this town, but anybody that I know and I'm honoured to call you my friend."
Cheadle succeeds actor-turned-director Clint Eastwood, who won the award in 2007.
