Halle Berry Makes Donation After ‘Monster’s Ball’ Co-Star Coronji Calhoun Sr. Dies at 30
The former Bond girl, along with producer Lee Daniels, has donated to the family mourning the loss of the actor who played her onscreen son in 2001’s Oscar-winning movie.
AceShowbiz –Coronji Calhoun Sr., who played Halle Berry‘s son in the Oscar-winning movie “Monster’s Ball“, has died aged 30.
His mother, Theresa C. Bailey, confirmed that Coronji passed away on 13 October (21) from congestive heart failure and lung problems.
A GoFundMe page was established to raise money for a “sacred celebration of life” for Coronji, with donations standing at $10,220 (£7,612) as WENN went to press.
Among those who donated was Berry – who made history by becoming the first woman of colour to win the Best Actress Oscar for her role in the film – and “Monster’s Ball” producer Lee Daniels. They both gave $3,394 (£2,527) each.
“We are blown away by the outpouring of love the community and Coronji’s adopted family has shown during our process of grief,” Bailey wrote on the fundraising page on Wednesday (10Nov21).
“As we close this chapter, we ask that in your remembrance of him, you remember to love your neighbour as yourself, because that is what Coronji did for his entire community.”
Coronji won the role of Tyrell Musgrove – the son of Halle’s Leticia Musgrove – following an open casting call in Louisiana. The film was his only screen credit.
According to reports, Coronji was one of six children and is survived by his siblings, as well as a 10-year-old son and 13-year-old stepson.
