Berry would do ‘Catwoman 2’

“Catwoman” star Halle Berry said she’d gladly slip into the skintight catsuit again, undaunted by a weak start for the movie in the United States.

“I think I’m really hoping to do another ‘Catwoman,”’ Berry told reporters Thursday ahead of the film’s German premiere.

Berry, who slinks through the movie in midriff-baring black leather, pointed to the satisfaction that comes from a good whip-crack.

“Everybody just wanted to crack that whip,” she said. “When you get your first crack, you just want to keep on cracking.”

Co-star Benjamin Bratt was a bit less adept: “My first and only attempt ended up with me smacking myself in the back of the head. I left it to the professionals.”

The $100 million movie opened in the United States to a cool critical response, coming in third at the box office at $16.7 million — behind “The Bourne Identity” and “I, Robot.”

“We were a little disappointed that we were not No. 1,” producer Denise Di Novi told reporters.
