Jared Goff checks into a play called 'Halle Berry' and the actress notices on Twitter
Goff and Berry partook in a little back and forth over his choice of audibles
Halle Berry is no longer just an Academy Award winning actress. "Halle Berry" is also the name of Jared Goff's favorite play.
On Sunday, during the early going of the Los Angeles Rams' game against the Seahawks, microphones picked up Goff shouting out instructions at the line of scrimmage. By the sound of it, Goff checked into a play called "Halle Berry," which sounds remarkably similar to the name of a certain actress who won an Oscar for her performance in "Monster's Ball," a movie that came out when Goff was 7 years old.
Yep, that's definitely what Goff was saying:
Well, that's fun. Time to move on.
Except that ... Berry noticed. So, she asked Goff and the Rams for an explanation.
When Goff found out that she'd tweeted about it, he reacted appropriately.
"Wait, hold on, are you serious?" Goff said, per ESPN. "She heard it!"
Naturally, Goff responded to her directly. He explained that it's his favorite play.
And that's how "Halle Berry" became the best line-of-scrimmage verbiage since "Omaha" and McVay said he named the play after Berry because of her beauty, and that it was a compliment to the Oscar winner.", the Rams' choice of words is much easier to explain. Berry is a famous actress. The Rams are from Los Angeles. As ESPN's Lindsey Thiry reported, "
The Rams went on to beat the Seahawks, which moved their record to 9-1. Meanwhile, Berry is set to appear in "John Wick: Chapter 3."
