NFL player Jared Goff used Halle Berry’s name to audible out of a play on Sunday. The actress took to Twitter with a question for Goff.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff called out Berry’s name three times early in the first quarter of their game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Rams were trailing by seven points at the time, and the 24-year-old was appearing to change a first-quarter play call when mics caught him saying the Hollywood star’s name.
In no time, video of the moment circulated online and went viral. It reached the “Catwoman” actress who couldn’t help reacting. Sharing a video of the moment, Berry asked:
“Hold up. @JaredGoff16 @RamsNFL - What is a “Halle Berry”??”
She added a thinking emoji and a laughing one, so she didn’t seem to mind the mention. Berry’s tweet also went viral, with fans coming up with hilarious theories behind the team’s use of Berry’s name.
After the game, which the Rams eventually won 36 to 31, Goff responded to Berry’s question with an answer:
“It’s my favorite play ever.”
Before that confident reply, however, Goff was shocked and excited when he first heard in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum locker room that Berry, 52, tweeted about his call.
"Wait, hold on, are you serious?" Goff asked. "She heard it!"
ESPN reports that he quickly searched for the tweet and grew in increasingly animated as he showed it to teammates and coaches.
Goff also said:
"It's so funny. The thing is, when [McVay] called it, I was like, 'It's so quiet right now, this is going to get on TV.'"
The player refused to reveal the details of the play and Coach Sean McVay, who named it, did not disclose why he christened it after the “X-Men” star.
He did say, however, that the naming was meant as a compliment to the Oscar-winning actress. "She's a very attractive woman that players know," McVay said. "And it's related to the play."
It’s no surprise the Rams would choose to honor the actress whose career has spanned almost 30 years. Berry turned 52 in August, but the mother-of-two still looks as amazing as ever.
She has been spotted in the last couple of months, hanging out with her kids and living her best life.
