‘All her hair, which is past her shoulders, has shrunken up into a tight ball that feels like matted fur.
I can’t even get my finger in it, and I’m pulling and she’s screaming.’ The 53-year-old explained that she tried to help by conditioning her daughter’s hair and combing it through, but ended up having to shave part of it off.
When Jimmy asked is Nahla minded, Halle admitted; ‘She was not cool with that, but it was our only option. But now she gets it. ‘I was like, “First of all, maybe you’ll let your mother help you. And second of all, you learned you gotta brush your hair. Every day, you gotta brush your hair.”‘
Elsewhere in her interview, Halle – who is also mum to son Maceo, six – also revealed that Pierce Brosnan once saved her life during a scene from their James Bond movie Die Another Day.
‘I was supposed to be all sexy, trying to seduce him with a fig, and then I end up choking on it and he had to get up and do the Heimlich. ‘James Bond knows how to Heimlich! He was there for me, he will always be one of my favourite people in the whole world.’
