Halle Berry Apologizes for Jewish Joke Video

Who's sorry now?

Actress Halle Berry was on Jay Leno hyping her loser movie Things We Lost In The Fire and mentioned a pic of her Jewish cousin....with a big nose, of course. Oops. NBC apparently edited it out, but the damage was done. PS weird karma hyping THAT movie in LA during fire season..

According to one audience member, "She introduced the first photo by saying, 'Here's where I look like my Jewish cousin!' - it was a picture of her with a huge, distorted nose. No one laughed, and Jay nervously said, 'I'm glad you said that and not me.' When the show aired, they cut out her 'Jewish' comment and added a laugh track to the bit."

Another guest in the audience told us, "If you watch the clip, you can see Halle saying the word 'Jewish,' though obviously there is no audio. NBC covered her a - -. Ms. Berry should know how unbelievably inappropriate her comment was . . . She should be ashamed of herself."

Berry, 41, who sounded like she was near tears, told Page Six last night: "I so didn't mean to offend anybody - and after the show I realized it could be seen as offensive, so I asked Jay to take it out, and he did."
