Halle: You've always been different and your ability to be your authentic self inspires me. I don't know if there are a ton of people who are really confident and free enough to live their life that way.
Whoopi: When you were nominated for Monster's Ball, Halle, I have to say, I just wanted to kind of hang out with you. Because I thought you had a lot to say, and I wondered what kind of woman you were. So for you to give me this beautiful gift of saying that I helped inspire you is a real acknowledgement. It's such an honor and a thrill. I've wanted to say, "Hi, do you know me? I'd like you to know me."
