Angela Bassett and Halle Berry

Actress and Yale graduate Bassett threw a passive-aggressive diss toward Halle Berry when Bassett revealed that she turned down Berry's role in Monster's Ball because she felt the part was demeaning and stereotypical. "It's about character, darling," she said. "I wasn't going to be a prostitute on film. I couldn't do that because it's such a stereotype about Black women and sexuality." Well, Berry has an Oscar on her shelf for playing the part, so we think she had the last laugh on this one.
