In 1991, Halle Berry made her screen debut in Spike Lee's Jungle Fever, as a drug addict and the love interest of Samuel L. Jackson. So committed was she to the role, she famously didn't wash herself for several weeks of filming. While her part was small, her powerful performance sparked the beginning of an epic career. Without Jungle Fever, we wouldn't have got the legendary Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner we have today. Clearly, this was no beginner's luck.
